Introduction
Power supply
The power supply converts standard 110 or 230 VAC to DC voltages for the various switch
circuits. Four internal fans provide cooling. The switch monitors internal air temperature, and
therefore does not monitor or report fan operational status. Air flows into the switch from the
bezel side and is exhausted from the port side of the switch.
To apply power to the switch, plug the power cord into the switch AC receptacle, and then into
a 110 or 230 VAC power source.
Note: The power supply and fans are not field replaceable units.
Serial port
The switch is equipped with an RS-232 serial port, to access the Command Line Interface for
advanced configuration tasks and maintenance purposes. (Figure 1)
The serial port connector requires a null-modem female/female DB9 cable, using the pin
configuration and connection information as detailed in “Cable pin configurations” on
page 64.
Chassis LEDs
The chassis LEDs (Figure 2) provide status information about switch operation.

HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Installation Guide
Introduction
Heartbeat LED (green)
The Heartbeat LED indicates the status of the internal switch processor and the results of the
Power On Self Test (POST).
Following a normal power-up, the Heartbeat LED blinks about once per second to indicate
that the switch passed the POST and that the internal switch processor is running. In
maintenance mode, the Heartbeat LED illuminates continuously. The Heartbeat LED also
shows a blink code for POST errors and the over temperature condition. See “Heartbeat LED
blink patterns” on page 42 for more information.
System Fault LED (solid amber)
The System Fault LED illuminates to indicate an over temperature condition or a POST error
and the Heartbeat LED shows a blink code that defines the condition. See “Heartbeat LED
blink patterns” on page 42 for more information.
Ethernet port
The Ethernet port (Figure 3) is an RJ-45 connector that provides a connection to a
management workstation through a 10/100 Base-T Ethernet cable. The workstation can be a
Windows® or a Linux® workstation that is used for advanced configuration and management
tasks. You can manage the switch over the Ethernet connection using Switch Manager, the
Command Line Interface (CLI), or SNMP. The switch through which the fabric is managed is
called the fabric management switch.

Introduction
Maintenance button
The Maintenance button is a dual-function momentary switch on the front panel. (Figure 1)
Its purpose is to reset the switch or place the switch in maintenance mode. See “Maintenance
mode options” on page 47 for more information.
Resetting the switch
Use a pointed tool, such as an opened paper clip, to momentarily press and release (less than 2
seconds) the Maintenance button.
The switch responds as follows:
■
All chassis LEDs illuminate, and then the System Fault LED extinguishes, leaving only
the Input Power LED and Heartbeat LED illuminated.
■
After approximately 1 minute, the power-on self test (POST) begins, extinguishing the
Heartbeat LED.
■
When the POST is complete, the Input Power LED is illuminated and the Heartbeat LED
flashes once per second.
Placing the switch in maintenance mode
1. Isolate the switch from the fabric.
2. Press and hold the Maintenance button with a pointed tool until the Heartbeat LED alone
is illuminated (between 2–7 seconds).
3. After approximately 1 minute, the POST begins illuminating all chassis LEDs.
4. When the POST is complete, the chassis LEDs extinguish, leaving only the Heartbeat
LED illuminated. The Heartbeat LED illuminates continuously while the switch is in
maintenance mode.
Exiting maintenance mode
To exit maintenance mode and return to normal operation, momentarily press and release the
Maintenance button to reset the switch.

Introduction
Fibre Channel ports and LEDs
The switch has eight Fibre Channel ports, numbered 0–7. (Figure 4)
Each Fibre Channel port is served by a 2 Gbps Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP) optical
transceiver. SFPs are hot-pluggable. User ports self-discover both the port type and
transmission speed of the connected devices. The Fibre Channel port LEDs are located above
their respective ports and provide port log-in and activity status information.

