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.

Product Overview

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series of multilayer modular fabric switches supports storage area network (SAN) applications. The Cisco MDS 9200 Series switches provide scalability, multitransport capability, security, and manageability to enterprise SANs. The Cisco MDS 9200 Series shares a consistent architecture with the Cisco MDS 9500 Series of multilayer directors, making it an intelligent and flexible fabric switch series. The Cisco MDS 9200 Series includes the Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch, the Cisco MDS 9216i Multilayer Fabric Switch, and the Cisco MDS 9216A Multilayer Fabric Switch.

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series provides the following features:

An interface module providing local and remote management interfaces for the supervisor module.

A spare slot for an optional hot-swappableswitching or services module.

Redundant and hot-swappablepower supplies and fan modules.

Power and cooling management and environmental monitoring.

Switch module port interfaces that support field-replaceable,hot-swappableX2 transceivers.

Switch module port interfaces that support field-replaceable,hot-swappablesmallform-factorpluggable (SFP) and Enhanced smallform-factorpluggable (SFP+) transceivers.

Nondisruptive code load and activation.

Redundant and self-monitoringsystem clocks.

The Cisco MDS 9222i Multiservice Modular Switch provides an 18-portFibre Channel switching and4-portGigabit Ethernet IP services module, and a modular expansion slot to host Cisco MDS 9000 Family Switching and Services modules.

The Cisco 9216i Switch includes a nonremovable supervisor module with an integrated 14-portFibre Channel and2-portGigabit Ethernet switching module. The integrated supervisor module supports IP services on the 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports. It also provides switching and local and remote management.

The Cisco 9216A Switch includes a nonremovable supervisor module with an integrated 16-portFibre Channel switching module. The integrated supervisor module provides switching and local and remote management.

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series enhances the Cisco MDS 9216 Switch with a flexible backplane that is designed to meet the requirements of future modules in the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, while maintaining backward compatibility with all existing modules. The Cisco MDS 9200 Series is also compatible with all existing Cisco MDS 9216 power supplies and fan trays, and provides a COM1 port interface that is compatible with a standard RJ-45toDB-9adapter.

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series supports one hot-swappableswitching or services module in addition to the integrated module that is part of the supervisor module.

The Fibre Channel switching modules provide system-widepower management and autonegotiation, which allows ports to negotiate for speed at the other end of the link. Each module has temperature sensors and an EEPROM that stores serial number and model number information.

The Fibre Channel port interfaces support hot-swappableFibre Channel SFP and SFP+ transceivers, which can be short wavelength (SWL) or long wavelength (LWL). The port interfaces also support coarsewavelength-divisionmultiplexing (CWDM) and densewavelength-divisionmultiplexing (DWDM) SFP transceivers, which can be used for extended long wavelength (ELWL) transmission or for coarsewavelength-divisionmultiplexing (CWDM) and densewavelength-divisionmultiplexing (DWDM). See the“Supported Transceivers” section on page 1-36.

32-Port2-GbpsFibre Channel Switching Module

The 32-port2-GbpsFibre Channel switching module can be used to allocate bandwidth optimally. The module is organized into eightfour-portgroups. Only the first port in eachfour-portgroup can be an ISL. If the first port is an ISL, the other three ports in the group are disabled. The four ports within a port group share a single internal channel resulting in a subscription ratio of approximately 3.2:1. The32-port2-Gbpsswitching module provides more ports at a lower price per port.Figure 1-14 shows a32-portswitching module.

Switching Modules

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

Switching Module Features

Each switching module draws its power from the 42 V supplied on the backplane with local DC/DC power converters and regulators.

The control processor on the switching module provides power-on,offline, and online diagnostics. The control processor can be used to configure devices on the switching module and to gather statistical data from each port.

The control processor can determine which slot it is plugged into, and it can monitor its DC/DC power source and temperature. The control processor signals the supervisor module and displays an alarm on its front panel when a problem is detected.

The front panel on the switching module provides basic status information, such as power-on,self-testrunning,self-testpassed, alarm, and ready.

The binary image for the switching module is downloaded from the supervisor module. Prior to the image download, the control processor on the switching module runs from code stored on its local CompactFlash card.

Note Routine software downloads are not required.

The integrated supervisor module can force a reset on the switching module and controls whether power is applied to the switching module.

