Brocade DCX features

The Brocade DCX represents the next generation of advanced Fibre Channel enterprise-class platforms used to intelligently interconnect storage devices, hosts, and servers in a Storage Area Network (SAN). The Brocade DCX is the highest-performance and highestscalability enterprise-class platform offered by Brocade. It satisfies the most demanding Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability (RAS), performance, and scalability requirements, while delivering investment protection, interoperability, and fabric-based intelligence advantages found only in the Brocade product family.

Key features of the Brocade DCX include:

• Up to 512 external ports in a single chassis, enabling high density SAN configurations with reduced footprint.

• Support for 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-Gbps auto-sensing Fibre Channel (FC) ports. Trunking technology groups up to eight ports to create high performance 64-Gbps ISL trunks between switches. (10-Gbps ports (FC10-6) are 10 Gbps only.)

• Up to 1024 ports in the same rack can connect with the use of inter-chassis links (ICLs). Up 1536 ports can be connected via

ICLs in adjacent racks.

• Support for high-performance port blades running at 1, 2, 4, 8, or 10 Gbps, enabling flexible system configuration.

• Redundant and hot-swappable CP8 and CR8 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, FL_Ports, Ex_Ports and M_Ports (mirror ports). (10-Gbps ports

(FC10-6) are E_Ports only.)

• Data cryptographic (encryption/decryption) and data compression capabilities through the Brocade FS8-18 Encryption Blade.

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

• Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) capability through the FCOE10-24 blade.

Hardware components

The Brocade DCX features 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 eight hot-swappable port blade assemblies that can be configured in a single chassis, delivering up to 512 Fibre Channel ports.

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24 15

Hardware components

• Two slots for control processor blades (CP8):

– A single active CP8 blade can control all 512 ports in the chassis.

– The standby CP8 blade assumes control of the Brocade DCX if the active CP fails.

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 (CR8):

– CR8 blade interconnects all port blades.

– Two inter-chassis link (ICL) connectors per blade to connect to another chassis.

– Both CR8 blades are active.

• Modular hot-swappable port blades:

– 16-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-16)

– 32-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-32)

– 48-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-48)

– 64-port, 8-Gbps blades (FC8-64)

• Modular hot-swappable application blades:

– FX8-24: 24-port (12 FC, 10 GbE, 2 10GbE) FCIP extension blade enabling long distance communication over existing

IP infrastructure.

High availability

The following features contribute to the Brocade DCX high-availability design:

• Redundant, hot-swappable blades and FRUs

• Enhanced data integrity on all data paths

• Fabric Shortest Path First (FSPF) rerouting around failed links

20

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24

Serviceability

• Integration with Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) managers

• Automatic control processor failover

• Nondisruptive "hot" software code loads and activation

• Easy configuration, save, and restore

• Hot-swappable World Wide Name (WWN) cards

The high-availability software architecture of the Brocade DCX provides a common framework for all applications that reside on the system, allowing global and local states to be maintained through any component failure. High-availability elements consist of the High

Availability Manager, the heartbeat, the fault/health framework, the replicated database, initialization, and software upgrade.

The High Availability Manager controls access to the standby control processor, facilitates software upgrades, prevents extraneous switchover activity, closes and flushes streams, provides flow control and message buffering, and supports a centralized active and standby state.

Reliability

The Brocade DCX uses the following error detection and correction mechanisms to ensure reliability of data:

• Error Detection and Fault Isolation (EDFI) mechanism, which checks for encoder errors and fault isolation, such as cyclic redundancy checking (CRC), parity checking, checksum, and illegal address checking.

• Power-on self-test (POST).

• Dual control processors that enable hot, nondisruptive fast firmware upgrades.

• One serial port and two Ethernet ports (on each control processor) for management and for service. Offline control processor diagnostics and remote diagnostics simplify troubleshooting. The standby control processor monitors diagnostics to ensure it is operational, should a failover be necessary.

• Bus monitoring and control of blades and other field-replaceable units (FRUs).

