THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.

THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequencyenergy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required to correct the interference at their own expense.

The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequencyenergy. If it is not installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.

Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television communications at your own expense.

You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:

Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.

Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.

Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.

Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)

Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Cisco is committed to delivering secure products. We test our products internally before we release them, and we strive to correct all vulnerabilities quickly. If you think that you might have identified a vulnerability in a Cisco product, contact PSIRT:

Emergencies — security-alert@cisco.com

An emergency is either a condition in which a system is under active attack or a condition for which a severe and urgent security vulnerability should be reported. All other conditions are considered nonemergencies.

Nonemergencies — psirt@cisco.com

In an emergency, you can also reach PSIRT by telephone:

1 877 228-7302

1 408 525-6532

Tip We encourage you to use Pretty Good Privacy (PGP) or a compatible product to encrypt any sensitive information that you send to Cisco. PSIRT can work from encrypted information that is compatible with PGP versions 2.x through 8.x.

Never use a revoked or an expired encryption key. The correct public key to use in your correspondence with PSIRT is the one linked in the Contact Summary section of the Security Vulnerability Policy page at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/products_security_vulnerability_policy.ht ml

The link on this page has the current PGP key ID in use.

Cisco Technical Support & Documentation Website

The Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website provides online documents and tools for troubleshooting and resolving technical issues with Cisco products and technologies. The website is available 24 hours a day, at this URL:

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport

Access to all tools on the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website requires a Cisco.com user ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a user ID or password, you can register at this URL:

http://tools.cisco.com/RPF/register/register.do

Note Use the Cisco Product Identification (CPI) tool to locate your product serial number before submitting a web or phone request for service. You can access the CPI tool from the Cisco Technical Support & Documentation website by clicking theTools & Resources link under Documentation & Tools. ChooseCisco Product Identification Tool from the Alphabetical Indexdrop-downlist, or click theCisco Product Identification Tool link under Alerts & RMAs. The CPI tool offers three search options: by product ID or model name; by tree view; or for certain products, by copying and pastingshow command output. Search results show an illustration of your product with the serial number label location highlighted. Locate the serial number label on your product and record the information before placing a service call.

Submitting a Service Request

Using the online TAC Service Request Tool is the fastest way to open S3 and S4 service requests. (S3 and S4 service requests are those in which your network is minimally impaired or for which you require product information.) After you describe your situation, the TAC Service Request Tool provides recommended

http://www.cisco.com/techsupport/servicerequest

For S1 or S2 service requests or if you do not have Internet access, contact the Cisco TAC by telephone. (S1 or S2 service requests are those in which your production network is down or severely degraded.) Cisco engineers are assigned immediately to S1 and S2 service requests to help keep your business operations running smoothly.

To open a service request by telephone, use one of the following numbers:

Asia-Pacific:+61 2 8446 7411 (Australia: 1 800 805 227)

EMEA: +32 2 704 55 55

USA: 1 800 553-2447

Definitions of Service Request Severity

To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity definitions.

Severity 1 (S1)—Yournetwork is “down,” or there is a critical impact to your business operations. You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.

Severity 2 (S2)—Operationof an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your business operation are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and Cisco will commitfull-timeresources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.

Severity 3 (S3)—Operationalperformance of your network is impaired, but most business operations remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service to satisfactory levels.

Severity 4 (S4)—Yourequire information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

Gigabit Ethernet Uplink Ports

The Gigabit Ethernet uplink ports operate in full-duplexmode only. GBICs have SC connectors to interface with multimode fiber (MMF) andsingle-modefiber (SMF) cable. For more information about GBICs, refer to theCatalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide.

When two Supervisor Engine Vs are present in a Catalyst 4507R and Catalyst 4510R, all four uplinks are active on both Primary (active) and Secondary (standby) supervisor engines by default, or two uplinks will be active in a nonredundant configuration. This limits access to slot 10 on the Catalyst 4510R to ports 3 and 4 only. You can only use the 2-portGigabit Ethernet switching module(WS-X4302-GB)or the Access Gateway Module(WS-X4604-GWY)in slot 10(flex-slot),when a Supervisor Engine V is used.

10-GigabitEthernet Uplink Ports

The 10-GigabitEthernet uplink ports operate infull-duplexmode only, and are only on theWS-X4516-10GEandWS-X4013+10GE.These ports use thehot-swappable10GBASE X2 optical transceivers. The X2s have SC connectors to interface with multimode fiber (MMF) andsingle-modefiber (SMF) cable.

On a Catalyst 4510R with a Supervisor Engine V-10GE,the user has the option to use either four Gigabit Ethernet uplinks using SFPs or two10-GigabitEthernet uplinks using X2s. The user also has the option of using the Gigabit Ethernet and10-GigabitEthernet uplinks simultaneously. With this option, the tenth slot can only support theWS-X4302-GBswitching module. On a Catalyst 4507R, the user can use the Gigabit Ethernet uplinks and10-GigabitEthernet uplinks simultaneously.

When two Supervisor Engine V-10GEsare present in a Catalyst 4510R or Catalyst 4507R switch, or two Supervisor EngineII-Plus10GEs are present in a Catalyst 4507R, one X2 uplink is active on both the primary (active) and secondary (standby) supervisor engines by default, or two uplinks will be active in a nonredundant configuration.

SFP Ports

Gigabit Ethernet SFP ports operate in full-duplexmode only and are present on theWS-X4013+TS,WS-X4516-10GEandWS-X4013+10GEsupervisors, as well as some switching modules. These ports use the1000BASE-SX,1000BASE-LX,Cisco Coarse Wave Division Multiplexing (CWDM ) SFPs,1000BASE-TSFP, and1000BASE-ZXSFP. SFP connectors vary with interface type and may use multimode fiber (MMF),single-modefiber (SMF) cable, or copper Ethernet cables.

10/100BASE-TPort

The 10/100BASE-Tport supports emergency image recovery. The10/100BASE-Tport supports image downloads from the ROMMON. You can use this feature when the onboard Flash memory does not contain any IOS images, usually after all images were accidentally deleted from onboard Flash.

CONSOLE Port

The CONSOLE port has an EIA/TIA-232RJ-45connector. The CONSOLE port allows you to perform the following functions:

Configure the switch from the CLI

Monitor network statistics and errors

Configure SNMP agent parameters

Note EIA/TIA-232was known as recommended standardRS-232before its acceptance as a standard by the Electronic Industries Alliance (EIA) and Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).

RESET Button

The RESET button is used to restart the switch.

Fan Assembly

Note For complete environmental specifications, including airflow requirements, seeAppendix A, “Specifications.”

