Product Overview

Product features

Key product features include the following:

Up to 256 16-Gbps external ports in a single chassis , enabling high density SAN configurations with reduced footprint.

Support for 2, 4, 8, and 16-Gbps autosensing Fibre Channel ports. Trunking technology groups up to eight ports to create high performance 128-Gbps ISL trunks between switches.

10-Gbps FC-type SFPs in 32/48-port 16-Gbps port blades, and 10-GbE SFPs in the FX8-24 application blades. The two types of SFPs are not interchangeable.

The 10-Gbps ports can be manually configured on only the first eight ports of the 32- and 48-port 16-Gbps port blades.

Support for many of the application, port blade, and control processor (CP) blades supported in the Brocade DCX family of backbones (with the exception of the Core Switch Blade), thereby providing flexible system configurations and fewer types of new blades.

Beginning with Fabric OS v7.0.1, up to nine chassis can be connected with the use of 4x16-Gbps quad SFP (QSFP) inter-chassis links (ICLs). Fabric OS v7.0.0 permits up to six chassis to be linked.

Support for high-performance port blades running at 2, 4, 8, 10, or 16-Gbps, enabling flexible system configuration.

Redundant and hot-swappable control processor and core switch blades, power supplies, blower assemblies, and

WWN cards that enable a high availability platform and enable nondisruptive software upgrades for mission-critical

SAN applications.

Universal ports that self-configure as E_Ports, F_Ports, EX_Ports and M_Ports (mirror ports). 10-Gbps ports are

E_Ports only.

Diagnostic port (D_Port) functionality.

In-flight data cryptographic (encryption/decryption) and data compression capabilities through the 16-Gbps port blades when configured as ISLs.

Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) functionality through the FX8-24 blade.

Hardware components

The device has a modular and scalable mechanical construction that allows a wide range of flexibility in installation, fabric design, and maintenance. The chassis can be mounted with the cables facing the front of the equipment rack or to the rear, and consists of the following:

Up to four hot-swappable port blade assemblies that can be configured in a single chassis, delivering up to 256 16-

Gbps Fibre Channel ports .

Two slots for control processor blades (CP8):

A single active CP8 blade can control all the ports in the chassis.

The standby CP8 blade assumes control of the chassis if the active CP fails.

The CP blade contains the control plane for the device and hosts the Fabric OS that manages all hardware within the device.

The CP blade provides the following external connections for device configuration, firmware downloads, service, management, and monitoring functions.

USB port for firmware download and supportsave

data.

Serial console RJ45 port.

An 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 Ethernet port for device management and configuration. This is an auto-sensing MDI port.

An 10/100/1000Base-T RJ45 Ethernet port for service. This is an auto-sensing MDI port.

NOTE

Device control processors and management modules contain batteries for RTC/NVRAM backup. Do not attempt to replace these batteries. Dispose of hardware components containing these batteries as required by local ordinances and regulations.

Two slots for core switch blades (CR16-4):

CR16-4 blade interconnects all port blades.

Inter-chassis link (ICL) connectors to connect to as many as nine neighboring chassis using Fabric OS v7.0.1 or later. Only six chassis can be connected using Fabric OS v7.0.0.

Both CR16-4 blades are active.

Modular, hot-swappable port blades:

32-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-32E)

48-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-48E)

64-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-64)

32-port, 16-Gbps blades (FC16-32)

48-port, 16-Gbps blades (FC16-48)

64-port, 16-Gbps blades (FC16-64)

Modular, hot-swappable application blades:

FX8-24: 24-port (12 FC, 10 1-GbE, and 2 10-GbE) FCIP extension blade enabling long distance communication over existing IP infrastructure.

Modular, hot-swappable encryption blades:

FS8-18: 16-port, up to 4 blades per chassis, supporting in-flight data cryptographic (encryption/decryption) and data-compression capabilities.

Modular, hot-swappable field-replaceable units (FRUs):

Two blower assemblies.

Two power supplies (100-240 VAC autosensing).

At 110 VAC (nominal): A minimum of two power supplies is required, regardless of the number of port or application blades. This configuration does not support high availability.

220 VAC (nominal) is recommended for efficiency. A second power supply is required to support high availability.

Redundant AC primary power connections ensure high availability. Each power supply has its own connector, so the number of primary power connections is two for optimum efficiency and redundancy.

Two WWN cards.

Blades use small form-factor pluggable (SFP+, mSFP, and QSFP) optical transceivers.

The 8-Gbps SFP+s and mSFPs auto-negotiate at 2, 4, and 8 Gbps.

The 10-Gbps speed must be manually set and requires special 10-Gbps FC SFP+ transceivers.

The 16-Gbps SFP+ transceivers support speeds of 2, 4, 8, 10, and 16 Gbps.

The 16-Gbps QSFPs supported on FC16-64 port blade and core blades auto-negotiate at 4, 8, and 16 Gbps.

The 16-Gbps fixed-speed QSFPs on the core blades run at 64-Gbps (four fixed 16-Gbps clustered in a single quad connector and cable).

Blades are serviced from the port side of the chassis. Blowers, power supplies, and power cables are serviced from the nonport side.