Serviceability

The Brocade DCX provides the following features to enhance and ensure serviceability:

• Modular design with hot-swappable components

• Flash memory that stores two firmware images per control processor

• USB port on control processor blades for all tasks that formerly required an FTP/SCP server, including software and firmware upgrades

• Nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM), containing the OEM serial number, Brocade serial number, revision information, and part number information

• Background health-check daemon

• Memory scrubber, self test, and bus ping to determine if a bus is not functioning

• RASlog messages

• SMI-S compliant

• Watchdog timers

• Status LEDs

• Predictive diagnostics analysis through Fabric Watch

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

Software features

• SNMP (including version 3) integration with higher-layer managers

Software features

The Fabric OS allows any Fibre Channel-compliant device to attach to the switches as long as it conforms to the device login, name service, and related Fibre Channel standards. Each operating environment requires that a Fibre Channel host bus adapter (HBA) be available with a standards-compliant driver for correct interface to the fabric.

Fabric OS consists of a set of embedded applications running on top of an embedded Linux operating system kernel. These applications include:

• Name server

• Alias server

• Zone server

• Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) agent

• SMI-S compliant API

• Syslog auditing

• RCS (Reliable Commit Service)

• NTP

• Tasks to manage address assignment, routing, link initialization, fabric initialization, link shutdown, Brocade DCX shutdown, and the user interface

Security

The following table highlights some of the key security features available for the Brocade DCX and for other Brocade enterprise-class products running Fabric OS 5.2.0 or later. For details, contact your Brocade DCX supplier and refer to the Brocade White Paper, "The

Network manageability

The Brocade DCX has a single domain and is managed as a single element with the Data Center Fabric Manager (DCFM). The Brocade

DCX responds to its own IP address and appears as a separate entity to the Telnet protocol and SNMP.

All management interfaces, such as Telnet, Web Tools, standards-compliant SMI-S, and Management Server, support a "port N within blade M" naming scheme.

The Brocade DCX supports SNMPv1 and SNMPv3. When SNMP devices send SNMP messages to a management console running

SAN management software, the information is stored in a management information base (MIB). Fabric OS v6.1.1_enc and later supports the latest Fibre Alliance Fibre Channel Management (FCMGMT) and Storage Management Initiative (SMI) MIBs, which allow common information necessary for management software to provide information to a SAN administrator. Refer to the Brocade Fabric

OS Administration Guide for additional MIB information.

Qualified cables for the FC8-64 port blade.......................................................................................................................................... 48

Installing ICL cables (optional)......................................................................................................................................................................49

Requirements and precautions

The cable management comb is attached to the chassis under the chassis door and allows for simple cable management. The comb can be installed without service disruption.

Route the cables down 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.

ATTENTION

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.

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.

The FC8-64 high density port blade cannot use the standard LC cables because the pitch between optics in the new mSFP transceiver is smaller than in standard SFPs. Patch cables and panels can be used to attach standard size cabling to the blade if necessary. The following figure illustrates the mSFP to SFP patch cable. See "Best Practices Guide: High Density Cable Management Solutions"

(available at http://www.brocade.com

) for cable management guidelines for high-density port solutions, cable and patch panel part numbers.

Please note that the duplex clip on the mSFP end of the cable is black for easier recognition. See Qualified cables for the FC8-64 port blade on page 48 for a listing of the qualified mSFP optical cables for the FC8-64 port blade.

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.

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24 51

Providing power to the DCX Backbone

Providing power to the DCX Backbone

ATTENTION

Use the supplied power cords. Ensure the facility power receptacle is the correct type, supplies the required voltage, and is properly grounded. (D004)

1. Connect the AC power cords to the power supply assemblies. One to four power cords are required depending on electrical service.

2. Connect the power cords to a power source with voltage of 200 to 240 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz (normally two power cords or as many as four) or to a power source with voltage of 110 to 120 VAC, 47 to 63 Hz (two to four power cords).

ATTENTION

Use of the high-voltage line (200 to 240 VAC) is highly recommended because of better power-conversion efficiency.

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

4. The Brocade DCX 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. For information about LED patterns, see

Monitoring System Components

on page 63.