If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this does not disable other switching modules if that is the only failure in the system.

Each switching module has a hardware watchdog timer to detect most component failures. The watchdog timer resets the card if it is not serviced periodically.

Each module draws power from the 42 V supplied on the backplane with local DC/DC power converters and regulators.

The control processor on the module provides power-on,offline, and online diagnostics. The control processor can be used to configure devices on the switching module and to gather statistical data from each port.

The control processor monitors the DC/DC power source and temperature. The control processor signals the supervisor module and displays an alarm on its front panel when it detects a problem.

The front panel on the services module provides basic status information, such as power-on,self-testrunning,self-testpassed, alarm, and ready.

The binary image for the services module is downloaded from the supervisor module. Prior to the image download, the control processor on the services module runs from the code stored on its local CompactFlash card. The image for an SSM can be specified using the SSI boot variable. For more information on how to specify the SSI boot variable, see the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide.

Note Software downloads are only necessary when a revision of the code is needed.

The supervisor module can force a reset on the services module and controls whether or not power is applied to the switching module.

If a single component or a set of components on the switching module fails, this failure does not disable another switching module if that is the only failure in the system.

For the detection of most component failures, each switching module has a hardware watchdog timer that resets the card if it is not serviced periodically.

Caching Services Module

The Caching Services Module (CSM) provides virtualization services that allow the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches to reallocate physical resources as virtual resources for increased efficiency. The CSM receives and sends data through the switch backplane. It has two disk drives, two internal batteries for backup in case of power failure, and no external ports.

CSMs must be implemented in pairs in the fabric to provide redundancy and backup. Only two or more CSMs in a fabric are supported. However, the CSMs need not to be installed in the same switch.

The CSM shuts down if the software failure or an external power failure occurs, or if the module is separated from the backplane while it is still powered on. The CSM automatically backs up the data in memory to the disk drives and then shuts down. The CSM batteries provide adequate power to back up data without external power.

Power Supplies

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series supports dual hot-swappable845-WAC power supplies, each of which can supply sufficient power to the entire chassis should one power supply fail. The power supplies monitor their output voltage and provide status to the supervisor module. To prevent the unexpected shutdown of an optional module, power management software only allows a module to power up if adequate power is available.

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series power supplies can be configured to be redundant or combined. By default, they are configured as redundant, so that if one fails, the remaining power supply can still power the entire system. For information on how to configure the power supplies, see the Cisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide or theCisco MDS 9000 Family Fabric Manager Configuration Guide.

The power supplies, which are accessed from the rear of the chassis, are illustrated in Figure 1-24.

Fan Module

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

Fan Module

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series supports a hot-swappablefan module with four fans. The fan module provides 80 cfm (cubic feet per minute) of cooling per slot, allowing 400 W of power dissipation per slot. Sensors on the supervisor module monitor the internal air temperature. If the air temperature exceeds a presetlower-levelthreshold, the environmental monitor displays warning messages. If the air temperature exceeds a presethigher-levelthreshold, the switch will shut down.

If one or more fans within the fan module fail, the Fan Status LED turns red and the module must be replaced. Individual fans cannot be replaced, you must replace the entire fan module. If the higher-leveltemperature threshold is not exceeded, the switch continues to run for five minutes after the fan module is removed. This means you can swap out a fan module without having to bring the system down. To replace a fan module, see the“Removing and Installing the Fan Module” section on page 2-38.The fan module has one Status LED that indicates the following conditions:

Green—Fanmodule is operating normally.

Red—Oneor more fans failed. Fan module should be replaced.

Off—Fanmodule is not properly seated in the chassis or power supply has failed.

Caution The Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches have internal temperature sensors that are capable of shutting down the system if the temperature at different points within the chassis exceed certain safety thresholds. To be effective, the temperature sensors require the presence of airflow; therefore, in the event a fan module is removed from the chassis, the Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches shut down after five minutes to prevent potentially undetectable overheating. However, the switches shut down sooner if thehigher-leveltemperature threshold is exceeded.

