10/100/1000 BASE-T ports


All ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices provide 24 or 48 RJ45 ports that operate at 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps half or full duplex, or at 1000 Mbps full duplex. Because all ports support automatic MDI or MDI-X operation, you can use straight-through cables for all network connections to PCs or servers, or to other devices or hubs. In addition, it is ideal (and preferred) to use straight-through cables for switch-to-switch connections. Each port supports auto-negotiation, so the optimum transmission mode (half or full duplex), and the data rate (10, 100, or 1000 Mbps) can be selected automatically. If a device connected to one of these ports does not support auto-negotiation, the communication mode of the port can be configured manually.

SFP or SFP+ fiber ports


ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices contain four small form factor pluggable (SFP) ports (ports 1 through 4). These ports reside on slot 2 of the stackable switch. These SFP or SFP+ ports can be used as uplink ports or stacking ports. The SFP ports support 1 Gbps port speeds. The SFP ports do not support 10/100 Mbps speeds. The SFP+ ports support 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps port speeds. The ICX 6450 device has four active uplink and stacking ports on slot 2. The top row consists of ports 1 and 3, and the bottom row consists of ports 2 and 4. By default, ports 1 and 3 are 10 Gbps stacking ports. By default, without a license at bootup, ports 2 and 4 come up in 10 Gbps port speed in an error disabled state. To enable ports 2 and 4 to 10 Gbps port speed, purchase the ICX6450-2X10G-LIC-POD license. For more information about enabling ports 2 and 4 to 10 Gbps port speed, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide. The ICX6450-10G-LIC-POD license is not applicable to ICX 6430 devices because there are no 10 Gbps ports on the device. For information about supported SFP and SFP+ transceivers, refer to the following Brocade website: http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/data_sheets/product_data_sheets/Optics_ DS.pdf

Connecting devices in a stack


ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 support linear and ring stack topologies, and can also operate as standalone devices. ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices have four ports on the front panel for a stacking configuration. ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices ship with two default stacking ports configured. When stacking is enabled, ports 1 and 3 are dedicated to stacking and cannot be used for data ports. Use the stack-port command to select only one of these default ports as the stacking port. If you do not select a default port as the stacking port, both default ports will operate as stacking ports. For more information about using the stack-port command on ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices, refer to to the FastIron Configuration Guide. If stacking is not enabled on the ports,

Connecting devices in a stack

then all four stacking ports can be used for data or uplink ports. By default, ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices are not configured for trunked stacking. You can dynamically configure or remove a stacking trunk port configuration using the stack-trunk command or the multi-trunk command. For more information about these commands, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide. ICX 6450 and ICX 6430 devices support hitless stacking switchover and failover. The Secure Setup utility is supported for ICX 6450 and ICX 6430 devices.

Connecting ICX 6450 devices in a stack


ICX 6450 devices have 24 or 48 10/100/1000 Mbps data ports and 4 ports with 1-Gbps or 10-Gbps SFP+ fiber uplink and stacking ports. The top row consists of ports 1 and 3, and the bottom row consists of ports 2 and 4. By default, ports 1 and 3 are 10-Gbps stacking ports. By default, without a license at bootup, ports 2 and 4 come up in 10-Gbps port speed in an error disabled state. To enable ports 2 and 4 to 10-Gbps port speed, purchase the ICX6450-2X10G-LIC-POD license. For more information about enabling ports 2 and 4 to 10-Gbps port speed, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.

Connecting ICX 6430 devices in a stack


ICX 6430 devices have 24 or 48 10/100/1000 Mbps data ports and 4 1-Gbps SFP fiber uplink and stacking ports. The default stacking ports are 1 and 3. The 4 1-Gbps ports are not eligible for an upgrade to 10-Gbps port speed. Trunk stacking configuration is supported for ICX 6430 devices. LAG configuration is supported for stacking or uplink ports when a pair of 1-Gbps ports are aggregated.

Trunking configuration considerations for ICX 6430 and ICX 6430 devices
The ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 stacking ports are grouped into two trunks. Follow these guidelines for connecting and configuring the stacking ports: After enabling the ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 trunked stacking ports, it is recommended that you enter the write memory command to save your configuration.

NOTE

You can connect one or both ports in a trunk. Connecting both ports in a trunk increases
stacking bandwidth and provides resiliency.

You must enable stacking and connect cables properly for the stack to work. The active copper
cable lengths for 1-Gbps ports are 1 m (3.2 ft) and 5 m (16.4 ft). The copper cable lengths for 10-Gbps ports are 1 m (3.2 ft), 3 m (9.8 ft), and 5 m (16.4 ft).

The default stacking ports are always ports 1 and 3. You can trunk (or un-trunk) ports 1 to 2
and or ports 3 to 4. One or both of the two sets of stacking ports can be trunked (or un-trunked).

When creating a trunk, the ports in the same column are always trunked. For ICX 6430
devices, all stack ports must be at 1-Gbps port speed to enable trunking. For ICX 6450 devices, all stack ports must be configured to 10-Gbps port speed to enable trunking. For example, you can connect ports 1/2/3 to 1/2/4 to form one trunk on one device, and ports 2/2/1 to 2/2/2 to form a second trunk on another device.