You can bypass POST by using the fastBoot command. You can also disable POST for successive reboots on the Brocade

DCX using the diagDisablePost command.

ATTENTION

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

Configuring the Brocade DCX

The Brocade DCX 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 Brocade DCX configuration includes the following parameters:

• IP address and subnet mask for the chassis

• IP addresses, host names, subnet masks, and gateway addresses for both CP blades

• Switch name

• Domain ID for the Brocade DCX (optional)

• WWN for the Brocade DCX

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

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 Brocade DCX 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.

52

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24

FIGURE 15 Configuration tasks

Establishing a serial connection and logging on to the Brocade DCX

Establishing a serial connection and logging on to the

Brocade DCX

1. Verify that the Brocade DCX is powered on and that POST is complete by verifying that all power LED indicators on the port, control processor, and core switch blades display a steady green light.

2. Remove the shipping cap from the CONSOLE port on the active CP. Use the serial cable provided with the Brocade DCX to connect the CONSOLE port on the active CP to a computer workstation. The active CP blade is indicated by an illuminated

(blue) LED.

ATTENTION

The CONSOLE port is intended primarily for the initial setting of the IP address and for service purposes.

3. Access the Brocade DCX using a terminal emulator application (such as HyperTerminal in a Windows environment or tip in a

UNIX environment).

4. Disable any serial communication programs running on the workstation (such as synchronization programs).

DCX.

54

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24

Configuring the IP addresses

NOTE

The default IP addresses and host names for the Brocade DCX are:- 10.77.77.75 / CP0 (the CP blade in slot 6 at the time of configuration)- 10.77.77.74 / CP1 (the CP blade in slot 7 at the time of configuration)

ATTENTION

Resetting an IP address while the Brocade DCX has active IP traffic or has management and monitoring tools running, such as

DCFM, Fabric Watch, and SNMP, can cause traffic to be interrupted or stopped.

1. Log in to the active CP as admin using the serial cable connection.

2. Set up the Brocade DCX IP address by entering the ipaddrset -chassis command: swDir:admin> ipAddrSet -chassis

Enter the information at the prompts. Specify the -chassis IP address. The -sw 0 IP address is no longer valid on this chassis.

NOTE

The addresses 10.0.0.0 through 10.0.0.255 are reserved and used internally by the Brocade DCX. External IP addresses must not use these addresses.

3. Set up the CP0 IP address by entering the ipaddrset -cp 0 command: swDir:admin> ipAddrSet -cp 0

Enter the information at the prompts.

Logging off the serial console port and disconnecting the serial cable

You can use the serial port to monitor error messages through the serial connection. If the serial port is no longer required, use the logout command to log out of the serial console, remove the serial cable, and replace the plug in the serial port.

Connecting an Ethernet cable and opening a Telnet session

NOTE

Connecting the CP blades to a private network/VLAN is recommended.

After using a serial connection to configure the IP addresses for the Brocade DCX, you can connect the active CP blade to the local area network (LAN).

By establishing an Ethernet connection, you can complete the Brocade DCX configuration using a serial session, Telnet, or management applications, such as Web Tools or DCFM.To create an Ethernet connection to the Brocade DCX, follow these steps.

1. Remove the shipping plug from the Ethernet port on the active CP blade.

2. Insert one end of an Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port.

3. Connect the other end to an Ethernet 10/100/1000 BaseT LAN.

The Brocade DCX can be accessed through a remote connection using any of the management tools, such as Telnet, Web

Tools, or DCFM.

4. To complete any additional Brocade DCX configuration procedures through a Telnet session, log in to the Brocade DCX by

Telnet, using the admin login. The default password is password .

Customizing a switch name

The switch name of the Brocade DCX can be up to 30 characters long as of Fabric OS release 6.3.0; can include letters, numbers, and underscore characters; and must begin with a letter. Fabric OS releases earlier than 6.3.0 require switch names of 15 characters or less.

NOTE

Changing the name causes a domain address format RSCN to be issued.