Supported Transceivers

The following types of transceivers are available from Cisco and are supported on the Cisco MDS 9200 Series:

X2 Fibre Channel transceivers

Fibre Channel SFP and SFP+ transceivers, in either SWL or LWL

Combination Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers, in either SWL or LWL

Combination Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet CWDM SFP transceivers, which can be used for ELWL transmission or for CWDM

Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceiver, 1-Gbpscopper

Fibre Channel DWDM SFP transceiver, which can be used for ELWL transmission or for DWDM

Note Switches running Cisco MDSSAN-OSRelease 2.x, 3.x, andNX-OS4.1(1b) support combination Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers.

The transceivers are field-replaceableandhot-swappable.You can use any combination of SFP transceivers that are supported by the switch. The only restrictions are that SWL transceivers must be paired with SWL transceivers, and LWL transceivers with LWL transceivers, and the cable must not exceed the stipulated cable length for reliable communications.

CWDM Combination Fibre Channel/Gigabit Ethernet SFP Transceivers

All Fibre Channel and Gigabit Ethernet ports in the Cisco MDS 9200 Series support 1-Gbps/2-GbpsCWDM SFP transceivers. In addition, the Fibre Channel ports on Cisco MDS 9222i also support4-GbpsCWDM SFP transceivers.

The Cisco CWDM SFP transceivers have LC connectors and support both Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel (1-Gbps/2-Gbps).They match the wavelength plan of Cisco CWDM GBICs and Cisco CWDM optical add/drop multiplexers (OADMs).

CWDM SFP transceivers can be used in two ways:

CWDM transmission can send and receive up to eight laser wavelengths carrying different signals simultaneously on the same optical fiber using an OADM.

ELWL signals can transmit over longer distances than LWL SFP transceivers.

There are eight different “colors” of CWDM SFP transceivers, one for each fixed wavelength. The fiber optic cables from the CWDM SFP transceivers must be connected to an OADM. The OADM combines the wavelengths of the different outgoing signals into one composite send signal. The OADM also separates the received transmissions into the different wavelengths and sends them to the corresponding CWDM SFP transceiver.

For more information on the CWDM SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP and SFP+ Transceiver Specifications” section on page B-10.

Gigabit Ethernet SFP Transceivers

The 4-portand8-portIP Storage services(IPS-4andIPS-8)modules provide four or eight1-GigabitEthernet ports that support Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers. The Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceivers haveRJ-45connectors and support Gigabit Ethernet(1-Gbps).

For more information on the Gigabit Ethernet SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP and SFP+ Transceiver Specifications” section on page B-10.

DWDM Fibre Channel SFP Transceivers

Fibre Channel ports on Cisco MDS 9222i support 2-GbpsDWDM SFP transceivers. The Cisco DWDM Fibre Channel SFP transceivers have LC connectors and support Fibre Channel(1-Gbps/2-Gbps).The DWDM SFP transceivers match the International Telecommunications Union (ITU)100-Ghzwavelength grid and the wavelength plan of Cisco100-GhzONS product family.

The DWDM SFP transceivers have the following capabilities:

DWDM transmission can send and receive up to 32 laser wavelengths carrying different signals simultaneously on the same optical fiber by using an optical filter.

ELWL signals can transmit over longer distances than LWL SFP transceivers.

For more information on the DWDM SFP transceiver specifications, see the “SFP and SFP+ Transceiver Specifications” section on page B-10.

Installation Guidelines

Follow these guidelines when installing the Cisco MDS 9200 Series:

Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis. Appendix D, “Site Planning and Maintenance Records,” lists the recommended site planning tasks.

Record the information listed in Appendix D, “Site Planning and Maintenance Records,” as you install and configure the switch.

Ensure that there is adequate space around the switch to allow for servicing the switch and for adequate airflow (Appendix B, “Technical Specifications,” lists airflow requirements).

Ensure that the air-conditioningmeets the heat dissipation requirements listed inAppendix B, “Technical Specifications.”

Ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the requirements listed in Appendix A, “Cabinet and Rack Installation.”

Note Jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-11.

Ensure that the chassis is adequately grounded. If the switch is not mounted in a grounded rack, Cisco recommends connecting both the system ground on the chassis and the power supply ground to an earth ground.

Ensure that the site power meets the power requirements listed in Appendix B, “Technical Specifications.” If available, you can use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect against power failures.

Caution Avoid UPS types that use ferroresonant technology. These UPS types can become unstable with systems like the Cisco MDS 9000 Family, which can have substantial current draw fluctuations because of fluctuating data traffic patterns.

Ensure that circuits are sized according to local and national codes. For North America, the 845-Wpower supply requires a15-Aor20-Acircuit.