22

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

Connecting devices in a stack

If you connect both ports in a trunk, both ports must connect to both ports of one trunk on
another device.

ICX 6450 devices support up to eight units in a stack. You can mix and match stacking units
between ICX 6450 48-port units and ICX 6450 24-port units.

You cannot mix and match stacking units between ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices with
1-Gbps ports.

ICX 6430 devices support up to four units in a stack. You cannot mix and match stacking units between ICX 6430 48-port units and ICX 6430
24-port units.

ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 stack topologies


In a linear stack topology, there is a single stack cable connection between each switch that carries two-way communications across the stack. In a ring stack topology, an extra cable is connected between the top and bottom switches forming a ring or closed-loop. The closed-loop cable provides a redundant path for the stack link, so if one link fails, stack communications can be maintained. The following figures show stacking cabling configurations. Figure 27 shows an example of how the stack cables can be connected between switches if you only connect one port per trunk. The figure shows both linear and ring stacking configurations. The one port per trunk topology is the most commonly configured stacking topology and is supported for both ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 switches. Figure 28 shows how the stack cables are connected between switches in a linear stacking configuration for dual linking. The linear stacking topology is supported for both ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices. Figure 29 shows how the stack cables are connected between switches in a ring stacking configuration. The ring stacking topology is supported for both ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices.

ICX 6400-EPS1500 external power supply


In the event of an AC power loss or internal power supply device failure, the Brocade ICX 6400-EPS1500 external power supply can be used as a backup power source to a device when any of the three ports are connected to an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device. Proprietary DC cables are used to connect any of the three EPS ports of the ICX 6400-EPS1500 to the rear EPS port of an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device. For more information about connecting an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device to the ICX 6400-EPS1500, refer to, Connecting devices to the external power supply on page 40. Each EPS port provides an external 12 V as redundant system power source (up to 65 W), and an external 54 V additional PoE power source (up to 370 W). When the ICX 6400-EPS1500 is connected to an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 non-PoE device, it operates as an external redundant power supply to the devices. In this case, only the 12 V of the EPS port is utilized by the device. The 54 V PoE power source is not used by the device.

NOTE
The internal power supply of the ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device is not a field-replaceable unit (FRU). The devices must be shut down by administrators for replacement.

ICX 6400-EPS1500 external power supply

Brocade recommends that you pay attention to the PoE or PoE+ port configuration of the device when connecting to an ICX 6400-EPS1500. The internal power supply of each ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 PoE or PoE+ device has a maximum number of PoE or PoE+ ports that are supported. When the ICX 6400-EPS1500 is connected to an ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 PoE device to be used as a redundant backup power source, Brocade recommends that the maximum number of PoE or PoE+ ports of the external power supply must not exceed the maximum number of PoE or PoE+ ports of the internal power supply capability of each ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device. For more information about the maximum number of PoE or PoE+ ports supported with the internal power supply of a device, refer to Table 6 on page 11. For example, an ICX 6450-48P device with two EPS connectors must be connected to the ICX 6400-EPS1500. If you increase the maximum number of PoE or PoE+ ports that can be supported in each ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device, the ICX 6400-EPS1500 cannot guarantee the devices are protected by the backup power source if the internal power supply fails. The ICX 6400-EPS1500 will not have enough power to sustain the failed internal power supply. In this case, the device can go down even with the ICX 6400-EPS1500 connected. The ICX 6400-EPS1500 has three DC output ports: EPS OUT 1, EPS OUT 2, and EPS OUT 3. Each port supplies 65 W of +12 VDC of DC power, and 370 W of 54 VDC of PoE power. The ICX 6400-EPS1500 is powered on when it is connected to an active AC power source. The ICX 6400-EPS1500 DC cable is hot-pluggable. You must pay attention to the PoE power usage to ensure that the devices are protected before removing the EPS connectors or AC power cords. The following devices are supported by the Brocade ICX 6400-EPS1500:

FastIron Configuration Guide. Ch 1. Management Applications FastIron Configuration Guide, Ch 4 Security Access

PC or terminal attachment
You can access the CLI by attaching a serial cable to the console port. After you assign an IP address, you can access the system through Telnet, the Web management interface, or Brocade Network Advisor. Complete the following steps to attach a management station to the console port. 1. Connect a PC or terminal to the console (RJ45 serial port) of the device. To connect the console port to a DB-9 port, you need an RJ45 to DB-9 adapter. For information about locating the serial port, refer to Network and management interfaces on page 4, The serial port has an RJ45 connector. For port pinout information, refer to Pinouts and signalling on page 75.

NOTE

You must run a terminal emulation program on the PC. 2. Launch the terminal emulation program and set the following session parameters:

Baud: 9600 bps Data bits: 8 Parity: None Stop bits: 1 Flow control: None

The console serial communication port serves as a connection point for management by a PC or SNMP workstation. When you establish the serial connection to the system, press Enter to display the CLI prompt in the terminal emulation window, as shown in the following example.
Brocade>

If you see this prompt, you are connected to the system and can proceed to Password assignment on page 45. You can customize the prompt by changing the system name. For more information, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide. If you do not see the prompt, make sure the cable is securely connected to your PC and to the Brocade system.

