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.

Preparing for Installation

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 n ex u s 5 k d o c s @ c i s c o . c o m .

Record the information listed in Appendix G, “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 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-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.

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 6004 switch, 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.

Ensure that all fan trays and power supplies have the same airflow drection.

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)

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.

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.

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 6000 series 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.

Grounding 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 n ex u s 5 k d o c s @ c i s c o . c o m .

If your chassis does not have the system ground attached, you must install the system ground lug. See the “Establishing the System Ground” section on page 2-11 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. 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 the ground lug screw as follows:

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.

To attach the ESD wrist strap to the system ground lug screw for any of the Cisco Nexus 6004 switches, clip the grounding wire to the screw that attaches the grounding lug to the switch chassis .

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 astatic-shieldingcontainer. If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in astatic-shieldingcontainer.

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 Cisco Nexus 6000 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 6000 Series switches are equipped with AC-inputpower supplies.

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. Supplied as part of accessory kit.

Grounding screws—TwoM4 x 8mm (metric)pan-headscrews. These screws are 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.

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 6000 Series Chassis

The chassis has a grounding pad with two threaded M4 holes for attaching a grounding lug. The location of the system ground on the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch is similar to that on the Cisco Nexus 5500 Platform switches.

Note For the procedure on how to ground the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch chassis, see the“Grounding the Cisco Nexus 6000 Series Chassis” section on page 2-11.

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.

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

Statement 1046

Grounding the chassis is required if you are using DC power supplies, even if the rack is already grounded. A grounding pad with two threaded M4 holes is provided on the chassis for attaching a grounding lug. The ground lug must be NRTL listed. In addition, the copper conductor (wires) must be used and the copper conductor must comply with NEC code for ampacity.

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

Use a wire-strippingtool to remove approximately 0.75 inches (19 mm) of the covering from the end of the grounding cable.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Note Do not connect the Ethernet port to the LAN until the initial switch configuration has been performed. For instructions on configuring the switch, see theCisco Nexus 6000 Series CLI 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 power supply slots have filler panels installed, the faceplates of all modules are flush with the front of the chassis, and the captive screws of the power supplies, fan module, and all expansion modules are tight.

Step 2 Verify that the power supply and the fan modules are installed.

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

Step 3 Ensure that the switch is adequately grounded as described in the“Grounding the Switch” section on page 2-7,and that the power cables are connected to outlets that have the required AC power voltages (see the“Power Specifications” section on page B-2).

Step 4 For the switch, insert each end of the power clip (from the accessory kit) into holes on tabs located on either side of the power connectors (seeFigure 2-16).

Step 5 Connect each power cable to the power connectors on the chassis and an AC power source. Press the power cable into the power clip to endure 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 6 Listen for the fans; they should begin operating when the power cable is plugged in.

Step 7 After the switch boots, verify that the LED operation is as follows:

Fan module—StatusLED is green.

Power supply—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, then one or more environmental monitor is reporting a problem.

The Link LEDs for the Ethernet connector 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 Ethernet connector port remains off until the port is connected.

Step 8 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 Switch

This chapter describes how to connect the Cisco Nexus 6004 switche to the following types of ports:

Console port —Aport that you can use to create a local management connection.

Ethernet ports, both encrypted and unencrypted—Theseports can be used to connect to a LAN.

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 ft (1 m), 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 6004 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. 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.

You can use the console port to perform the following:

Configure the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch from the CLI.

Monitor network statistics and errors.

Configure SNMP agent parameters.

Download software updates.

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 6004 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 and theDB-9connector to the computer serial port.

Cabinet and Rack Requirements

This section provides the 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

Standard open racks

Note If you are selecting an enclosed cabinet, we recommend 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).

This section includes the following topics:

General Requirements for Cabinets and Racks, page A-1

Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets, page A-2

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.

The cabinet or rack must also meet the following requirements:

The minimum vertical rack space for the Cisco Nexus 6004 chassis must be four RU (rack units).

Appendix A Cabinet and Rack Installation

Cable Management Guidelines

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 n ex u s 5 k d o c s @ c i s c o . c o m .

The width between the rack-mountingrails must be at least 19 inches 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 requirements are as follows:

The minimum spacing for the bend radius for fiber-opticcables should have thefront-mountingrails of the cabinet offset from the front door by a minimum of 3 inches (7.6 cm), and a minimum of 5 inches (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 inches (59.7 to 86.4 cm) to allow for rear-bracketinstallation.

A minimum of 2.5 inches (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-8.

Requirements Specific to Perforated Cabinets

A perforated cabinet is 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 percent open area perforation pattern, with at least 15 square inches (96.8 square cm) of open area per rack unit of door height.

The roof should be perforated with at least a 20 percent open area.

The cabinet floor should be open or perforated to enhance cooling.

Cisco provides an R-Seriesrack that conforms to these requirements.

Cable Management Guidelines

To help with cable management, you might want to allow additional space in the rack above and below the chassis to make it easier to route as many as 56 fiber or copper cables through the rack.

Console Port

The console port is an asynchronous RS-232serial port with anRJ-45connector.

Supported Power Cords and Plugs

Each power supply has a separate power cord. Standard power cords or jumper power cords are available for connection to a power distribution unit that has IEC 60320 C19 outlet receptacles. The standard power cords have an IEC C13 connector on the end that plugs into the switch. The optional jumper power cords, for use in cabinets, have an IEC C13 connector on the end that plugs into the switch and an IEC C14 connector on the end that plugs into an IEC C13 outlet receptacle.

Note Only the regular power cords or jumper power cords provided with the switch are supported.

Table C-2 lists the power cords for the Cisco Nexus 6004 switch and provides their lengths in feet and meters.

Troubleshooting Hardware Components

This appendix describes how to identify and resolve problems that might occur with the hardware components of a Cisco Nexus 6000 Series switch.

This appendix includes the following sections:

Overview, page E-1

Switch Hardware Best Practices, page E-1

Power Supply Conditions, page E-2

Overview

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

Problems with the initial power up are often caused by a module that is not firmly connected to the backplane or a power supply that has been disconnected from the power cord connector.

Overheating can also cause problems with the system, though typically only after the system has been operating for an extended period of time. The most common cause of overheating is the failure of a fan module.

Switch Hardware Best Practices

Use the recommendations in this section to ensure the proper installation, initialization, and operation of the switch.

Installation Best Practices

When installing the switch, follow these best practices:

Plan your site configuration and prepare the site before installing the chassis.

Verify that you have the appropriate power supplies for your chassis configuration.

Install the chassis following the rack and airflow guidelines presented in this guide.

Verify that the chassis is adequately grounded.

Initialization Best Practices

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

Power supplies are supplying power to the system.

Fan modules are operating normally.

The system software boots successfully.

Switch Operation Best Practices

To ensure proper operation of your switch, take the following actions:

Make a copy of the running configuration to CompactFlash for a safe backup.

Always enter the copy running-config startup-config CLI command after you modify the running configuration and ensure that the system is operating properly.

Never use the init system CLI command unless you understand that you will lose the running and startup configuration as well as the files stored on bootflash:.

Keep backup copies of the running kickstart and the system images on CompactFlash.

Power Supply Conditions

The two LEDs on each power supply indicate the power status for each power supply. To determine the current status for a power supply unit, note which LED is on, blinking, or off and refer to Table E-1.