The system fan assembly provides cooling air for the internal chassis components. The fan assembly is a tray of fans that you can insert and remove from the chassis while the system is on line. The Catalyst 4503 fan assembly has two fans, the Catalyst 4506 fan assembly has four fans, the Catalyst 4507R fan assembly has six fans, and the Catalyst 4510R fan assembly has eight fans. The fans draw in fresh air from one side and exhaust air on the other side. Catalyst 4503 airflow is shown in Figure 1-13.Catalyst 4506 airflow is shown inFigure 1-14.

Catalyst 4507R airflow is shown in Figure 1-15.Catalyst 4510R airflow is shown inFigure 1-16.

Caution You must install module filler plates on unused switching module slots to ensure proper airflow.

Power Supplies

Note For detailed specifications on all Catalyst 4500 series power supplies, refer to the“Catalyst 4500 Series Power Supplies” section on page A-7.

A Catalyst 4500 series switch can use a 1000 W, 1300 W, 1400 W, 2800 W (see Figure 1-17),or 4200 W (with two inputs, seeFigure 1-18)AC-inputpower supply , a 1400 WDC-inputpower supply with integrated PEM (seeFigure 1-19),or a 1400 W DCmultiple-inputpower supply (seeFigure 1-20).

The AC-inputpower supply has a power cord that connects each power supply to the site power source. TheDC-inputpower supply is equipped with a input terminal block that is directly connected to the site power wiring.

Each power supply has an ON/OFF switch that supplies power to the switch. For information on removing and replacing power supplies, see the “Removing and Replacing the Power Supply” section on page 4-2.

Note The 1400 W DCtriple-inputpower supply is not compatible with other power supplies used on these products, and can only be used with similar supplies. In redundant mode, the two power supplies must have identical inputs.

The 1400 W DC input power supply (either single or triple-input)may be used with the Catalyst 4500 Series AC Power Shelf. Documentation for the Catalyst 4500 Series AC Power Shelf is athttp://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc /product/lan/cat4000/inst_nts/78_15068.htm

Catalyst 4500 series switches support one power supply and an optional redundant power supply. Each AC power supply has an individual power cord and status LEDs. Systems with redundant power supplies will share the load, with each unit providing approximately one-halfof the total load. For information about configuring your switch for redundant and combined modes, refer to the software configuration guide for your switch.

The Catalyst 4510R requires at least 1400 W of input power. (The 1000 W AC and 1300 W AC power supplies for the Catalyst 4500 series will fit and function in a Catalyst 4510R; however, power management may be required in high density configurations.) Cisco recommends the use of the 1400 W DC, 1400 W AC, and 2800 W AC power supplies for the Catalyst 4510R.

When power is removed from one power supply on a Catalyst 4500 series switch that has two power supplies, the redundant power feature causes the second power supply to produce full power.

Chapter 1 Product Overview

Power Supplies

Power Supply Fan

Each power supply has a built-infan. Air enters the front of the power supply(power-inputend) and exits through the back. An air dam keeps the airflow separate from the rest of the chassis, which is cooled by the system fan assembly.

Load-SharingFeature

When you install and turn on a second power supply on a Catalyst 4500 series switch, it provides approximately one-halfof the required power to the system. If one power supply fails, the other power supply immediately assumes full power to maintain uninterrupted system operation.

Note Load sharing works only when both power supplies in the chassis are the same type.

When you install a redundant power supply, load sharing and fault tolerance are enabled automatically; no additional software configuration is required.

Environmental Monitoring Feature

With the environmental monitoring and reporting feature, you can keep your system running by resolving adverse environmental conditions before loss of operation.

The power supply monitors its own internal temperature and voltages. In the event of excessive internal temperature, the power supply shuts down to prevent damage. When the power supply returns to a safe operating temperature, it restarts. If the power supply output voltage is not within the specified range, the LED labeled OUTPUT FAIL will light. An instance of substantial output overvoltage can shut down the power supply.

An instance of substantial input overvoltage (greater than –75V DC continuous) can damage the power supply input circuitry and can cause it to shut down permanently.

Chapter 1 Product Overview

Power Supplies

For a 1400 W DC power supply, the main power switch has an input range of –40.5to–72V DC, while the–48V PoE operates over a range of–40.5to

–56V DC. The PoE either fails to start or shuts down if exposed to greater than–56V DC input. PoE recovers after you recycle input power within the proper voltage range. If the PoE shuts down due to input overvoltage (greater than–56V DC), the main converter section does not shut down.

The supervisor engine monitors the status of each power supply and provides a status report through the switch software. For more details on how the supervisor engine monitors the power supplies, refer to the “Environmental Monitoring and Power Management” chapter of the Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide.

1400 W DC Triple-inputPower Supply Operational Modes

The C4500 1400 W DC Triple Input SP Power Supply (data only) allows added redundancy by providing terminals for two DC inputs rated at 15 A and one rated at 12.5 A per power supply.

This power supply has five operational modes depending on the inputs receiving power. When all three inputs are active, at input voltages greater than –44.0V DC, the power supply delivers 1400 W maximum total output.Table 1-8 provides output information for these modes, given a single supply.

Power enters the switch through the power supplies. Several types of power supplies are available, depending on the power needs for your system and the power type available on your site. All power supplies provide a 3.3 V circuit (shown as a dash-dotline) to the components on the backplane and a 12 V circuit (shown as a solid line) that is carried over the backplane to the fans, supervisor engine, and switching modules. Power supplies that support PoE (1300 W AC,

2800 W AC, 4200 W AC or 1400 W DC) also provide a –48V circuit (shown as a dashed line) toPoE-enabledswitching modules, which is then available to the powered device connected to the switching module.

Note The Supervisor EngineII-PlusTS has internalDC-to-DCconverters that use the 12 V circuit to provide PoE to powered devices connected to the Supervisor engine only. If your system has a Supervisor EngineII-PlusTS in slot 1, you still need aPoE-enabledpower supply to provide PoE to the other slots.

All Catalyst 4500 series switches support dual power supplies, configurable as combined mode or redundant mode. In combined mode, the switch has available the combined rated wattage of both power supplies, less some expected efficiency loss. In redundant mode, one power supply provides power to the system and the other supply is on standby should there be a failure in either the power supply or the input voltage source it is connected to.

Power over Ethernet

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series switches support the Cisco pre-standardand 802.3af standard for PoE on 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports, enabling customers to support telephones, wireless base stations, video cameras, and other appliances. PoE makes it possible to place devices in unique locations without having to provide new outlets and costly electrical circuits. PoE also enables businesses to isolate critical devices on a single power system so that the entire system can be supported by uninterruptable power supply (UPS) backup.