World Wide Name (WWN) cards on the nonport side, with WWN status LEDs located under the bezel.

Two vertical cable management finger assemblies and a redesigned chassis door for improved cable management.

For DCX-4S Directors, air flows into the device through its nonport side and out through the vent on the side of the chassis or air flows into the side vent and out the nonport side. This kit is designed to route the exhaust airflow fully to the port side of the chassis while mounted in a four-post rack.

For DCX 8510-4 Directors, air flows into the device through its nonport side and out through the vent on the side of the chassis or air flows into the side vent and out the nonport side. This kit is designed to route the exhaust airflow fully to the port side of the chassis while mounted in a four-post rack.

For X6-4 Directors, if nonport-side exhaust (NPE) fan and power supply assemblies are installed, air flows through the side vent and exhausts to the nonport side of the chassis. When nonport-side intake (NPI) fan and power supply assemblies are installed, air flows from the nonport-side and exhausts through the side vent. This kit is designed to divert this airflow to or from the port side of the chassis. Therefore, if NPE fan and power supply assemblies are installed, air flows into port-side air vents and exhausts to the nonport side. If NPI fan and power supply assemblies are installed, air flows into nonport-side air vents and exhausts through to the port-side.

Observe the following when mounting this device:

Installing this rack mount kit with an 8U chassis requires 9U of rack space.

Cable Management

Requirements and precautions

The cable management finger assemblies are attached to the chassis on either side of the port side of the chassis and allow for simple cable management. The cable management finger assemblies can be installed without service disruption.

Route the cables across in front of the blades to keep LEDs visible. Leave at least one meter of slack for each fiber-optic cable to provide room to remove and replace blades.

NOTE

The minimum radius to which a 50 micron cable can be bent under full tensile load is 5.1 cm (2 in.). For a cable under no tensile load, that minimum is 3.0 cm (1.2 in.).

CAUTION

Before plugging a cable into any port, be sure to discharge the voltage stored on the cable by touching the electrical contacts to ground surface.

Cables can be organized and managed in a variety of ways, for example, using cable channels on the sides of the cabinet or patch panels to minimize cable management. Following is a list of recommendations:

NOTE

You should not use tie wraps with optical cables because they are easily overtightened and can damage the optic fibers.

Plan for rack space required for cable management before installing the switch.

Leave at least 1 m (3.28 ft) of slack for each port cable. This provides room to remove and replace the switch, allows for inadvertent movement of the rack, and helps prevent the cables from being bent to less than the minimum bend radius.

If you are using Brocade ISL Trunking, consider grouping cables by trunking groups. The cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements, as described in the

Fabric OS Administrator’s Guide

.

For easier maintenance, label the fiber-optic cables and record the devices to which they are connected.

Keep LEDs visible by routing port cables and other cables away from the LEDs.

Use Velcro

®

type straps to secure and organize fiber-optic cables.

NOTE

Do not route the cables in front of the air exhaust vent, which is located at the top of the port side of the chassis.

If you are using the Airflow Diversion and Port Side Exhaust Kit with your Brocade DCX 8510-4, there is also an exhaust vent at the bottom of the port side of the chassis. Use the cable management finger assemblies to keep the cables away from this exhaust vent as well.

Cable types supported on the FC16-64 port blade

The FC16-64 port blade supports simplified cable management using QSFP cables. Each QSFP cable has four links internally that run at 16-Gbps speed and the cables come in specific predetermined fixed lengths.

The FC16-64 port blade supports the following types of cables:

QSFP to QSFP standard cables

QSFP-SFP/LC Break-out/Split-out cables

Figure 30: QSFP-SFP/LC Break-out/Split-out cables

1. QSFP MTP connector

2. SFP+ LC connectors

With the support for breakout cables, each port can be in a different mode. Inside the single physical QSFP port, individual ports can be configured as an E_Port, F_Port or EX_Port. Also, each internal port inside a single physical QSFP can be part of different Logical Switches.

With the support for breakout cables, trunking can be enabled on ports in a QSFP port group, with ports connected through breakout cables at the other end.

Installing inter-chassis links (ICLs)

Follow these guidelines when installing ICLs using fiber optic cables and transceivers. Refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS

Administration Guide

for the configuration procedure and requirements. Refer to "Removing and replacing a QSFP and cable" in this hardware installation guide to install cables and transceivers.

The QSFP ports on the core switch blades can be used only with an inter-chassis link (ICL) license. After the addition or removal of a license, the license enforcement is performed on the ports only when the portdisable

and portenable

commands are issued on the ports. An ICL license must be installed on all Brocade Backbones forming the ICL connection. Up to nine neighboring Brocade DCX 8510 series chassis can be connected with the MTP cables.

An off-the-shelf MTP cable up to 100 meters can be used as an ICL cable when using the standard SWL optics. The

Brocade 2 km QSFP with LWL optics has an integrated 3 meter single-mode pigtail with a male MTP connector for connectivity to a patch panel or female terminated MTP patch cable to achieve up to 2 km distances. Refer to

Using

Brocade 2 km LWL QSFPs

for more information.