Figure 4: Fibre Channel port and LED locations
Port Logged-in LED (green)
The Logged-in LED indicates the logged-in or initialization status of the connected devices.
After successful completion of the POST, the switch extinguishes all Logged-in LEDs.
Following a successful loop initialization or port login, the switch illuminates the
corresponding logged-in LED. This shows that the port is properly connected and able to
communicate with its attached devices. The Logged-in LED remains illuminated as long as the
port is initialized or logged in. If the port connection is broken or an error occurs that disables
the port, the Logged-in LED flashes. See “Logged-In LED indications” on page 44 for more
information.
Port Activity LED (green)
The Activity LED indicates that data is passing through the port. Each frame that the port
transmits or receives causes this LED to illuminate for 50 milliseconds. This makes it possible
to observe the transmission of a single frame. When extending credits, the Activity LED for a
donor port will reflect the traffic of the recipient port. See “Distance” on page 24 for more
information about extended credits and donor ports.

Introduction
SFP transceivers
The switch supports SFP optical transceivers for the Fibre Channel ports. A transceiver
converts electrical signals to and from optical laser signals to transmit and receive data.
Duplex fiber optic cables plug into the transceivers, which then connect to the devices. A Fibre
Channel port is capable of transmitting at 1 Gbps or 2 Gbps; however, the transceiver must be
capable of 2 Gbps for the port to deliver at that rate.
SFP transceivers are hot pluggable. This means that you can remove or install a transceiver
while the switch is operating, without harming the switch or the transceiver. However,
communication with the connected device is interrupted. See “Install SFP transceivers” on
page 34 for information.
Port types
The switch supports generic ports (G_Port, GL_Port) and fabric ports (F_Port, FL_Port).
Switches come from the factory with all Fibre Channel ports configured as GL_Ports.
Ports function as follows:
18
■
A GL_Port self-configures as an FL_Port when connected to a public loop device, and as
an F_Port when connected to a single public device.
■
A G_Port self-configures as an F_Port when connected to a single public device.
■
An FL_Port supports a loop of up to 126 public devices. An FL_Port can also configure
itself during the fabric login process as an F_Port when connected to a single public device
(N_Port).
■
An F_Port supports a single public device. If the device is a single device on a loop, the
GL_Port will attempt to configure first as an F_Port, then if that fails, as an FL_Port.

Introduction
Switch management
Fabrics are managed with following tools:
■
Switch Manager user interface
■
Command Line Interface
■
File Transfer Protocol
■
Simple Network Management Protocol
Switch Manager user interface
Switch Manager is a workstation-based Java® application that provides a graphical user
interface for fabric management. This application runs on a Windows or Linux workstation. A
management workstation connects to the fabric through the Ethernet port of one or more
switches and can provide in-band management for all other switches in the fabric. See
“Management System Requirements” on page 63 for connection information and to the HP
StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Management User Guide for information about
Switch Manager.
Command Line Interface
The CLI provides monitoring and configuration functions by which the administrator can
manage the fabric and its switches, and can be accessed over an Ethernet connection or a serial
connection. See “Management System Requirements” on page 63 for connection information
and refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Management User Guide for
information about the CLI.
File Transfer Protocol
FTP provides the command line interface for exchanging files between the switch and the
management workstation. These files include firmware image files, configuration files, and
log files.
Simple Network Management Protocol
SNMP provides monitoring and trap functions for the fabric. This switch supports SNMP
versions 1 and 2, the Fibre Alliance Management Information Base (FA-MIB) version 4.0, and
the Fabric Element Management Information Base (FE-MIB) RFC 2837. Traps can be
formatted using SNMP version 1 or 2. Refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel
Switch SNMP Reference Guide for more information.

When planning a fabric, consider the number of public devices and the anticipated demand.
This determines the number of ports that are needed and in turn the number of switches.
Consider how many and what types of switches are needed.
Consider the distribution of targets and initiators. An F_Port supports a single public device.
An FL_Port can support up to 126 public devices in an arbitrated loop.
Device access
Consider device access needs within the fabric. Access is controlled by the use of zones and
zone sets.
Some zoning strategies include:
■
Grouping devices by operating system.
■
Separating devices that have no need to communicate with other devices in the fabric or
have classified data.
■
Separating devices into department, administrative, or other functional group.
■
Reserving a path and its bandwidth from one port to another.
A zone is a named group of devices that can communicate with each other. Membership in a
zone can be defined by domain ID and switch port number, port Fibre Channel address, or by
device worldwide name (WWN). Devices can communicate only with devices within the same
zone. A zone can be a member of more than one zone set. Several zone sets can be defined for
a fabric, but only one zone set can be active at one time. The active zone set determines the
current fabric zoning.
A zoning database is maintained on each switch consisting of all inactive zone sets, the active
zone set, all zones, aliases, and their membership. Refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre
Channel Switch Management User Guide for more information about zoning.
The two types of zones are:
■
Hard zones (Access Control Lists)
■
Soft zones