If you are using a 200or 240-VACpower source in North America, the circuit must be protected by atwo-polecircuit breaker.

Caution To prevent loss of input power, ensure the total maximum loads on the circuits supplying power to the switch are within the current ratings for the wiring and breakers.

Use the following screw torques when installing the switch:

Captive screws: 4 in-lb

M3 screws: 4 in-lb

M4 screws: 12 in-lb

10-32screws: 20in-lb

12-24screws: 30in-lb

System Grounding

This section describes the need for system grounding and explains how to prevent damage from electrostatic discharge.

Proper Grounding Practices

Grounding is one of the most important parts of equipment installation. Proper grounding practices ensure that the buildings and the installed equipment within them have low-impedanceconnections andlow-voltagedifferentials between chassis. When you properly ground systems during installation, you reduce or prevent shock hazards, equipment damage due to transients, and data corruption.Table 2-2 lists some general grounding practice guidelines.

System Grounding

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

Note In all situations, grounding practices must comply with local National Electric Code (NEC) requirements or local laws and regulations.

Note Always ensure that all of the modules are completely installed and that the captive installation screws are fully tightened. In addition, ensure that all I/O cables and power cords are properly seated. These practices are normal installation practices and must be followed in all installations.

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage, which can occur when modules or other FRUs are improperly handled, results in intermittent or complete failures. 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, always use an ESD grounding strap when handling modules.

Follow these guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist strap and ensure that it makes maximum contact with bare skin. ESD grounding straps are available with banana plugs, metal spring clips, or alligator clips. All MDS 9200 series chassis are equipped with a banana plug connector (identified by the ground symbol next to the connector) somewhere on the front panel. Cisco recommends that you use a personal ESD grounding strap equipped with a banana plug.

If you choose to use the disposable ESD wrist strap supplied with most FRUs or an ESD wrist strap equipped with an alligator clip, you must attach the system ground lug to the chassis in order to provide a proper grounding point for the ESD wrist strap.

Note This system ground is also referred to as the network equipment building system (NEBS) ground.

If your chassis does not have the system ground attached, you must install the system ground lug. See “Establishing the System Ground” section on page 2-23 for installation instructions and location of the chassis system ground pads.

Note You do not need to attach a supplemental system ground wire to the system ground lug; the lug provides a direct path to the bare metal of the chassis.

After you install the system ground lug, follow these steps to correctly attach the ESD wrist strap:

Step 1 Attach the ESD wrist strap to bare skin as follows:

a.If you are using the ESD wrist strap supplied with the FRUs, open the wrist strap package and unwrap the ESD wrist strap. Place the black conductive loop over your wrist and tighten the strap so that it makes good contact with your bare skin.

b.If you are using an ESD wrist strap equipped with an alligator clip, open the package and remove the ESD wrist strap. Locate the end of the wrist strap that attaches to your body and secure it to your bare skin.

Step 2 Grasp the spring or alligator clip on the ESD wrist strap and momentarily touch the clip to a bare metal spot (unpainted surface) on the rack. Cisco recommends that you touch the clip to an unpainted rack rail so that anybuilt-upstatic charge is then safely dissipated to the entire rack.

Step 3 Attach either the spring clip or the alligator clip to the ground lug screw as follows (SeeFigure 2-16.):

a.If you are using the ESD wrist strap that is supplied with the FRUs, squeeze the spring clip jaws open, position the spring clip to one side of the system ground lug screw head, and slide the spring clip over the lug screw head so that the spring clip jaws close behind the lug screw head.

Note The spring clip jaws do not open wide enough to fit directly over the head of the lug screw or the lug barrel.

b.If you are using an ESD wrist strap that is equipped with an alligator clip, attach the alligator clip directly over the head of the system ground lug screw or to the system ground lug barrel.

In addition, follow these guidelines when handling modules:

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.

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).

Establishing the System Ground

This section describes how to connect a system ground to the MDS 9200 series switches.

Note This system ground is also referred to as the network equipment building system (NEBS) ground.

You must use the system (NEBS) ground on AC-poweredsystems if you are installing this equipment in a U.S. or European Central Office.