All new Cisco Catalyst PoE line cards can support 15.4 W of power per port simultaneously. Not only do the cards support the IEEE standard, including the optional power classifications, but the Cisco pre-standardpower implementation is also supported to help ensure backward compatibility with existing Cisco powered devices. The cards are compatible with any chassis and supervisor engine. Most importantly, the Catalyst 4500 series switch has the power supplies and accessories to support 15.4 W per port on every port simultaneously in any fully loaded chassis. (This requires an external power shelf or a 4200 Wdual-inputpower supply.)

Chapter 1 Product Overview

System Architecture

PoE Over-subscription

With the advent of powered devices requiring as much as 15.4 W and the different combinations of power supplies and chassis port densities, it becomes quite possible to over-subscribethe PoE capacity of the power supplies. This temporaryover-subscriptiontypically occurs when a power supply configured in combined mode fails or when the user has not kept track of the powered devices and plugs in one too many. The best practice is to design a PoE system in which all devices receive the power needed at all times. When a power supply isover-subscribed—morepower is being drawn from it than it cansupply—thepower supply shuts down. There are several ways to predictably manage a temporary PoEover-subscription:

1.Configure unused ports to never receive PoE. This prevents a user from inadvertently plugging a powered device into a port and causing problems for other powered devices.

2.Configure ports to be in static mode. This is for ports that have highest priority, such as phones for executives or wireless access points. If ports need to be disabled because of a power shortage, auto ports are disabled before static ports.

3.Configure the maximum wattage on ports to be less than the default, based on the maximum power consumption of the powered device. This disallows devices demanding unexpected amounts of power and also stretches the finite resources of the power supplies. For example, the default port wattage is 15.4 W. By configuring a maximum of 7 W, twice as many PoE powered devices can be supported with the same power supply.

PoE Line Cards

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 series offers line cards, power supplies, and accessories required to deploy and operate a standards-basedPoE internetwork. PoE provides–48V DC power over standard Category 5 unshieldedtwisted-pair(UTP) cable up to 100 meters when an IEEE802.3af-compliantor Ciscopre-standardpowered device is attached to the PoE line card port. Instead of requiring wall power, attached devices such as IP phones, wireless base stations, video cameras, and otherIEEE-compliantappliances can use power provided by the PoE line cards. This capability gives network administrators centralized control over power and eliminates the need to install outlets in ceilings and otherout-of-the-wayplaces where a powered device may be installed.

Chapter 1 Product Overview

System Architecture

Although references to “PoE,” “inline-power,”and “voice” power supplies and line cards are synonymous, there are only two versions: Cisco prestandard and IEEE 802.3af compliant. Every Cisco Catalyst 4500 series chassis and PoE power supply supports the IEEE 802.3af standard and the Cisco prestandard power implementation ensuring backward compatibility with existing Cisco powered devices. All IEEE802.3af-compliantline cards can distinguish an IEEE or Cisco prestandard powered device from an unpowered network interface card (NIC), ensuring that power is applied only when an appropriate device is connected.

All PoE line cards can distinguish an IEEE or Cisco prestandard powered device from an unpowered network interface card (NIC) to ensure power is applied only when an appropriate device is connected. With a Cisco PoE network, administrators can depend on a robust network that is safe to deploy and simple to maintain.

Deploying PoE on the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series

When the switch is properly configured, implementing PoE is easy when it is used with a Cisco powered device that supports Cisco Discovery Protocol. All PoE line cards automatically detect an attached powered device the moment it is installed. Also, the switch returns unused port power to the system power budget for use by other devices because it supports the IEEE802.3af optional power classifications.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 series offers internal power supplies and external power devices for multiple deployment scenarios. These scenarios include small and large deployments in AC or DC environments for data-onlyconfigurations, and scalability of up to 15.4 W per port for PoE configurations.

The switches share a common power supply form factor. Each Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis is designed for 1 + 1 power protection while meeting the needs of PoE demands. In addition to power resiliency, the Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series includes 1 + 1 supervisor-engineredundancy (Cisco Catalyst 4507R and Catalyst 4510R only) andsoftware-basedfault tolerance. Integrated resiliency in both hardware and software minimizes network downtime, helping ensure workforce productivity, portability, and customer success.

All available Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series power supplies can be used for data-onlydeployments, which typically require just a few hundred watts. For deployments that dictate support for PoE power, Cisco offers several options.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series offers several internal supplies: 1000 W AC (data only), 1400 W AC (data only), 1300 W (data and PoE), 1400 W DC (data and PoE), 2800 W (data and PoE), and 4200 W AC (data and PoE). When more than

System Architecture

4200 W of redundant data and PoE are required for a Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series chassis in an AC-poweredenvironment, Cisco offers an external AC power shelf that houses two 2500 W AC power supplies. When two power shelves are combined, they can produce 7500W—theremaining 2500 W supply can be used for N + 1 protection.

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series has two DC power options; one is optimized for data-onlydeployments in service provider central offices (part numberPWR-C45-1400DC),and the other is used forhigh-powerPoE deployments (part numberPWR-C45-1400DC-P).

Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series External AC Power Shelf and

1400 W DC Power Supply with Integrated Power Entry Module

The external AC power shelf must be used in conjunction with the 1400 W DC power supply. In addition to providing power for the chassis, fans, and non-PoEline cards, the 1400 W DC power supply contains a power entry module (PEM). The PEM is used to pass additional power to the chassis backplane, power demanded by the PoE line cards. The chassis power trace used for PoE is independent from the one used by the supervisor engine(s), fan tray, and backplane components. The 1400 W DC power supply can accept up to

7500 W DC for data and PoE applications. Up to 1400 W can be dedicated for data (supervisor engine, fan tray, etc.), while the remaining power is passed through via the PEM and is used for PoE.

When only one external AC power shelf is used (with two 2500 W AC power supplies), it provides the 1400 W DC power supply with 5000 W of DC power in total. When two AC power shelves are strapped together, the switch can provide up to 7500 W of DC power (3 + 1 redundant).

Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series Service Provider DC Power Supply

The triple-input1400 W DC power supply is optimized for service provider orcentral-officedeployments. By providing multiple inputs, the service provider DC power supply enablescentral-officetechnicians to customize the output power to meet their application needs. Manycentral-officedeployments require only a fraction of the 1400 W available in the service provider power supply. Low current inputs mean technicians can connect the supply to smaller fuses and breakers. The service provider power supply makes it possible to deploy a Cisco Catalyst 4503

Each system component has an EEPROM that identifies it to the supervisor engine over a serial connection on the backplane, which also passes along information like temperature, fan speed, power draw per slot and port, and port activity. LED status information is also sent to the supervisor engine, which makes it available to an administrator through a terminal connection or management software.

