Ports for the Cisco Nexus 3016 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3016 switch chassis includes the following ports:

40-GigabitEthernet uplink or downlink ports (16 ports)

100/1000 Ethernet management ports (2 ports)

Console port (1 port)

USB port (1 port)

The chassis has 16 40-GigabitEthernet ports that you can connect to hosts (uplink connections) or servers (downlink connections), which are often in the same rack or a nearby rack. Each of these ports uses a QSFP+ transceiver which is connected to one or four optical or copper cables. If one cable is used, it has a QSFP+ transceiver on the other end. If four cables are used, each of those cables has an SFP+ transceiver on the other end. The ports are numbered from left to right from 1 to 16 with theodd-numberedports on top and theeven-numberedports on the bottom.

Two 100/1000 Ethernet management ports enable you to manage switch operations. You can connect to the switch through these two ports by using an RJ-45connector on a copper cable.

One console port enables you to initially configure the switch and to perform troubleshooting operations. You use an RJ-45connector with a copper cable to connect to this port.

One USB port enables you to save or load switch configurations.

Power Supply for the Cisco Nexus 3016 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch has two slots for power supplies that are initially installed with one or two AC or DC power supplies that have forward or reverse airflow for their cooling. The switch requires only one power supply for its operations, but you can include a second one for redundancy.

To determine which part number to use when ordering replacement power supplies, see Table 1-2.

If the chassis has two power supplies, you can hot swap one of the power supplies during operations. If the chassis has only one power supply, you can install the new power supply in the open slot, turn on that power supply, and then remove the original power supply during operations.

Caution You can order replacement power supplies with forward airflow or reverse airflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow as is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is running reverse airflow and you must order power supplies with reverse airflow (each module has a black stripe). If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch is running forward airflow and you must order replacement modules with forward airflow (modules that do not have a black stripe).

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Note Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it or fill the slot with a filler blank module (part numberN2200-P-BLNK).

For power supply specifications, see the “Power Specifications” section on page B-2.For information about the power supply LEDs and what they indicate, see the“Power Supply Status” section on

page D-3.

Fan Tray for the Cisco Nexus 3016 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3016 switch ships with one fan tray, which is the same fan tray used by the Cisco Nexus 3064 switch (part number N3K-C3064-FANfor forward airflow orN3K-C3064-FAN-Bfor reverse airflow). You can hot swap the fan tray during operations but must replace it within two minutes or the switch can reach an overtemperature condition and shut down.

Caution You can order a replacement fan tray with forward airflow or reverse airflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow as is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is running reverse airflow and you must order a fan tray with reverse airflow. If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch has forward airflow and you must order replacement modules with forward airflow.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Port Connections for the Cisco Nexus 3016 Switch

You use QSFP+ transceivers with the 16 networking ports used for uplinking and downlinking. For low-costconnections to switches in the same or adjacent racks, use QSFP+ transceivers with copper cables. For long distance connections, use the QSFP transceivers connected to optical cables.

Table 1-3 describes the QSFP+ transceivers and cable connections that you can use with the 16 ports used for uplinks and downlinks.

Ports for the Cisco Nexus 3064 Switch

The switch chassis includes the following ports:

1- and 10-GigabitEthernet downlink ports (48 ports)

40-GigabitEthernet uplink ports (4 ports, each handling 4 x10-GigabitEthernet)

100/1000 Ethernet management ports (2 ports)

Console port (1 port)

USB port (1 port)

The chassis has 48 1- and 10-GigabitEthernet downlink ports that you connect to servers, which are often in the same rack or a nearby rack. You use Small Form factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) transceivers with copper or optical cables to connect the switch to the servers. The ports are numbered from left to right from 1 to 48 with theodd-numberedports on top and theeven-numberedports on the bottom.

You use up to four 40-GigabitEthernet uplink ports to connect the switch to one to four hosts or switches. You use a Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) transceiver for each of these ports. That transceiver is either already connected to four copper cables, each handling 10 Gigabits of data, with a SFP+ transceiver on each cable, or you connect an optical cable to the QSFP+ transceiver and to another QSFP+ transceiver on another switch.

Two 100/1000 Ethernet management ports enable you to manage switch operations. You can connect to the switch through these two ports by using an RJ-45connector on a copper cable.