Brocade supports fully populating a switch with ICL connections using a mixture of 50 and 100 meter SWL optics and 2 km LWL optics.

Following are examples of maximum ICL port connections in a DCX 8510 when using 2 km LWL QSFPs. Note that limits are based on the number of buffers. If using ICLs for shorter distances, more ICL ports can be connected. There are no limitations on number of ICL ports if all ICL distances are a few hundred meters.

Up to 10 ICL ports can be used for 2 km distances when 16 buffer credits are configured per virtual channel.

Up to 16 ICL ports can be used for 1,375 meter distances when 11 buffer credits are configured per virtual channel.

The QSFP connectors on the core blades are labeled by trunk group (trunking is optional) for ease of installation.

Possible ICL configurations

The following figures show acceptable cabling configurations for the ICL feature. The recommended topology is the parallel type where there are four QSFP cables connected between any pair of Brocade DCX 8510 series chassis. The full-mesh configuration is also supported. Each of two cores in one chassis should be interconnected with each of two cores in the second chassis. This provides for inter-chassis link (ICL) trunking between chassis, ensuring redundancy.

Parallel connections between core blades are recommended.

Using Brocade 2 km LWL QSFPs

Up to 10 ICL ports using the 2km ICL QSFP are supported in a DCX 8510 backbone switch at the two km distance, which requires configuring 16 buffer credit per virtual channel. The 10 ICL limit is based on the number of buffers. If the 2km

QSFPs are used at shorter distances, then more ICLs can be used.

The Brocade 2 km LWL QSFP, is a hot-swappable, low-voltage (3.3 V) digital diagnostic optical transceiver that supports high-speed serial links over parallel single-mode optical fibers at signaling rates up to 4×14.025 Gbps. The QSFP is integrated with a 3-meter ribbon fiber cable with a male MTP 1 x 12 connector. The QSFP supports 2 km link length on parallel single-mode fiber.

Initial Configuration

Items required

The following items are required for initial setup and verification of the device:

The device, mounted and installed with the required blades, FRUs, transceivers, and cables and is connected to a power source.

A workstation computer with an installed terminal emulator application, such as HyperTerminal for Windows.

Unused IP addresses with corresponding subnet mask and gateway addresses for the device and for both management modules (total of three addresses).

A serial cable (provided) with an RJ-45 connector.

An RJ-45 to DB-9 adapter.

Three Ethernet cables (including one spare)

Access to an FTP server or USB device for backing up (uploading) or downloading the device configuration or collecting supportsave

output data (optional).

A Brocade USB drive for collecting supportsave

output data (optional)

Providing power to the device

For this procedure, refer to the power supply specifications section in the

Brocade DCX 8510 Backbone Technical

Specification

for power supply requirements of your chassis.

Complete the following steps to provide power to the chassis.

DANGER

Make sure that the power source circuits are properly grounded, and then use the power cord supplied with the device to connect it to the power source.

1. Connect the two AC power cords to the two power supplies.

2. Connect the power cords to a power source with voltage of 200 to 240 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz or optionally to a power source with voltage of 110 to 120 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz. If using any application blades in the chassis, the 200 to 240 VAC option is necessary to achieve power supply redundancy.

NOTE

Use of the high-voltage line (200 to 240 VAC) is highly recommended because of better power-conversion efficiency. For a fully-loaded Brocade DCX 8510-4, 200 to 240 VAC is required for high availability (ability to hot swap a failed power supply without affecting system operation).

3. Switch the AC power switches on the power supplies to I. The AC power switches light green when switched on and power is supplied.

The device performs a power-on self-test (POST) each time it is powered on. POST takes approximately 10 minutes and is complete when the indicator light activity displays the operational state. You can bypass POST by using the fastBoot

command. You can also disable POST for successive reboots on the device using the diagDisablePost command.

NOTE

Do not connect the switch to the network until the IP addresses are configured.

For information about LED patterns, refer to "Monitoring System Components" .

Configuring the device

The device must be configured before it is connected to the fabric, and all of the configuration commands must be entered through the active CP blade. The device configuration includes the following parameters:

IP address and subnet mask for the chassis

IP addresses, host names, subnet masks, and gateway addresses for both control processor (CP) blades

Switch name

Domain ID for the device (optional)

WWN for the device

The device WWN is initially set by the factory to match the license ID (which is based on the chassis serial number). The

WWN can be changed but the license ID cannot be modified.

The configuration information is mirrored to the standby CP blade, which allows the current configuration to remain available even if the active CP blade fails. The configuration information for the device is stored in the WWN cards and the flash memory of the CP blades. The configuration can be backed up to a workstation (uploaded) and then downloaded to the active CP blade if necessary.

NOTE

If the Brocade FS8-18 encryption blade is installed, refer to the

Fabric OS Encryption Administrator’s Guide

for the procedures to configure the encryption functions.

The following figure illustrates the flow of the basic configuration tasks.

5. Complete the remaining prompts or press

Ctrl+D

to accept the settings and exit.

6. Enter switchEnable

to re-enable the device.

Setting the date and time

The date and time settings are used for logging events. Switch operation does not depend on the date and time; a switch with an incorrect date and time value still functions properly. However, because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, they should be set correctly.

