  • Page 15: Error Detection, Reporting, And Serviceability

    Error detection, reporting, and serviceability The Edge Switch provides the following error-detection, reporting, and serviceability features: • Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) on Edge Switch FRUs and adjacent to Fibre Channel ports that provide visual indicators of hardware status or malfunctions. • FRUs—small form-factor pluggable (SFP) optical transceivers, power supplies, and cooling fans that are removed or replaced without disrupting Edge Switch or Fibre Channel link operation.

  • Page 16: Zoning

    NOTE: For more information about SNMP support provided by HP products, see the HP StorageWorks SNMP reference guide for Directors and Edge Switches. Zoning The Edge Switch supports a name server zoning feature that partitions attached devices into restricted-access groups called zones. Devices in the same zone can recognize and communicate with each other through switched port-to-port connections.

    10/100 Mbps LAN segment. One hub port is required to connect the HAFM appliance, and one hub port is required to connect each Edge Switch. A combination of up to 48 HP Edge Switches can be configured and managed by a single HAFM appliance; therefore, multiple hubs may be required to provide sufficient port connections.

  • Page 33

    HP recommends using a star or hub-and-spoke topology when connecting multiple hubs. The HAFM appliance must be connected to the center hub, and there should never be more than two hubs between the HAFM appliance and any Edge Switch. See the hub manufacturer’s documentation for more detailed information.