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

Password assignment

Check the settings in your terminal emulation program. In addition to the previously configured session settings, make sure the terminal emulation session is running on the same serial port you attached to the Brocade system.

Password assignment
By default, the CLI is not protected by passwords. To secure CLI access, Brocade strongly recommends assigning passwords. Refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide. You cannot assign a password using the Web management interface. You can assign passwords using Brocade Network Advisor if an enable password for a Super User has been configured on the device. The CLI contains the following access levels:

NOTE

User EXEC The level you enter when you first start a CLI session. At this level, you can view
some system information but you cannot configure system or port parameters.

Privileged EXEC This level is also called the Enable level and can be secured by a password.
You can perform tasks such as managing files on the flash module, saving the system configuration to flash, and clearing caches at this level.

CONFIG The configuration level. This level allows you to configure the system IP address and
configure switching and routing features. To access the CONFIG mode, you must already be logged in to the Privileged EXEC level. You can set the following levels of Enable passwords:

Super User Allows complete read-and-write access to the system. This is generally for system
administrators and is the only password level that allows you to configure passwords.

NOTE

You must set a Super User password before you can set other types of passwords.

Port Configuration Allows read-and-write access for specific ports but not for global
(system-wide) parameters.

Read-Only Allows access to the Privileged EXEC mode and CONFIG mode but only with read
access.

Assigning passwords
Complete the following steps to set passwords. Depending on the device you purchased, and the code (Layer 2 or Layer 3) loaded on your system, the router prompt is displayed accordingly. For example, for an ICX 6450-48P device running Layer 3 code on the device, the router prompt displays ICX6450-48P Router> at the CLI level. 1. At the opening CLI prompt, enter the following command to change to the Privileged EXEC mode:
Brocade> enable

NOTE

2. Access the CONFIG level of the CLI by entering the following command:

45

IP address configuration

Brocade# configure terminal

3. Enter the following command to set the Super User password:


Brocade(config)# enable super-user-password joe

NOTE

You must set the Super User password before you can set other types of passwords. 4. Enter the following commands to set the port configuration and read-only passwords:
Brocade(config)# enable port-config-password john Brocade(config)# enable read-only-password sam

NOTE

If you forget your Super User password, refer to Recovering from a lost password on page 46. Syntax: enable super-user-password <text>| read-only-password <text>| port-config-password <text> Passwords can be up to 32 characters long.

Recovering from a lost password


By default, the CLI does not require passwords. However, if a password has been configured for the device but the password has been lost, you can regain Super User access to the device using the following procedure.

NOTE
Recovery from a lost password requires direct access to the serial port and a system reset. 1. Start a CLI session over the serial interface to the Brocade device. 2. Reboot the device. 3. While the system is booting, before the initial system prompt appears, enter b to enter the boot monitor mode. 4. Enter no password. (You cannot abbreviate this command.) 5. Enter boot. This command causes the device to bypass the system password check. After the console prompt reappears, assign a new password. Syntax: [no] password Syntax: boot

IP address configuration
You must configure at least one IP address using the serial connection to the CLI before you can manage the system using the other management interfaces. Brocade devices support both classical IP network masks (Class A, B, and C subnet masks, and so on) and Classless Interdomain Routing (CIDR) network prefix masks.

46

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

IP address configuration

To enter a classical IP network mask, enter the mask in IP address format. For example, enter
209.157.22.99 255.255.255.0 for an IP address with a Class C subnet mask.

To enter a prefix number for a network mask, enter a forward slash (/) and the number of bits
in the mask immediately after the IP address. For example, enter 209.157.22.99/24 for an IP address that has a network mask with 24 significant (mask) bits. By default, the CLI displays network masks in classical IP address format (for example, 255.255.255.0). You can change the display to the prefix format. Refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.

Devices running Layer 2 software


NOTE
The ICX 6430 device supports only switch code. The ICX 6450 device supports both switch and router code. Use the following procedure to configure an IP address on a device running Layer 2 software. 1. At the opening CLI prompt, enter enable.
Brocade> enable

2. Enter the following command at the Privileged EXEC level prompt, and then press Enter. This command erases the factory test configuration if still present.
Brocade# erase startup-config

CAUTION Use the erase startup-config command only for new systems. If you enter this command on a system you have already configured, the command erases the configuration. If you accidentally do erase the configuration on a configured system, enter the write memory command to save the running configuration to the startup-config file. 3. Access the configuration level of the CLI by entering the following command:
Brocade# configure terminal (Privileged EXEC Level) Brocade(config)# (Global CONFIG Level)

4. Configure the IP address and mask for the device.


Brocade(config)# ip address 192.22.3.44 255.255.255.0

5. Set a default gateway address for the device.


Brocade(config)# ip default-gateway 192.22.3.1

NOTE

You do not need to assign a default gateway address for single subnet networks. Syntax: [no] ip address <ip-addr> <ip-mask> or <ip-addr>/<mask-bits> Syntax: ip default-gateway <ip-addr>

