Safety and regulatory information

NOTE

The service procedures are designed to help you isolate problems. They are written with the assumption that you have model-specific training on all computers, or that you are familiar with the computers, functions, terminology, and service information provided in this manual.

vii

General Safety

Follow these rules to ensure general safety:

Observe good housekeeping in the area of the machines during and after maintenance.

Do not perform any action that causes hazards to the customer, or that makes the equipment unsafe.

Place removed covers and other parts in a safe place, away from all personnel, while you are servicing the machine.

Keep your tool case away from walk areas so that other people will not trip over it.

Do not wear loose clothing that can be trapped in the moving parts of a machine. Ensure that your sleeves are fastened or rolled up above your elbows. If your hair is long, fasten it.

Insert the ends of your necktie or scarf inside clothing or fasten it with a nonconductive clip, approximately 8 centimeters (3 inches) from the end.

Do not wear jewelry, chains, metal-frame eyeglasses, or metal fasteners for your clothing. Remember: Metal objects are good electrical conductors.

Wear safety glasses when you are: hammering, drilling soldering, cutting wire, attaching springs, using solvents, or working in any other conditions that might be hazardous to your eyes.

After service, reinstall all safety shields, guards, labels, and ground wires. Replace any safety device that is worn or defective.

Reinstall all covers correctly before returning the machine to the customer.

Electrical Safety

CAUTION:

Electrical current from power, telephone, and communication cables can be hazardous. To avoid personal injury or equipment damage, disconnect the server system power cords, telecommunication systems, networks, and modems before you open the server covers.

Important: Observe the following rules when working on electrical equipment:

Always look carefully for possible hazards in your work area. Examples of these hazards are moist floors, nongrounded power extension cables, power surges, and missing safety grounds.

Do not touch live electrical circuits with the reflective surface of an inspection mirror. The surface is conductive; such touching can cause personal injury and machine damage.

viii Intel Blade Server Switch Module SBCEFCSW Module Management and User’s Guide

Handling electrostatic discharge-sensitive devices

Any computer part containing transistors or integrated circuits (IC) should be considered sensitive to electrostatic discharge (ESD). ESD damage can occur when there is a difference in charge between objects. Protect against ESD damage by equalizing the charge so that the server, the part, the work mat, and the person handling the part are all at the same charge.

NOTE

Use product-specific ESD procedures when they exceed the requirements noted here.

Make sure that the ESD-protective devices you use have been certified (ISO 9000) as fully effective.

When handling ESD-sensitive parts:

Keep the parts in protective packages until they are inserted into the product.

Avoid contact with other people.

Wear a grounded wrist strap against your skin to eliminate static on your body.

Prevent the part from touching your clothing. Most clothing is insulative and retains a charge even when you are wearing a wrist strap.

Use the black side of a grounded work mat to provide a static-free work surface. The mat is especially useful when handling ESD-sensitive devices.

Select a grounding system, such as those in the following list, to provide protection that meets the specific service requirement.

Attach the ESD ground clip to any frame ground, ground braid, or green-wire ground.

Use an ESD common ground or reference point when working on a double-insulated or batteryoperated system. You can use coax or connector-outside shells on these systems.

Use the round ground-prong of the AC plug on AC-operated computers.

NOTE

The use of a grounding system is desirable but not required to protect against ESD damage.

CAUTION:

If your system has a module containing a lithium battery, replace it only with the same module type made by the same manufacturer. The battery contains lithium and can explode if not properly used, handled, or disposed of. Do not:

Throw or immerse into water

Heat to more than 100×C (212×F)

Repair or disassemble

Dispose of the battery as required by local ordinances or regulations.

CAUTION:

When laser products (such as CD-ROMs, DVD-ROM drives, fiber optic devices, or transmitters) are installed, note the following:

Do not remove the covers. Removing the covers of the laser product could result in exposure to hazardous laser radiation. There are no serviceable parts inside the device.

Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein might result in hazardous radiation exposure.

ix

Danger: DANGER

Danger: Some laser products contain an embedded Class 3A or Class 3B laser diode. Note the following:

Danger: Laser radiation when open. Do not stare into the beam, do not view directly with optical instruments, and avoid direct exposure to the beam.

CAUTION:

Hazardous energy is present when the blade is connected to the power source. Always replace the blade cover before installing the blade.

1 Introduction

You can manage and configure your Intel® Blade Server Switch Module SBCEFCSW through a Telnet connection to the embedded command line interface (CLI) or by using the SAN Utility application. The SAN Utility provides an intuitive graphical user interface (GUI) that you can use to configure multiple Fibre Channel switch modules through other connected SAN devices from a single interface. The SAN Utility application is referred to throughout this publication as the SAN Utility. The Fibre Channel Switch Module is referred to throughout this publication as the switch module.

This User’s Guide provides instructions to:

Configure your switch module

Manage fabrics, ports, and switch modules

Use Telnet and the CLI to configure switch module parameters

You can manage the SBXL52 fabric through an Ethernet network using the SAN Utility or the CLI. The SAN Utility is installed on a Microsoft* Windows* 2003, Advanced Server Version 2.1 and Red Hat* Linux* Version 9.0.

The switch module has an embedded Telnet server through which a Telnet client can connect and manage the switch module using the CLI. See Chapter <$elemparanumonlyCommand line interface (CLI),” on page 5 for more information about Telnet and CLI commands.

SNMP provides monitoring and trap functions for the fabric. The switch module firmware supports SNMP Versions 1, 2, and 3; the Fibre Alliance Management Information Base (FA-MIB) version 4.0; and the Fabric Element Management Information Base (FE-MIB) RFC 2837. Traps are formatted using SNMP version 2.