One console port enables you to initially configure the switch and to perform troubleshooting operations. You use an RJ-45connector with a copper cable to connect to this port.

One USB port enables you to save or load switch configurations.

Power Supply for the Cisco Nexus 3064 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch has two slots for power supplies that are initially installed with one or two AC or DC power supplies that have forward or reverse airflow for their cooling. The switch requires only one power supply for its operations, but you can include a second one for redundancy.

To determine which part number to use when ordering replacement power supplies, see Table 1-9.

If the chassis has two power supplies, you can hot swap one of the power supplies during operations. If the chassis has only one power supply, you can install the new power supply in the open slot, turn on that power supply, and then remove the original power supply during operations.

Caution You can order replacement power supplies withfront-to-backairflow orback-to-frontairflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow as is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is runningback-to-frontairflow and you must order power supplies withback-to-frontairflow. If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch is runningfront-to-backairflow and you must order replacement modules withfront-to-backairflow.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Note Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it or fill the slot with a filler blank module (part numberN2200-P-BLNK).

For power supply specifications, see the “Power Specifications” section on page B-2.For information about the power supply LEDs and what they indicate, see the“Power Supply Status” section on

page D-3.

Fan Tray for the Cisco Nexus 3064 Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3064 switch ships with one fan tray, which provide either forward or reverse airflow for cooling. You can hot swap the fan tray during operations but must replace it within two minutes or the switch can reach an overtemperature condition and shut down.

Caution You can order a replacement fan tray with forward airflow or reverse airflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow that is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is running reverse airflow and you must order a fan tray with reverse airflow. If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch has forward airflow and you must order replacement modules with forward airflow.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Port Connections for the Cisco Nexus 3064 Switch

You can use QSFP+, SFP+, and SFP transceivers with copper or optical cables for the uplink and downlink ports, RJ-45connectors for the management ports,RJ-45connector for the console port, and a USB A connector for the USB port.

The four uplink ports support QSFP+ transceivers, each of which can be connected to a single 40-Gigabitoptical cable, a40-Gigabitcopper cable, or four10-Gigabitcopper cables with SFP+ transceivers.Table 1-10 describes the QSFP+ transceivers and cable connections that you can use.

If the chassis has two power supplies, you can hot swap one of the power supplies during operations. If the chassis has only one power supply, you can install the new power supply in the open slot, turn on that power supply, and then remove the original power supply during operations.

Caution You can order replacement power supplies withfront-to-backairflow orback-to-frontairflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow as is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is runningback-to-frontairflow and you must order power supplies withback-to-frontairflow. If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch is runningfront-to-backairflow and you must order replacement modules withfront-to-backairflow.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Note Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it or fill the slot with a filler blank module (part numberN2200-P-BLNK).

Fan Tray for the Cisco Nexus 3132Q Switch

The Cisco Nexus C3132Q switch supports four (3+1) redundant fans, which provide either forward or reverse airflow for cooling. You can hot swap the fan tray during operations but must replace it within one minute.

Both forward (port-sideexhaust) and reversed(port-sideintake) airflow schemes are supported. Theport-sideexhaust scheme is used when the cold air flows in through the side having the fans (facing the cold aisle) and exhausts out of the side having the ports (facing the hot aisle).Port-sideintake scheme is used when the air flows in through the ports (facing the cold aisle) and leaves through the side having the fans (facing the hot aisle).

Transceiver and Cabling Options for the Cisco Nexus 3132Q Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3132Q has 32 QSFP+ ports. QSFP+ technology allows a smooth transition from 10 to 40 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructures in data centers. Each of the Cisco Nexus 3132Q switch’s QSFP+ ports can operate in either native 40 Gigabit Ethernet mode or 4 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet mode. This switch supports both fiber and copper cabling solutions for these two modes.

For low-costcabling,copper-based40-GbpsTwinax cables can be used, and for longer cable reaches,short-reachoptical transceivers are excellent. Connectivity can be established from the QSFP+ ports to 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches or hosts using a splitter cable that has a QSFP+ transceiver on one end and four SFP+ transceivers on the other end. Similar capability can be achieved on the fiber solution by using QSFP+ SR4 transceivers on both ends and procuringthird-partyfiber splitterMPO-to-LCcables.

Table 1-14 lists the QSFP transceiver types supported.