Hard zones (Access Control Lists)
Access Control List (ACL) zoning divides the fabric for purposes of controlling discovery and
inbound traffic. ACL zoning is a type of hard zoning that is hardware enforced. This type of
zoning is useful for controlling access to certain devices without totally isolating them from
the fabric. Members can communicate with each other and transmit outside the ACL zone, but
cannot receive inbound traffic from outside the zone. The following rules apply to ACL zones:
■
The ACL zone boundary is secure against inbound traffic.
■
ACL zones can overlap; that is, a port can be a member of more than one ACL zone.
■
ACL zone boundaries supersede soft zone boundaries.
■
Membership can be defined only by domain ID and port ID. A switch port can be a
member of multiple ACL zones whose combined membership does not exceed 128.
Soft zones
Soft zoning divides the fabric for purposes of controlling device discovery. Devices in the
same soft zone automatically discover and communicate freely with all other members of the
same zone. The soft zone boundary is not secure; traffic across soft zones can occur if
addressed correctly. The following rules apply to soft zones:
■
Soft zone boundaries yield to ACL zone boundaries.
■
Soft zones can overlap; that is, a port can be a member of more than one soft zone.
■
Membership can be defined by Fibre Channel address, domain ID and port number, or
worldwide name.
■
Soft zoning supports FL_Ports and F_Ports.

Performance
The switch supports class 2 and class 3 Fibre Channel service at transmission rates of 2 Gbps,
with a maximum frame size of 2148 bytes.
Related performance characteristics include:
■
Distance
■
Bandwidth
■
Latency
Distance
Consider the physical distribution of devices and switches in the fabric. See “Specifications”
on page 59 for more information about cable types and transceivers.
Each Fibre Channel port is supported by a data buffer with a 16 credit capacity; that is, 16
maximum sized frames. For fiber optic cables, this enables full bandwidth over a distance of
13 kilometers at 2 Gbps (1.2 credits/Km). Beyond this distance, however, there is some loss of
efficiency because the transmitting port must wait for an acknowledgement before sending the
next frame.
Longer distances can be spanned at full bandwidth by extending credits to the ports. Each port
can donate 15 credits to a pool from which a recipient port can borrow. The recipient port also
loses a credit in the process. For example, you can configure a recipient port to borrow 15
credits from one donor port for a total of 30 credits (15+15=30). This supports communication
over approximately 25 Km at 2 Gbps (30÷1.2).
Bandwidth
Bandwidth is a measure of the volume of data that can be transmitted at a given transmission
rate. The Fibre Channel ports transmit and receive at a rate of 2 Gbps, for a maximum
bandwidth of 200 MB.
Latency
Latency is a measure of how fast a frame travels from one port to another. Factors that affect
latency include transmission rate and the source/destination port relationship. 2 Gbps to
2 Gbps transmissions have a latency factor < 0.4 µsec.

