Laser Safety Information

Laser Safety Information

The GigWorks 1062/16 MKII Switch may use Class 1 lasers to communicate over the fiber optic conductors. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) does not consider Class 1 lasers to be hazardous. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) requires labeling information that states that the lasers are Class 1. The following notices are given so you understand the laser’s certification and classification, the laser type and their use in the fiber optic transmitters, their usage restrictions, and labeling requirements.

Certification and Classification Information

The GigWorks 1062/16 MKII Switch may contain fiber optic interfaces known as optical GigaBit Interface Converters (optical GBICs). Within each system, the optical GBIC component assemblies are located on the front of the chassis. In the U.S., all models of the optical GBIC product family are certified as Class 1 laser products that conform to the requirements contained in the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) regulation 21 CFR Subchapter J. The certification is indicated by a label located on the plastic retainer of the optical GBIC assembly. Outside of the U.S., all models of the optical GBIC product family are certified as Class 1 laser component assemblies that conform to the requirements contained in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard IEC 825-1 (11/1993) and the CENELEC (European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization) European Normalization standard EN 60825-1 (1994). The German testing institute VDE assigned the regulation number 3642* to the certificate of conformity for the product family. The VDE conformity mark is also located on the plastic retainer of the optical GBIC assembly. The DHHS conformity label and the VDE conformity mark may not be visible when the optical GBIC is installed in the system level product. A drawing, later in this section, shows the Class 1 information label required by IEC 825-1. On this system, the label is located on the top of the chassis.

• Note:

VDE regulation number 3642 is for the IBM OLC/OLM/SOC product family.

Another Class 1 information label is supplied with the equipment. This label is installed by the user during the installation procedure. The user is to install the label where it is clearly visible whenever access to the optical ports is possible.

Laser Safety Information

Optical GBICs

Each optical GBIC is a single communications port. Each communications port consists of a transmitter and receiver optical subassembly. The transmitter subassembly contains internally a semiconductor laser diode of either: 1) the gallium aluminum arsenide (GaAlAs) type emitting in the wavelength range of 770 to 860 nanometers (commonly referred to as Shortwave (SW)) or 2) indium gallium arsenide phosphide (InGaAsP) type emitting in the wavelength range of 1270 to 1355 nanometers (commonly referred to as Longwave (LW)). Both SW and LW discrete laser diodes are classified as Class 3B laser products rated at 5.0 milliwatts peak power. Once they are incorporated into the optical GBIC, the product’s automatic power control and power monitoring system maintains the average power that exits from an open fiber at a value below the Class 1 limit for either SW or LW laser link products. In addition, for those GBIC products that contain Open Fiber Control (OFC) the optical fiber link between two GBIC ports is continuously monitored by the open fiber link detection and laser control safety system; in the event of a break anywhere in the path, this control system prevents laser emissions from exceeding Class 1 levels. For the non-OFC links, the optical power from the laser transmitter is controlled and maintained at a lower power level such that the power emitted from either an open fiber or an open laser transmitter is guaranteed to be below the Class 1 limit. Class 1 laser products are not considered to be hazardous. There are no user maintenance or service operations or adjustments to be performed on any optical GBIC.

Usage Restrictions

Failure to comply with these usage restrictions may result in incorrect operation of the system and possibly points of access that may emit laser radiation above Class 1 limits established by the IEC and the U.S. DHHS.

1.Optical GBICs are designed and certified for applications using point-to point optical fibre links only. Use of the product with multiple input or multiple output optical links (for example, star couplers) is prohibited since it is incompatible with the product’s design and function and may require that the user certify the laser product again for conformance to the laser safety regulations.

2.An optical GBIC that contains OFC will not allow normal data transmission on the optical link unless it is connected to another GBIC that also contains OFC with the same OFC timings.

All ports used as F_Ports support Class 1, Class 2, Class 3, and Intermix Fibre Channel service. Refer to the Reference Information appendix for more information.

All ports support the maximum Fibre Channel frame size (2148 bytes) for all classes of Fibre Channel service.

All ports used as FL_Ports support Class 2, and Class 3 Fibre Channel service. Refer to the Reference Information appendix for more information.