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

47

IP address configuration

Devices running Layer 3 software


Before attaching equipment to a Brocade ICX 6450 router, you must assign an interface IP address to the subnet on which the router will be located. You must use the serial connection to assign the first IP address. For subsequent addresses, you also can use the CLI through Telnet or the Web management interface. By default, you can configure up to 24 IP interfaces on each port, virtual interface, and loopback interface. You can increase this amount to up to 64 IP subnet addresses per port by increasing the size of the subnet-per-interface table. The following procedure shows how to add an IP address and mask to a router port. 1. At the opening CLI prompt, enter enable.
Brocade> enable

2. Enter the following command at the CLI Privileged EXEC level prompt, and then press Enter. This command erases the factory test configuration if still present.
Brocade# erase startup-config

CAUTION Use the erase startup-config command only for new systems. If you enter this command on a system you have already configured, the command erases the configuration. If you accidentally do erase the configuration on a configured system, enter the write memory command to save the running configuration to the startup-config file. 3. Access the configuration level of the CLI by entering the following command.
Brocade# configure terminalPrivileged EXEC Level Brocade(config)# Global CONFIG Level

4. Configure the IP addresses and mask addresses for the interfaces on the router.
Brocade(config)# interface ethernet 2 Brocade(config-if-e1000-2)# ip address 192.22.3.44 255.255.255.0

NOTE

You can use the ip address <ip-addr>/<mask-bits> command if you know the subnet mask length. In the example in step 4, you could enter ip address 192.22.3.44/24. Syntax: [no] ip address <ip-addr> <ip-mask> [secondary] or <ip-addr>/<mask-bits> [secondary] Use the secondary parameter if you have already configured an IP address within the same subnet on the interface.

Configuring IP parameters for devices running Layer 3 software


This section describes how to configure IP parameters for devices running Layer 3 software. Configuring IP addresses You can configure an IP address on the following types of Layer 3 interfaces:

48

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

IP address configuration

Ethernet port Virtual routing interface (also called a Virtual Ethernet or VE) Loopback interface
By default, you can have up to 24 IP addresses on each interface, but you can increase this number to 128 IP addresses. Once you configure a virtual routing interface on a VLAN, you cannot configure Layer 3 interface parameters on individual ports in the VLAN. Instead, you must configure the parameters on the virtual routing interface itself. Assigning an IP address to an Ethernet port Enter the following commands to assign an IP address to port 1/1/1.
Brocade(config)# interface ethernet 1/1/1 Brocade(config-if-1/1/1)# ip address 192.45.6.1 255.255.255.0

NOTE

You also can enter the IP address and mask in CIDR format, as follows:
Brocade(config-if-1/1/1)# ip address 192.45.6.1/24

Syntax: [no] ip address <ip-addr> <ip-mask> or <ip-addr>/<mask-bits> Assigning an IP address to a loopback interface Loopback interfaces are always up, regardless of the states of physical interfaces. They can add stability to the network because they are not subject to route flap problems that can occur due to unstable links between a Layer 3 device and other devices. You can configure up to four loopback interfaces on a Layer 3 device. You can add up to 24 IP addresses to each loopback interface.

NOTE
If you configure the device to use a loopback interface to communicate with a BGP4 neighbor, you must also configure a loopback interface on the neighbor and configure the neighbor to use that loopback interface to communicate with the Brocade device. To add a loopback interface, enter commands such as those shown in the following example:
Brocade(config)# exit Brocade(config)# interface loopback 1 Brocade(config-lbif-1)# ip address 10.0.0.1/24

Syntax: interface loopback <num> The <num> parameter specifies the virtual interface number. You can specify from 1 through the maximum number of virtual interfaces supported on the device. To display the maximum number of virtual interfaces supported on the device, enter the show default values command. Assigning an IP address to a virtual routing interface A virtual interface is a logical port associated with a Layer 3 Virtual LAN (VLAN) configured on a Layer 3 device. You can configure routing parameters on the virtual interface to enable the Layer 3 device to route protocol traffic from one Layer 3 VLAN to the other, without using an external router.

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

49

Connecting network devices

The device uses the lowest MAC address on the device (the MAC address of port 1 or 1/1/1) as the MAC address for all ports within all virtual interfaces you configure on the device. Enter commands similar to the following to add a virtual interface to a VLAN and configure an IP address on the interface.
Brocade(config)# vlan 2 name IP-Subnet_1.1.2.1/24 Brocade(config-vlan-2)# untag 1/1/1 to 1/1/4 Brocade(config-vlan-2)# router-interface ve1 Brocade(config-vlan-2)# interface ve1 Brocade(config-vif-1)# ip address 1.1.2.1/24

NOTE

The first two commands in this example create a Layer 3 protocol-based VLAN named IP-Subnet_1.1.2.1/24 and add a range of untagged ports to the VLAN. The router-interface command creates virtual interface 1 as the routing interface for the VLAN. The last two commands change to the interface configuration level for the virtual interface and assign an IP address to the interface. Syntax: router-interface ve <num> Syntax: interface ve <num>

Deleting an IP address
Enter a command similar to the following to delete an IP address.
Brocade(config-if-1/1/1)# no ip address 1.1.2.1

This command deletes IP address 1.1.2.1. You do not need to enter the subnet mask. To delete all IP addresses from an interface, enter the following command.
Brocade(config-if-1/1/1)# no ip address *

Syntax: no ip address <ip-addr> | *

Connecting network devices


Brocade devices support connections to other vendors routers, switches, and hubs, as well other Brocade devices.

