  • Page 12: Attaching The Slide Rails To The Rack

    Figure 7 Attaching the front mounting brackets/chassis rails to the chassis Attaching the slide rails to the rack Identify the rack attachment position for the slide rails. Install cage nuts (user-supplied) in the mounting holes in the rack posts. Align the screw holes in one slide rail with the cage nuts in the rack post on one side, and use screws (user-supplied) to attach the slide rail to the rack, as shown in Figure Repeat the preceding step to attach the other slide rail to the rack post on the other side.
  • Page 13 To mount the switch in the rack: Wear an ESD-preventive wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is well grounded. Verify that the mounting brackets and chassis rails have been securely attached to the switch chassis. Verify that the slide rails have been correctly attached to the rear rack posts.
  • Page 14: Grounding The Switch

    Figure 10 Mounting the switch in the rack (2) Grounding the switch WARNING! Correctly connecting the switch grounding cable is crucial to lightning protection and EMI protection. The power input end of the switch has a noise filter, whose central ground is directly connected to the chassis to form the chassis ground (commonly known as PGND).

  • Page 30: Setting Up An Irf Fabric

    Setting up an IRF fabric You can use HP IRF technology to connect and virtualize HP 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 multiple switches, use QSFP+ ports.
  • Page 31: Planning Irf Fabric Setup

    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 HP FlexFabric 5930 switches into the IRF fabric to increase the switching capacity without any topology change or replacement.

  • Page 33: Identifying Physical Irf Ports On The Member Switches

    All QSFP+ ports on the HP FlexFabric 5930 switch can be used for IRF connections. Planning the cabling scheme For the HP FlexFabric 5930 switches, use QSFP+ cables, or QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers to connect the IRF member switches. If the IRF member switches are far away from one another, choose the QSFP+ transceiver modules with optical fibers.
  • Page 34: 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 HP FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide) to configure their member IDs, member priorities, and IRF port bindings.
  • Page 35: Connecting The Physical Irf Ports

    Create a Layer 3 interface, assign it an IP address, and make sure the IRF fabric and the remote network management station can reach each other. Use Telnet, Web, or SNMP to access the IRF fabric from the network management station. (See HP FlexFabric 5930 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide.) Verify that you can manage all member switches as if they were one node.