As an option, any or all ports can be Trunk Ports (T_Ports). T_Ports support all three classes of service and interconnect chassis in a fabric composed of multiple Switch chassis. T_Ports also “self discover” and are available in groups of four. Any time you use one port in the group as a T_Port, all ports in that group are T_Ports. The port groups are 1-4, 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16. That is, if you use Port 6 as a T_Port, Ports 5, 7, and 8 can only be used as T_Ports or not used at all. Contact your Ancor sales representative or sales engineer for information about using your chassis in a multi-chassis fabric.

Ports are supported by GigaBit Interface Converters (GBICs). GBICs contain the transmitters and receivers that connect to the interconnection media. Each GBIC is “hot pluggable”.

You may populate 2 to 16 ports with GBICs. The choice of ports and GBICs is yours.

The Switch has been validated with GBICs that support a variety of interconnection media. Refer to the Fibre Channel Ports paragraphs later in this section for more information.

Major Switch Management Features

The Switch supports management through:

the Windows NT™ or Windows 95™-based GigWorks MKII Switch Utilities,

a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server, and

a built-in SNMP Agent.

Optionally, the GigWorks MKII Switch Web-Based Management Interface application is also available. This management interface is a Web-based (Java) application.

The Switch Utilities require an Ethernet connection to each managed chassis. The Webbased Switch management application can manage multiple fabrics and can manage multi-chassis fabrics through an Ethernet connection to any one chassis in the fabric. Contact your Ancor sales representative or sales engineer for

of these Broadcast Zones. A port will broadcast to all ports in the same Broadcast Zone (or zones) in-which the port is defined. If Hard Zones are enabled, Broadcast Zones may not cross the defined Hard Zone boundaries.

Name Server Zones allow the division of the fabric into as many as 16 zones that define which ports receive Name Server information. A particular port may be defined in one or more of these Broadcast Zones. A port will receive Name Server information for all ports in the same Name Server Zone (or zones) in-which the port is defined.

Refer to the Switch Management section of this manual for more information.

Major Switch Chassis Features

The following is an overview of the major features of the Switch chassis:

You have the option to add a second power supply for total power supply redundancy. When there are two power supplies, they each become “hot pluggable”. Refer to the Power Supply paragraphs later in this section and also to Section 4 for Removal Replacement procedures.

You have the option to add control firmware that allows your MKII Switch chassis to operate in a multi-stage interconnection fabric with other MKII Switches. Switches in this multi-stage fabric may be connected in either two-stage or three-stage topologies. These multi-stage topologies use crossconnecting (not cascading) for the fewest number of fabric hops between users. Refer to the Reference Information appendix for more information.

The Switch undergoes a battery of Power-On-Self-Tests (POSTs) each time it is powered-up. POST provides one pass through the battery of tests but does not test the GigaBit Interface Converters (GBICs). The POST uses the Heartbeat LED to indicate pass or fail test conditions. Refer to the LED paragraphs later in this section and the POST paragraphs in the Troubleshooting section.

The Switch contains a Continuous Test button on the front panel that, when placed in the TST (Test) position, places the Switch in continuous test mode. This continuous test mode requires that Loopback Plugs (provided with GBICs

1-4 General Description

General Description

ordered from Ancor) be placed on each port populated with a GBIC so that the GBICs may be tested. Refer to the LED paragraphs later in this section and the Continuous Test paragraphs in the Troubleshooting section.

LEDs indicate the status of the Switch and each port. Refer to the Front Panel LED paragraphs later in this section.

The Switch contains an Ethernet connector that provides a connection to a management station. The management station, running the Ancor Switch Utilities or SNMP, provides a means to access such things as the Fibre Channel Management Information Base (MIB) and upgrade the control firmware held in the Switch’s Flash memory. Refer to the Chassis Back paragraphs later in this section and the Switch Management Section of this manual for more information.

The Switch chassis is shipped from the factory physically configured with rubber feet on its bottom that allow it to sit on a flat surface and stack. Mounting brackets (in a separate packet shipped with the Switch) allow you to mount it in a 19-inch rack. When mounted in a rack, the Switch must be supported by rails or a shelf. Refer to the Installation section for the install procedure and the Reference Information appendix for the dimensions and type of rack.