Cable specifications
For information about supported transceivers and cable lengths and types, refer to the following Brocade websites at: http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/data_sheets/product_data_sheets/Optics_ DS.pdf

Connecting to Ethernet or Fast Ethernet hubs


For copper connections to Ethernet hubs, a 10/100Base-TX or 1000Base-T switch, or another Brocade device, a crossover cable is required (Figure 41 and Figure 42). If the hub is equipped with an uplink port, it requires a straight-through cable instead of a crossover cable.

NOTE
The 802.3ab standard (automatic MDI or MDIX detection) calls for automatic negotiation of the connection between two 1000Base-T ports. In this case, a straight-through cable may work just as well as a crossover cable. For more information about this feature, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.

Connecting to workstations, servers, or routers


Straight-through UTP cabling is required for direct UTP attachment to workstations, servers, or routers using network interface cards (NICs). Fiber cabling is required for direct attachment to Gigabit NICs or switches and routers through fiber ports. Refer to Connecting a network device to a fiber port on page 52.

Automatic MDI or MDIX detection


All 10/100 and 1000 Mbps Ethernet copper ports on the devices support automatic Media Dependent Interface (MDI) and Media Dependent Interface Crossover (MDIX) detection. This feature is enabled on all 10/100 and Mbps copper ports by default. For each port, you can disable auto-MDI or MDIX, designate the port as an MDI port, or designate the port as an MDIX port. For more information about this feature and how to configure it, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.

Connecting a network device to a fiber port


For direct attachment from the device to a Gbps NIC, switch, or router, using a fiber-optic transceiver, you need fiber cabling with an LC connector. To connect the device to another network device using a fiber port, you must perform the following tasks:

Install a fiber-optic transceiver (SFP or SFP+). Cable the fiber-optic transceiver.


For instructions on installing fiber-optic transceivers, refer to Installing a new copper or fiber-optic transceiver on page 67.

52

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

Troubleshooting network connections

For instructions on cabling a fiber-optic transceiver, refer to Cabling a fiber-optic transceiver on page 68. For instructions on cleaning a fiber-optic module, refer to Cleaning the fiber-optic connectors on page 68.

Troubleshooting network connections


For the indicated port, verify that both ends of the cabling (at the device and the connected
device) are snug.

Verify that the device and the connected device are both powered on and operating correctly. Verify that you have used the correct cable type for the connection: - For twisted-pair connections to an end node, use straight-through cabling. - For fiber-optic connections, verify that the transmit port on the device is connected to the
receive port on the connected device, and that the receive port on the device is connected to the transmit port on the connected device.

Use the CLI to verify that the port has not been disabled through a configuration change. If you
have configured an IP address on the device, you also can use the Web management interface or Brocade Network Advisor.

If the other procedures do not resolve the problem, try using a different port or a different
cable.

If a 1-Gbps optic transceiver is inserted into a ICX 6450 device, you must configure the port
using the speed-duplex 1000-full-master command at the interface level.

Using VCT to diagnose a cable


The ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 devices support Virtual Cable Test (VCT) technology. VCT technology enables you to diagnose a conductor (wire or cable) by sending a pulsed signal into the conductor, and then examining the reflection of that pulse. This method of cable analysis is referred to as Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR). By examining the reflection, the device can detect and report cable statistics such as local and remote link pair, cable length, and link status.

Configuration notes
This feature is supported on copper ports only. It is not supported on fiber ports. The port to which the cable is connected must be enabled when you issue the command to
diagnose the cable. If the port is disabled, the command is rejected.

If the port is operating at 100 Mbps half-duplex, the TDR test on one pair will fail. If the remote pair is set to forced 100 Mbps, any change in MDI or MDIX may cause the device
to interpret the Multilevel Threshold-3 (MLT-3) as a reflected pulse, in which case, the device will report a faulty condition. In this case, Brocade recommends that you run the TDR test a few times for accurate results.

