supply requires a 15-A circuit.
The plug-socket combination must be accessible at all times, because it serves as the main
disconnecting device.
Statement 1019
Caution
Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable with systems
such as the Cisco MDE, which can have substantial current draw fluctuations from fluctuating data
traffic patterns.
Caution
To prevent loss of input power, ensure that the total maximum loads on the circuits supplying power to
the appliance are within the current ratings for the wiring and breakers.
Rack Requirements
This section provides the requirements for the standard open racks, assuming an external ambient air
temperature range of 32 to 95F (0 to 35C).
The rack must be of the following type:
•
Standard 19-inch (48.3-cm) wide, four-post EIA rack, with mounting posts that conform to English
universal hole spacing per section 1 of ANSI/EIA-310-D-1992.
•
The rack post holes can be square or round when you use the supplied slide rails.
•
The minimum vertical rack space per appliance must be two rack units (RUs), equal to 3.50 inches
(8.89 cm).
Required Equipment
The slide rails supplied by Cisco Systems do not require any tools for installation, but you might want
to use a tape measure and level to help level the slide rails during installation.
The slide rails include screws that you can optionally use to apply additional stability. These screws are
not required.

Attach the Cables to the Appliance
This section describes how to attach cables to your appliance.
Step 1
Attach a power cord to each power supply in your appliance, and then attach the power cord to a
grounded AC power outlet. See the “Power Specifications” section on page A-2 for power specifications.
Power is supplied to the service processor in standby power mode. You can verify power status by
looking at the Power Status LED on the front panel (see Figure 1-5):
•
Off—The appliance is not receiving power. Check the power cord connections and the power source
of the facility.
•
Amber—The appliance is in standby power mode. Power is supplied only to the service processor
and some motherboard functions.
•
Solid green—The appliance is in main power mode. Power is supplied to all appliance components.
Step 2
Connect to your network by using the 10/100 Ethernet management port (see Figure 1-3).
Step 3
Connect to appliance management console using one of the following methods:
•
The front panel KVM console connector using the supplied KVM cable. See the “KVM Cable”
section on page B-1 for details.
•
The rear panel VGA and USB ports.
Note
•
You cannot use the front panel console connector VGA and the rear panel VGA at the same time.
If you are connected to one VGA connector and you then connect a video device to the other
connector, the first VGA connector is disabled. You can then reactivate the first VGA connector
only by rebooting the appliance.
The rear panel serial connector (DB9) using a terminal emulation program (9600 baud, 8N1). If you
later enable the Serial-over-LAN feature in CIMC, you will no longer be able to access the console
through this connector.
Configure CIMC Network Settings and Password
Caution
DO NOT change the NIC mode or NIC redundancy settings. Changing these settings may cause severe

Step 5
Continue with the “Initially Setting up the Server” section on page 2-19.
Initially Setting up the Server
This section includes the following topics:
•
Connecting and Powering On the Server (Standalone Mode), page 2-19
•
Managing NIC Modes and NIC Redundancy Settings, page 2-21
Connecting and Powering On the Server (Standalone Mode)
This section describes how to power on the server, assign an IP address, and connect to server
management when using the server in standalone mode.
Note
The server is shipped with a default NIC mode called Shared LOM, default NIC redundancy is
active-active, and DHCP is enabled. Shared LOM mode enables the two 1-Gb Ethernet ports to access
the Cisco Integrated Management Interface (CIMC). If you want to use the 1-Gb Ethernet dedicated
management port, or a port on a Cisco UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card (VIC) to access the CIMC, you
must first connect to the server and change the NIC mode as described in Step 3 of the following
procedure. In that step, you can also change the NIC redundancy and set static IP settings.
To initially set up the server:
Step 1
Attach a supplied power cord to each power supply in your server, and then attach the power cord to a
grounded AC power outlet. See the Power Specifications, page A-3 for power specifications.
Wait for approximately two minutes to let the server boot in standby power during the first bootup.
You can verify power status by looking at the Power Status LED (see Figure 1-1 on page 1-2):
•
Off—There is no AC power present in the server.
•
Amber—The server is in standby power mode. Power is supplied only to the CIMC and some
motherboard functions.
•
Green—The server is in main power mode. Power is supplied to all server components.
Note
Step 2
During bootup, the server beeps once for each USB device that is attached to the server. Even if
there are no external USB devices attached, there is a short beep for each virtual USB device
such as a virtual floppy drive, CD/DVD drive, keyboard, or mouse. A beep is also emitted if a
USB device is hot-plugged or hot-unplugged during BIOS power-on self test (POST), or while
you are accessing the BIOS Setup utility or the EFI shell.
Connect a USB keyboard and VGA monitor by using the supplied KVM cable connected to the KVM
connector on the front panel (see Figure 1-1 on page 1-2).
Cisco MDE 3125 Series Hardware Installation Guide
OL-31959-01