The system (NEBS) ground provides additional grounding for EMI shielding requirements and grounding for the low voltage supplies (DC-DCconverters) on the modules and is intended to satisfy the telcordia Technologies NEBS requirements for supplemental bonding and grounding connections. You must observe the following system grounding guidelines for your chassis:

You must install the system (NEBS) ground connection with any other rack or system power ground connections that you make. The system ground connection is required if this equipment is installed in a U.S. or European Central Office.

You must connect both the system (NEBS) ground connection and the power supply ground connection to an earth ground. The system (NEBS) ground connection is required if this equipment is installed in a U.S. or European Central Office.

You do not need to power down the chassis because the MDS 9200 series chassis are equipped with AC-inputpower supplies.

Required Tools and Equipment

To connect the ground system, you need the following tools and materials:

Grounding lug—Atwo holes standard barrel lug. Supports up to 6 AWG wire. Supplied as part of accessory kit.

Grounding screws—TwoM4 x 8mm (metric)pan-headscrews. Supplied as part of the accessory kit.

Grounding wire—Notsupplied as part of accessory kit. The grounding wire should be sized according to local and national installation requirements. Depending on the power supply and system, a 12 AWG to 6 AWG copper conductor is required for U.S. installations. Commercially available 6 AWG wire is recommended. The length of the grounding wire depends on the proximity of the switch to proper grounding facilities.

No. 1 Phillips screwdriver.

Starting Up the Switch

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

To attach the grounding lug and cable to the chassis, follow these steps:

Step 1 Use awire-strippingtool to remove approximately 0.75 in. (19 mm) of the covering from the end of the grounding cable.

Step 2 Insert the stripped end of the grounding cable into the open end of the grounding lug.

Step 3 Use the crimping tool to secure the grounding cable in the grounding lug.

Step 4 Remove the adhesive label from the grounding pad on the chassis.

Step 5 Place the grounding lug against the grounding pad so that there is solidmetal-to-metalcontact, and insert the two M4 screws with washers through the holes in the grounding lug and into the grounding pad.

Step 6 Ensure that the lug and cable do not interfere with other equipment.

Step 7 Prepare the other end of the grounding cable and connect it to an appropriate grounding point in your site to ensure adequate earth ground.

Starting Up the Switch

This section provides instructions for powering up the switch and verifying component installation.

Warning Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing.Statement 1034

Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. During this procedure, wear grounding wrist straps to avoid ESD damage to the switch.Statement 1029

Note Do not connect the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port to the LAN until the initial switch configuration has been performed. For instructions on configuring the switch, see theCisco MDS 9000 Family CLI Configuration Guide or theCisco MDS 9000 Family Fabric Manager Configuration Guide. For instructions on connecting to the console port, see the“Connecting to the Console Port” section on page 3-2.

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

To power up the switch and verify hardware operation, follow these steps:

Step 1 Verify that empty module slots have filler panels installed, the faceplates of all modules are flush with the front of the chassis, the ejector levers are fully closed and approximately parallel to the front of the module, and the captive screws of the power supplies, fan module, and all supervisor, switching, or services modules are tight.

Starting Up the Switch

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

Step 2 Verify that both power supplies and the fan module are installed.

Step 3 Verify that the power switches on both power supplies are off, and then plug the power cables into the power supplies and tighten the screws on the power cable retainers to ensure the cables cannot be pulled out.

Note Depending on the outlet receptacle on your power distribution unit, you may need the optional jumper power cord to connect the Cisco MDS 9200 Series to your outlet receptacle. See the“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-11.

Step 4 Connect the other end of the power cables to an AC power source.

Step 5 Ensure that the switch is adequately grounded as described in the“Installing the Switch in a Cabinet with Insufficient Front Clearance” section on page 2-11,and that the power cables are connected to outlets that have the required AC power voltages (see the“Weight of Modules” section on page B-3).

Step 6 Flip the power switches on the power supplies to the on (|) position. The switch boots automatically.

Step 7 Listen for the fans; they should begin operating when the switch is powered on.

Caution Do not operate the switch without a functioning fan module except for during the brief fan module replacement procedure. Cisco MDS 9000 Family switches can operate for only a few minutes without any functioning fan modules before they begin to overheat.

Step 8 After the switch boots, verify that the LED behavior is as follows:

Fan module: Status LED is green.

Power supplies:

Input Ok LED is green.

Fan Ok LED is green.

Output Fail LED is off.