Command syntax
To diagnose a cable using TDR, enter a command such as the following at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI.
Brocade# phy cable-diag tdr 1/1/1

Troubleshooting network connections

This command diagnoses the cable attached to port 1/1/1. Syntax: phy cable-diag tdr <port-num>

Viewing the results of the cable analysis


To display the results of the cable analysis, enter a command similar to the following at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI.
Brocade# show cable-diag tdr 1/1/1 Port Speed Local pair Pair Length --------- ----- ---------- ----------1/1/1 1000M Pair A <50M Pair B <50M Pair C <50M Pair D <50M Remote pair ----------Pair B Pair A Pair D Pair C Pair status ----------Terminated Terminated Terminated Terminated

Digital optical monitoring


10 Gbps optical transceivers are not supported on ICX 6430 devices. You can configure your device to monitor optical transceivers in the system, either globally or by specified port. When this feature is enabled, the system monitors the temperature and signal power levels for the optical transceivers in the specified ports. Console messages and syslog messages are sent when optical operating conditions fall below or rise above the SFP and SFP+ manufacturers recommended thresholds. For more information about digital optical monitoring, refer to the FastIron Configuration Guide.

Managing temperature settings


This section describes how to display temperature settings on the device and how to change the temperature warning levels.

Using the temperature sensor


The device contains temperature sensors that the software reads based on a configurable device poll time. Except for the ICX 6430-24 model, the device has two automatic speed fan control settings based on the temperature. To protect the device from overheating, the following temperature threshold levels exist:

The warning level is the temperature at which the device generates a syslog message and
SNMP trap. It is configurable.

The shutdown level is the temperature at which the device reboots. It is set by the device and is
not configurable. The software reads the temperature sensors based on a configurable device poll time. If the temperature equals or exceeds the shutdown temperature for five consecutive polls by the software, the software will reboot the device to prevent damage.

Managing temperature settings

Displaying the temperature


To display the temperature of a device, enter the show chassis command at any level of the CLI. The show chassis command displays the power supply status, and temperature threshold levels for fan speed.

NOTE
The displayed temperature reflects the temperature of the board inside the device.
Brocade# show chassis The stack unit 1 chassis info: Power supply 1 (NA - AC - Regular) present, status ok Power supply 2 not present Fan 1 ok, speed (auto): [[1]]<->2 Fan 2 ok, speed (auto): [[1]]<->2 Fan controlled temperature: 36.0 deg-C Fan speed switching temperature thresholds: Speed 1: NM<----->65 deg-C Speed 2: 60<-----> 82 deg-C (shutdown) Sensor B Temperature Readings: Current temperature : 34.0 deg-C Sensor A Temperature Readings: Current temperature : 36.0 deg-C Warning level.......: 70.0 deg-C Shutdown level......: 82.0 deg-C Boot Prom MAC : 748e.f882.07c0 Management MAC: 748e.f882.07c0

Syntax: show chassis

=====

Displaying syslog messages for temperature


The software sends a syslog message and an SNMP trap if the temperature crosses the warning or shutdown thresholds. The following method describes how to view the system log on the device. If you have configured the device to use a syslog server or SNMP trap receiver, refer to the documentation for the server or receiver.

60

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

Managing temperature settings

To display the system log, enter the show log command at any CLI level.
Brocade# show log Syslog logging: enabled (0 messages dropped, 0 flushes, 0 overruns) Buffer logging: level ACDMEINW, 20 messages logged level code: A=alert C=critical D=debugging M=emergency E=error I=informational N=notification W=warning

Syntax: show log

Temperature threshold levels


The fan speed settings are set by the device, and are not configurable. Table 13 describes the temperature thresholds in Celsius of the fan speeds for the Brocade devices. By default, the warning temperature level is 10 degrees less than the critical temperature level. The fan speed is high when the temperature level for a device reaches a high threshold level. The fan speed is decreased when the temperature reaches a low threshold level.

NOTE
For the ICX 6430-24 device, the low and high temperature thresholds (TA and TB) are used only for software settings because the ICX 6430-24 model is a fanless device. There are no fan speed control settings on the ICX 6430-24 device.

Changing the temperature warning level


To change the temperature at which the device sends a syslog message and an SNMP trap, enter a command similar to the following at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI.
Brocade# temperature warning 1 85

Syntax: temperature warning <stack-id> <value> The <stack-id> can be a value from 1 through 8. The <value> variable is the temperature warning level, in Celsius. You cannot set this level higher than the temperature shutdown level, which is automatically set by the device.

Temperature shutdown levels


When the temperature crosses the critical (shutdown) threshold levels, the device will reset. The following warning message is displayed.
!!! Temperature is over shutdown level, please shutdown your stack unit 1 to avoid hw damage!!!

ATTENTION
Brocade recommends that you shut down your stack unit to avoid any hardware damage.

Changing the temperature poll time


By default, the software polls the temperature sensor every 60 seconds to get the current temperature. This poll rate is controlled by the device poll time, which also controls how often the software polls other system components. To change the poll time, enter a command similar to the following at the global CONFIG level.
Brocade(config)# chassis poll-time 200

Syntax: chassis poll-time <value> The <value> variable can be from 0 through 65535 seconds.