1. Type switchName followed by the new name in double quotes.

swDir:admin> switchName "swModularSwitch5"

Committing configuration...

Done.

swModularSwitch5:admin>

2. Record the new name for reference.

Domain: (1.239) [1] 3

5. Complete the remaining prompts or press Ctrl+D to accept the settings and exit.

6. Enter switchEnable to re-enable the Brocade DCX.

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 Brocade DCX by Telnet, using the admin account.

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>" where 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 either 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 rest will be stored as backup servers that can take over if the active NTP server fails. The principal or primary FCS switch synchronizes its time with the NTP server every 64 seconds.

switch:admin> tsclockserver

LOCL switch:admin> tsclockserver "132.163.135.131" switch:admin> tsclockserver

132.163.135.131

switch:admin>

The following example shows how to set up more than one NTP server using a DNS name: switch:admin> tsclockserver "10.32.170.1;10.32.170.2;ntp.localdomain.net"

Updating Clock Server configuration...done.

Updated with the NTP servers

Changes to the clock server value on the principal or primary FCS switch are propagated to all switches in the fabric

Verifying the PID mode and connecting to the fabric

Before connecting the Brocade DCX to the fabric, verify that the port identifier (PID) mode on the Brocade DCX matches the other switches in the fabric. This parameter must be identical for all switches in the fabric and is set using the configure command.

Software licenses

Depending on the vendor agreement, certain licenses are factory installed on the Brocade DCX. To determine which licenses are enabled, use the licenseShow command.

swDir:admin> licenseshow

AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG:

Web license

Zoning license

Extended Fabric license

Fabric Watch license

Performance Monitor license

Trunking license

In this example, the license key is AAbbccDDeeFFeeGG. Keep a copy of the license key for reference.

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24 59

Installing transceivers and attaching cables

The 64-bit chassis ID is required to obtain and activate licenses for the Brocade DCX. The chassis ID is available through the licenseIdShow command. The licenseShow and licenseIdShow commands must be entered on the active CP blade. Refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Administration Guide for more information.

Installing transceivers and attaching cables

Follow these steps to install SFPs, SFP+s, mSFPs (FC8-64 port card only), or XFPs (FC10-6 port card only) and cables to the Brocade

DCX.

NOTE mSFP transceivers are compatible only with the FC8-64 port blade. While they will fit in other blades, this configuration is unsupported and will generate an error.

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 eight ports). The ports and cables used in trunking groups must meet specific requirements. Refer to the Brocade Fabric OS Administration

Guide for more information.

1. 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.

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.

3. Repeat the above steps for the remaining ports.

4. Organize the cables (see

Managing cables on page 60).

5. Verify the Brocade DCX-4S and port status using the switchShow command.

6. Verify fabric connectivity using the fabricShow command.

Managing cables

ATTENTION

The minimum bend radius should be no smaller than 10x the cable radius.

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 DCX-4S, a pair of vertical cable management finger assemblies have been provided to keep the cables from hanging down in front of other blades.

Following is a list of recommendations:

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

• 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.

ATTENTION

Follow ESD precautions.

NOTE

The FC8-16, FC8-32, and FC8-48 blades are compatible with the Brocade DCX, Brocade DCX-4S, and the Brocade 48000.

The FC8-64 port blade, the FS8-18 encryption blade, and the FX8-24 and FCOE10-24 blades are compatible only with the

Brocade DCX and DCX-4S.

1. Remove the chassis door (

Removal and replacement of the chassis door

on page 83).

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

Monitoring System Components

on page 63 for LED locations.

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 slotShow command to view the status of 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.

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. See

Cable routing table on page 135 at the end of this chapter for a

blank sample table.

NOTE

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

7. Disconnect all cables and the SFP, SFP+, or XFP 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 before removing the cable from the transceiver.

8. 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.

4. Remove the serial cable from the active CP blade and attach it to the standby CP blade.

5. Type firmwareDownload -s -U v X.X.X (where X.X.X

is the firmware version you are downloading) to download the firmware to the standby CP blade.

The -s option also disables the autoreboot, so you must manually issue a reboot after the download finishes to initiate firmwarecommit. Enter all requested information (use default values).