Setting the date

To set the date, follow these steps.

1. If necessary, log on to the device by Telnet, using the admin account.

The default password is password.

2. Enter the date

command, using the following syntax: date "mmddHHMMyy"

Setting the time zone

You must perform the procedure on

all

chassis for which the time zone must be set. Because the value is written to nonvolatile memory, you only need to set the time zone once on each switch.

Use one of the two following procedures to set the time zone.

The following procedure describes how to set the current time zone using timezone_fmt mode to Central Standard time.

1. Log in to the switch using the default password, which is password.

2. Enter the tsTimeZone

command as follows: switch:admin> tstimezone [

--interactive

]/ [,

timezone_fmt

]

Use timezone_fmt

to set the time zone by Country/City or by time zone ID, such as PST.

The following example shows how to change the time zone to US/Central.

switch:admin> tstimezone

Time Zone : US/Pacific switch:admin> tstimezone US/Central switch:admin> tstimezone

Time Zone : US/Central

The following procedure describes how to set the current time zone using interactive mode to Pacific Standard

Time.

1. Enter the tsTimeZone

command as follows: switch:admin> tstimezone --interactive

You are prompted to select a general location.

Please identify a location so that time zone rules can be set correctly.

2. Enter the appropriate number or

Ctrl+D

to quit.

3. At the prompt, select a country location.

4. At the prompt, enter the appropriate number to specify the time zone region or

Ctrl+D

to quit.

Synchronizing local time

To synchronize the local time of the principal or primary switch with that of an external NTP server, follow these steps.

1. If necessary, log on to the switch by Telnet, using the admin account.

2. Enter the tsClockServer

command: switch:admin> tsclockserver

"

<ntp1;ntp2>"

In this syntax,

ntp1

is the IP address or DNS name of the first NTP server, which the switch must be able to access.

The variable

ntp2

is the second NTP server and is optional. The operand "<ntp1;ntp2>" is optional; by default, this value is LOCL, which uses the local clock of the principal or primary switch as the clock server.

The tsClockServer

command accepts multiple server addresses in IPv4, IPv6, or DNS name formats. When multiple

NTP server addresses are passed, tsClockServer

sets the first obtainable address as the active NTP server. The

53-1002177-19 Hardware Installation Guide Brocade DCX 8510-4 Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

NOTE

For current information on qualified transceivers supported by this device, refer to the Brocade Fibre Channel

Transceiver Platform Support Matrix and Brocade Transceiver Module Resources on www.brocade.com

NOTE

The device supports only Brocade-qualified transceivers. If you use an unqualified transceiver, the switchshow command output shows the port in a Mod_Inv state. Fabric OS also logs the issue in the system error log.

1. Add the optical transceivers and cables to the Fibre Channel ports.

The ports are color-coded to indicate which can be used in the same port group for trunking (trunking port groups can be up to 8 ports). The ports and cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. Refer to the

Brocade

Fabric OS Administration Guide

.

2. Position one of the optical transceivers so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks.

Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

3. Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the transceiver.

Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks.

Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the remaining ports.

5. Organize the cables. Refer to Managing cables .

6. Verify the device and port status using the switchShow

command.

7. Verify fabric connectivity using the fabricShow

command.

76

53-1002177-19 Hardware Installation Guide Brocade DCX 8510-4 Backbone Hardware Installation Guide transceivers should be installed in the blades before connecting the cables. As each QSFP contains four 16-Gbps ports, be aware that any problems with one port could affect all four ports in the quad if the QSFP must be replaced.

1. Position one of the QSFP transceivers so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated.

Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

When the transceiver is correctly seated, the status LED will flash amber several times and then turn solid amber.

2. Remove the protective cap from the special QSFP cable and insert it into the transceiver until it is firmly seated.

The cables are also keyed to fit into the transceivers correctly.

When the cable is correctly seated, the status LED will change from amber to green.

Repeat steps 1 and 2 for the remaining QSFP ports.

3. Organize the cables. Refer to information on managing cables in this installation guide.

4. Verify the device and connector and port status using the switchShow -qsfp

command.

NOTE

The following example is from a DCX chassis with four slots for port blades and a core blade installed in slot 3. Some details for a chassis with eight slots for ports blades will display differently, but the reported information for the QSFPs will be similar.

Managing cables

Cables can be organized and managed in a variety of ways, for example, using cable channels on the port sides of the cabinet or patch panels to minimize cable management.

With the horizontal orientation of the blades in the Brocade DCX 8510-4, a pair of vertical cable management finger assemblies are provided to keep the cables from hanging down in front of other blades.

Following is a list of recommendations:

Broadcom

53-1002177-19

78

53-1002177-19 Hardware Installation Guide Brocade DCX 8510-4 Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

Leave at least 1 m (3.28 ft) of slack for each port cable. This provides room to remove and replace the device, allows for inadvertent movement of the rack, and helps prevent the cables from being bent to less than the minimum bend radius.

The minimum bend radius should be no smaller than ten times the cable radius. The minimum radius to which a 50 micron cable can be bent under full tensile load is 5.1 cm (2 in.). For a cable under no tensile load, that minimum is 3.0

cm (1.2 in.).