Fibre Channel Ports

Refer to Figure 1-2. The 16 ports are numbered left to right 1 through 16. Ports 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14 are F_Ports or FL_Ports depending on their use. These ports discover their function (F or FL_Port) each time the cabled node executes a Fibre Channel Login. Therefore, if the port cabling is changed from a connection to an N_Port to a connection to an NL_Port or vise-versa, the function of the connected Switch port will also change appropriately. These ports are marked on the chassis front with a small white triangle on each side of the chassis opening. The remaining Switch ports are F_Ports.

Port numbers are marked on the front of the chassis for a single-stage (one chassis) Switch fabric.

General Description

Currently, the following GBICs are certified for use:

Short-wavelength fiber optic GBICs 100-M5-SL-I or 100-M6-SL-I with Open Fiber Control (OFC) support connection to legacy 1062 megabaud Fibre Channel networks. The Optical Link Modules (OLMs) used by many legacy Fibre Channel transmitters and receivers contain an internal OFC system. The OFC is a safety interlock that detects when the optical link has been interrupted and shuts down the laser. Each of the two transmitters in the Fibre Channel link will try periodically to reestablish the link. The laser pulse duration for this re-connect operation is very short. Newer designs of fiber optic transmitters with lower launch powers (like those used in GBICs) do not generally use OFC. However, if one end of a Fibre Channel link has OFC, then both ends must have it.

Short-wavelength fiber optic GBICs 100-M5-SN-I or 100-M6-SN-I without OFC to support connection to new non-OFC Fibre Channel components.

Long-wavelength fiber optic GBICs 100-SM-LC-L.

Copper Inter-Enclosure GBIC (Active) 100-TW-EL-S or 100-TP-EL-S with either DB-9 or HSSDC connectors.

Copper Intra-Enclosure GBIC (Passive) 100-TW-EL-S or 100-TP-EL-S with either DB-9 or HSSDC connectors.

Certified GBICs may be populated in any combination that suits your use. They are “hot-pluggable” and you may snap them in/out without tools.

Refer to the Reference Information appendix for certified GBICs and their specifications. Refer also to the Removal Replacement section of this manual for more information. Figure 1-3 shows a typical GBIC. This one supports fiber optic interconnection media.

General Description

Front Panel Controls

Power Button

Figure 1-2 shows the location of the Power Button. The Power Button is protected by a clear plastic cover that must be flipped UP in order to reach the button. The Power button is an alternate-action switch (press it to turn it on and it stays depressed, press it again to turn it off and the button releases).

When you press the Power button and turn it ON, you enable the logic voltages to leave the Power Supply(s) and enter the Switch logic. The Logic Power Good LED on the front of the chassis and the Power Good light on the back of the Power Supply(s) will light to indicate that the Switch logic is receiving power within the proper voltage range. Refer to the Front Panel LEDs for more information.

As long as the chassis is connected to AC power, the fan(s) run and the power supply(s) produce the logic voltages (3.3 volts and 5 volts) required by the Switch. As long as the Power button has not been depressed (still in the OFF (out) position) the logic voltages do not leave the Power Supply, the Power Good LED on the Power Supply(s) is not lit, and the Logic Power Good LED on the front of the chassis is not lit.

Continuous Test Button

The Continuous Test button on the front panel is an alternate-action switch (press it and it stays depressed, press it again and the button releases). This button must be in the depressed (OP) position for normal operation. The Continuous Test button initiates internal diagnostics when it is in the out (TST) position.

Figure 1-2 shows the location of the Continuous Test Button. The Troubleshooting section in this manual describes the tests and the LED error blink patterns that visually indicate the test failures.

Front Panel LEDs

Refer to Figure 1-2. LEDs visible through lenses in the front of the chassis indicate chassis and port status. During a Reset operation (for about two seconds at the beginning of power-up or as long as the Reset button is pressed) all LEDs are forced ON. The following definitions are valid following the Power-On-

Self-Test (POST) and with the Continuous Test button in the OFF (IN) position. Refer to Section 3 (Diagnostics/Troubleshooting) for information about POST, LED definitions during Continuous Test, and how the LEDs act when the control code (located in Flash memory) hangs up.

Heartbeat LED (Yellow)

The Heartbeat LED indicates the status of the internal Switch processor, the results of Power-On-Self-Tests (POSTs) run at power-up, and tests initiated by the Continuous Test button.