Frames flow into the switch through interfaces on the switching modules. Each switching module connects to a mux/buffer on the backplane that supports a connection of up to 6 Gbps up (Tx) to the supervisor engine and 6 Gbps from (Rx) the supervisor engine. When a frame reaches the supervisor engine, it is examined and either sent out of an interface in one of the other slots, or out of the uplink on the supervisor engine.

Over-subscription

Switching modules that have 24 or 48 Gigabit Ethernet (1000BASE-T)portsover-subscribeon a Catalyst 4500 switch by grouping the ports with an additional mux/buffer on the switching module, which creates a single, nonblocking,full-duplexGigabit Ethernet connection to the internal switch fabric. For each group of ports, frames received are buffered and sent to the common Gigabit

Chapter 1 Product Overview

System Architecture

Ethernet link to the internal switch fabric. If the amount of data received for a port begins to exceed buffer capacity, flow control sends pause frames to the remote port to temporarily stop traffic and prevent frame loss.

Each port in the group shares the bandwidth of a Gigabit Ethernet link. However, each port operates independently so that flow control, or configuration of one port, does not block or degrade the performance of another port in that group. Switching modules that have up to six 1000BASE-Tports do not useover-subscription.

The amount of over-subscriptioncan be controlled by varying the number of ports used at 1000 Mbps. All ports can use Cisco Gigabit EtherChannel technology or IEEE 802.3ad forhigh-speedinterconnection applications. Allover-subscribedports use the standard IEEE 802.1x flow control (PAUSE frame) mechanism to control Gigabit Ethernet host traffic.

Supervisor Redundancy

The Cisco Catalyst 4507R and Catalyst 4510R switches support 1+1 supervisor-engineredundancy for integrated resiliency. Redundant supervisor engines help minimize network downtime. With the support of stateful switchover (SSO), the secondary supervisor engine serves as a backup to immediately take over after a primary supervisor failure. During the switchover, Layer 2 links are maintained transparently without the need to renegotiate sessions. As a result,business-criticalapplications such asVoice-over-IP(VoIP) calls are not dropped. The Nonstop Forwarding (NSF) Aware feature in Cisco IOS software is also supported, providing the ability to interface withNSF-capabledevices and to continue forwarding packets as routing information is updated upon asupervisor-engineswitchover.

Electrostatic Discharge

If you will be using your switch as a PoE source, the following warning applies:

Warning Voltages that present a shock hazard can exist on inline power circuits if interconnections are made by using uninsulated exposed metal contacts, conductors, or terminals. Avoid using such interconnection methods unless the exposed metal parts are in a restricted access location and users and service people who are authorized to access the location are made aware of the hazard. A restricted access area can be accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security.Statement 1072

This chapter describes how to prepare your site for the installation of the switch. The information is presented in these sections:

Electrostatic Discharge, page 2-2

Site Power Requirements and Heat Dissipation, page 2-4

Power Connection Guidelines for AC-Powered Systems, page 2-5

Site-Planning Checklist, page 2-16

Note See theSite-Planning Checklist at the end of this chapter to help ensure that you complete allsite-planningactivities before you install the switch.

Electrostatic Discharge

Electrostatic discharge is common on Category 5E and Category 6 cabling systems.

Category 5E and Category 6 cables have higher capacitance than Category 5 cables. As a result, Category 5E and Category 6 cables can store higher voltages than Category 5 cables and are more prone to damaging networking equipment if a differential discharge event occur.

Unshielded twisted-paircables can store high voltages. When these charged cables are connected to networking equipment, energy is discharged into the networking equipment; this is known as electrostatic discharge (ESD).

Networking equipment is commonly designed and tested to withstand common mode ESD events of up to 2000 V. The design for the common mode event is based on the expectation that the discharge is delivered to all pins of a port at once.

 

Catalyst 4500 Series Switches Installation Guide

78-14409-08

Chapter 2 Preparing for Installation

Electrostatic Discharge

Sometimes, voltage is discharged to some of the pins of the connector and not others, or to some pins on the connector before others. This is known as a differential discharge event, which can damage the networking equipment being connected.

You can take the following measures to prevent ESD cable damage:

Ground the cable before connecting the networking equipment. You can create a grounding cable using an RJ-45patch cable by doing the following:

Bare the wires on one end

Connect the wires to a suitable and safe earth ground

Connect the RJ-45cable to a femaleRJ-45connector

Briefly connect all cables to the grounded cable before connecting to networking equipment.

Leave cables from the networking equipment in the distribution closet connected to ports at user desktops. After you make connections on either side of the cable to networking equipment, the cable will not build up charge.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures. Port adapters and processor modules consist of printed circuit boards that are fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to protect the board from ESD, use a preventive antistatic strap during handling.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.

Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.

When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws toproperly seat the bus connectors in the backplane or midplane. These devices prevent accidentalremoval, provide proper grounding for the system, and help to ensure that bus connectors areproperly seated.

Chapter 2 Preparing for Installation

Site Power Requirements and Heat Dissipation

When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.

Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or connectors.

Place a removed component board-side-upon an antistatic surface or in a static shielding container. If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static shielding container.

Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.

Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.

Caution For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).

Site Power Requirements and Heat Dissipation

This section provides module power requirements and heat dissipation specifications for the Catalyst 4500 series switches. You should verify site power before you install the switch.

For more information about power management and planning, refer to the “Environmental Monitoring and Power Management” chapter in the Catalyst 4500 Series Switch Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide version appropriate for your software.

Knowing the power requirements is useful for planning the power distribution system needed to support the switches. You should consider the heat dissipation specifications when estimating the air-conditioningrequirements for an installation. For all Catalyst 4500 series switches, supervisor engines, and switching modules in AC or DC environments see theCatalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide at:http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat4000/hw_doc/mod_inst /0aspecs.htm#wp1012188.

This section provides guidelines for connecting the Catalyst 4500 series switch AC power supplies to the site power source. Basic guidelines include the following:

Make sure each chassis power supply has its own dedicated branch circuit.

Size the circuits according to local and national codes.

If you are using a 200/240 VAC power source in North America, use a two-polecircuit breaker to protect the circuit.

Place the source AC outlet within 6 feet (1.8 meters) of the system and make sure it is easily accessible.