Displaying CPU usage

Displaying CPU usage


You can display the amount of the CPU in use. To do so, enter the show cpu command at any level of the CLI.
Brocade#show cpu 20 percent busy, from 318 sec ago 1 sec avg: 2 percent busy 5 sec avg: 1 percent busy 60 sec avg: 1 percent busy 300 sec avg: 1 percent busy

Syntax: show cpu

Removing MAC address entries


You can remove the following types of learned MAC address entries from the system MAC address table:

All MAC address entries All MAC address entries for a specified Ethernet port All MAC address entries for a specified VLAN A specified MAC address entry in all VLANs

For example, to remove entries for the MAC address 000d.cb80.00d0 in all VLANs, enter the following command at the Privileged EXEC level of the CLI.
Brocade# clear mac-address 000d.cb80.00d0

Syntax: clear mac-address <mac-address> | ethernet <port-num> | vlan <number> If you enter the clear mac-address command without any parameters, the software removes all MAC entries. Use the <mac-address> variable to remove a specified MAC address from all VLANs. Specify the MAC address in the following format: HHHH.HHHH.HHHH. Use the ethernet <port-num> parameter to remove all MAC addresses for a specified Ethernet port. Use the vlan <number> parameter to remove all MAC addresses for a specified VLAN.

Hardware maintenance schedule


DANGER The procedures in this manual are for qualified service personnel. The ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 device requires minimal maintenance for the hardware components. Brocade recommends cleaning the fiber-optic connectors on a fiber-optic port and the connected fiber cable each time you disconnect the cable.

Copper or fiber-optic module replacement


You can replace the copper and fiber-optic modules (SFP transceivers). You can remove an SFP transceiver from a slot and replace it with a new one while the ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device is powered on and running. This section provides information about the following tasks:

Removing a copper or fiber-optic module Installing a new copper or fiber-optic transceiver Cabling a fiber-optic module Cleaning a fiber-optic module

Removing a copper or fiber-optic module


You can remove a copper or fiber SFP transceiver from a slot while the ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device is powered on and running.

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

65

Copper or fiber-optic module replacement

While removing a copper or fiber-optic module, be sure to wear an ESD wrist strap with a plug that can be inserted in the ESD connector on the ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device.

DANGER For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 megaohm resistor. To remove a copper or fiber-optic module from an SFP slot, do the following. 1. Put on the ESD wrist strap and ground yourself by attaching the clip end to a metal surface (such as an equipment rack). 2. Disconnect the copper or fiber cable connector from the port connector. 3. Unlock the copper or fiber-optic module by pulling the bail latch forward, away from the front panel of the module. This unlocks the module from the front panel. Refer to Figure 43.

NOTE

On 1000Base-SX ports, the bail latch is enclosed in a black sleeve, and on 1000Base-LX ports, the bail latch is enclosed in a blue sleeve.

FIGURE 43

Unlocking the bail latch

Bail latch

NOTE

The bail latch may be attached to either the top or the bottom of the SFP transceiver. 4. Grasp the bail latch and pull the copper or fiber-optic module out of the port. Refer to Figure 44.

FIGURE 44

Removing the fiber-optic module

5. Store the copper or fiber-optic module in a safe, static-free place or in an anti-static bag. 6. Install a new copper or fiber-optic transceiver in the port. For information about performing this task, refer to Installing a new copper or fiber-optic transceiver on page 67.

Brocade ICX 6430 and ICX 6450 Stackable Switches Hardware Installation Guide 53-1002505-02

Copper or fiber-optic module replacement

Installing a new copper or fiber-optic transceiver


You can install a new fiber-optic transceiver in an SFP or SFP+ slot while the device is powered on and running. While installing a transceiver, wear an ESD wrist strap with a plug that can be inserted in the ESD connector on the ICX 6430 or ICX 6450 device.

NOTE
If the E1MG-TX SFP transceiver is inserted into the ICX 6450 device, the link may go down on the fiber ports. This is seen during bootup or speed change from 10-Gbps to 1-Gbps port speed. The workaround is to disable the port and then re-enable the port through the CLI, or unplug and plug in the cable.

DANGER For safety reasons, the ESD wrist strap should contain a series 1 megohm resistor.

DANGER All fiber-optic interfaces use Class 1 lasers. Perform the following steps to install a fiber-optic transceiver. 1. Put on the ESD wrist strap and ground yourself by attaching the clip end to a metal surface (such as an equipment rack) to act as the ground. 2. Remove the new transceiver from the protective packaging. 3. Gently insert the transceiver into the slot until it clicks into place, as illustrated in Figure 45. Transceivers are keyed to prevent incorrect insertion.

Cabling a fiber-optic transceiver


Perform the following steps to cable a fiber-optic transceiver. 1. Remove the protective covering from the fiber-optic port connectors and store the covering for future use.

NOTE

Before cabling a fiber-optic transceiver, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning the cable connectors and the port connectors. For more information, refer to Cleaning the fiber-optic connectors on page 68. 2. Gently insert the cable connector (a tab on each connector should face upward) into the transceiver connector until the tabs lock into place. 3. Observe the link and active LEDs to determine if the network connections are functioning properly. For more information about the LED indicators, refer to Table 12.

Cleaning the fiber-optic connectors


To avoid problems with the connection between the fiber-optic transceiver (SFP, SFP+, or mini-GBIC) and the fiber cable connectors, Brocade strongly recommends cleaning both connectors each time you disconnect and reconnect them. Dust can accumulate in the connectors and cause problems, such as reducing the optic launch power. To clean the fiber cable connectors, Brocade recommends using a fiber-optic reel-type cleaner. When not using an SFP connector, make sure to keep the protective covering in place.

