5930-2Slot+2QSFP+ TAA Switch, HPE 5930-4Slot Switch, and HPE 5930-4Slot TAA Switch are assigned Regulatory Model Numbers (RMNs). The RMNs for these products are listed below. These regulatory numbers should not be confused with the marketing name HPE FlexFabric 5930, or the product codes JH178A, JH187A, JH179A, and JH188A.
Temperature/humidity Maintain appropriate temperature and humidity in the equipment room. • Lasting high relative humidity can cause poor insulation, electricity leakage, mechanical property change of materials, and metal corrosion. • Lasting low relative humidity can cause washer contraction and ESD and cause problems including loose screws and circuit failure.
• Keep the switch far away from radio transmitting stations, radar stations, and high-frequency devices. • Use electromagnetic shielding, for example, shielded interface cables, when necessary. Laser safety WARNING! Do not stare into any fiber port when the switch has power. The laser light emitted from the optical fiber might hurt your eyes.

Grounding the switch with a grounding strip WARNING! Connect the grounding cable to the grounding system in the equipment room. Do not connect it to a fire main or lightning rod. If a grounding strip is available at the installation site, connect the grounding cable to the grounding strip.
• The ground contact in the power outlet is securely connected to the ground in the power distribution room or on the AC transformer side. • The power cord is securely connected to the power outlet. NOTE: If the ground contact in the power outlet is not connected to the ground, report the problem and reconstruct the grounding system.
Finish replacing the fan trays within 1 minute on an HPE 5930-4Slot/HPE 5930-4Slot TAA switch. Installing a fan tray CAUTION: To prevent damage to the fan tray or the connectors on the backplane, insert the fan tray gently. If you encounter a hard resistance while inserting the fan tray, pull out the fan tray and insert it again. Select appropriate fan trays as needed.
Figure 25 Installing an LSWM1BFANSC/LSWM1BFANSCB fan tray Removing a fan tray WARNING! • Ensure electricity safety and never touch the rotating fans when you hot-swap a fan tray. • To prevent an unbalanced fan from causing loud noise, do not touch the fans, even if they are not rotating.
Figure 26 Removing an LSWM1BFANSC/LSWM1BFANSCB fan tray Installing/removing a power supply WARNING! • In power redundancy mode, you can replace a power supply without powering off the switch but must strictly follow the installation and procedures in Figure 27 Figure 28 to avoid any bodily injury or damage to the switch.
• Install filler panels in the empty power supply slots for good ventilation of the switch. The power supply installation procedures are the same for the HPE FlexFabric 5930 switches. This section uses the HPE 5930-32 QSFP+/HPE 5930-32 QSFP+ TAA switch as an example.
When you connect the power cord, always identify the polarity symbol on its wires. The power supply removing procedures are the same for the HPE FlexFabric 5930 switches. This section uses the HPE 5930-32 QSFP+/HPE 5930-32 QSFP+ TAA switch as an example: To remove a power supply: Wear an ESD wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is reliably grounded.

Table 7 Serial console cable pinout RJ-45 Signal DB-9 Signal USB mini console cable A USB mini console cable has a USB mini-Type B connector at one end to connect to the USB mini console port of the switch, and a standard USB Type A connector at the other end to connect to the USB port on the configuration terminal.
Figure 41 Device Driver Installation Wizard Click Continue Anyway if the following dialog box appears. Figure 42 Software Installation Click Finish.
Figure 43 Completing the device driver installation wizard Setting terminal parameters To configure and manage the switch through the console port, you must run a terminal emulator program, HyperTerminal or PuTTY, on your configuration terminal. You can use the emulator program to connect a network device, a Telnet site, or an SSH site.
After the startup completes, you can access the CLI to configure the switch. For more information about the configuration commands and CLI, see HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series Configuration Guide and HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series Command References.
Setting up an IRF fabric You can use HPE IRF technology to connect and virtualize HPE FlexFabric 5930 switches into a large virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" for flattened network topology, and high availability, scalability, and manageability. To set up IRF links between two switches, use the 10-GE or 40-GE ports.
Distribute the IRF member switches in different racks to implement the top-of-rack (ToR) access solution for a data center. As your business grows, you can plug HPE FlexFabric 5930 switches into the IRF fabric to increase the switching capacity without any topology change or replacement.
IRF-port2 IRF-port2 IRF-port1 IRF-port1 IRF-port2 You can provide the following IRF physical connections between HPE FlexFabric 5930 switches: • 10-GE IRF physical connection by connecting 1/10-GE Ethernet ports or SFP+ ports. • 40-GE IRF physical connection by connecting QSFP+ ports.
Identify the 1/10-GE Ethernet ports, SFP+ ports, and QSFP+ ports to be used for IRF connections on the member switches according to your topology and connection scheme. All the 1/10-GE Ethernet ports, SFP+ ports, and QSFP+ ports on the HPE FlexFabric 5930 switch can be used for IRF connections.
IRF port binding before or after connecting IRF physical ports depending on the software release. • Execute the display irf configuration command to verify the basic IRF settings. For more information about configuring basic IRF settings, see HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide. Connecting the physical IRF ports CAUTION: Wear an ESD wrist strap when you connect cables or transceiver modules and optical fibers.
To avoid IP address collision and network problems, configure at least one multi-active detection (MAD) mechanism to detect the presence of multiple identical IRF fabrics and handle collisions. For more information about MAD detection, see HPE FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide.
Maintenance and troubleshooting Power supply failure You can use the LEDs on the power supply to identify a power supply failure. For more information about the LEDs on a power supply, see HPE A58x0AF 650W AC (JC680A) & 650W DC (JC681A) Power Supplies User Guide or HPE FlexFabric Switch 650W 48V Hot Plug NEBS Compliant DC Power Supply (JH336A) User Guide.
No terminal display The configuration terminal has no display when the switch is powered on. To resolve the problem: Verify that the power system is operating correctly. Verify that the console cable has been connected correctly and no fault occurs on the console cable.