Make sure the AC power receptacles used to plug in the chassis are the grounding type. The grounding conductors that connect to the receptacles should connect to protective earth ground at the service equipment.

Four types of AC-inputpower supplies are available:

1000 W—Table 2-1 lists theAC-inputpower cord options, specifications, Cisco part numbers, and shows the different styles of 1000 WAC-inputpower cord wall plugs that are available for North America and international locations as well as the appliance coupler that is attached to the power supply end of the power cord.

1300 W—Table 2-1 lists theAC-inputpower cord options, specifications, and Cisco product numbers, and shows the different styles of 1300 WAC-inputpower cord wall plugs that are available for North America or various international locations as well as the appliance coupler that is attached to the power supply end of the power cord.

Note For North America, the power cord plug types and appliance couplers on the power supplies are different for the 1000 W power supplies and the 1300 W power supplies; for other countries, the plugs shown are the same for the 1000 W and 1300 W power supplies.

Power Connection Guidelines for DC-PoweredSystems

Power Connection Guidelines for DC-PoweredSystems

This section provides the basic guidelines for connecting the Catalyst 4500 series switch DC-inputpower supplies to the site power source or AC power shelf:

All power connection wiring should conform to local and national codes.

DC (–)and DC return (+) terminals are evaluated for use with 1/0 AWG wire (1400W DC supply only).

The ground terminal is evaluated for use with 6 AWG wire (10 AWG for the multi-inputpower supply).

DC (–)and DC return (+) wire lugs shall not exceed 0.83 inches in width (0.378 inches for themulti-inputpower supply).

For DC power cables, we recommend that you use commensurately rated, high-strand-countcopper wire cable. Connection to theDC-inputpower supply requires one earth ground cable, one source DC(–),and one source DC return (+). The length of the cables depends on your switch location. These cables are not available from Cisco Systems. They are available from any commercial cable vendor.

The color coding of the source DC power cable leads depends on the color coding of the site DC power source. Typically, green or green and yellow indicate that the cable is a ground cable. Because there is no color code standard for source DC wiring, you must ensure that the power cables are connected to the DC-inputpower supply terminal block in the proper (+) and

(–)polarity. In some cases, the source DC cable leads might have a positive

(+) or a negative (–)label. This label is a relatively safe indication of the polarity, but you must verify the polarity by measuring the voltage between the DC cable leads. When making the measurement, the positive (+) lead and the negative(–)lead must always match the (+) and(–)labels on theDC-inputpower supply terminal block.

Calculating DC Input Current

Complete power usage tables are in the Catalyst 4500 Series Module Installation Guide.To calculate the DC input current needed for data and inline power applications, use the following steps (the example shows the DC input current requirement in a Catalyst 4503 with a Supervisor Engine II and two WS-X4306-GB modules, and assumes a DC input voltage of -48 VDC):

Step 1 Add the power requirement for each component in your system.

Catalyst 4503 uses 54 W

Supervisor Engine II uses 147 W

WS-X4306-GBuses 2 X 47 = 94 W

Total DC input power = 295 W

Step 2 After the entries for all components have been added together, divide that number by the DC input voltage to determine the DC input current.

Input current = 295 W/48 VDC = 6.14 A for data only.

Step 3 to Step 5 are for applications requiring inline power. If your configuration does not include inline power devices, the DC input current is the result of Step 2.

Step 3 If you want to add aninline-capablemodule(WS-X4148-RJ45V)with 10 inline devices (such as IP Phones) to your system, calculate the DC output power sent to inline devices.

10 X 6.3 W = 63 W for inline devices.

6.3 Watts is correct for a Cisco IP phone. Wattage consumption will depend on the inline device used.

Step 4 Find the DC input power using the DC output power.

63/.96 (efficiency) = 65 W of DC input power.

Step 5 Divide the DC input power by the DC voltage input of–48V to find the DC input current used by inline devices.

65/48 = 1.4 Amps for inline devices.

Chapter 2 Preparing for Installation

Ventilation

Step 6 Add the DC input current used by data and the DC input current used by inline devices to find the total DC input current.

Total DC input current = 6.14 + 1.4 = 7.54 A.

Ventilation

Planning a proper location for the switch and the layout of your equipment rack or wiring closet is essential for successful system operation. You should install the switch in an enclosed, secure area, ensuring that only qualified personnel have access to the switch and control of the environment. Equipment placed too close together or inadequately ventilated can cause system overtemperature conditions. In addition, poor equipment placement can make chassis panels inaccessible and difficult to maintain.

The switch operates as a standalone system mounted in a rack in a secure wiring closet. It requires a dry, clean, well-ventilated,andair-conditionedenvironment. To ensure normal operation, maintain ambient airflow. If the airflow is blocked or restricted, or if the intake air is too warm, an overtemperature condition can occur. The switch environmental monitor can then shut down the system to protect the system components.

To ensure normal operation and avoid unnecessary maintenance, plan your site configuration and prepare your site before installation. After installation, make sure the site maintains an ambient temperature of 0 to 40ºC (32 to 104ºF). It is essential to keep the area around the chassis as free from dust and foreign conductive material (such as metal flakes from nearby construction activity) as is possible.

Multiple switches can be rack-mountedwith little or no clearance above and below the chassis. However, when mounting a switch in a rack with other equipment, or when placing it on the floor near other equipment, ensure that the exhaust from other equipment does not blow into the intake vent of the chassis.

Cooling air is drawn in through the right side of the chassis. Keep the right side clear of obstructions, including dust and foreign conductive material, and away from the exhaust ports of other equipment.

Chapter 2 Preparing for Installation

Ventilation

Appendix A, “Specifications,” lists the operating and nonoperating environmental site requirements for the switches. To maintain normal operation and ensure high system availability, maintain an ambient temperature and clean power at your site. The environmental ranges listed inAppendix A, “Specifications,” are those within which the switch will continue to operate; however, a measurement that approaches the minimum or maximum of a range indicates a potential problem. You can maintain normal operation by anticipating and correcting environmental anomalies before they exceed the maximum operating range.

Calculating System Heat Dissipation

To calculate the expected heat dissipation from a switch, add the total amount of power drawn from power supply by the system's configuration, then divide the total amount of power by the efficiency of the power supply. Multiply the result by 3.415 to get the system heat dissipation in BTUs/hr.

Note Although a class 3 device needs 15.4 W to power up, 17.3 W need to be generated from the backplane in order to have 15.4 W at the switch port. 17.3 W comes from theWS-X4248-RJ45VDC-DCconverter’s efficiency (89%).