GigWorks MKII-16 Switch Model MKII-BASE16

59003-01 Rev. A

Installer's/User's Manual

General Description

Following a normal power-up with the Continuous Test button in the OFF position, the Heartbeat LED blinks about once per second to indicate that the Switch passed the POSTs and the internal Switch processor is running.

Refer to Section 3 (Diagnostics/Troubleshooting) for more information about Heartbeat LED error codes.

Logic Power Good (Green)

This LED is ON when any Power Supply is delivering power within normal limits to the Switch logic (the Power Button must also be depressed). If you have redundant power supplies, the Logic Power Good LED will stay ON even when one power supply stops working and the other picks up the load. The LED will go OFF when no supply is delivering the proper logic voltages.

Power Supply Fail LED (RED)

This LED is normally OFF. It comes ON only when one supply in a redundant configuration fails but the other supply has picked up the load. When this LED is ON, it is a signal to look at the Power Supply LEDs on the back of each Power Supply to determine which supply failed. Refer to Figure 1-4 for the location of the power supplies and their LEDs. This LED is not meaningful in a system with only one Power Supply.

Over Temperature LED (Red)

Not used. OFF.

Port Logged-In LED (Green)

Each port has its own Logged-In LED.

Initially (immediately after the Switch successfully completes the POST, the Switch holds all Port Logged-In LEDs OFF (no light). They each remain OFF until their connected Fibre Channel Node Port (N_Port) or Node Loop Port (NL_Port) is able to successfully perform a Fibre Channel Fabric Login. The attached node initiates the login process. Following a successful login on a particular port, the Switch turns the Port Logged-In LED ON (lit) for that port. This shows that the port is properly connected and able to communicate with its attached device. The LED for this port remains ON as long the port is still logged in.

If the established link is broken (a fiber opens or the connected port goes out of service), the Port Logged-In LED is shut OFF and the N or NL_Port device will try to regain its logged in status. If the login is once again established, the Switch turns the Port Logged-In LED back ON and communication continues.

Because the attached nodes initiate the Fibre Channel Login process it is important to have the Switch operating before the attached nodes are powered up. Some nodes only try to perform a Fibre Channel Login one

time or several times over a short period of time when they are powered up. If the Switch was not operable at that time, it would miss this login attempt and the attached node may give up trying and require rebooting after the Switch becomes operable.

Port Activity LED (Yellow)

Each port has its own Port Activity LED. The Port Activity LED for a particular port is ON when Class 1, 2, or 3 frames are entering or leaving the port. The Switch turns the LED ON for 50 msec. for each frame, so you should be able to see it for one frame. This LED will not light for frames following an arbitrated loop in bypass mode.

Installer's/User's Manual

General Description

An Input Fuse Holder is incorporated into the AC Input Power Connector assembly. It holds two input fuses. Refer to Section 3 for Troubleshooting information, Section 4 for Removal Replacement, and the Reference Information appendix for fuse size.

Power Supply(s)

The chassis has bays for two power supplies. When there is only one supply, it can operate from either bay and the unused bay is covered with a plate.

The fan on a Power Supply also furnishes cooling for the Switch chassis. A Power Supply fan draws air from the front of the chassis and expels it from the back of the chassis. One Power Supply with its cooling fan is sufficient to operate the Switch.

When there are two Power Supplies, they each become “hot pluggable”. That is, either supply may be removed while the Switch is operating. As long as one good supply remains in operation, the Switch will operate properly. Refer to Section 3 for troubleshooting procedures and Section 4 for Removal/Replacement procedures.

The Power Supply(s) operate independently of the Power Button on the front of the chassis. The supply(s) fan(s) starts to turn and the supply(s) start to produce logic voltages as soon as the chassis is connected to AC power. These logic voltages may, or may not, be enabled out of the power supply into the Switch logic. That depends on the position of the Power Button on the front of the chassis.

Each Power Supply has two lights that indicate its status. Refer to Figure 1-4 for their location.

Power Good Light (Green)

The Power Good Light is ON when its supply is producing logic voltages within their proper voltage ranges and the Power Button is depressed (ON). The light is Off when its supply is not producing proper logic voltages or the Power Button is out (OFF). The Power Button on the front of the chassis must be in the ON position in order to enable the logic voltages into the Switch logic.

