This guide assumes all site preparation has been performed before installing the chassis. Installing the Chassis To install an E-Series chassis, Dell Force10 recommends that you complete the installation procedures in the order presented below. NOTE: Unless stated otherwise, the installation instructions below apply to all of the E-Series chassis.
Step Task Attach the bar to the equipment rack brackets using the mounting screws provided by the rack manufacturer. Installing the Chassis in a Two-Post Rack Step Task If you are center or rear mounting the chassis in a 19-inch rack, make sure that the mounting brackets are properly positioned.
Installing E300 Chassis into Rack Installing E600i and 1200i into Rack Attach a Ground Cable to the Chassis NOTE: The rack installation ears are not suitable for grounding. CAUTION: Grounding conductors must be made of copper. Do not use aluminum conductors. NOTE: Coat the lugs with an anti-oxidant compound prior to crimping.
E300 DC PEM Chassis Ground Step Task Locate the chassis ground connector studs on the PEM front panel. The two studs on the upper left are the ground connection. Ground cable, typically green or green with yellow stripes MAK E GRO UND CON NECT ION FIRS CAU TION - CAU TION - Use copp...
Step Task Attach the grounding cable onto the ground studs. The grounding cable must comply with your local electrical codes in size and color (typically the color is green or green with yellow stripe), NOTE: Grounding cables must be terminated only with a UL- listed 2-hole lug with 1/4-inch holes on 3/4-inch spacing.
E1200i TeraScale and ExaScale AC Chassis Ground Step Task Locate the chassis ground connector nuts on the rear of the chassis. Install the grounding cables to the ground nuts. The grounding cable must comply with your local electrical codes in size and color (typically the color is green or green with yellow stripe).
DC. Unless otherwise stated, each AC and DC power supply for each E-Series system is shipped with a Dell Force10-approved power cord and only that cord should be used to connect the power supply to the appropriate outlet.
WARNING: Electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage can occur when components are mishandled. Always wear an ESD-preventive wrist or foot- heal ground strap when handling chassis components. CAUTION: Before removing and replacing a power supply module, determine if the E300 is in full facility redundancy or non-redundant power. Operating in non-redundant power will require a complete system power off when removing and replacing a power supply.
Step Task For bottom units, ensure that the EMI gasket along the edge of each power supply is compressed smoothly before securing each power supply into place using the captive screws. For top units, it may be necessary to lift the unit slightly to install the captive screws.
NOTE: Please take precautions against over-tightening the screws or nuts on this device. Installing a DC PEM Step Task Turn the remote power source (the circuit breaker panel) to the OFF position. Turn the over current protector (located on the PEM front panel) to the OFF position.
Step Task Replace the safety cover and tighten the captive screw with a #2 Phillips screwdriver. Turn the Over Current Protector to the ON position. Turn the remote power source (the circuit breaker panel) to the ON position. E600i AC Power Modules The E600i requires a minimum of two AC Power Supplies.
Step Task Secure the power supply into place by tightening the two locking screws to 5 in-lbs. Plug an AC power cord into the socket on the front of the unit: Loosen the power cord retainer thumb screw. Rotate the retainer clockwise away from the socket and plug the power cord into the socket.
Step Task Loosen the retaining screw and remove PEM safety cover. Slide the backplane connector end of the PEM into Power Supply Slot 1 or 3. Secure the PEM to the chassis by tighten the two locking screws. E1200i AC Power Modules When installing the AC power supplies in the E1200i system, make note of the following: •...
Step Task Loosen the cord retainers locking screws (if needed) and tilt the AC- cord retainer up approximately 15 degrees and gently slide the cover away from the chassis. Slide the power supplies into their slots until the module front is flush with the shelf front.
WARNING: An external disconnect shall be provided and shall be easily accessible. Dell Force10 recommends that you use a 150A circuit breaker. Use the following steps to install a DC PEM: Step Task Make sure that the remote power source (the circuit breaker panel) is in the OFF position.
Step Task Check that the over-current protector (located on the PEM front panel) is in the OFF position. Energize the remote power source. The Voltage LED should be green. If it is amber, the -48 VDC and Return cables are connected incorrectly or are reversed.
Installing the RPMs and Line Cards CAUTION: Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those specified herein may result in hazardous laser exposure. NOTE: Line cards are hot swappable. Step Task Hold the card by the edges. Avoid touching the printed circuit board and connector pins.
E600i RPMs The E300 system requires the installation of at least one RPM, although two are recommended for redundancy. RPMs are designed to be installed in either the R0 or R1 slot. Do not force RPMs into line card slots. RPMs are keyed differently than line cards to prevent improper installation.
Step Task Remove an SFM from the anti-static packaging. Hold the card by the edges. Avoid touching the printed circuit board and connector pins. Extend the card lever before you insert the card into the slot. Align the SFM with the guide and gently slide it into the slot until you feel the connectors engage with the chassis backplane.
Preparing and Installing RPMs and Line Cards To prolong the life of the EMI seals, begin installing cards in the right-most slot (slot 13), filling the slots leftward (slot 12, then slot 11, then slot 10, and so on). Step Task Remove the line card from its box and carefully remove the line card from the anti-static packaging.
Step Task Rotate the lever to seat the backplane connectors and card in place. Secure each SFM in place by tightening the captive screw. Continue the process for the remaining SFMs. Align any blank panels with the guides and gently slide toward the backplane.
Supplying Power Step Task Energize the remote power source. Flip the switch on the AC power supplies or DC PEM to the ON position. In a DC PEM, the Status LED should be green. In an AC Power Supply, the top Input AC and Output LEDs should be green.
monitor. When the boot process is complete, the card LEDs remain online (green) and the console monitor displays the Command Line Interface (CLI) prompt. NOTE: Do not press any keys or control sequences at any time during the boot process. Doing so may cause the boot process to terminate. CAUTION: Leakage Current (High Touch Current): The AC power cords are secured to the power inlet using the provided bracket.

When an interface is configured, a switchport automatically places it in the Default VLAN as an untagged interface. All switchports must belong to at least one VLAN, so to remove a switchport from the Default VLAN, you must place it as tagged or untagged in some other VLAN, or remove the switchport configuration.