Ports for the Cisco Nexus 3172PQ Switch

The switch chassis includes the following ports:

72 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports (48 SFP+ and 6 QSFP+)

48 SFP ports support 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet

6 QSFP ports support 4 x 10 Gigabit Ethernet or 40 Gigabit Ethernet each

Management, console, and USB flash-memoryports

You use Small Form factor Pluggable Plus (SFP+) and QSFP transceivers with copper or optical cables to connect the switch to the servers. The management port enables you to manage switch operations. The console port enables you to initially configure the switch and to perform troubleshooting operations.

TheUSB port enables you to save or load switch configurations.

Power Supply for the Cisco Nexus 3172PQ Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch has two slots for power supplies that are initially installed with one or two AC or DC power supplies that have forward or reverse airflow for their cooling. The switch requires only one power supply for its operations, but you can include a second one for redundancy.

To determine which part number to use when ordering replacement power supplies, see Table 1-15.

Se n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o n ex u s 3 k - d o c f e e d b a ck @ c i s c o . c o m

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Note Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it or fill the slot with a filler blank module (part numberN2200-P-BLNK).

Fan Tray for the Cisco Nexus 3172PQ Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3172PQ switch supports four (3+1) redundant fans, which provide either forward or reverse airflow for cooling. You can hot swap the fan tray during operations but must replace it within one minute.

Both forward (port-sideexhaust) and reversed(port-sideintake) airflow schemes are supported. Theport-sideexhaust scheme is used when the cold air flows in through the side having the fans (facing the cold aisle) and exhausts out of the side having the ports (facing the hot aisle).Port-sideintake scheme is used when the air flows in through the ports (facing the cold aisle) and leaves through the side having the fans (facing the hot aisle).

Caution You can order a replacement fan tray with forward airflow or reverse airflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow that is used with the switch.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Transceiver and Cabling Options for the Cisco Nexus 3172PQ Switch

The Cisco Nexus 3172PQ supports a wide variety of 1, 10, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity options. 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is achieved in the first 48 ports, and 40 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity is achieved using QSFP+ transceivers in the last 6 ports. QSFP+ technology allows a smooth transition from 10 to 40 Gigabit Ethernet infrastructures in the data center. The Cisco Nexus 3172PQ supports connectivity over copper and fiber cables, providing excellent physical-layerflexibility. Forlow-costcabling,copper-based40-GbpsTwinax cables can be used, and for longer cable reaches,short-reachoptical transceivers are optimal. Connectivity can be established from the QSFP ports to an upstream 10 Gigabit Ethernet switch using a splitter cable that has a QSFP transceiver on one end and four SFP+ transceivers on the other end. Similar capability can be achieved using optical transceivers by procuringthird-partyfiber splitters.Table 1-16 lists the QSFP transceiver types supported.

If the chassis has two power supplies, you can hot swap one of the power supplies during operations. If the chassis has only one power supply, you can install the new power supply in the open slot, turn on that power supply, and then remove the original power supply during operations.

Caution You can order replacement power supplies withfront-to-backairflow orback-to-frontairflow. Be sure to order the same direction of airflow as is used with the switch. If there is a black stripe across the front of the fan trays and power supplies, the switch is runningback-to-frontairflow and you must order power supplies withback-to-frontairflow. If there is no black stripe across the front of these modules, the switch is runningfront-to-backairflow and you must order replacement modules withfront-to-backairflow.

Caution The switch must run with all of its power supply and fan tray modules taking in air from a cold aisle and exhausting air to the hot aisle. If they take in air from a hot aisle, an overtemperature condition can occur and the switch will shut down. If the airflow directions are mixed in the same switch, you will see an error.

Note Never leave a power supply slot empty. If you remove a power supply, replace it with another one. If you do not have a replacement power supply, leave the non functioning one in place until you can replace it or fill the slot with a filler blank module (part numberN2200-P-BLNK).

Required Equipment, page 2-4

Unpacking and Inspecting the Switch, page 2-5

Installation Options with Racks and Cabinets

The Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches can be installed in the following types of racks using a rack-mountkit shipped with the switch:

Open EIA rack

Perforated EIA cabinet

The rack or cabinet that you use must meet the requirements listed in Appendix A, “Cabinet and Rack Specifications.”