Overheat Light (Red)

The Overheat Light is normally OFF. When the power supply senses an overheat condition (airflow blocked or fan stopped) it turns the Overheat Light On and disables its logic voltages. This will turn its own Power On Light OFF and, if it was the only power supply in the Switch, it would power down the Switch. If there was another power supply installed in the Switch, the Power Supply Fail LED on the Switch’s front panel would turn ON and the Switch would continue to operate with the other power supply.

General Description

When the overheated power supply cools down, the power supply will attempt to place itself back in service. If the cause for the overheating condition is still present, the power supply will eventually overheat again and the shutdown process will repeat. During the periods where both power supplies are operating, the Power Supply Fail LED on the front of the chassis will turn OFF. The Power Supply Fail LED will only be ON when one of the two power supplies is actually failing.

Chassis Switch Panel

Refer to Figure 1-4 for the location of the Chassis Switch Panel. The Chassis Switch panel contains a microprocessor Reset button, switches for bypassing the Flash memory and Watchdog Timer, and Test Mode select switches. Use these switches only under the direction of Ancor Customer Service. Refer to the Chassis Switch Panel appendix for a description of these switches and buttons.

Switch Management Connector

The Switch Management Connector is an Ethernet 10BASE-T interface that provides a connection to a management station. The management station, running the Ancor Switch Utilities or SNMP, provides a means to access such things as the Fibre Channel Management Information Base (MIB) and upgrade the control firmware held in the Switch’s Flash memory.

Installation

Note:

This manual covers the installation and cabling of single-stage Switch chassis only.

There are seven basic steps required to install the Switch.

1.Unpack

2.Place or Mount the Equipment

3.Apply the IEC Laser Safety Label (If the installation is in Europe)

4.Install the GBICs

5.Connect the Switch to AC power

6.Check the Power-On-Self-Test (POST) results

7.Cable Adapters to the Switch

1. Unpack

a.Unpack the Switch from the carton. There are no packing materials or shipping fixtures located inside the chassis.

b.Ensure that the power cable has a plug that is suitable for your location. Ancor supplies the Switch with a standard 3-wire computer-type power cable. One end has an IEC 320 plug that mates with the power connector on the back of the chassis. The other end must have a plug that is suitable for your location. If the power cable has the wrong connection for your location, you must supply your own. Refer to the specifications on page 2-6.

c.GBICs (if you have ordered them from Ancor) are packaged separately.

Ancor supplies one Loopback Plug for each type of GBIC you ordered. A Loopback plug is a plug that, when fully inserted into a GBIC port, interconnects transmit and receive for that port. In case of a suspected GBIC failure, you may use these Loopback Plugs, in conjunction with a test, to verify the operation of a GBIC. Refer to Continuous Test in the Power-On- Self-Test descriptions in the Troubleshooting section of this manual for more information.

If you are not going to rack-mount the Switch, simply place it on a flat surface being careful not to obstruct the airflow through the chassis (Allow 165mm (6.5”) front and back. The airflow enters the front of the chassis and exits the back. The top of each chassis has dimples for the rubber feet of a chassis stacked on top.

Rack Mount

If you mount the Switch in a rack, you must remove the side-fillers and install the rack-mounting brackets supplied with the Switch. You may also need to remove the Switch’s rubber feet. They are easily removable in case they are not compatible with your rack. Without the rubber feet, the Switch occupies 2U of space in an EIA rack. The following steps describe how to prepare the chassis for rack mounting:

a.Remove the Face-plate by pulling it straight off the front of the chassis.

b.Remove the two Side-Fillers. They are each secured with six captive

c.Mount the Brackets. Refer to Figure 2-2. The Switch is shipped with a package containing cabinet mounting brackets and screws. You may mount these brackets on the front corners of the chassis or the back corners depending on whether you want the Switch facing the back or front of the cabinet.