The -U option indicates that the download should come from the USB device. If you do not use this option, you are prompted with Download from USB [No}: Type Y to download from the USB device.

6. When the download process finishes, type firmwareDownloadStatus to verify that the firmware has been updated.

7. Ensure that you are still logged in to the standby CP blade (the blade for which you just changed the firmware level) and type reboot . The reboot of the standby CP will initiate a firmwarecommit to the secondary partition and log you out.

8. Log back in to the standby CP blade and type firmwareDownloadStatus on the standby CP blade to validate a successful commit. This may take 10 minutes.

9. Log out of the standby CP blade and log in to the active CP blade.

10. Type haEnable to re-enable HA on the active CP blade.

11. Type haShow and verify that the command output includes "HA enabled, Heartbeat Up, HA State synchronized". If not, re-enter the command until you have verified that redundancy is achieved.

12. Type firmwareShow to verify that the firmware version has been updated and that the versions are the same on the two CP blades.

13. Pack the faulty CP blade in the packaging provided with the new CP blade, and contact the switch supplier to determine the return procedure.

14. Replace the chassis door (

WWN card removal and replacement

WWN card removal and replacement

There are two WWN cards located beneath the WWN bezel (logo plate). As you are facing the bezel on the non-port-side of the chassis,

WWN 1 is located on the left side, and WWN 2 is on the right. Before replacing cards, refererence RASlog messages and use the WWN

Recovery Tool ( wwnrecover ) as directed in the following sections to recover WWN cards. The tool will direct you to contact customer support if recovery fails. In these cases, Brocade Support will determine whether one or both WWN cards need replaced and will request the partner or OEM to send WWN cards from FRU inventory to the nearest Brocade Support office to be reprogrammed.

This section provides information on RASlog messages indicating WWN card problems, the WWN Recovery Tool, and complete steps to remove and replace WWN cards.

The following WWN card replacement procedures are available:

• Hot-swap procedure. Use this procedure when replacing one WWN card only. This procedure is non-disruptive as a system reboot is not required under most conditions.

NOTE

After replacing a WWN card using this procedure, RASlog messages EM-1220 or EM-1222 may indicate that a discrepancy or mismatch is detected between the WWN cards. You must monitor messages for errors and warnings, and then follow directions in messages to use wwnrecover 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

on page 106 and

Verifying the need for replacement on page 106 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)

WWN card removal and replacement

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.

TABLE 13 RASlog messages from WWN card audit

Error message

[EM-1220]...M1, ERROR ... A problem was found on one or both CID cards (x), please run the wwnrecover tool to get more information and recovery options.

[EM-1221], ... M1, INFO, ... A WWN card has been inserted, a WWN verification audit will be run to detect any mismatches or other problems.

[HIL-1650], CHASSIS, ERROR...Unable to detect WWN card in chassis.

Access to WWN halted...

[EM-1222], ... M1, WARNING, ... A WWN card access problem has been encountered, please run the wwnrecover tool to get more information and recovery options.

Recovery is not possible. Please contact Brocade Technical Support for replacement of the corrupted or inaccessible WWN(s).

Issue

Some kind of error or mismatch has been detected in the WWN card audit.

A second WWN card is enabled and the WWN card audit will be run. If an error is detected during the audit, EM-1220 and EM-1222 messages are generated.

WWN card has been removed from the chassis. Replace as soon as possible since system is in degraded state.

An error is detected during normal access to the WWN cards; typically, one of the cards is corrupted or inaccessible.

The license ID on the two WWN cards do not match.

The wwnrecover utility must be used to maintain data integrity when replacing one or both WWN cards using instructions in the WWN card removal and replacement section. To run wwnrecover , log in as admin and enter the following command: switch:admin# wwnrecover

For more information on wwnrecover and command syntax, refer to the Brocade Fabric OS Command Reference .

Verifying the need for replacement

Before replacing a WWN card, verify that the replacement is necessary. Any of the following events can indicate that the card requires replacement:

• Status LEDs on the WWN bezel not reflecting the actual status of the components.