Planning
Fabric security
Fabric security consists of the following:
■
User account security
■
Simple Network Management Protocol security
User account security
User account security consists of account names, passwords, expiration dates, and authority
levels. If an account has Admin authority, all management tasks can be performed by that
account in both Switch Manager and the CLI. Without Admin authority, only monitoring tasks
are available. The default account name, Admin, is the only account that can create or change
account names and passwords. Account names and passwords are required when connecting to
a switch. Consider your management needs and determine the number of user accounts, their
authority needs, and expiration dates.
Simple Network Management Protocol security
SNMP is the protocol governing network management and monitoring of network devices,
and is enabled by default. SNMP security consists of a read community string and a write
community string, which are the passwords that control read and write access to the switch.
The read community string ("public") and write community string ("private") are set at the
factory to these well-known defaults and should be changed. If the read and write community
strings have not been changed from their defaults, you risk unwanted access to the switch.
Fabric management
Switch Manager and the CLI execute on a management workstation that provides for the
advanced configuration, control, and maintenance of the fabric. Supported platforms include
Windows and Linux. Consider how many fabrics will be managed, how many management
workstations are needed, and whether the fabrics will be managed with the CLI or Switch
Manager.
A switch supports a combined maximum of 19 logins reserved as follows:
■
4 logins or sessions for internal applications such as management server and SNMP
■
9 high priority Telnet sessions
■
6 logins or sessions for Switch Manager logins and Telnet logins. Additional logins are
refused.
See “Management System Requirements” on page 63 for connection information and refer to
the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Management User Guide for information
about using these management tools.

Mount the switch
The 2/8q FC Switch can be placed on a stable flat surface or mounted in a 19” EIA rack. When
placing the switch on a flat surface, attach the provided adhesive rubber feet to the bottom of
the switch and then place the switch on work surface.
When mounting the switch in a rack, do the following:
WARNING: Mount devices in the rack so that the weight is distributed evenly. An
unevenly loaded rack can become unstable, possibly resulting in equipment damage or
personal injury.
Caution: If the switch is mounted in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, make sure that
the operating temperature inside the rack enclosure does not exceed the maximum rated
ambient temperature. See “Environmental” on page 61.
■ Do not restrict chassis air flow. Allow 16 cm (6.5 in) minimum clearance at the front
and rear of the switch or rack for service access and ventilation.
■ Multiple rack-mounted units connected to the AC supply circuit may overload that
circuit or overload the AC supply wiring. Consider the power source capacity and the
total power usage of all switches on the circuit. See “Electrical” on page 61.
■ Reliable grounding in the rack must be maintained.
1. Obtain the 2U rack template and the 2U rail kit from the SAN Kit carton.
2. Obtain the switch mounting adapter brackets and screws from the 2/8q FC Switch carton.
3. Use the template as a guide to mark the location for the rails in the rack.
a. Hold the template up to the rack, and when the template is level, push the template
tabs into the rack holes to hold the template in place. (Figure 6)
b. Use a pencil to mark the locations of the rail pins on the rack.
Figure 6: Using the rack template
Note: If the holes in the rack are round instead of square, remove the standard pins from the rails
and replace them with the round-hole pins provided with the rail kit.

Install SFP transceivers
The switch has been validated with transceivers that support a variety of interconnection
media. To install a transceiver, insert the transceiver into the port and gently push in on the
SFP until the it snaps in place. To remove a transceiver, gently press the transceiver into the
port to release the tension, and then pull out on the release tab to remove the transceiver from
the chassis.
Note: The transceiver fits only one way in the port. If the transceiver does not install under gentle
pressure, pull it out of the port, turn it over, and re-insert it.

Connect power to the switch
WARNING: This product is supplied with a 3-wire power cable and plug. Use this power
cable in conjunction with a properly grounded outlet to avoid electrical shock. An electrical
outlet that is incorrectly wired could place hazardous voltage on metal parts of the switch
chassis.
■ A different power cable than the one supplied may be required in some countries.
■ For 125 Volt electrical service, the cable must be rated at 10 Amps and be approved
by UL and CSA.
■ For 250 Volt electrical service, the cable must be rated at 10 Amps, meet the
requirements of H05VV-F, and be approved by VDE, SEMKO, and DEMKO.
1. Connect the power cord to the AC power port on the switch chassis and to a grounded AC
outlet or uninterruptible power supply.
2. Verify that the chassis LEDs illuminate, followed by all port Logged-in LEDs.
3. After a few moments, verify that the chassis System Fault LED is extinguished while the
Input Power LED and Heartbeat LED remain illuminated.
4. Wait approximately one minute for the POST to complete, and the following LED pattern
to begin:
— The Input Power LED remains illuminated indicating that the switch logic circuitry is
receiving DC voltage. If not, contact your authorized maintenance provider.
— The Heartbeat LED indicates the results of the POST. The POST tests the condition of
firmware, memories, data-paths, and switch logic circuitry. If the Heartbeat LED
blinks steadily about once per second, the POST was successful, and you can continue
with the installation process. Any other blink pattern indicates that an error has
occurred. See “Heartbeat LED blink patterns” on page 42 for more information about
error blink patterns.