Note:

If you mount the Switch in a 19” EIA rack, it must be installed on rails or on a shelf.

d.Place the Switch in a 19” EIA rack and secure it with four (4) 10-32 machine screws (not supplied). The Switch must be supported in the rack on rails or a shelf. If the Switch is supported by a shelf and the vertical space is sufficient, you may leave the rubber feet on the Switch chassis. If the vertical space is not sufficient, you may remove the rubber feet by turning them counterclockwise by hand (or with a flat-blade screwdriver). Be careful not to obstruct the airflow through the chassis (Allow 165mm (6.5”) front and back.

e.Replace the Face-plate if possible. If the Switch is facing the front of the rack the face-plate should fit. Replace the face-plate by aligning its mounting studs with the appropriate holes in the chassis front and push it straight back.

Do not obstruct the airflow through the chassis. The airflow enters the front of the chassis and exits the back.

Installer's/User's Manual

Installation

Refer to Appendix A in this manual for Switch power requirements.

a.Connect the power cable to the back of the chassis.

b.Connect the other end of the power cable to a 3 wire, grounded, AC outlet that delivers power in accordance with the power requirements specified in Appendix A.

Note:

Following the connection of AC power to the chassis, the fans start turning immediately but power is not applied to the logic until the Power button is pressed.

c.Press the Power Button. Refer to Figure 1-2 for its location.

The 3-wire grounded power circuit and the 3-wire power cable provide adequate grounding for the Switch.

Logic Power Good LED

The Logic Power Good LED on the front of the chassis will light when the internal power supply is supplying DC power within its normal operating limits and the Power Button is depressed. Refer to Figure 1-2 for the location of the LED.

If the Logic Power Good LED fails to light when the Power Button is depressed, ensure that both ends of the power cord are properly plugged in, the AC power source is turned ON, and that the input fuses are good.

If you have checked these things and the Power Good LED still is not lit, contact Ancor Customer Service or your authorized maintenance provider. Do not proceed to Step 6 unless the Power Good LED is lit.

6. Check the Power-On-Self-Test (POST) Results

When the Power Supply applies DC power to the Switch logic, the logic runs a Power-On-Self-Test (POST) diagnostic. POST tests the condition of firmware, memories, data-paths, and Switch logic and uses the Heartbeat LED to indicate pass or fail conditions. Refer to the Power On Self Test paragraphs in the Diagnostics and Troubleshooting section (Section 3) of this manual for a description of POST.

About three seconds after the Power Good LED comes on, POST will be complete. At this point the Heartbeat LED will start to indicate whether or not there is a POST error. Check the Heartbeat LED. Figure 1-2 shows the location of the Heartbeat LED.

If the Heartbeat LED is blinking about once every second, the POST passed and you may go to the next step.

If the Heartbeat LED is not blinking once every second, the POST failed. Note what the Heartbeat LED is indicating (by the flash pattern) and contact Ancor Customer Service or your authorized maintenance provider. Do not proceed to

Step 7 unless the POST passed.

7. Cable N or NL_Port Adapters to the Switch

Ports

All 16 ports on the Switch may connect to N_Ports. Ports 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14 may connect to NL_Ports or N_Ports. The type of media used (fiber optic cable or copper) depends on the type of N or NL_Port adapters used and the type of GBICs used in the Switch. You may populate the Switch with any assortment of approved GBICs appropriate for your interconnection media type.

Tuning

You can optimize the system performance by connecting nodes which interchange the greatest amount of traffic to ports on the Switch which are more efficiently interconnected.

Connect nodes which interchange the least amount of traffic to ports on the Switch which are less efficiently interconnected.

The most efficient performance is within a group of four ports. These groups are:

Ports 1-4

Ports 5-8

Ports 9-12

Ports 13-16

When a frame source-port and destination-port are within the same port group, you will realize:

The lowest Class 2/Class 3 frame latency

The highest Class 2/Class 3 point-to-point bandwidth The highest Class 2/Class 3 aggregate bandwidth

The lowest Class 1 connect and disconnect latency — Class 1 frame latency, point-to-point bandwidth, and aggregate bandwidth are not affected by port groups, and are always the theoretical maximum.

When a frame source-port and destination-port are not within the same port group the interconnection is slightly less efficient.

Distance

The maximum distance between each adapter and the Switch depends on the type of GBICs and the type of cable installed. Refer to the Reference Information in Appendix A of this manual for this information. Also, the speed and Fibre Channel Revision Level of each adapter must be compatible with the Switch and the type of I/O media of each adapter must be compatible with the particular GBIC on the Switch.