Chapter
Note
Step 3
Alternatively, you can use the VGA and USB ports on the rear panel. However, you cannot use
the front panel VGA and the rear panel VGA at the same time. If you are connected to one VGA
connector and you then connect a video device to the other connector, the first VGA connector
is disabled.
Set NIC mode, NIC redundancy, and choose whether to enable DHCP or set static network settings:
a.
Press the Power button to boot the server. Watch for the prompt to press F8.
b.
During bootup, press F8 when prompted to open the BIOS CIMC Configuration Utility.
c.
Set the NIC mode to your choice for which ports to use to access the CIMC for server management
(see Figure 1-3 on page 1-3 for port identification):
– Dedicated—The 1-Gb Ethernet management port is used to access the CIMC. You must select
NIC redundancy None and select IP settings.
– Shared LOM (default)—The two 1-Gb Ethernet ports are used to access the CIMC. This is the
factory default setting, along with Active-active NIC redundancy and DHCP enabled.
– Cisco Card—The ports on an installed Cisco UCS P81E VIC are used to access the CIMC. You
must select a NIC redundancy and IP setting.
Note
d.
The Cisco Card NIC mode is currently supported only with a Cisco UCS P81E VIC
(N2XX-ACPCI01) that is installed in PCIe slot 1. See also Special Considerations for Cisco
UCS P81E Virtual Interface Card (N2XX-ACPCI01), page 3-33.
Use this utility to change the NIC redundancy to your preference. This server has three possible NIC
redundancy settings:
– None—The Ethernet ports operate independently and do not fail over if there is a problem.
– Active-standby—If an active Ethernet port fails, traffic fails over to a standby port.
– Active-active—All Ethernet ports are utilized simultaneously.
e.
Choose whether to enable DHCP for dynamic network settings, or to enter static network settings.

Note
Before you enable DHCP, your DHCP server must be preconfigured with the range of MAC
addresses for this server. The MAC address is printed on a label on the rear of the server. This
server has a range of six MAC addresses assigned to the CIMC. The MAC address printed on
the label is the beginning of the range of six contiguous MAC addresses.
(Optional) Use this utility to make VLAN settings, and to set a default CIMC user password.
Changes to the settings take effect after approximately 45 seconds. Refresh with F5 and wait
until the new settings appear before you reboot the server in the next step.
Press F10 to save your settings and reboot the server.
If you chose to enable DHCP, the dynamically assigned IP and MAC addresses are displayed on
the console screen during bootup.
Step 4
Connect to the CIMC for server management. Connect Ethernet cables from your LAN to the server,
using the ports that you selected by your NIC Mode setting in Step 3. The Active-active and
Active-passive NIC redundancy settings require you to connect to two ports.
Step 5
Use a browser and the IP address of the CIMC to connect to the CIMC Setup Utility. The IP address is
based upon the settings that you made in Step 3 (either a static address or the address assigned by your
DHCP server).
Note
The default user name for the server is admin. The default password is password.
To manage the server, see the Cisco UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Server Configuration Guide or the Cisco
UCS C-Series Rack-Mount Server CLI Configuration Guide for instructions on using those interfaces.

RAID
RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a data storage virtualization technology that combines
multiple disk drive components into a logical unit for the purposes of data redundancy and performance
improvement.
Data is distributed across the drives in one of several ways, referred to as RAID levels, depending on the
specific level of redundancy and performance required. The different schemes or architectures are named
by the word RAID followed by a number (e.g. RAID 0, RAID 1). Each scheme provides a different
balance between the key goals: reliability and availability, performance and capacity. RAID levels
greater than RAID 0 provide protection against unrecoverable (sector) read errors, as well as whole disk
failure.
RAID 0
RAID 0 comprises striping (but no parity or mirroring). This level provides no data redundancy nor fault
tolerance, but improves performance through parallelism of read and write operations across multiple
drives. RAID 0 has no error detection mechanism, so the failure of one disk causes the loss of all data
on the array.
RAID 1
RAID 1 comprises mirroring (without parity or striping). Data are written identically to two (or more)
drives, thereby producing a "mirrored set". The read request is serviced by any of the drives containing
the requested data. This can improve performance if data is read from the disk with the least seek latency
and rotational latency. Conversely, write performance can be degraded because all drives must be
updated; thus the write performance is determined by the slowest drive. The array continues to operate
as long as at least one drive is functioning.
Cisco MDE 3125 Series Hardware Installation Guide
OL-31959-01
23
Chapter
RAID 5
A RAID 5 comprises block-level striping with distributed parity. Unlike in RAID 0 and RAID 1, parity
information is distributed among the drives. It requires that all drives but one be present to operate. Upon
failure of a single drive, subsequent reads can be calculated from the distributed parity such that no data
is lost. RAID 5 requires at least three disks.
Note
MDE Hardware [MDE-1125 and MDE-3125] only support Hardware RAID configuration. For