The rack-mountkit enables you to install the switch into racks of varying depths. You can use therack-mountkit parts to position the switch with easy access to either the port connections end of the chassis or the end of the chassis with the fan tray and power supply modules. For instructions on how to use arack-mountkit, see the“Installing the Switch” section on page 2-5.

Airflow Direction

You can order the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series chassis with forward or reverse airflow. Forward airflow enters the chassis through the fan tray and power supply modules and exhausts through the port connections end of the chassis. Reverse airflow enters the chassis through the port connections end and exhausts through the fan tray and power supply modules. You must install a forward-airflowchassis with its fan tray and power supply modules located in a cold aisle, and you must install areverse-airflowchassis with its port connections located in a cold aisle.

As shown in Figure 2-1,the modules in a chassis with forward airflow do not have a black stripe across the front of these modules and the modules with reverse airflow do have a black stripe across the front of these modules. All of the modules in a chassis must have the same direction of airflow, which means that all of the modules either have no stripe on them or all of the modules have a black stripe.

Chassis Weight

When lifting the switch chassis, follow these guidelines:

Disconnect all power and external cables before lifting the switch.

Ensure that your footing is solid and the weight of the switch is evenly distributed between your feet.

Lift the switch slowly, keeping your back straight. Lift with your legs, not with your back. Bend at the knees, not at the waist.

Installation Guidelines

When installing the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch, follow these guidelines:

Record the information listed in Appendix E, “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 the service and airflow requirements).

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

Ensure that the switch is going to be positioned so that it takes in air from a cold aisle and exhausts air to the hot aisle. If there is a black stripe across the front of these modules, they have forward airflow and must be positioned with the fan tray and power supplies in a cold aisle. If there is a black stripe across the front of these modules, they have reverse airflow and must be positioned with the port connections in a cold aisle.

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

Note Jumper power cords are available for use in a cabinet. See the“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-8.

Ensure that the chassis can be adequately grounded. If the switch is not mounted in a grounded rack, we recommend connecting both the system ground on the chassis and the power supply ground directly to an earth ground.

Preparing for Installation

Se n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o n ex u s 3 k - d o c f e e d b a ck @ c i s c o . c o m

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 such as the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches, 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 power supply requires a 15-Aor20-Acircuit.

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(0.45 N·m)

M3 screws: 4 in-lb(0.45 N·m)

M4 screws: 12 in-lb(1.36 N·m)

10-32screws: 20in-lb(2.26 N·m)

12-24screws: 30in-lb(3.39 N·m)

Required Equipment

Before beginning the installation, ensure that you have the following items available in addition to the switch and its accessory kit:

Eight customer-supplied12-24or10-32screws (required for attaching slider rails and mounting bracket to the mounting rails)

Number 1 and number 2 Phillips screwdrivers with torque capability

3/16-inchflat-bladescrewdriver

Tape measure and level

ESD wrist strap or other grounding device

Antistatic surface

The following additional items (also not found in the accessory kit) are required to ground the chassis:

Grounding cable (6 AWG recommended), sized according to local and national installation requirements; the required length depends on the proximity of the switch to proper grounding facilities

Crimping tool large enough to accommodate the girth of the grounding lug

Wire-strippingtool

Unpacking and Inspecting the Switch

Caution When handling switch components, wear a grounded ESD strap and handle modules by their handles and carrier edges only. To ground the ESD strap, make sure that it is attached an earth ground or a grounded chassis (grounded through the power cable, the chassis ground, or themetal-to-metalcontact with a grounded rack).

Tip Keep the shipping container in case the chassis requires shipping in the future.

Note The switch is thoroughly inspected before shipment. If any damage occurred during transportation or any items are missing, contact your customer service representative immediately.

To inspect the shipment, follow these steps:

Step 1 Compare the shipment to the equipment list provided by your customer service representative and verify that you have received all items, including the following:

Grounding lug kit

Rack-mountkit

ESD wrist strap

Cables with connectors

Any optional items ordered

Step 2 Check for damage and report any discrepancies or damage to your customer service representative. Have the following information ready:

Invoice number of shipper (see packing slip)

Model and serial number of the damaged unit

Description of damage

Effect of damage on the installation

Step 3 Check to be sure that all of the power supplies and the fan tray have the expected direction of airflow. Forward airflow modules do not have a black stripe, and reverse airflow modules do have a black stripe. The airflow direction must be the same for all modules.