When mounting this unit in a partially filled rack, load the rack from the bottom to the top with the heaviest component at the bottom of the rack.

If the rack is provided with stabilizing devices, install the stabilizers before mounting or servicing the unit in the rack. Statement 1006

Follow these steps to install a Catalyst 4500 series switch in a rack:

Step 1 Prepare for installation as follows:

a.Place the chassis on the floor or on a sturdy table as close as possible to the rack. Leave enough clearance to allow you to move around the chassis.

b.Use a tape measure to measure the depth of the rack. Measure from the outside of the front mounting posts to the outside of the rear mounting strip. The depth must be at least 19.25 inches (48.9 cm) but not greater than

32 inches (81.3 cm).

c.Measure the space between the inner edges of the left front and right front mounting posts to ensure that it is 17.75 inches (45.09 cm) wide. (The chassis is 17.25 inches [43.8 cm] wide and must fit between the mounting posts.)

d.Open the rack-mountkit and check the component checklist inTable 3-1 to verify that all parts are included.

Note Some equipment racks provide a power strip along the length of one of the rear posts. If your rack has this feature, consider the position of the strip when planning fastener points. Before installing the L brackets on the chassis, determine whether to install the chassis from the front or the rear of the rack.

Step 2 Install the L brackets, which connect the chassis to the rack, as follows:

a.Remove the screws from the front of the switch side-coverpanels.

b.Attach the left and right L brackets using the six M4 Phillips pan-headscrews (three screws per side) provided in therack-mountkit.

See Figure 3-1 for the Catalyst 4503 switch,Figure 3-2 for the Catalyst 4506 switch, orFigure 3-3 for the Catalyst 4507R switch, orFigure 3-4 for the Catalyst 4510R switch.

Chapter 3 Installing the Switch in a Rack

System Ground Connection Guidelines

Ensure that the grounding lug and the attached wire will not interfere with other switch hardware or rack equipment.

Step 7 Tighten the screws to secure the grounding lug to the grounding pad.

Step 8 Repeat steps1 through3 to prepare the other end of the grounding wire and connect it to an appropriate grounding point at your site to ensure adequate earth ground for the switch.

Step 9 Connect the power supply cords.

The switch comes on when the cords are connected and the power supply on/off switch is on.

Note This equipment is suitable for connection tointra-buildingwiring only.

Note If you are using a DC power supply, the DC return connection to this system should remain isolated from the system frame and chassis(DC-I).

This completes the installation of the Catalyst 4500 series switches.

At this point you should use the RJ-45-to-RJ-45 rollover cable to connect the console port to a PC that runs terminal emulation software. Configure your terminal emulation program for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit. With this console connection, you can configure the switch as discussed in the software configuration guide appropriate for your switch’s software release, and monitor the software as the switch goes through its startup routine. The pinout for the console port is detailed in the module installation guide at: http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat4000/hw_doc/mod_inst /0aspecs.htm#wp1003732

Step 5 Connect theDC-inputwires to the power supply terminal block. The proper wiring sequence is ground to ground, positive to positive, and negative to negative (seeFigure 4-13 orFigure 4-14 depending on your installation).

The 1400W triple-inputpower supply has two grounding posts; use the one that is most convenient for your installation.

Warning When installing or replacing the unit, the ground connection must always be made first and disconnected last.Statement 1046

Step 6 Replace the terminal cover.

Step 7 Connect the other end of the power cords to aDC-powerinput source.

Caution In a system with multiple power supplies or a singletriple-inputpower supply, connect each power supply to a separate DC power source. In the event of a power source failure, if the second source is still available, it can maintain maximum overcurrent protection for each power connection.

Step 8 Verify power supply operation by checking the power supply’sfront-panelLEDs. You should see the following:

The LED labeled INPUT OK is green.

The LED labeled OUTPUT FAIL is not lit.

Step 9 Check the power supply and system status from the system console by entering theshow system command (Catalyst Operating System) or theshow power command (Cisco IOS). For more information on these commands, refer to the command reference publication for your switch and software.

Step 10 If the LEDs or theshow system command (Catalyst Operating System) or theshow power command (Cisco IOS) output indicate a power problem or other system problem, seeChapter 5, “Troubleshooting,” for more information.

Removing and Replacing the Chassis Fan Assembly

Removing the Fan Assembly

Warning When removing the fan tray, keep your hands and fingers away from the spinning fan blades. Let the fan blades completely stop before you remove the fan tray.Statement 258

Caution Never operate the system for an extended period if the fan assembly is removed or if it is not functioning properly. Anover-temperaturecondition can cause severe equipment damage.

Follow these steps to remove the existing chassis fan assembly:

Step 1 Loosen the two captive installation screws on the fan assembly by turning them counterclockwise.

Step 2 Grasp the fan assembly with both hands and pull it outward; gently move it side to side if necessary to unseat it from the backplane. Slide it out of the chassis and place it in a safe place.

Installing the Fan Assembly

Follow these steps to install the new fan assembly:

Step 1 Hold the fan assembly with the fans facing to the right.

Step 2 Place the fan assembly into the fan assembly bay so it rests on the chassis, and then lift the fan assembly up slightly, aligning the top and bottom guides.

Step 3 Slide the fan assembly into the chassis until the two captive installation screws make contact with the chassis.

Step 4 Using a screwdriver, tighten the two captive installation screws by turning them clockwise.

Chapter 4 Removing and Replacing FRUs

Replacing Backplane Modules on a Catalyst 4507R or 4510R Switch

Verifying the Installation

Note To check the operation of the fans, you need to power up the chassis.

Follow these steps to verify that the new fan assembly was installed correctly:

Step 1 Listen for the fans; you should immediately hear them operating. If you do not hear them, ensure that the fan assembly is inserted completely in the chassis and that the faceplate is flush with the switch back panel.

Step 2 The fan tray LED should light and be green.

Step 3 If after several attempts the fans do not operate, or if you experience trouble with the installation (for instance, if the captive installation screws do not align with the chassis holes), contact the Cisco TAC for assistance.

Replacing Backplane Modules on a Catalyst 4507R or 4510R Switch

There are 5 redundancy modules (also called mux buffers) and 1 clock module on a Catalyst 4507R chassis backplane. A Catalyst 4510 has 8 redundancy modules on its backplane. They are accessible from the front if the switching modules and supervisor engines are removed. There are two types of redundancy modules, and they are interchangeable.

The clock module replacement procedure is identical to the redundancy module replacement procedure, the connectors are the same. These modules are not hot-swappable,the switch must be taken out of service to replace them.