If ISL Trunking is in use, group the cables by trunking group. The ports are color-coded to indicate which ports can be used in the same ISL Trunking group: eight ports marked with solid black ovals alternate with eight ports marked with oval outlines.

Generally, Velcro

®

type cable restraints are recommended to avoid creating sharp bends in the cables. Do not use tie wraps with optical cables because they are easily overtightened and can damage the optic fibers.

For easier maintenance, label the fiber-optic cables and record the devices to which they are connected.

Do not route cables in front of the air exhaust vents.

Keep LEDs visible by routing port cables and other cables away from the LEDs.

NOTE

Refer to "Cabling Best Practices" (available at http://www.brocade.com

) for cable management guidelines.

For the procedure to install the ICL cables, refer to "Inter-chassis link (QSFP) cable removal and replacement."

Verifying correct operation and backing up the configuration

NOTE

Before removing any cables from a blade, note the cable order (identify each cable by its physical port). It is a good practice to keep a table of cable to port mapping.

NOTE

If multiple blades are being replaced, replace one blade at a time.

This procedure is applicable for all the port and application blades supported on the device.

1. Remove the chassis door.

2. Check the power LED, status LED, and port status LED to identify any possible problems. A failed port or application blade can be identified by inspecting the LEDs on the front panel of each blade.

3. Establish a Telnet or console session.

Before replacing a blade, establish a Telnet or console connection to determine a failure and verify operation after replacement. Use the switchShow

command to view the status of the blades.

4. Check for adequate cable slack. Ensure there is plenty of cable slack to remove a blade without cable obstruction.

5. Ensure that the part number on the unit being replaced matches the replacement part number. The chassisShow command displays information about the blades, including part numbers (

xx-xxxxxxx-xx

), serial numbers, and additional status.

6. Ensure that traffic is not flowing through the blade (port status LED should be off) prior to disconnecting cables.

7. Ensure that traffic is not flowing through the blade.

8. Disconnect all cables and transceivers from the blade. For mSFP transceivers (FC8-64 only), it is recommended that you use the pull tab to remove the transceiver from the blade.

9. If removing an FX8-24 extension blade, perform the following steps: a) Delete all fciptunnel configurations via the portcfg fciptunnel slot / vePort

command.

b) Delete all IP Routes defined on the blade to be removed via the portcfg iproute

command.

c) Delete all IP interfaces (IPIFs) defined on the blade via the portcfg ipif slot/geX | xgeX

command.

d) If logical switches are used on the switch, move all FX8-24 ports back to the default logical switch.

NOTE

If you are removing the FX8-24 blade to install in a different slot, you must remove configuration using the preceding steps, then reconfigure the blade in the new slot. If you move the blade without performing these steps and the blade faults, you must move the blade to the original slot and remove configuration.

for recovery . The wwnrecover

tool may prompt you to reboot the control processors (CP) if the system is running with invalid IP addresses because the system was booted with a replacement card for WWN card 1.

System power-down procedure. Use this procedure when replacing both WWN cards. This procedure disrupts system operations. Observe the following when replacing both WWN cards:

No additional reboot is required following card replacement after powering the system down.

If Brocade support has determined that both WWN cards need replaced, you must power-down the chassis, and then replace both WWN cards as a matched pair.

Be aware that if replacing both WWN cards, the IP addresses on the new WWN cards will be in effect when the chassis powers up. If these IP addresses are different from the previous cards, then you will not be able to establish ssh or other sessions that use the previous IP addresses. You can change IP addresses on the new cards using the ipaddrset

command.

NOTE

If replacing the chassis, you do not need to remove WWN cards from chassis as they ship with replacement chassis.

Time and items required

If there is a need to replace one or both WWN cards, allow approximately 20 minutes. Refer to

Using wwnrecover 7.4

and

Verifying the need for replacement

before replacement.

The following items are needed to replace the WWN cards:

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

#2 Phillips screwdriver (required only for some versions of the WWN card)

If a serial console session is used: serial cable and a workstation computer with a terminal emulator application (such as HyperTerminal for Windows systems or TIP for Solaris systems)

Using the wwnrecover utility

The wwnrecover

utility permits a recovery of WWN card data in the event of corruption. Recovery is not possible if hardware issues prevent access to either WWN card or if the primary and backup copy of the license ID on either card is corrupted. This utility is not available in Fabric OS prior to v7.4.0.

Identical data must be maintained on each WWN card at all times so that if one card fails, the system can use the other card to provide valid system operation. To maintain data and ensure its integrity, the audits both WWN cards one hour after the first system boot-up, every 24 hours after boot-up, and any time a WWN card is inserted to compare the critical data.

If a data mismatch is detected during the audit, messages in the RASlog will provide a summary of all errors detected and prompt you through a data recovery process. The data recovery mechanism may vary depending on the error encountered and the data being compared. Problems such as a mismatch between license IDs cannot be fixed with wwnrecover

, and the output will direct you to call Brocade Technical Support. For other problems, running wwnrecover can pinpoint the problem and, in some cases, permit you to fix it. Mismatched data can be resolved, and corrupt data can sometimes be recovered.