Backing up the switch configuration
Backing up and restoring a configuration is useful to protect your work or to use as a template
in configuring other switches. The CLI Config Backup command creates a file on the
switch, named configdata. This file can be used to restore a switch configuration only from
the command line interface; it cannot be used to restore a switch using Switch Manager.
The configdata file contains all of the switch configuration information including:
■
All named switch configurations, including the default configuration. This includes port,
switch, port threshold alarm, and zoning configuration components.
■
All SNMP and network information defined with the Set Setup command.
■
The zoning database included all zone sets, zones, and aliases.
Use FTP to download the configdata file to your workstation for safe keeping and to
upload the file back to the switch for the restore function.
See “Management System Requirements” on page 63 for information about connecting a
workstation to the switch and refer to “Backing up a switch configuration” in the HP
StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Management User Guide, for procedural details.
Powering down the switch
Simply unplugging the switch from the power source does not allow the switch to complete
executing tasks and could lead to flash memory corruption.
To initiate an orderly shut down, access the CLI and execute the Shutdown command. Then,
power down the switch by unplugging the power cord.
See“Management System Requirements” on page 63 for information about connecting a
workstation to the switch and refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch
Management User Guide for information about the CLI.

Installing
Updating switch firmware
The switch comes with firmware installed. You can upgrade the firmware from the
management workstation as new firmware becomes available. Firmware updates are availabe
on the MSA1000 web site at www.hp.com/go/msa1000.
See“Management System Requirements” on page 63 for information about connecting a
workstation to the switch and refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch
Management User Guide for detailed information about Switch Manager and the CLI.
Note: You can load and activate new firmware on an operating switch without disrupting data
traffic or having to re-initialize attached devices. If you attempt to perform a non-disruptive
activation without satisfying the following conditions, the switch will perform a disruptive activation:
■ No changes are being made to switches in the fabric including powering up, powering down,
and changing the switch configuration.
■ No port in the fabric is in the diagnostic state.
■ No zoning changes are being made in the fabric.
■ No changes are being made to attached devices including powering up, powering down,
disconnecting, connecting, and HBA configuration changes.
Ports that are stable when the non-disruptive activation begins, but then change states, are reset.
When the non-disruptive activation is complete, Switch Manager sessions reconnect automatically.
However, Telnet sessions must be restarted manually.
Using Switch Manager to install firmware
1. Select a switch in the topology display and double-click to open the Faceplate display.
Open the Switch menu and select Load Firmware.
2. In the Firmware Upload window, click Select to browse and select the firmware file to be
uploaded.
3. Click Start to begin the firmware load process. A warning message is displayed.
4. Click OK or Cancel.
■
If conditions exist for performing a non-disruptive firmware activation (outlined in the
previous note), Switch Manager performs a hot reset, to activate the firmware without
disrupting data traffic. During a non-disruptive activation, all Logged-in LEDs are
extinguished for several seconds.
■
If conditions do not exist for a non-disruptive activation, Switch Manager prompts for
a hard reset, and then performs a disruptive activation.
Using the CLI to install firmware
1. Enter the following command to download the firmware from a remote host to the switch,
install the firmware, and reset the switch to activate the firmware:
(admin) #> firmware install
Warning: Installing new firware requires a switch reset. Continuing with
this action will terminate all management sessions, including any Telnet
sessions. When the firmware activation is complete, you may log in to the

