1 Introduction

This guide provides instructions on how to install your Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP—hereafterreferred to as theswitch module—inthe HPc-ClassBladeSystem and to set up and configure your switch module. The HPc-ClassBladeSystem—hereafterreferred to as theblade server—supportsup to eight Ethernet switch modules, which are installed in the interconnect bays of the blade server.

This guide also covers management options and troubleshooting help for the switch module.

For details on the numbers, types, and the location of the blade server bays, for additional information on the blade server system, and for detailed port mapping information, see the HP BladeSystem enclosure installation poster or the HP BladeSystem enclosure setup and installation guide at http://www.hp.com/go/bladesystem/documentation.

For additional installation and configuration information about the switch module, see the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP documentation on Cisco.com. For system requirements, important notes, limitations, open and resolved caveats, and last-minutedocumentation updates about the switch module, see the release notes, also on Cisco.com.

When using the online publications, refer to the documents that match the Cisco IOS software version that is running on the switch module. See the “Obtaining Documentation” section on page 1-24for more information about the switch module publications.

For translations of the warnings that appear in this publication and all safety and handling warnings for this product, see the Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP that accompanies this guide.

Before proceeding, read the release notes for the blade server. The release notes are available on the HP support website at www.support.hp.com.

2 Taking Out What You Need

These items ship with your switch module:

Console cable

Regulatory Compliance and Safety Information for the Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP

Registration card

Follow these steps:

1.Unpack and remove the switch module and the accessory kit from the shipping box.

2.Return the packing material to the shipping container, and save it for future use.

If the switch modules are ordered with the blade server, the switch modules are already installed. The unpacking procedure for the switch module applies only if one is ordered separately. See the blade server documentation for the unpacking procedure for the HP equipment.

Cisco Gigabit Ethernet Switch Module Description

The Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3020 for HP is a 24 Gigabit Ethernet port, Layer 2+ switch module. Sixteen of the Gigabit Ethernet ports are internal 1000BASE-Xdownlink ports that connect to the blade server. The other eight Gigabit Ethernet ports are external uplink ports that provide connections to other switches or routers. Uplink ports operate at 10/100/1000 Mbps if used asRJ-45ports and operate at 1000 Mbps if smallform-factorpluggable (SFP)fiber-opticmodules are installed. SeeTable 1 for more detailed descriptions of the switch module ports.

Figure 1 shows the switch module.

The switch module is managed through the RS-232console port that uses anRJ-45connector in the switch modulefront-panel.

The blade server includes a chassis management module, the Onboard Administrator. Each switch module connects internally to the Onboard Administrator through 100BASE-TEthernet links. You can manage the switch modules through the Onboard Administrator on a management network that is isolated from other switch traffic. You can also manage the switch module through any of the external uplink ports.

Table 1 describes the switch module ports. Each external port has an associated LED.

Ports 1 to 16

Internal Gigabit Ethernet 1000BASE-Xdownlink ports.

 

 

Ports 17 to 20 and

Dual-purposeSFPmodule/RJ-45copper Ethernet uplink ports. The SFP

Ports 17x to 20x

module ports support only Cisco 1000BASE-SXfiber-opticmodules.

 

 

By default, the switch module dynamically selects the interface type that first

 

 

links up. SFP modules have precedence if both SFP module and copper Ethernet

 

 

interface types are in link-upstate. You can also specifically configure each port

 

 

for either copper Ethernet or SFP modules if you do not want to use

 

 

autodetection.

 

 

The copper Ethernet ports support automatic medium-dependentinterface

 

 

crossover (auto-MDIX)and autonegotiation.

 

 

For information about configuring speed and duplex settings for a

 

 

dual-purposeuplink port, see the switch module software configuration guide.

24x are in external operation mode, they support auto-MDIXand

 

 

autonegotiation. The default is external operation mode.

The switch module is powered from the blade server backplane, and temperature management is provided by the blade server. There is no fan on the switch module.