Hot-Pluggable

All GBICs and cables are “hot-pluggable”. That is, you may have the Switch powered-up while you plug or unplug GBICs or cables of any interconnection media type. Hot-swapping and unplugging does not affect other operating ports.

Installation

Incorrect Cabling

Cabling connected incorrectly will not damage the GBICs or the Switch.

N_Port Connections

Connect Fiber Channel N_Ports to F_Ports on the Switch. All 16 ports on the Switch will function as F_Ports. The Switch will automatically discover which N_Port is connected to which F_Port during Fibre Channel Login process as each N_Port is powered up.

Fiber Optic Connections

Note in Figure 2-3 that each N_Port connects to the switch with a pair of connectors. Connect the transmit connector on the N_Port to the receive connector on the assigned F_Port. Connect the receive connector on the N_Port to the transmit connector on the assigned F_Port.

Keys on “Duplex” cable assemblies (a connector-pair containing both transmit and receive fastened together in one unit), prevent you from connecting them incorrectly.

On the F_Port end of the connection, on the top row of F_Ports, the transmit connector is the right-hand connector of each pair. On the bottom row of F_Ports, the transmit connector is the left-hand connector of each pair.

On the N_Port end, you will have to consult the appropriate adapter or device manual to determine which is which.

Copper Connections

HSSDC connectors are duplex cable assemblies. That is, both the transmit and receive contacts are part of the same keyed plug assembly. You can’t plug them in wrong.

NL_Port Connections

Ports 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 10, 13, and 14 on the Switch will function as FL_Ports if connected to NL_Ports. The Switch will automatically discover which NL_Port(s) are connected to which FL_Port during Fibre Channel Login process as each N_Port is powered up.

The Switch FL_Ports support Loop devices running Fibre Channel Public Loop mode. Refer to the Fibre Channel FC-FLA specification.

Fiber Optic Connections

Keys on “Duplex” cable assemblies (a connector-pair containing both transmit and receive fastened together in one unit), prevent you from connecting them incorrectly.

On the FL_Port end of the connection, on the top row of FL_Ports, the transmit connector is the right-hand connector of each pair. On the bottom row of FL_Ports, the transmit connector is the left-hand connector of each pair.

On the NL_Port end, you will have to consult the appropriate adapter or device manual to determine which is which.

Installation

Most NL_Port connections to the Switch are via Hubs or directly to storage devices such as JBODs and disc arrays. Connect the transmit SC fiber optic connector on the FL_Port to the receive SC fiber optic connector on the NL_Port. Connect the receive SC fiber optic connector on the FL_Port to the transmit SC fiber optic connector on the NL_Port.

In some cases you may need to connect a loop of NL_Ports to the Switch without the use of a Hub. Note in Figure 2-3 that these NL_Ports are connected in a loop from the transmit side of an FL_Port on the Switch, through each NL_Port in the loop, then back to the receive side of the original FL_Port on the Switch. Connect the transmit connector on an FL_Port to the receive connector on the first NL_Port in the loop. Continue to connect each NL_Port in the loop, transmit to receive. Then connect the transmit connector on the last NL_Port in the loop to the receive connector of the same FL_Port on the Switch that you connected to the first NL_Port in the loop.

Copper Connections

HSSDC connectors are duplex cable assemblies. That is, both the transmit and receive contacts are part of the same keyed plug assembly. You can’t plug them in wrong. Connect one end of the cable to the Loop device and the other end to a port on the FL_Ports on the Switch.

Switch Management

Introduction

The Switch supports management through:

the Windows NT™ or Windows 95™-based GigWorks MKII Switch Utilities,

a Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server, and

a built-in SNMP Agent.

Optionally, the GigWorks MKII Switch Web-Based Management Interface application is also available. This management interface is a Web-based (Java) application.

The Switch Utilities require an Ethernet connection to each managed chassis. The Webbased Switch management application can manage multiple fabrics and can manage multi-chassis fabrics through an Ethernet connection to any one chassis in the fabric. Contact your Ancor sales representative or sales engineer for information about the Web-based Switch management application.

GigWorks MKII Switch Utilities