The following table lists RASlog messages that can occur during the WWN card audit routine.

Preparing for WWN card replacement

If the WWN cards require replacement, complete the following steps. Follow electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions.

DANGER

For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 megaohm resistor.

1. Open a Telnet session to the chassis and log in to the active CP as admin. The default password is "password".

2. Verify that you are logged in to the active CP. Run the haShow

command to determine the active CP.

3. Run the supportSave

command on the active CP to capture all settings. These settings will be referenced to verify the settings have been correctly programmed after WWN replacement.

4. Contact Brocade Technical Support for replacement of WWN cards. Brocade Support will request the partner or OEM to send WWN cards from FRU inventory to the nearest Brocade Support office to be reprogrammed. Brocade Support will require the

Supportsave

data taken in the previous step so that the replacement cards can be reprogrammed prior to shipping to the partner or your site. If Brocade support has determined that both WWN cards need replaced, you must power-down the chassis, and then replace both WWN cards as a matched pair.

NOTE

Do not execute the frureplace

command. The command will no longer be functional beginning with the release of Fabric OS 7.0.0c, but users with earlier versions of the Fabric OS should also

not

run the command.

Hot-swap replacement

You may replace one WWN card with the system powered on using the following steps to avoid interruption of system operation.

Use this procedure if Brocade Customer Support has determined that a WWN card needs replaced and you have received replacement cards. These procedures require use of the wwnrecover

utility. For more information on this utility, refer to

Using wwnrecover

.

You can use this procedure to replace one WWN card at a time while power is on. Follow all steps for one card, and then repeat the same steps to replace the other card. To replace both WWN cards simultaneously, use procedures under

Power-down replacement

.

1. Remove the defective WWN card using procedures under

Removing the WWN card and WWN bezel (logo plate)

applicable to hot-swap replacement of WWN cards.

NOTE

Do not use steps in the WWN card and WWN bezel removal procedures to disable logical switches and power down the chassis.

Removing a WWN card will result in RASlog messages indicating that a WWN card cannot be detected. Since the system will be in a degraded state, install a WWN card as soon as possible.

2. Install the replacement WWN card into the empty slot.

When replacing cards, hold each card by the edges and insert the WWN cable onto the WWN module until the cables are fully seated.

3. Install the replacement WWN card into the empty slot.

When replacing cards, hold each card by the edges and slide the card into the chassis. Use the Phillips screwdriver and the screws to secure the WWN card to the chassis.

4. Verify that the WWN card is correctly connected by noting if the LEDs on the card reflects the status of the components.

5. Address any issues flagged by any RASlog EM-1220 and EM-1222 messages that display for the new card before proceeding.

NOTE

Issues relating to data recovery on new WWN cards must be resolved at this point before proceeding to avoid invalid WWN data, errors, and operating problems. If EM-1220 messages indicate that IP addresses on installed WWN cards do not match, follow instructions in the message to recover the IP address so that both cards use the same address.

6. Determine the active CP by entering the haShow

command.

7. On the active CP, run the wwnrecover

command and specify the WWN card that you replaced (WWN 2 or WWN 1) when prompted.

8. If wwnrecover

messages prompt for a system reboot, reboot both CPs to ensure the system is running with valid

WWN card data.

9. Enter the hafailover

command to force failover so that the standby CP becomes the active CP.

This command is necessary so that the correct IP address for the new card displays for the ipaddrshow

command.

For more information on these commands, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Command Reference

.

10. Verify the new card settings by running the following commands and comparing the output with the original supportsave

data:

• licenseidshow

• ipaddrshow

• switchname

• chassisname

• wwncardshow ipdata

• chassisshow

(look at the WWN and Chassis information at the bottom)

11. If replacing the second WWN card, repeat steps 1-11 for the other card.

12. Install the WWN bezel. Orient the bezel on the chassis. Insert and tighten the screws.

13. Pack faulty WWN cards in the packaging provided with the replacement cards, and return them to Brocade Support for failure analysis (FA).

Power-down replacement

Use these procedures when you can interrupt system operation and replace one or both WWN cards with the system powered down.

Use this procedure if Brocade Customer Support has determined that a WWN card needs replaced and you have received the replacement card. These procedures require use of the wwnrecover

utility.

NOTE

You can use this procedure if replacing one or both WWN cards, however you

must

use this procedure if replacing both WWN cards. If Brocade support has determined that both WWN cards need replaced, you must power-down the chassis, and then replace both WWN cards as a matched pair. Obtain replacement cards through your Brocade product support representative.

Time and items required

The replacement procedure for a transceiver takes less than five minutes.

Items required

The following items are needed to replace a transceiver:

Replacement mSFP, SFP, SFP+, or XFP

Optical transceiver extraction tool (for SFP, SFP+, and XFP transceivers)

Most Brocade switches and backbones come with a transceiver extraction tool and holster. The extraction tool is designed to remove transceivers from switches and blades where the space is limited.

Figure 64: Optical transceiver (SFP+) extraction tool

Removing an SFP+ transceiver

Complete the following steps to remove an SFP+ transceiver.