Supervisor, switching, or services modules:

During initialization, the status LED on the module flashes orange once, remains orange during diagnostic boot tests, then turns green when the module is operational (online). If the system software is unable to start up, this LED remains orange or turns red.

After initialization, the status LED is green, indicating that all chassis environmental monitors are reporting that the system is operational. If this LED is orange or red, then one or more environmental monitor is reporting a problem.

The Link LEDs for the Ethernet port should not be on unless the cable is connected.

Note The link LEDs for the Fibre Channel ports remain yellow until the ports are enabled, and the LED for the MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port remains off until the port is connected.

Step 9 Try removing and reinstalling a component that is not operating correctly. If it still does not operate correctly, contact your customer service representative for a replacement.

Connecting the Cisco MDS 9200 Series

The Cisco MDS 9200 Series provides the following types of ports:

Console port (interface module)—AnRS-232port that you can use to create a local management connection.

COM1 port (interface module)—AnRS-232port that you can use to connect to an external serial communication device such as a modem.

MGMT 10/100 Ethernet port (interface module)—AnEthernet port that you can use to access and manage the switch by IP address, such as through the CLI or Cisco Fabric Manager.

Fibre Channel ports (supervisor and switching modules)—FibreChannel ports that you can use to connect to the SAN, or forin-bandmanagement.

Other port types provided by the optional module, if installed, such as the iSCSI and/or FCIP over Gigabit Ethernet ports on the 4-portor8-portIPS modules.

Caution When running power and data cables in overhead or subfloor cable trays, Cisco strongly recommends that power cables and other potential noise sources must be located as far away as practical from network cabling that terminates on Cisco equipment. In situations where long parallel cable runs cannot be separated by at least 3.3 ft (1 m), Cisco recommends shielding any potential noise sources by housing them in a grounded metallic conduit.

Preparing for Network Connections

When preparing your site for network connections to the Cisco MDS 9200 Series, consider the following for each type of interface, and gather all the required equipment before connecting the ports:

Cabling required for each interface type

Distance limitations for each signal type

Additional interface equipment required

Connecting to the Console Port

The console port (labeled Console) is an RS-232port with anRJ-45interface. (SeeFigure 3-1.)The console port is an asynchronous (async) serial port; any device connected to this port must be capable of asynchronous transmission.

Cisco recommends using this port to create a local management connection to set the IP address and other initial configuration settings before connecting the switch to the network for the first time.

Caution The console port can be used to connect to a modem, however, Cisco recommends using the COM1 port for this purpose. If you decide to connect the console port to a modem, do not connect it while the switch is booting; connect either before powering the switch on or after the switch has completed the boot process.

Maintaining SFP Transceivers and Fiber-OpticCables

SFP transceivers and fiber-opticcables must be kept clean anddust-freeto maintain high signal accuracy and prevent damage to the connectors. Attenuation (Loss of Light) is increased by contamination and should be below 0.35 dB.

Consider the following maintenance guidelines:

SFP transceivers are static sensitive. To prevent ESD damage, wear an ESD-preventivewrist strap that is connected to the chassis.

Do not remove and insert a transceiver more often than is necessary. Repeated removals and insertions can shorten its useful life.

Keep all optical connections covered when not in use. If they become dusty, clean before using to prevent dust from scratching the fiber-opticcable ends.

Do not touch ends of connectors to prevent fingerprints and other contamination.

Clean regularly; the required frequency of cleaning depends upon the environment. In addition, clean connectors if they are exposed to dust or accidentally touched. Both wet and dry cleaning techniques can be effective; refer to your site’s fiber-opticconnection cleaning procedure.

Inspect routinely for dust and damage. If damage is suspected, clean and then inspect fiber ends under a microscope to determine if damage has occurred.

Cabinet and Rack Installation

This appendix provides information on how to install cabinet and rack, and includes the following sections:

Cabinet and Rack Requirements, page A-1

Cisco MDS 9000 Family telco and EIA Shelf Bracket, page A-4

Cabinet and Rack Requirements

This section provides the Cisco MDS 9000 Family requirements for the following types of cabinets and racks, assuming an external ambient air temperature range of 0 to 104oF (0 to 40oC):

Standard perforated cabinets

Solid-walledcabinets with a roof fan tray (bottom to top cooling)

Standard open racks

telco racks

Note If you are selecting an enclosed cabinet, Cisco recommends one of the thermally validated types: standard perforated orsolid-walledwith a fan tray.