To replace the backplane modules:

Step 1 Make sure you are grounded with an ESD strap.

Step 2 Turn off the power to the chassis.

Chapter 4 Removing and Replacing FRUs

Replacing Backplane Modules on a Catalyst 4507R or 4510R Switch

Verify the New Modules

After the switch is reassembled and power is restored, connect a terminal to the supervisor engine and monitor the boot process. Look for the following messages (or any others), which may indicate a problem with the replaced modules:

00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT:Mux buffer(WS-X4K-MUX)3 is not present

00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT:Mux buffer(WS-X4K-MUX)4 is not present

00:00:20: %C4K_SUPERVISOR-2-MUXBUFFERNOTPRESENT:Mux buffer(WS-X4K-MUX)7 is not present

The above messages (either at startup or output from a show logging command) indicate that themux-bufferis not present in slots 3, 4 and 7. You need to reinsert and reseat the modules in those slots.

If the switch has already started up, you may also verify the correct function of the new modules with the show logging command.

Troubleshooting

If your system has problems during start up or operation, use the information in this chapter to help isolate the cause. Problems with the initial startup are often caused by a switching module that has become dislodged from the backplane or a power cord that is disconnected from the power supply.

Although temperature conditions above the maximum acceptable level rarely occur at initial startup, some environmental monitoring functions are included in this chapter because they also monitor power supply output voltages.

Information about troubleshooting software features and configuration problems is not discussed in this chapter.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

System Boot Verification

Note This chapter covers only the chassis component hardware aspects of troubleshooting. For configuration issues, refer to the software configuration guide or command reference for your switch.

System Boot Verification

When the initial system boot is complete, verify the following:

That the power supplies are supplying power to the system

The LEDs should be green. Use the show environment Cisco IOS command to view power supply activity.

That the system fan assembly is operating

Listen for fan activity. The Fan tray LED should be green during operation.

That the system software boots successfully

Hook up a terminal and view the startup banner. Use an RJ-45-to-RJ-45rollover cable to connect the console port to a PC with terminal emulation software set for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit. Watch for any messages after startup.

That the supervisor engine and all switching modules are installed properly in their slots, and that each initialized without problems

If all of these conditions are met and the hardware installation is complete, refer to the software configuration guide and command reference publications for your switch so that you can troubleshoot the software.

If any of these conditions is not met, use the procedures in this chapter to isolate and, if possible, resolve the problem.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Problem Solving to the System Component Level

Problem Solving to the System Component Level

The key to success when troubleshooting the system is to isolate the problem to a specific system component. Your first step is to compare what the system is doing to what itshould be doing. Because a startup problem can usually be caused by a single component, it is more efficient to isolate the problem to a subsystem rather than troubleshoot each separate component in the system.

The switch consists of the following subsystems:

Power supply—Includesthe power supplies and power supply fans. If you suspect problems with the power supplies, see the“Troubleshooting the Power Supply” section on page 5-6.

Fan assembly—Thesystem fan assembly should be operating whenever system power is on. You should be able to hear the fan assembly when the system is operating. If you determine that the fan assembly is not operating, see the“Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly” section on page 5-8.

Supervisor engine—Thesupervisor engine contains the operating system software, so check the supervisor engine if you have trouble with the system software. Status LEDs on the supervisor engine indicate whether the supervisor engine has initialized correctly. If there is a problem with the supervisor engine, try reseating the supervisor engine in the chassis and restarting the switch. For more information about LED meanings, refer to the“LEDs” section on page 1-24.If the supervisor engine does not boot correctly after reseating and restarting, contact Cisco TAC. See the“Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center” section on page 5-16.

Switching modules—TheLEDs labeled STATUS on each switching module indicate whether the switching module has been initialized correctly. The supervisor engine must be operating properly before the switching module will initialize. If a switching module is improperly installed in the switch, it will not function, so if the supervisor engine is working but a switching module is not, try reseating the module. For more informations, see the“Troubleshooting Switching Modules” section on page 5-10.If you determine that the switching module is not operating, contact Cisco TAC as described in the“Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center” section on page 5-16.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Using LEDs to Identify Startup Problems

Using LEDs to Identify Startup Problems

All system states in the startup sequence are indicated using LEDs. By checking the LEDs, you can determine when and where the system failed in the startup sequence. If you have problems after the switch is on, refer to the configuration procedures in the software configuration guide for your switch.

After you connect the power cords to your Catalyst 4500 series switch, follow these steps to determine whether your system is operating properly:

Step 1 Check the power supply LEDs:

The LED labeled GOOD should turn green when power is applied to the supply. The LED should remain on during normal system operation.

If the LED labeled GOOD does not light, or if the LED labeled FAIL lights, see the “Troubleshooting the Power Supply” section on page 5-6.

Note If a power supply is installed and not connected to a power source, power supply LEDs will indicate a failure.

Step 2 Listen for the system fan assembly. If you do not immediately hear it begin to operate, see the“Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly” section on page 5-8.

Step 3 Check that the LEDs on the supervisor engine light as follows:

The LED labeled STATUS flashes orange once and stays orange during diagnostic boot tests.

It turns green when the module is operational (online).

If the system software is unable to start up, this LED stays orange.

If the LED labeled STATUS on the supervisor engine front panel is red or orange, connect a console to the management port and use the show environment command to check for possible problems. For more information, see the“Troubleshooting Supervisor Engines” section on page 5-13.

The Ethernet management port LED turns green when the module is operational (online) and a link is established with another network device. If no signal is detected, the LED labeled LINK turns off.

78-14409-08

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Using LEDs to Identify Startup Problems

Step 4 Verify that the LEDs labeled STATUS on each switching module are green when the supervisor engine completes initialization.

This LED indicates that the supervisor engine and switching modules are receiving power, have been recognized by the supervisor engine, and contain a valid Flash code version. However, this LED does not indicate the state of the individual interfaces on the switching modules. If an LED labeled STATUS is red or orange, try reseating the switching module or supervisor engine and restarting the switch. If the problem persists, contact Cisco TAC. See the “Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center” section on page 5-16.

Step 5 If the boot information and system banner are not displayed, verify that the terminal is set for 9600 baud, 8 data bits, no parity, and 1 stop bit and connected properly to the console port.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting the Power Supply

Troubleshooting the Power Supply

To help isolate a power subsystem problem, follow these steps:

Step 1 Check whether the power supply LED labeled GOOD is on or the LED labeled FAIL is on. (on the DCmulti-inputpower supply, the LEDs are labeled INPUT 1, 2, or 3 or OUTPUT FAIL.)