Power LED is Off

Internal power supply is disconnected. Check connections between the device, the power cord, and the wall outlet. Contact Technical Support.

Power LED is Yellow Diag LED is Yellow

Internal power supply has failed. Contact Technical Support. The device self test has detected a fault. Power cycle the device to try and clear the condition. If the condition persists, contact Technical Support. Verify that the device and attached device are powered on. Be sure the cable is plugged into both the device and corresponding device. Verify that the proper cable type is used and its length does not exceed specified limits. Check the adapter on the attached device and cable connections for possible defects. Replace the defective adapter or cable if necessary.

Link LED is Off

Power and cooling problems


If the power indicator does not turn on when the power cord is plugged in, you may have a problem with the power outlet, power cord, or internal power supply. However, if the unit powers off after running for a while, check for loose power connections, power losses or surges at the power outlet, and verify that the fans on the unit are unobstructed and running prior to shutdown. If you still cannot isolate the problem, then the internal power supply may be defective. In this case, contact Technical Support for assistance.

Installation
Verify that all system components have been properly installed. If one or more components appear to be malfunctioning (such as the power cord or network cabling), test them in an alternate environment where you are sure that all the other components are functioning properly.

Diagnosing switch indicators

In-band access
You can access the management agent in the device from anywhere within the attached network using Telnet, a Web browser, or other network management software. However, you must first configure the device with a valid IP address, subnet mask, and default gateway. If you have trouble establishing a link to the management agent, check to see if you have a valid network connection. Then verify that you entered the correct IP address. Also, be sure the port through which you are connecting to the device has not been disabled. If it has not been disabled, then check the network cabling that runs between your remote location and the device.

CAUTION

Ensure that the device does not overload the power circuits, wiring, and over-current protection. To determine the possibility of overloading the supply circuits, add the ampere (amp) ratings of all devices installed on the same circuit as the device. Compare this total with the rating limit for the circuit. The maximum ampere ratings are usually printed on the devices near the input power connectors. Stromkreise, Verdrahtung und berlastschutz drfen nicht durch das Gert berbelastet werden. Addieren Sie die Nennstromleistung (in Ampere) aller Gerte, die am selben Stromkreis wie das Gert installiert sind. Somit knnen Sie feststellen, ob die Gefahr einer berbelastung der Versorgungsstromkreise vorliegt. Vergleichen Sie diese Summe mit der Nennstromgrenze des Stromkreises. Die Hchstnennstrme (in Ampere) stehen normalerweise auf der Gerterckseite neben den Eingangsstromanschlssen. Assurez-vous que le dispositif ne risque pas de surcharger les circuits d'alimentation, le cblage et la protection de surintensit. Pour dterminer le risque de surcharge des circuits d'alimentation, additionnez l'intensit nominale (ampres) de tous les dispositifs installs sur le mme circuit que le dispositif en question. Comparez alors ce total avec la limite de charge du circuit. L'intensit nominale maximum en ampres est gnralement imprime sur chaque dispositif prs des connecteurs d'entre d'alimentation. Verifique que el instrumento no sobrecargue los circuitos de corriente, el cableado y la proteccin para sobrecargas. Para determinar la posibilidad de sobrecarga en los circuitos de suministros, aada las capacidades nominales de corriente (amp) de todos los instrumentos instalados en el mismo circuito que el instrumento. Compare esta suma con el lmite nominal para el circuito. Las capacidades nominales de corriente mximas estn generalmente impresas en los instrumentos, cerca de los conectores de corriente de entrada.

CAUTION

Use the erase startup-config command only for new systems. If you enter this command on a system you have already configured, the command erases the configuration. If you accidentally do erase the configuration on a configured system, enter the write memory command to save the running configuration to the startup-config file. Verwenden Sie den Befehl "Erase startup-config" (Lschen Startup-Konfig) nur fr neue Systeme. Wenn Sie diesen Befehl in ein bereits konfiguriertes System eingeben, lscht der Befehl die Konfiguration. Falls Sie aus Versehen die Konfiguration eines bereits konfigurierten Systems lschen, geben Sie den Befehl "Write Memory" (Speicher schreiben) ein, um die laufende Konfiguration in der Startup-Konfig-Datei zu speichern. N'utilisez la commande erase startup-config que pour les nouveaux systmes. Si vous entrez cette commande sur un systme que vous avez dj configur, elle efface la configuration. Si vous effacez la configuration par accident sur un systme configur, entrez la commande write memory pour enregistrer la configuration actuelle dans le fichier startup-config. Use el comando erase startup-config (borrar configuracin de inicio) para sistemas nuevos solamente. Si usted introduce este comando en un sistema que ya ha configurado, el comando borrar la configuracin. Si usted borra accidentalmente la configuracin en un sistema ya configurado, introduzca el comando write memory (escribir memoria) para guardar la configuracin en ejecucin en el archivo startup-config.