Note Do not use racks that have obstructions (such as power strips), because the obstructions could impair access tofield-replaceableunits (FRUs).

General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks

The cabinet or rack must be one of the following types:

Standard 19-in.(48.3 cm)(four-postEIA cabinet or rack, with mounting rails that conform to English universal hole spacing per section 1 ofANSI/EIA-310-D-1992.See the“Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets” section on page A-2 and the“Requirements Specific to Solid-Walled Cabinets” section on page A-3.

Cabinet and Rack Requirements

Se n d d o c u m e n t a t i o n c o m m e n t s t o m d s f e e d b a ck - d o c @ c i s c o . c o m

The cabinet or rack must also meet the following requirements:

The minimum vertical rack space per chassis must be three RU (rack units), equal to 5.25 in. (13.3 cm).

The width between the rack-mountingrails must be at least 17.75 in. (45.1 cm) if the rear of the switch is not attached to the rack. Forfour-postEIA racks, this is the distance between the two front rails.

For four-postEIA cabinets (perforated orsolid-walled):

The minimum spacing for the bend radius for fiber-opticcables should have the front mounting rails of the cabinet offset from the front door by a minimum of 3 in. (7.6 cm), and a minimum of 5 in. (12.7 cm) if cable management brackets are installed on the front of the chassis.

The distance between the outside face of the front mounting rail and the outside face of the back mounting rail should be 23.5 to 34.0 in. (59.7 to 86.4 cm) to allow for rear bracket installation.

A minimum of 2.5 in. (6.4 cm) of clear space should exist between the side edge of the chassis and the side wall of the cabinet. No sizeable flow obstructions should be immediately in the way of chassis air intake or exhaust vents.

Note Optional jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-11.

Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets

A perforated cabinet is defined here as a cabinet with perforated front and rear doors and solid side walls. In addition to the requirements listed in the “General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks” section on page A-1,perforated cabinets must meet the following requirements:

The front and rear doors must have at least a 60% open area perforation pattern, with at least 15 square inches of open area per rack unit of door height.

Cisco recommends that the roof be perforated with at least a 20 percent open area.

Cisco MDS 9000 Family telco and EIA Shelf Bracket

The optional telco and EIA Shelf Bracket Kit (part number DS-SHELF=)can temporarily or permanently support the Cisco MDS 9200 Series during installation. Once the frontrack-mountbrackets are securely attached to therack-mountingrails, the shelf bracket can be removed. This kit supports the following configurations:

A Cisco MDS 9200 Series in a two-posttelco rack

A Cisco MDS 9200 Series in a four-postEIA rack

This section describes the procedure for installing a Cisco MDS 9000 Family switch in a rack or cabinet using the optional telco and EIA Shelf Bracket Kit. It includes the following topics:

Rack-Mounting Guidelines, page A-4

Before Installing the Shelf Brackets, page A-5

Installing the Shelf Bracket Kit into a Two-Post telco Rack, page A-6

Installing the Shelf Bracket Kit into a Four-Post EIA Rack, page A-7

Removing the Shelf Bracket Kit (Optional), page A-9

Note This optional kit is not provided with the switch; to order the kit, contact your switch supplier.

Note For additional support after removing the shelf brackets, ensure that the C brackets on the Cisco MDS 9200 Series are attached to the rearrack-mountingrails.

Rack-MountingGuidelines

Caution If the rack is on wheels, ensure that the brakes are engaged or the rack is otherwise stabilized.

Caution If installing this kit in an EIA rack, attach the switch to all fourrack-mountingrails; the EIA rails might not be thick enough to prevent flexing of the shelf brackets if only two rails are used.

Before rack-mountingthe chassis, ensure that the cabinet or rack meets the following requirements:

The specifications listed in the “Cabinet and Rack Requirements” section on page A-1.

The depth of the rack between the front and rear mounting rails is at least 18 in.(45.7 cm) but less than or equal to 30 in. (76.2 cm). This is specific to four-postEIA cabinets or racks.

The airflow and cooling are adequate and there is sufficient clearance around the air vents on the switch, as described in Appendix B, “Technical Specifications.” This is particularly important to verify if you are installing the switch in an enclosed cabinet.