Installing the Switch

This section describes how to use the rack-mountkit to install the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch into a cabinet or rack that meets the requirements described inAppendix A, “Cabinet and Rack Specifications.”

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

Note You must supply the eight10-32or12-24screws required to mount the rack brackets and slider rails to the rack. Therack-mountkit does not provide these screws.

To install the switch in a rack or cabinet, follow these steps:

Step 1 Install the frontrack-mountbrackets on the chassis as follows:

a.Determine whether the chassis port connections or the fan tray and power supply modules should have easier access at the opening of the rack or cabinet. You will install that end of the chassis closest to the opening of the rack or cabinet.

b.On the side of the chassis by the end that is to have the easiest access, align four of the screw holes in a front rack-mountbracket to four screw holes in the side of the chassis. If you want the fan tray and power supplies to have the easiest access, see callouts 1 and 2 inFigure 2-1.If you want the port connections to have the easiest access, see callouts 5 and 6 inFigure 2-2.

Note You can align any four of the holes in the frontrack-mountbracket to four of the six screw holes in the chassis. The holes that you use depend on the requirements of your rack and the amount of clearance required for port cables (3 inches [7.6 cm] minimum) and module handles (1 inch [2.5 cm] minimum).

d.Repeat Steps 1a, 1b, and 1c with the other front rack-mountbracket on the other side of the switch.

Step 2 Install the rearrack-mountguides on the chassis as follows:

a.Align the two screw holes on a rear rack-mountbracket to the middle two screw holes in the remaining six holes on the side of the chassis. If you are aligning the guide to holes that are near the port connections end of the chassis, see Callout 3 inFigure 2-1.Otherwise, see Callout 7 inFigure 2-1.

b.Attach the guide to the chassis using two M4 screws. Tighten the screws to 12 in-lb(1.36 N·m). See Callout 4 or 8 inFigure 2-2.

c.Repeat Steps 2a and 2b with the other rear rack-mountbracket on the other side of the switch.

Step 3 Install the slider rails on the rack or cabinet as follows:

a.Determine which two posts of the rack or cabinet you should use for the slider rails. Of the four vertical posts in the rack or cabinet, two will be used for the front mount brackets attached to the easiest accessed end of the chassis, and the other two posts will have the slider rails.

a.Position a slider rail at the desired level on the back side of the rack and use two 12-24screws or two10-32screws, depending on the rack thread type, to attach the rails to the rack. SeeFigure 2-3.

Note For racks with square holes, you might need to position a12-24cage nut behind each mounting hole in a slider rail before using a12-24screw.

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.

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.

Establishing the System Ground

This section describes how to connect a system ground to the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch.

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

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

You must install the system 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 ground connection and the power supply ground connection to an earth ground. The system 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 Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches are equipped with AC-inputpower supplies.

Grounding the Switch

Se n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o n ex u s 3 k - d o c f e e d b a ck @ c i s c o . c o m

Required Tools and Equipment

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

Grounding lug—Atwo-holestandard barrel lug. This lug supports up to 6 AWG wire. This lug is supplied in the accessory kit.

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

Grounding wire—Notsupplied in the 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.

Crimping tool to crimp the grounding wire to the grounding lug.

Wire-strippingtool to remove the insulation from the grounding wire.

Grounding the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series Chassis

The chassis has a grounding pad with two threaded M4 holes for attaching a grounding lug. The system ground is located on the left side of the chassis (left of the front) on the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches.

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

Caution We recommend grounding the chassis, even if the rack is already grounded.

Caution All power supplies must be grounded. The receptacles of the AC power cables used to provide power to the chassis must be the grounding type, and the grounding conductors should connect to protective earth ground at the service equipment.

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

Statement 1046

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

Step 1 Use awire-strippingtool to remove approximately 0.75 inches (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 (see Callout 1 inFigure 2-6).

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.

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.

Grounding the Switch

Se n d d o c u m e n t c o m m e n t s t o n ex u s 3 k - d o c f e e d b a ck @ c i s c o . c o m

For preventing ESD damage, follow these guidelines:

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 chassis from the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches are equipped with a banana plug connector (identified by the ground symbol next to the connector) somewhere on the front panel. We recommend 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 is not grounded by its connection to a grounded rack, you must connect the switch to an Earth ground. See the “Establishing the System Ground” section on page 2-12 for installation instructions and the 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 field-replaceableunits (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 a grounded rack. We recommend 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 an earth ground (grounded rack or the screw holding a grounding lug to the chassis):

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.