1. Remove any cables that are inserted into the transceiver. Use the extraction tool to open the cable latching mechanism.

2. Using the hooked end of the tool, pull the bail (wire handle) away from its pivot point and out, sliding the transceiver out of the switch or blade.

The 16 Gbps SFP+ transceivers have an attached pull tab like the mSFPs. Instead of using the tool, simply grasp the pull tab and pull straight out to remove the 16 Gbps SFP+ from the switch or blade. Refer to the illustration for the mSFP transceiver for the basic appearance of the 16 Gbps transceiver.

Figure 66: Replacing a 16 Gbps SFP+ optical transceiver

Replacing an SFP+ transceiver

Complete the following steps to replace an SFP+ transceiver.

1. Making sure that the bail (wire handle) is in the unlocked position, position the optical transceiver so that the key is oriented correctly to the port. Insert the transceiver into the port until it is firmly seated and the latching mechanism clicks; then close the bail.

The 16 Gbps SFP+ transceivers do not have bails. Use the tab on the 16 Gbps SFP+ transceivers to help gently push the transceiver into the port. Do not push so hard as to bend the tab.

Transceivers are keyed so that they can only be inserted with the correct orientation. If a transceiver does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented.

2. Position a cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the transceiver.

Insert the cable into the transceiver until the latching mechanism clicks.

Cables are keyed so that they can be inserted in only one way. If a cable does not slide in easily, ensure that it is correctly oriented. Do not insert a cable intended for an mSFP transceiver into a regular SFP+ transceiver. You may damage the cable. Do not force a standard SFP cable into an mSFP transceiver. You may damage the transceiver.

Removing and replacing an mSFP optical transceiver and cable

Use the procedures in this section to remove and replace mSFP transceivers. Follow these guidelines while removing and replacing mSFP transceivers.

Do not use the SFP+ extraction tool to remove the mSFP transceivers.

The mSFP transceivers are used only with the FC8-64 port blade. Narrower OM-3 LC cables are used to connect the

FC8-64.

It is recommended that the optical cable should be either removed from or inserted into the mSFP while the transceiver is out of the blade due to the port density.

• mSFP optical transceivers should not be inserted into ports intended for SFP+ transceivers. They will be faulted on power-up for Fabric OS 7.0.0 and later.

Cables for mSFP transceivers should not be used with standard SFP+ transceivers.

The pull tabs are not designed to be bent. Doing so may result in damage to the pull tab.

Removing an mSFP transceiver

Complete the following steps to remove an mSFP transceiver.

1. Grasp the pull tab firmly and pull the unit out of the port.

2. Remove the cable from the transceiver.

1.

Faulty chassis indicators .

2.

Recording critical device and SAN information

.

3.

Disconnecting from network and fabric

.

4.

Removing components from the chassis

.

5.

Installing the replacement chassis

.

6.

Installing components into the new chassis .

7.

Downloading the configuration

.

8.

Reconnecting the system to the network and fabric

.

9.

Verifying correct operation of system .

10.

Verifying correct configuration of the fabric

.

NOTE

The device must be removed from the fabric and powered off to perform this procedure. Contact your support provider if you have any questions about whether the chassis requires replacement.

Time and items required

The chassis replacement takes approximately 3 hours.

The following items are required for the chassis replacement:

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap

ESD grounding pads for protecting all blades and WWN cards

Serial cable and workstation computer with a terminal emulator application (such as HyperTerminal for Windows systems or TIP for Solaris systems), required only if serial console session used

Pallet jack or hydraulic or assisted lift that raises a minimum of 140 cm (55 in.) and carries a minimum of 113 kg (250 lb)

A surface on which to place the old chassis, such as a second lift or the pallet originally provided with the old chassis

Faulty chassis indicators

Verify that replacement of the chassis is necessary. Ensure that the components are firmly seated when troubleshooting, and contact your support provider with any questions about whether the chassis should be replaced.

Any of the following events might indicate the need to replace the chassis:

Visible mechanical damage to the chassis, including damage to sheet metal or card guides that prevents correct installation of a blade.

Bent or damaged connectors on the backplane (the surface inside the chassis to which the blades connect).

One or more components (such as a power supply, blower assembly, port blade, control processor blade, core switch blade, or WWN card) do not function properly even after the component was replaced.

Intermittent FAULTY codes for blades. Reseat the blade and visually inspect the right ejector stiffening rail for possible wear or damage. It is important that the blade ejector handles not slip out during blade installation. If this happens, it is usually due to excessive wear or damage to the right-hand ejector stiffening rail.

The psShow

or

fanShow

commands continue to show a faulty component even though the component was replaced.

The slotShow

command continues to show a faulty control processor, core switch, or port blade even though the blade was replaced.

Recording critical device and SAN information

Use a checklist, such as the following, to ensure that critical information is recorded for installing the new chassis.

This information includes current chassis IP addresses, license keys, the new chassis serial number, and output from supportShow. fabricShow, and other commands. Save output from commands to text files listed in the table.

