    WARNING!  Connect the grounding cable to the grounding system in the equipment room. Do not connect it to a fire main or lightning rod.  The power interface and grounding terminals in this section are for illustration only. The 5120 24G PoE+ (370W) SI switch comes with a ring terminal for connecting to a grounding strip. For other switch models, you must prepare ring terminals yourself.

  • Page 22: Setting Terminal Parameters

    NOTE:  Identify the mark on the console port and make sure you are connecting to the correct port.  The serial ports on PCs do not support hot swapping. To connect a PC to an operating switch, first connect the PC end. To disconnect a PC from an operating switch, first disconnect the switch end. 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.

  • Page 23: Setting Up An Irf Fabric

    Setting up an IRF fabric You can use Hewlett Packard Enterprise Intelligent Resilient Framework (IRF) technology to connect and virtualize 5120 SI switches into a virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" or "IRF virtual device" for flattened network topology, and high availability, scalability, and manageability.

    To set up an IRF fabric: Step Description Plan the installation site and IRF fabric setup parameters:  Planning IRF fabric size and the installation site  Identifying the master switch and planning IRF member IDs Plan IRF fabric setup ...

  • Page 25: Planning Irf Topology And Connections

    Planning IRF topology and connections You can create an IRF fabric in daisy chain topology, or more reliably, ring topology. In ring topology, the failure of one IRF link does not cause the IRF fabric to split as in daisy chain topology. Rather, the IRF fabric changes to a daisy chain topology without interrupting network services.

  • Page 26: Identifying Physical Irf Ports On The Member Switches

    Identifying physical IRF ports on the member switches Identify the physical IRF ports on the member switches according to your topology and connection scheme. All network ports can be used for IRF connection. As a best practice, use Gigabit SFP ports and HPE 3600 Switch SFP Stacking Kit cables for IRF connection.

  • Page 27: Configuring Basic Irf Settings

    Configuring basic IRF settings After you install the IRF member switches, power on the switches, and log in to each IRF member switch (see the fundamentals configuration guide for your switch) to configure their member IDs, member priorities, and IRF port bindings. Follow these guidelines when you configure the neighboring switches: ...

  • Page 28: Maintenance And Troubleshooting

    Maintenance and troubleshooting Power supply failure The 5120 SI switches use built-in power supplies. The 5120 24G PoE+ (370W) SI switch support three power input modes: AC input, RPS DC input, and concurrent AC and RPS DC inputs. All other 5120 SI switches support only AC power input.

  • Page 29: Configuration Terminal Problems

    If the power LED is on but the RPS status LED is off, an RPS input failure has occurred. Verify the following items: The switch is securely connected to the RPS.  The RPS is correctly working.  NOTE: If the problem persists, contact the Hewlett Packard Enterprise technical support for help. Configuration terminal problems If the configuration environment setup is correct, the configuration terminal displays booting information when the switch is powered on.