Step 6 Connect each power cable to the AC or DC power source. Press the power cable into the power clip to ensure that the power cable stays connected to the chassis when bumped. The switch should power on as soon as you connect the power cable.

Step 7 Listen for the fans; they should begin operating when the power cable is plugged in.

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

Power supply—StatusLED is green.

Fan module—StatusLED is green.

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

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

Step 9 If a fan tray or power supply is not operating correctly, try removing it and reinstalling it (seeChapter 4, “Replacing Components”). If it still does not operate correctly, contact your customer service representative for a replacement.

Note If you purchased this product through a Cisco reseller, contact the reseller directly for technical support. If you purchased this product directly from Cisco, contact Cisco Technical Support at this URL:http://www.cisco.com/en/US/support/tsd_cisco_worldwide_contacts.html.

Step 10 Verify that the system software has booted and the switch has initialized without error messages.

Connecting to the Network

This chapter describes how to connect the following ports on a Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch:

Console port —Adirect local management connection used to initially configure the switch

Management ports—Anonline management connection

Uplink and downlink ports—Connectionsto hosts and servers

Caution When running power and data cables in overhead or subfloor cable trays, we strongly recommend that you locate power cables and other potential noise sources 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 feet (1 meter), we recommend that you shield 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 Nexus 3000 Series switch, 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 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.

We recommend 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. If you do not connect it to a modem, connect it either before powering the switch on or after the switch has completed the boot process.

Figure 3-1 shows how to connect to the console port on the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch.

Figure 3-1Connecting to the Console Port on a Cisco Nexus 3000 Series Switch

Note To connect the console port to a computer terminal, the computer must support VT100 terminal emulation. The terminal emulation software (such as HyperTerminal or Procomm Plus) makes communication between the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch and a computer possible during setup and configuration.

To connect the console port to a computer terminal, follow these steps:

Step 1 Configure the terminal emulator program to match the following default port characteristics: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity.

Step 2 Connect theRJ-45connector of the console cable to the console port (seeFigure 3-1 on page 3-2)and theDB-9connector to the computer serial port.

Note For configuration instructions, see the appropriate Cisco Nexus 3000 Series CLI configuration guide.

Connecting to the Management Port

Caution To prevent an IP address conflict, do not connect the management port to the network until the initial configuration is complete (see the“Connecting to the Console Port” section on page 3-2).For configuration instructions, see the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series CLI configuration guides.

This section describes how to connect the management ports to an external hub, switch, or router. The Ethernet connector port has an RJ-45interface. To connect the management port to an external hub, switch, or router, follow these steps:

Step 1 Connect the appropriate modular cable to the Ethernet connector port:

Use modular, RJ-45,straight-throughUTP cables to connect the management port to an Ethernet switch port or hub.

Use a crossover cable to connect to a router interface.

Step 2 Connect the other end of the cable to the device.

Connecting to a Server

For the Cisco Nexus 3016 switch, you must use QSFP+ transceivers connected to optical or copper cables to connect the 40-Gigabitports to the hosts or servers in the network. If the servers or switches you are connecting to are in the same rack or an adjacent rack, it is typically cost effective to use the

shorter copper cables, which can connect to another 40-GigabitQSFP+ port or four10-GigabitSFP+ ports. If the servers or switches are further than 16.4 feet (5 meters), it is best to use the optical cable that has40-Gigabittransceivers on both ends.

For the Cisco Nexus 3048 switch, you must use RJ-45connectors on copper cables to make the 10/100/1000 Ethernet downlink connections, and you must use SFP transceivers on copper or optical cables or SFP+ transceivers on optical cables to make the 1- or10-GigabitEthernet uplink connections.

For the Cisco Nexus 3064 switch, you must use RJ-45connectors on copper cables to make the downlink connections and SFP transceivers on copper or optical cables or SFP+ transceivers on optical cables to make the 1- or10-GigabitEthernet uplink connections.

Maintaining SFP and SFP+ Transceivers and Fiber-OpticCables

QSFP+, SFP+, and 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:

Optical 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.

