Specific Information

Introduction

This appendix contains local management information that is specific to the 9F206-02FDDI Repeater Module.

The 9F206-02FDDI Repeater Module physically attaches to theFNB-1and theFNB-2on the SmartSwitch 9000’s FNB backplane. By default, the module inserts into four rings (the primary and secondary rings of theFNB-1and theFNB-2).The9F206-02Configuration Screen allows you to customize this configuration to your particular needs. The default values that appear on this screen are determined by the module’s DIP switches. (For more information on setting this module’s DIP switches, refer to theSmartSwitch 9000 9F206-02 FDDI Repeater MicroLAN Module User’s Guide.)

The 9F206-02Configuration Screen allows you to:

Establish whether the module’s two FDDI-1front panel connections will insert into the backplane’sFNB-1(primary and secondary) rings or bypass theFNB-1rings (see Figure 1).

Establish whether the module’s two FDDI-2front panel connections will insert into the backplane’sFNB-2(primary and secondary) rings or bypass theFNB-2rings (see Figure 1).

The terms “Inserted” and “Bypassed” refer to relays that are located on the module. Inserted causes a relay to connect the module’s specific front panel connections to the selected ring. Bypassed causes a relay to disconnect the module’s specific front panel connections from the selected ring.

9F206-02Configuration Screen Fields

The following information briefly explains each 9F206-02Configuration Screen field.

FNB-1Status(Toggle)

Allows you to control whether or not the module’s FDDI-1front panel ports will connect (insert) to the backplane’sFNB-1rings (see Figure 1).

When set to Inserted, the module’s FDDI-1(A and B) ports insert directly into the backplane’sFNB-1primary and secondary rings.

When set to Bypassed, the module’s FDDI-1(A and B) ports do not connect to the backplane. Therefore, no communications between theFDDI-1front panel ports and the backplane can occur.

(FNB-1)Port A Status

Indicates whether there is a link or no link between the module’s FDDI-1A port and the backplane’sFNB-1.

(FNB-1)Port B Status

Indicates whether there is a link or no link between the module’s FDDI-1B port and the backplane’sFNB-1.

(FNB-1)External Path(Toggle)

Indicates the specific ring of the backplane’s FNB-1that extends out to traverse the module’sFDDI-1front panel A and B ports. You can change the value in this field from Primary to Secondary. A third value (Isolated) appears in this field whenever the module is not inserted into theFNB-1(i.e., when the value in theFNB-1Status field is “Bypassed”).

(FNB-1)Configuration

Indicates one of the following:

FNB-1is inserted (“Inserted”) on the backplane ring.

FNB-1is isolated (“Bypassed”) from the backplane ring.

DAS-1Status

Indicates the status of DAS-1:

Dual Homed

Isolated

Thru

Twisted

Wrapped

9F206-02Module Specific Information

(DAS-1)Port A Status

Displays the status (Link or No-Link)and the connection type(A-A,A-B,orA-M)of the module’sFDDI-1front panel A port. The value “Link” indicates that an operating workstation is connected to the module’sFDDI-1front panel A port.

(DAS-1)Port B Status

Displays the status (Link or No-Link)and the connection type(A-B,B-B,B-M)of the module’sFDDI-1front panel B port. The value “Link” indicates that an operating workstation is connected to the module’sFDDI-1front panel B port.

(DAS-1)Port A Type

Identifies the type of FDDI Port Interface Module (FPIM) that is installed in the module’s FDDI-1front panel A port.

(DAS-1)Port B Type

Identifies the type of FDDI Port Interface Module (FPIM) that is installed in the module’s FDDI-1front panel B port.

FNB-2Status(Toggle)

Allows you to control whether or not the module’s FDDI-2front panel ports will connect (insert) to the backplane’sFNB-2rings (see Figure 1).

When set to Inserted, the module’s FDDI-2(A and B) ports insert directly into the backplane’sFNB-2primary and secondary rings.

When set to Bypassed, the module’s FDDI-2(A and B) ports do not connect to the backplane. Therefore, no communications between theFDDI-2front panel ports and the backplane can occur.
