(3C16978) User Guide

INTRODUCTION

The SuperStack II Switch 1000BASE-TModule provides a Gigabit Ethernet module for the SuperStack II Switch 1100 (12 and 24 port), SuperStack II Switch 3300 (12 and 24 port), and SuperStack II Switch 3300 FX.

The module requires management software version 2.42 or later to be installed on the Switch. For instructions on upgrading management software, refer to the documentation supplied with your Switch.

The module conforms to the full duplex implementation of the Gigabit Ethernet standard IEEE 802.3ab. The module supports a 100 m cable segment, using Category 5 copper cabling and RJ-45connectors, as defined in theANSI/TIA/EIA-568-ACommercial Building Telecommunications Cabling Standard, and in the1000BASE-Tstandard.

A white paper which describes 1000BASE-Ttechnology and cabling requirements in more detail is available from the 3Com® Web site.

INSTALLATION ANDREMOVAL

WARNING: Installation and removal of the module must be carried out by qualified personnel only. Before installing the module into a unit, you must first disconnect the unit from the mains power supply. For full safety instructions, refer to the user guide that accompanies the unit.

AVERTISSEMENT: Confiez l'installation et la dépose de ce module à un personnel qualifié. Avant d'installer ce module dans un groupe, vous devez au préalable débrancher ce groupe de l'alimentation secteur. Pour prendre connaissance des consignes complètes de sécurité, consultez le guide utilisateur qui accompagne ce groupe.

WARNHINWEIS: Die Installation und der Ausbau des Moduls darf nur durch Fachpersonal erfolgen. Vor dem Installieren des Moduls in einem Gerät muß zuerst der Netzstecker des Geräts abgezogen werden. Vollständige Sicherheitsanweisungen sind dem Benutzerhandbuch des Geräts zu entnehmen.

WARNING:RJ-45 Port. This is a shieldedRJ-45data socket. It cannot be used as a telephone socket. Only connectRJ-45data connectors to this socket.

Either shielded or unshielded data cables with shielded or unshielded jacks can be connected to this data socket.

AVERTISSEMENT: Le port RJ-45.Il s'agit d’une prise femelle blindée de données RJ-45. Vous ne pouvez pas l’utiliser comme prise de téléphone. Branchez uniquement des connecteurs de données RJ-45 sur cette prise femelle.

Les câbles de données blindés ou non blindés, avec les jacks blindés ou non blindés, l'un ou l'autre, peuvent être branchés à cette prise de courant de données.

WARNHINWEIS: RJ-45Ports.RJ-45-Anschluß.Dies ist eine abgeschirmte RJ-45-Datenbuchsen. Sie kann nicht als Telefonanschlußbuchsen verwendet werden. An diesen Buchsen dürfen nur RJ-45-Datenstecker angeschlossen werden.

Dieser Datenstecker kann entweder mit abgeschirmten oder unabgeschirmten Datenkabeln mit abgeschirmten oder unabgeschirmten Klinkensteckern verbunden werden.

Handling the Module

The module can be easily damaged by electrostatic discharge. To prevent damage, observe the following:

TDo not remove the module from its packaging until you are ready to install it into a Switch.

TDo not touch any of the pins, connections or components on the module.

THandle the module only by its edges and front panel.

TAlways wear an anti-staticwristband connected to a suitable earth point.

TAlways store or transport modules in anti-staticpackaging.

Installing the Module into a Switch

CAUTION: When a module is installed into a Switch, the Switch can only support one port trunk, instead of two. If you have two port trunks configured on your Switch, remove the second one before installing the module. If you do not remove the second port trunk, both port trunks are automatically removed.

CAUTION: If the module replaces a1000BASE-SXor a1000BASE-LXmodule, all user settings are retained, with the exception ofauto-negotiation,which is always enabled. If the1000BASE-Tmodule replaces any other type of module, all user settings return to their default values.

1Ensure that the Switch is disconnected from the mains power supply and that you are wearing an anti-staticwristband connected to a suitable earth point.

2Place the Switch on a flat surface. Using a suitable screwdriver, remove the blanking plate from the rear of the Switch. Do not remove any other screws from the rear of the Switch.

3Keep the blanking plate and screws in a safe place. If you remove the module at any time, you must replace the blanking plate to prevent dust and debris entering the Switch and to aid the circulation of cooling air.

4Hold the module so that the text on the front panel is upright, and insert it into the Switch, ensuring the connectors are fully engaged. Tighten the two captive thumbscrews securing the module.

5Install the module:

a Ensure that the Switch is turned on.

b Plug theRJ-45connector on the cable into theRJ-45socket on the module.

c Connect the other end of the cable segment to a device fitted with a1000BASE-TGigabit Ethernet connection.

6Check the LEDs on the front of the Switch to ensure that the module is operating correctly. Refer to “LEDs” on page 1 for more information.

Removing the Module from a Switch

1Ensure that the power supply and connection cables are disconnected from the Switch.

2Place the Switch on a flat surface. Undo the two captive thumbscrews securing the module into the Switch. Do not remove any other screws from the Switch.

3If you are not fitting another module immediately, you must replace the blanking plate to ensure that dust and debris do not enter the Switch and to aid the circulation of cooling air.

MANAGING THEMODULE

The module requires management software version 2.42 or later to be installed on the Switch. For instructions on upgrading management software, refer to the documentation supplied with your Switch.

Support for the management software is supplied by 3Com Transcend® Network Control Services.

When the module is installed in a suitable Switch, the Switch interfaces contain features to monitor the auto-negotiationsystem specified in the IEEE 802.3 Ethernet standard. This system allows the module port to automatically detect the flow control setting of a Gigabit Ethernet link.

The Current Flow Control field in the Web interface displays the method of flow control currently used by the module port. Ifauto-negotiationis not yet complete,Not Determined is displayed.

It is not possible to disable the auto-negotiationsystem through either the Web or the Command Line Interface. An error message is displayed if you try to disableauto-negotiationon the module through the Command Line Interface.

The module port has restricted functionality — for details, see “Module Port Restrictions” below. As a consequence, the Port Setup page for the port does not contain all the standard listboxes.

MODULEPORTRESTRICTIONS

When using the module port, note the following:

TThe port only operates in full duplex.

TThe port only supports full duplex flow control in symmetrical mode, as defined by the Gigabit Ethernet standard. You cannot disable or alter this mode.

TThe port only supports the Store and Forward forwarding mode.

TThe port does not support PACE.

TYou cannot manage the port using the Internetwork Packet Exchange protocol (IPX).

TThe port cannot be part of a port trunk.

TThe port does not support VLT tagging.

TYou cannot create a resilient link pair that includes the port and another port that uses VLT tagging.

TYou cannot disable auto-negotiationin the module.

TYou can only restart auto-negotiationusing SNMP, and not from the Web interface or from the Command Line Interface.

For information on other module port restrictions, refer to the documentation supplied with your Switch.

PROBLEMSOLVING

If you suspect a problem, carry out these steps before contacting your supplier:

TEnsure that the Switch in which the module is fitted is turned on.

TEnsure that the module is correctly installed in the Switch.

TEnsure that the device at the far end of the link is on and operating correctly.

TEnsure that all connectors on the cable are correctly engaged.

TEnsure that the cabling installation conforms to the Category 5 standard. A white paper which describes this standard is available from the 3Com web site.

For more general problem solving information, refer to the documentation supplied with your Switch.