Troubleshooting
POST diagnostics
The switch performs a series of tests as part of its power-up procedure. The POST diagnostic
program performs checksum tests on the boot firmware in PROM and the switch firmware in
flash memory, internal data loopback tests on all ports, and access and integrity tests on the
ASIC.
During the POST, the switch logs any errors encountered. Some POST errors are critical,
others are not. The switch uses the Heartbeat LED and the Logged-In LED to indicate switch
and port status. A critical error disables the switch so that it does not operate. A non-critical
error allows the switch to operate, but disables the ports that have errors. Whether the problem
is critical or not, contact your HP Authorized Maintenance Provider.
If there are no errors, the Heartbeat LED blinks at a steady rate of once per second. If a critical
error occurs, the Heartbeat LED shows an error blink pattern and the System Fault LED will
illuminate. If there are non-critical errors, the switch disables the failed ports and flashes the
associated Logged-In LEDs.
Heartbeat LED blink patterns
The Heartbeat LED indicates the operational status of the switch. When the POST completes
with no errors, the Heartbeat LED blinks at a steady rate of once per second. When the switch
is in maintenance mode, the Heartbeat LED illuminates continuously. See “Maintenance mode
options” on page 47 for more information about maintenance mode. All other blink patterns
indicate critical errors.
The Heartbeat LED shows an error blink pattern for the following conditions:

Troubleshooting
Over temperature blink pattern
An over temperature blink pattern is 5 blinks followed by a two second pause. The 5-blink
error pattern indicates that the air temperature inside the switch has exceeded the failure
temperature threshold (70° C) and all ports are down.
If the Heartbeat LED shows the over temperature blink pattern:
1. Inspect the chassis fans and vents. Are the intake and exhaust vents clear? Are the fans
operating and producing air flow?
— Yes - Continue.
— No - Remove any debris from fan intake and exhaust if necessary. If the condition
remains, continue.
2. Consider the ambient air temperature near the switch and clearance around the switch.
Make necessary corrections. If the condition remains, unplug the switch from the AC
power source, and contact your HP Authorized Maintenance Provider.
3. Open a command line window and log on to the switch. Enter the Shutdown command,
then power down the switch. Contact your HP Authorized Maintenance Provider.
Logged-In LED indications

HP StorageWorks 2/8q Fibre Channel Switch Installation Guide
Troubleshooting
Port Error blinking pattern
The switch can monitor a set of port errors and generates alarms based on user-defined sample
windows and thresholds. Port errors include the following:
■
CRC errors
■
Decode errors
■
Login / Logout errors
■
Loss-of-signal errors
Port threshold alarm monitoring is disabled by default. Refer to the HP StorageWorks 2/8q
Fibre Channel Switch Management User Guide for information about managing port
threshold alarms.
If the count for any of these errors exceeds the rising trigger for three consecutive sample
windows, the switch generates an alarm and disables the affected port, changing its
operational state to “down.”
Port errors can be caused by the following:
■

Electrostatic Discharge
B
To prevent damage to the system, be aware of the precautions you need to follow when setting
up the system or handling parts. A discharge of static electricity from a finger or other
conductor may damage system boards or other static-sensitive devices. This type of damage
may reduce the life expectancy of the device.
Prevention methods
■
Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers.
■
Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free
workstations.
■
Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
■
Avoid touching pins, leads, or circuitry.
■
Always make sure you are properly grounded when touching a static-sensitive component
or assembly.
Grounding methods
There are several methods for grounding. Use one or more of the following methods when
handling or installing electrostatic-sensitive parts:
■
Use a wrist strap connected by a ground cord to a grounded workstation or computer
chassis. Wrist straps are flexible straps with a minimum of 1 megohm ± 10 percent
resistance in the ground cords. To provide proper ground, wear the strap snug against the
skin.
■
Use heel straps, toe straps, or boot straps at standing workstations. Wear the straps on both
feet when standing on conductive floors or dissipating floor mats.
■
Use conductive field service tools.
■
Use a portable field service kit with a folding static-dissipating work mat.
If you do not have any of the equipment suggested for proper grounding, either have an HP
Authorized Reseller install the part or discharge any potential static by touching a piece of
sheet metal immediately before touching the component or the device.
Note: For more information on static electricity, or assistance with product installation, contact your
HP Authorized Reseller.
