Step 2. Complete the Pre-Installation Checklist

During the initial configuration process, the system prompts you to enter information for each blade contained in the iSR6200. Use the spaces provided in Table 1 and Table 2 to record the IP addresses for each blade.

Table 1. Worksheet for Router Blade 1 (left) Parameters

Symbolic name of the iSR6200 Blade 1

Management port IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (if not using DHCP)

iSCSI port 1 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (GE-1)

IP address of the Internet simple name service (iSNS) server for iSCSI port 1 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 2 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (GE-2)

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 2 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 3 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for the optional (FC3, GE-3, or 10GE-3) port

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 3 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 4 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for the optional (FC4, GE-4, or 10GE-4) port

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 4 (if iSNS will be enabled)

Table 2. Worksheet for Router Blade 2 (right) Parameters

Management port IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (if not using DHCP)

iSCSI port 1 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (GE-1)

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 1 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 2 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway (GE-2)

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 2 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 3 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for the optional (FC3, GE-3, or 10GE-3) port

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 3 (if iSNS will be enabled)

iSCSI port 4 IP address, subnet mask, and gateway for the optional (FC4, GE-4, or 10GE-4) port

IP address of the iSNS server for iSCSI port 4 (if iSNS will be enabled)

Step 3. Mount the Router

To mount the iSR6200 router in the rack, follow the instructions (QLogic 6200 Storage Router Rack Mounting Guide) provided in the rack mount kit.

Step 4. Insert Additional Blade into Router (as needed)

If you have purchased an additional blade (B10), insert it into the iSR6200 router as follows:

1.Move the ejector latch handle to a position horizontal to the base.

2.Slide the blade into an open chassis slot.

3.When the blade is completely inserted, raise the ejector latch handle to snap the blade into place.

Step 5. Install the SFP Transceivers

An SFP transceiver is required for each router port that will be connected to a Fibre Channel device or switch. SFPs are included in the package. If you prefer to use SFP transceivers other than the ones provided, purchase one of the QLogic recommended transceivers listed in Table 3.

To install an SFP transceiver, insert the transceiver into the router port, and then press gently until it snaps in place. The transceiver will fit only one way. If the transceiver does not install under gentle pressure, flip it over and try again.

Step 6. Apply Power to the Router

The iSR6200 router chassis contains one or two router blades, along with a power cooling module (PCM) for each blade. Each chassis blade provides light emitting diodes (LEDs) and connectors that face the front of the chassis. Each PCM provides a power connector, as well as an LED (see Figure 3).

1.Attach the AC power cord to the power connector, located on the back of the PCM connected directly behind the router blade.

2.Connect the opposite end of the power cord to the wall outlet or power strip.

3.Check the PCM power LED to make sure the PCM is operational (green = power, yellow = no AC power).

4.Verify that the router’s input power LED is illuminated.

The iSR6200 router runs its self test and begins normal operation—this may take a minute.

5.Verify that the heartbeat LED is blinking (once per second), and that the system fault LED is not illuminated.