If you are an experienced user, you can use the Telnet CLI to perform the following tasks:

Manage the switch module from the SBCE management module interface to the Telnet client

Perform single switch management

Use advanced control commands

If you are a new user or if you need to manage multiple switch modules from a single interface, you can use the SAN Utility GUI to perform the following tasks:

2 Command line interface (CLI)

Your switch module contains an embedded Telnet server. This server enables a Telnet client to establish a Telnet session with the switch module to retrieve information or to configure parameters using the CLI. You can use the CLI to perform a variety of fabric and switch management tasks through an Ethernet connection to your SBCE unit.

You can access the Telnet interface in two ways:

In the SBCE management module Web interface

In a command-line window on a connected network management workstation

Important: Before you configure your switch module, be sure that the management modules in your SBCE unit are properly configured. In addition, to access and manage your switch module from an external environment, you might need to enable certain features, such as the external ports and external management over all ports. See the applicable Installation and User’s Guide publications on the Resource CD for more information. For more detailed information about configuring your switch module, see the Intel® Blade Server Swtich Module SBCEFCSW Installation Guide on the Resource CD.

Logging on to a switch

To log on to a switch using Telnet, complete the following steps:

1.Open a command-line window on the network management workstation, type one of the following commands, and press Enter.

For switch module bay 3: telnet 192.168.70.129

For switch module bay 4: telnet 192.168.70.130

A command prompt window opens.

2.At the Login prompt, type the initial default user ID, USERID. At the Password prompt, type the initial default password, PASSW0RD (the sixth character is a zero, not the letter O). The user ID and password are case sensitive.

This user account provides full access to the switch and its configuration. After planning your fabric management needs and creating your own user accounts, consider changing the password for this account. See “Commands” on page 6 for more information about authority levels. See the “User command” on page 62 for information about creating user accounts.

NOTE

The switch module supports a combined maximum of 15 logins. This includes the SAN Utility inband and out-of-band logins, Telnet out-of-band logins, and SNMP out-of-band logins. A maximum of 10 SAN Utility logins are accepted. Additional logins will be refused.

5

Command syntax

The command syntax is as follows:

command

keyword keyword [value]

keyword [value1] [value2]

The command is followed by one or more keywords. Consider the following rules and conventions:

Commands and keywords are lowercase and case sensitive.

Required keyword values are shown in standard font: [value]. Optional values are shown in italics:

[value].

The underlined portion of each keyword indicates the abbreviated form that can be used. For example the Delete keyword can be abbreviated Del.

Commands

The command set provides for User and Admin authority levels.

User authority grants viewing access to the fabric and switches using the Show command and other readonly commands.

Admin authority includes the User authority and grants permission to use the Admin command. The Admin Start command opens an admin session, which provides access to the commands that change switch and fabric configurations. See the “Admin command” on page 8.

Keywords

start

Opens the admin session.

end

Closes the admin session. The Logout, Shutdown, and Reset Switch commands will also end an admin session.

cancel

Terminates an admin session opened by another user. Use this keyword with care because it terminates the admin session without warning the other user and without saving pending changes.

Notes

Closing a Telnet window during an admin session does not release the session. In this case, you must either wait for the admin session to time out, or use the Admin Cancel command.

Examples

The following example shows how to open and close an admin session.

ConfigDescription

The name for the configuration. The default is undefined.

 

 

threshold

Initiates a configuration session by which to generate and log alarms for selected events. Each event, its thresholds, and sampling interval is displayed, one line at a time and you are prompted for a value. For each parameter, enter a new value or press the Enter key to accept the current value shown in brackets. These parameters must be saved in a configuration and activated before they will take effect. See the “Config command” on page 11 for information about saving and activating a configuration. Table 9 describes the Set Config threshold parameters.

Table 9. Set Config threshold parameters

Parameter

 

Description

 

 

Threshold Monitoring Enabled

Master enable/disable parameter for all events. Enables (True) or

 

disables (False) the generation of all enabled event alarms.

 

 

CRCErrorsMonitoringEnabled

The event type enable/disable parameter. Enables (True) or disables

DecodeErrorsMonitoringEnabled

(False) the generation of alarms for each of the following events:

ISLMonitoringEnabled

CRC errors

LoginMonitoringEnabled

Decode errors

LogoutMonitoringEnabled

ISL connection count

LOSMonitoringEnabled

Login errors

 

 

Logout errors

 

• Loss-of-signal errors

 

 

Rising Trigger

The event count above which an event is logged. Once the count

 

exceeds the rising threshold, one alarm is logged. The switch will not

 

generate another alarm for that event until the count falls below the

 

falling threshold and rises again above the rising threshold.

 

 

Falling Trigger

The event count above which an event becomes eligible for logging in

 

the alarm log.

 

 

Sample Window

The period of time in seconds in which to count events.

 

 

 

zoning

Initiates an editing session in which to change switch zoning attributes. Each parameter is displayed, one line at a time, and you are prompted for a value. For each parameter, enter a new value or press the Enter key to accept the current value shown in brackets.

Table 10. Set Config zoning parameters

Parameter

Description

 

 

AutoSave

Determines whether zoning changes will be saved to flash (nonvolatile) memory

 

(On) or to RAM (volatile) (Off). The default is On.

 

 

Default

Determines communication among ports/devices in the absence of an active zone

 

set. “All” enables all ports/devices to communicate with one another. “None”

 

prohibits communication among ports/devices.