• Power or Status LEDs on WWN card (beneath logo plate) indicate a problem.

• Problems viewing or modifying the data stored on the WWN card.

• Error messages regarding WWN units #1 or #2 from the chassisshow output.

• If an EM-1220 or EM-1222 error message occurs in the RASlog and WWN card recovery is not successful using wwnrecover .

WWN card removal and replacement

NOTE

In the event of an EM-1220 or EM-1222 error message due to WWN card data corruption or data mis-matches across WWN cords, data recovery may be possible using the wwnrecover utility. For more information on using this utility, refer to

Using wwnrecover

on page 106.

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 on page

106.

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 on page

108.

1. Remove the defective WWN card using procedures under Removing the WWN card and WWN bezel (logo plate) on page 110

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

4. 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.

5. Determine the active CP by entering the haShow command.

6. On the active CP, run the wwnrecover command and specify the WWN card that you replaced (WWN 2 or WWN 1) when prompted.

7. If wwnrecover messages prompt for a system reboot, reboot both CPs to ensure the system is running with valid WWN card data.

8. 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 .

9. 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)

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

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

12. 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.

Follow electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions. Wear a wrist grounding strap connected to chassis ground (if the chassis is plugged in) or a bench ground.

Removal and replacement of the inter-chassis link

(ICL) cables

NOTE

ICL ports can be used only with an ICL license. After the addition or removal of a license, the license enforcement is performed on the ICL 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. The backbones can be any combination of up to three Brocade

DCX-4S and Brocade DCX chassis.

NOTE

For FOS 6.4.0 and later, three DCX chassis can be supported in a triangular ICL configuration as long as the third chassis is housed in an immediately adjacent rack so that the cables can reach the ICL ports.

ATTENTION

If ICL cables are not in use, the ports must have EMI plugs installed to meet EMI and other regulatory certifications.

Introduction

For information about troubleshooting the entire fabric, refer to the Fabric OS Troubleshooting and Diagnostics Guide.

The Brocade DCX includes a number of diagnostic aids to assist with troubleshooting, including LEDs on the hardware, commands that display current status, diagnostic tests for hardware and software, and error messages. In addition, a number of managing and monitoring features are available, such as Fabric Manager, Web Tools, Fabric Watch, and Advanced Performance Monitoring.

If the Brocade DCX does not operate as expected, the following steps can be taken to diagnose the problem:

• Check the LEDs and see the LED tables (

Monitoring System Components on page 63) for interpretation and recommended

actions.

• Review the results of the last POST run by the Brocade DCX (

Interpreting POST and boot results

on page 144).

• Review the error logs. (Refer to the Fabric OS Troubleshooting and Diagnostics Guide for more information).

– Review RASlog entries.

– Type the sensorShow command to determine the status of the hardware components.

Run diagnostic tests ( Diagnostics

on page 145).

– Reboot the Brocade DCX or power the entire chassis off and then on (

Powering off the Brocade DCX on page 147 and

Providing power to the DCX Backbone

on page 52).

If the problem is still unresolved after these steps, contact your support provider. The information required by your support provider is listed under

Contacting Brocade Technical Support on page 11.

Obtaining chassis and component status

The CLI commands in the following table provide status and environmental information about the chassis and its components. These commands provide information only, and they do not interrupt traffic flow. For more information about these commands, refer to the

Brocade Fabric OS Command Reference.

Interpreting POST and boot results

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

DCX 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 Brocade DCX automatically performs POST each time it is powered on or reset.

To verify that POST has completed without error:

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

Monitoring System Components on page 63).

If one or more LEDs do not return to a normal state, and this is not due to the Brocade DCX 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 Brocade DCX 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.

144

Brocade DCX Backbone Hardware Installation Guide

53-1000685-24

Troubleshooting

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

4. The Brocade DCX 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 Brocade DCX. 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 Brocade DCX 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 link speeds of 1, 2, 4, and 8 Gbps. 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 Fabric OS

Troubleshooting and Diagnostics Guide .