Chapter
Shutting Down and Powering Off the Appliance
Tip
If you have ordered an appliance with power supply redundancy (at least two power supplies), you do
not have to power off the appliance to replace a power supply because they are hot-pluggable. The
appliance hard drives are also hot-pluggable.
The appliance can run in two power modes:
•
Main power mode—Power is supplied to all appliance components and any operating system on
your hard drives can run.
•
Standby power mode—Power is supplied only to the service processor and the cooling fans. It is
safe to power off the appliance from this mode.
You can invoke a graceful shutdown or an emergency shutdown (hard shutdown) by using either of the
following methods:
•
Remote shut down using the CIMC management interface. See the Cisco Media Delivery Engine
Administration Guide for information about remotely powering down the appliance.
•
Pressing the Power button on the appliance front panel.
To use the Power button to shut down your system:
Step 1
Check the color of the Power Status LED (see the “Front Panel LEDs” section on page 1-5).
•
Green LED
•
Amber LED
Green LED
A green LED indicates that the appliance is in main power mode and must be shut down before it can be
safely powered off. Go to Step 2.
Step 2
Caution
Invoke either a graceful shutdown or a hard shutdown:
To avoid data loss or damage to your operating system, you should always invoke a graceful shutdown.
•
Graceful shutdown—Press and release the Power button. The operating system will perform a
graceful shutdown and the appliance goes to standby mode, which is indicated by an amber Power
Status LED.
•
Hard shutdown—Press and hold the Power button for 4 seconds to force the main power off and
immediately enter standby mode.
Amber LED
An amber LED indicates that the appliance is already in standby mode and can be safely powered off.
Disconnect the power cords from the power supplies in your appliance to completely power off the
appliance.

Warning
This unit might have more than one power cord. To reduce the risk of electric shock, disconnect the
two power supply cords before servicing the unit. Statement 14
Caution
Tip
When handling appliance components, wear an ESD strap to avoid damage.
You can press the Locator button on the front panel to turn on a flashing Locator LED on the appliance
front and rear panels. This button allows you to locate the specific appliance that you are servicing when
you go to the rear of the rack. See the “Status LEDs” section on page 1-5 for locations of the LEDs.
Before You Begin
The following situations indicated that a Cisco ECDS disk needs to be replaced:
•
The disk has failed on the UCS.
•
SMART detection has indicated that disk failure is imminent but no LED indications are present, so
it is unclear which disk should be replaced.
In either case, the disk must be marked as “bad” prior to removing it. When a new disk is installed, you
must then mark it as “good” and reboot the device for the system to recognize the new disk.
Troubleshooting Tip
If your system reports a newly installed disk as “Not Used,” make sure you have marked the new disk
“good” with the CLI after installing it.
See the following sections to manage your system according to the number of slots/disks you are using:
•
Required Equipment, page 3-3

When populating drives, add drives to the lowest-numbered bays first.
•
Keep an empty drive blanking tray in any unused bays to ensure proper air flow.
•
You can mix hard drives and SSDs in the same server (the LFF version of the server does not support
SSDs). However, You cannot configure a logical volume (virtual drive) that contains a mix of hard
drives and SSDs. That is, when you create a logical volume, it must contain all hard drives or all
SSDs.

extranet
An extranet is a private network that uses Internet protocols and network connectivity. An extranet can
be viewed as part of a company's intranet that is extended to users outside the company, usually via the
Internet. It has also been described as a “state of mind” in which the Internet is perceived as a way to
do business with a selected set of other companies (business-to-business, B2B), in isolation from all
other Internet users. In contrast, business-to-consumer (B2C) models involve known servers of one or
more companies, communicating with previously unknown consumer users.
An extranet can be understood as an intranet mapped onto the public Internet or some other
transmission system not accessible to the general public, but managed by more than one company's
administrator(s). For example, military networks of different security levels may map onto a common
military radio transmission system that never connects to the Internet. Any private network mapped
onto a public one is a virtual private network (VPN), often using special security protocols.

virtual machine
A virtual machine (VM) is a software implementation of a machine (a computer, for example) that
executes programs like a physical machine does. A system virtual machine provides a complete system
platform which supports the execution of a complete operating system (OS).
VMware
VMware software provides a completely virtualized set of hardware to the guest operating system.
VMware software virtualizes the hardware for a video adapter, a network adapter, and hard disk
adapters. The host provides pass-through drivers for guest USB, serial, and parallel devices. In this way,
VMware virtual machines become highly portable between computers, because every host looks nearly
identical to the guest. In practice, a system administrator can pause operations on a virtual machine
guest, move or copy that guest to another physical computer, and there resume execution exactly at the
point of suspension. Alternately, for enterprise servers, a feature called VMotion allows the migration
of operational guest virtual machines between similar but separate hardware hosts sharing the same
storage. Each of these transitions is completely transparent to any users on the virtual machine at the
time it is being migrated.