Step 2 If the LED labeled GOOD is off or if the LED labeled FAIL is on, take the following steps:

Ensure that the power supply is flush with the back of the chassis.

Unplug the power cord, loosen and reinstall the power supply, tighten the captive installation screws, and then plug in the power cord.

Step 3 If the LED labeled GOOD remains off, there might be a problem with the AC source or the power cable. Connect the power cord to another power source if one is available.

Step 4 If the LED labeled GOOD fails to light after you connect the power supply to a new power source, replace the power cord.

Note If this unit has more than one power cord, repeatStep 1 throughStep 4 for each power input.

Step 5 If the LED labeled GOOD still fails to light when the switch is connected to a different power source with a new power cord, the power supply is probably faulty. Replace the power supply.

Step 6 If the LED labeled FAN OK fails to light when the switch is connected to a power source with a known good power cord, there is a malfunction in the fan that cools the power supply. Replace the power supply.

Step 7 If a second power supply is available, install it in the second power supply bay.

Step 8 Check that the LED labeled GOOD is on for the additional power supply. Check that the LED labeled FAIL is off.

Step 9 If the LEDs are not on, repeat the previous procedure to troubleshoot the second power supply.

Troubleshooting the Power Supply

If you are unable to resolve the problem, or if you determine that either a power supply or backplane connector is faulty, contact the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) for instructions.

Troubleshooting Power Problems using Cisco IOS

Check for system messages related to the power supply, and refer to the system message guide for your software release. You may need to add a power supply or upgrade to a larger one for your current configuration or verify that the switches are set properly. Connect a terminal to the console port, and look for any of the following system messages:

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly

The 1400 W DC multi-inputsupply can not be used with other power supply types, but other power supplies in this product line work with the other types during an upgrade. If you mix power supplies in a Catalyst 4500 series chassis, the switch detects the type of power supply in power supply bay 1 (PS1) and ignores the power supply in power supply bay 2 (PS2) while issuing system messages and showing the power supply in bay 2 as in theerr-disablestate in the output of theshow power command. When the power supply in bay 1 is removed, the switch recognizes the power supply in bay 2, and you may then put a new matching power supply in bay 1. Both supplies should now resume normal function.

Troubleshooting the Fan Assembly

Note All fans must be operating or a failure will occur.

Environmental problems may initially appear to be problems with the fan tray. To help isolate a fan assembly problem, follow these steps:

Step 1 Check the status LED on the fan tray.

If the LED is off and the rest of the system is functioning, the fan tray is not getting power or is not seated correctly on the backplane.

If the LED is green, the fans are operating normally. There may be conditions impairing fan performance, but they are minimal in impact.

If the LED is red, one or more fans have failed.

Step 2 Connect a terminal and determine the fan tray status shown by theshow environment status CLI command.

Step 3 Look for system messages reporting a temperature problem or problem with the fans. Individual messages may suggest different solutions. Connect a terminal to the console port, and look for any of the following system messages:

C4K_CHASSIS-2-INSUFFICIENTFANSDETECTED

C4K_CHASSIS-2-INSUFFICIENTFANSSHUTDOWN

Step 4 Determine whether the airflow is restricted or if the ambient temperature in the room is too warm.

Step 5 Determine whether the power supply is functioning properly. See the“Troubleshooting the Power Supply” section on page 5-6.

Step 6 Verify that the fan assembly is properly seated in the backplane by loosening the captive installation screws, removing the fan assembly, and reinstalling it.

Step 7 Restart the system.

Step 8 Verify that all fans are operating. You should hear the fans at system start.

Step 9 If the system is still detecting a fan assembly failure, contact the Cisco TAC for assistance.

Troubleshooting Backplane Modules

The Cisco Catalyst 4500 Series redundancy scheme uses removable redundancy modules (also called mux-buffers),on the passive backplane to switch traffic to the active supervisor engine. There is one redundancy module per switching module. Redundancy modules and a redundant clock ship standard with every Cisco Catalyst 4507R and 4510R chassis. Spare redundancy modules(C4K-MUX=)and a clock module(C4K-CLOCK=)are available for serviceability.

The following conditions indicate that you may need to replace the redundancy modules and clock module:

Troubleshooting Switching Modules

The switch powers down and stays down for a few minutes to a few days for no clear reason.

The output-failLED on the power supplies are red and no power is delivered to the chassis. The other LEDs on the power supply are green.

The Status LEDs on the switching modules and the supervisor engine are flashing green.

CPU Utilization LEDs are flashing green or off.

If you observe these conditions, contact the Cisco TAC for assistance in ordering replacement redundancy modules and a clock.

Troubleshooting Switching Modules

Each switching module has one LED labeled STATUS that provides information about the module and one numbered LED labeled LINK for each port on the module. Figure 5-1 shows the Gigabit Ethernet port and status LEDs.Figure 5-2 shows the10/100BASE-Tport LEDs.Table 5-1 describes the switching module LEDs and their expected behavior.

These system messages indicate a problem with the supervisor engine. Some problems will prevent a console connection and will not allow you to use messages in diagnosing a problem. If you are unable to establish a terminal connection and the STATUS LED is red, contact Cisco TAC immediately to order a replacement.

Problems with redundant supervisor systems are often due to mismatched active and standby supervisor engines. Redundancy requires that both supervisor engines be the same model and running the same Cisco IOS release. If one supervisor has a NetFlow service card, the other must as well.

Some problems with supervisor engines are due to backplane connections that are not fully seated. If removing and reinserting the supervisor engine and then restarting the switch does not solve the problem, call Cisco TAC and replace the supervisor engine.

Chapter 5 Troubleshooting

Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center

Some problems can be solved by resetting the supervisor engine. Use the hw-module module <n> reset power-cycle command to reset a switching module, or remove andre-insertthe switching module, which resets, restarts and power cycles the switching module. Pressing the reset button on the supervisor engine causes the software to reload, but does not power cycle the supervisor engine.

Note When youpower-cycleor remove a supervisor engine in a redundant system the other supervisor engine becomes the active supervisor and the ports retain connectivity. In anon-redundantsystem, all of the switching modules lose connectivity until the supervisor engine is reinserted and completely restarted.

The show diagnostics power-on command may provide useful information for some supervisor engine problems.

Not all software versions support all supervisor engines. If you are having trouble with a supervisor engine, refer to the software release notes to be sure that it is supported by your software.

Contacting the Cisco Technical Assistance Center

If you are unable to solve a startup problem after using the troubleshooting suggestions in this chapter, contact a Cisco TAC representative for assistance and further instructions.