All commands must be entered from a CLI session (Telnet or serial) to the active CP blade unless otherwise indicated. For detailed information about Fabric OS commands, refer to the

FS8-18 blade

The FS8-18 encryption blade is a high performance 16-port autosensing blade with data cryptographic (encryption/ decryption) and data compression capabilities designed for enterprises to secure their data against theft or unauthorized use and to compress tape data for maximum utilization of tape media. The encryption blade is a network-based solution that secures data-at-rest for heterogeneous tape drives, disk array LUNs, and virtual tape libraries.

The FS8-18 blade provides the following major features:

16 autosensing F_Ports, FL_Ports, E_Ports, EX_Ports, and M_Ports at 8 Gbps FC ports

16 SFP media interfaces

Encryption engines

Key management/generation

Key management with these hardware interfaces:

Two 1000Base copper type media interfaces

One smart card interface

Security supervisor tamper detection and response capability

Common Criteria (CC) EAL-3 compliant

FX8-24 blade

The FX8-24 blade has 12 external Fibre Channel (FC) SFP ports supporting the Fibre Channel Routing Services and 10 external 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE or GE) SFP ports supporting the Fibre Channel Over IP (FCIP) feature. There are also

2 licensable external 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10-GbE or 10-GE) SFP ports supporting FCIP. It operates with the Brocade

Fabric Operating System and can communicate with another FX8-24 or a Brocade 7800 for both Fibre Channel Routing

Services and FCIP, or a Brocade AP7420 for Fibre Channel Routing Services. The GbE ports on the FX8-24 are not compatible with the GbE ports on the FR4-18i blade, the Brocade 7500 switch, and the Brocade 7840 switch.

NOTE

The port diagram on the front panel uses the abbreviations GE for 1-GbE ports and 10 GE for 10-GbE ports.

NOTE

The 10-GbE SFPs used in the FX8-24 blade and the 10-Gbps FC SFPs used in the FC16-32/48 blades are not interchangeable.

The FX8-24 operates in one of three modes: 1) ten 1-GbE ports, 2) ten 1-GbE ports and one 10-GbE port, or 3) two 10-

GbE ports depending on licensing and subsequent configuration of GbE port mode. If operating in 10-GbE mode, the other end of the circuit must also be an FX8-24 operating in either 10-GbE mode or dual mode with the corresponding

VE_ports in 10-GbE mode. All GbE ports on the blade can be configured to work with either copper or optical SFPs.

The FX8-24 blade is intended as a platform for FCIP and Fibre Channel Routing Services. Refer to the

Brocade Fabric

Interpreting POST and boot results

The device performs Power-On Self-Test (POST) by default each time the chassis is powered on, rebooted, or reset.

The device can be rebooted using the reboot

(to reboot each CP individually) or fastBoot

commands. The fastBoot command reboots the switches without running POST. If the active CP blade is rebooted, it fails over to the standby CP blade.

POST

The device automatically performs POST each time it is powered on or reset.

To verify that POST has completed without error, do the following:

Verify that all LEDs return to a normal state after POST completes.

If one or more LEDs do not return to a normal state, and this is not due to the device being set to beacon, refer to the relevant LED table to identify and correct the problem. For port blades, and CP and core switch blades, the slotShow command can be used to check the status of the slots. For information about turning beaconing on or off, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Administration Guide

.

Verify that the switch prompt displays when POST completes.

If it does not display, POST was not successfully completed. Contact the device supplier for support.

Review the system error log using the errShow

or errDump

commands.

Any errors detected during POST are written to the system log, which is accessible through the errShow

command.

For information about error messages, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Message Reference

.

POST includes the following steps:

1. Preliminary POST diagnostics are run.

2. Operating system is initialized.

3. Hardware is initialized.

4. Diagnostic tests are run on several functions, including circuitry, port functionality, ability to send and receive frames, all aspects of memory, parity, statistics counters, and serialization.

Boot

In addition to POST, boot includes the following steps after POST is complete:

1. Universal port configuration is performed.

2. Links are initialized.

3. Fabric is analyzed. If any ports are connected to other switches, the device participates in a fabric configuration.

4. The device obtains a domain ID and assigns port addresses.

5. Unicast routing tables are constructed.

6. Normal port operation is enabled.

Diagnostics

Diagnostic tests are automatically run during POST to check the status of the device. Any error messages generated during POST are sent to the error logs and to the serial console, if connected.

Diagnostic tests can also be run manually to test and troubleshoot the hardware and the firmware, including internal connections and circuitry, transceivers, and port cables. However, diagnostic tests are generally intended for use by support personnel.

NOTE

Error messages do not necessarily indicate that the device requires maintenance.

Each diagnostic test can be implemented by entering the related command through a Telnet or serial session. For a list of diagnostic tests and commands, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Administration Guide

.

All diagnostic tests are run at all supported link speeds. They might temporarily lock the transmit and receive speeds to a specific speed. Some diagnostic tests require interconnecting the ports to each other or using loopback plugs. If ports are interconnected, the media (cables and transceivers) at each end of the connection must be of the same type. For example, short wavelength media must be connected to short wavelength media, and likewise with long wavelength media and copper media.

For more information about diagnostic tests and how to run them, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Administration Guide

and the

Brocade Fabric OS Command Reference

. For information about system error messages ( errShow

or errDump

), refer to the
