To disable a switch:
1. If you have not already done so, connect to the switch and log in as admin as described in
Connect to the Command Line Interface.
2. Issue the switchDisable command.
All FC ports on the switch are taken offline. If the switch was part of a fabric, the fabric
reconfigures.
To enable a switch:
1. If you have not already done so, connect to the switch and log in as admin as described in
Connect to the Command Line Interface (page 10).
2. Issue the switchEnable command.
All FC ports that pass POST are enabled. If the switch has ISLs to a fabric, it joins the fabric.
Disabling and enabling a port
To enable a port:
1. Connect to the switch and log in as admin as described in Connect to the Command Line
Interface (page 10).
2. Issue the portenable portnumber command, where portnumber is the number of the
port you want to enable.
To disable a port:
1. If you have not already done so, connect to the switch and log in as admin as described in
Connect to the Command Line Interface (page 10).
2. Issue portdisable portnumber command, where portnumber is the number of the
port you want to disable.
Using DPOD
DPOD functionality does not require a predefined assignment of ports. Port assignment is
determined by the total number of ports in use as well as the number of purchased ports.
The DPOD feature simplifies port management by:
•
Automatically detecting HBA connected server ports or cabled ports
•
Automatically enabling ports
•
Automatically assigning port licenses
To initiate DPOD, use the licensePort command, as described in Page 13.
IMPORTANT: For the Brocade 16Gb FC Switch Module, DPOD works only if the server blade
is installed with an HBA present. A server blade that does not have a functioning HBA is not
treated as an active link for the purpose of initial POD port assignment.
12
Login and Configuration
DPOD commands
Use the licensePort command to manage dynamic POD assignments with the following
options:
•
licensePort –reserve portnum reserves a future license assignment for a specific
port, even if the port is currently offline.
•
licensePort –release portnum removes a license from a port.
•
portCfgPersistentDisable blocks a specific port from future assignments.
•
licensePort -show displays an overview of the POD license status and port assignments.
NOTE: The DPOD feature does not consider disabled ports as candidates for license
assignments. You can persistently disable an otherwise enabled port to cause it not to come
online and preserve a license assignment for future use.
Backing up the configuration
To back up the switch configuration to an FTP server, enter configupload and follow the
prompts. The configupload command copies the switch configuration to the server, making
it available for downloading to a replacement switch, if necessary.
Maintaining the Brocade 16Gb FC Switch Module
The Brocade 16Gb FC Switch Module does not require any regular physical maintenance.
It is critical, however, that environmental conditions, described in Environmental
requirements (page 15), are met to help prevent switch failure due to heat stress or improper air
flow.

C Electrostatic Discharge and grounding recommendations
This appendix provides the following information:
Electrostatic discharge recommendations
CAUTION: To prevent damaging 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
can reduce the life expectancy of the device.
To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions:
•
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 suggested equipment for proper grounding, have an Hewlett Packard Enterprise
authorized reseller install the part.
NOTE: For more information on static electricity, or for assistance with product installation,
contact your Hewlett Packard Enterprise authorized reseller.
