Introduction

This appendix contains local management information that is specific to the 9F426-02FDDI Switch Module.

Module Interfaces

The 9F426-02FDDI Switch Module has seven interfaces. Table 1 lists the identifying number, name, and description of each interface.

FNB Configuration

The FNB Configuration Menu (Figure 1) contains menu selections that allow you to configure the attachment of an FDDI Switch Module to the Flexible Network Buses on the chassis’ backplane, and to display an illustration that shows the topology of the FNB’s FDDI rings connected to that module.

NOTE

In earlier versions of SmartSwitch 9000 Module Local Management, the FNB Configuration selection appeared at the bottom of the General Configuration Screen (as depicted in the SmartSwitch 9000 Module Local Management User’s Guide). However, in recent versions of SmartSwitch 9000 Module Local Management, the FNB Configuration selection appears on the Module

FNB Resource Configuration

The 9F426-02FDDI Switch Module is capable of bridging/switching any three, of five possible interfaces, depending on the way you configure the module. The module’s INB connection is fixed (notuser-configured).

The FNB Resource Configuration Screen (Figure 2) allows you to connect both front panel ports, both FNB ports, or one front panel and one FNB port to the bridge/switch. Redirecting one or both of the module’s front panel FDDI interfaces to the FNB backplane creates an INB to FNB bridge/switch product that allows migration from FNB modules to INB modules.

The SmartSwitch 9000 FNB backplane is composed of two FDDI Networks (FNB- 1 and FNB-2).The FNB Resource Configuration Screen lists all possible connections a module can support on the FNB, displays the current connection, and allows you to change the connection.

FNB Resource Configuration Screen Fields

The following information briefly explains each FNB Resource Configuration Screen field.

Current FDDI Con

Displays the current connections of the selected module to the SmartSwitch 9000’s FNB.

Config ID

Displays an identification number that is automatically assigned to each configuration.

FDDI Connections

Displays all possible connections of the selected module to the SmartSwitch 9000’s FNB (For a description of each of these connections, refer to Table 2).

Changing the Current FNB Connection

To change the current FNB connection:

1.Use the arrow keys to highlight a desired FDDI connection.

2.Press the Return key.

3.The connection you selected appears in the Current FDDI Con field.

4.Use the arrow keys to highlight SAVE at the bottom of the screen and press theReturn key.

The message “SAVED OK” appears. This message indicates that the FNB connection you selected has been implemented. If you exit without saving, the message “NOT SAVED --PRESS SAVE TO KEEP CHANGES” appears. If you proceed to exit without saving, the FNB connection you selected will not be implemented.

5.Use the arrow keys to highlight RETURN and press theReturn key.