Replacing a Fan Tray, page 4-4

Replacing a Power Supply

The Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switches support a front-endpower supply that you can replace. The switch requires only one power supply for operations, so you can hot swap the redundant power supply during operations.

Caution Be sure that the replacement power supply has the correct direction of airflow, which means that it takes in air from the cold aisle and exhausts air to the hot aisle. It must also have the same direction of airflow as the other power supply (if installed) and fan tray. Otherwise, an overtemperature condition can occur.

Note Depending on the outlet receptacle on your power distribution unit, you may need the optional jumper power cord to connect the Cisco Nexus 3000 Series switch to your outlet receptacle. See the“Jumper Power Cord” section on page C-8.

Step 5 Connect the other end of the power cable to an AC power source.

Caution In a system with dual power supplies, connect each power supply to a separate power source. If a power source failure occurs, the second source will most likely still be available.

Step 6 Verify that the power supply is operational by checking that the power supply LED is green. For information about what the power supply LEDs indicate, see theAppendix D, “LED Descriptions.”

Removing a DC Power Supply

Caution If the switch has only one DC power supply, removing the power supply causes the device to shut down. If you are using two power supplies and you remove one of them, the switch continues to operate.

To remove a DC power supply, follow these steps:

Step 1 Shut off the DC power to the power supply at the circuit breaker. Verify that both LEDs are off.

Step 2 Unclip and remove the clear plastic cover that prevents access to the positive and negative terminals on the DC power supply.

Step 3 Unfasten the positive power cable from the right terminal.

Installing a DC Power Supply

In a system with dual power supplies, connect each power supply to a separate power source. If a power source failure occurs, the second source will most likely still be available.

Caution Be sure that the power supply that you are installing has the same airflow direction as the fan tray module and the other power supply. Either all of the modules must havefront-to-backairflow (no black stripe on the front of the module) or all of the modules must haveback-to-frontairflow (black stripe on the front of the module). If the modules have different airflow directions in the same chassis, you will see an error message.

To install a DC power supply, follow these steps:

Step 1 Verify that the DC power is off at the circuit breaker.

Step 2 Ensure that the system (earth) ground connection has been made for the chassis. For ground connection instructions, see the“Grounding the Switch” section on page 2-10.

Step 3 If the power supply bay has a filler panel, push and hold the thumb latch to the left, and then slide the filler panel out of the power supply bay.

Step 4 Hold the replacement power supply by the handle and position it so that the thumb latch is on the right, and then slide it into the power supply bay, ensuring that the power supply is fully seated in the bay.

Step 5 Engage the thumb latch so that the power supply is firmly held in place in its slot.

Step 6 If there is a clear plastic cover that prevents your access to the terminals, unclip it and remove it from the chassis.

Step 7 Fasten the negative cable to the left terminal.

Note On early manufactured power supplies, the left terminal is labeled as +. On currently manufactured power supplies, the left terminal is labeled as-.

Step 8 Fasten the positive cable to the right terminal.

Note On early manufactured power supplies, the right terminal is labeled as-.On currently manufactured power supplies, the right terminal is labeled as +.

Step 9 Clip the clear plastic cover over the terminals to prevent accidental touching of the terminals.

Step 10 Turn on the power at the circuit breaker.

Step 11 Verify the power supply operation by checking that the power supply LED is green. For information about what the power supply LEDs indicate, see the“Power Supply Status” section on page D-3.

Replacing a Fan Tray

The fan tray is designed to be removed and replaced while the system is operating without causing an electrical hazard or damage to the system if the replacement is performed within 1 minute.

Installing a Fan Tray

Caution If you are replacing a fan tray during operations, you must insert the new fan tray within 2 minutes of removing the original fan tray.

To install a fan tray, follow these steps:

Step 1 Hold the fan tray with the sheet metal flange holding the connector on the bottom.

Step 2 Place the fan tray into the front chassis cavity so it rests on the chassis, and then push the fan tray into the chassis as far as it can go until the captive screw makes contact with the chassis.

Step 3 Tighten the captive screw.

Step 4 Listen for the fans if the device is powered on. You should immediately hear them operating. If you do not hear them, ensure that the fan tray is inserted completely in the chassis and the faceplate is flush with the outside surface of the chassis.

Step 5 Verify that the LED is green. If the LED is not green, one or more fans are faulty. If this problem occurs, contact your customer service representative for a replacement part.
