This guide assumes all site preparation has been performed before installing the chassis. Installing the Chassis To install the C7004/C150 and the C7008/C300 chassis, Dell Networking recommends completing the installation procedures in the order presented below. NOTE: Unless stated otherwise, the installation instructions apply to both the C7004/C150 and C7008/C300 chassis.
Follow these steps to install the chassis into a 19-inch equipment rack: Step Task Determine the chassis mounting location in the equipment rack. Orient the bar with the arrows pointing upward. The smooth side of the bar should face outward. Attach the bar to the equipment rack brackets using the mounting screws provided by the rack manufacturer.
Step Task Insert screws (provided with your rack) through the chassis rack- mounting bracket and into the equipment rack, and tighten them. Rack Mounting the C7004/C150 Chassis Rack Mounting the C7008/C300 Chassis Installing the Hardware...
• There are two types of power supplies: Power Supply 1200W-AC and Power Supply 1600W-AC. The minimum and redundant power supplies required to operate are listed in the table below. Dell Networking recommends the redundancy configuration. • The following table lists the PSU requirements for Dell Networking OS version 22.214.171.124 or prior.
For Dell Networking OS version 126.96.36.199, the minimum PSUs required for system power is based on the power requirements of the RPMs, the line cards, and the type of fan tray present in the chassis. System Power Required = Power required for 2 RSMs + Power Required for Fan Tray + Power required for Line cards in the system.
Slide the power supply into the top left-most power supply slot. Dell Networking recommends installing power supplies starting from the left side, top row of the chassis, leaving no blank slots between units. Lower the retaining latch, and tighten it into place.
• RPMs are interchangable between the C7008/C300 and the C7004/C150 only if they are running Dell Networking OS version 188.8.131.52 or later. CAUTION: RPMs are designed to be installed in either the R0 or R1 slot. Do not force RPMs into line cards slots. RPMs are keyed differently than line cards to prevent improper installation.
(SERIES CB)) line cards are interchangeable between the C7008/C300 and C7004/C150 only if the chassis is running Dell Networking OS version 184.108.40.206 or later. • To control airflow for adequate system cooling, personal safety, and EMI containment during operation, blanks are required in empty slots. Yoou must install all chassis slots with operational modules or blanks.
Step Task Rotate the levers toward the card to seat the backplane connectors and line card in place. Push on the knurled section of the levers until the thumb tabs pop up and lock the unit in place. CAUTION: Installing a card without fully engaging the locking mechanism might damage the EMI seal on the card below it when you install that card.
NOTE: The fan tray light emitting diodes (LEDs) remains lit when the chassis is powered up and the fan tray is functioning properly. Power Up Sequence Before you supply power to the chassis, Dell Networking recommends re- inspect your equipment rack and chassis. CAUTION: Never operate the system without a fan tray.
Step Task Verify that the power source complies with the system input power requirements. Energize the remote power source or outlet. On the C7004/C150, toggle the switch on the AC power supplies to the ON (right) position. On the C7008/C300, toggle the switch on the AC power supplies to the ON (top) position.

Installing the Software Navigating CLI Modes The Dell prompt changes to indicate the CLI mode. You must move linearly through the command modes, with the exception of the end command which takes you directly to EXEC Privilege mode; the exit command moves you up one command mode level.
Cable and Adapter Pin Assignments To connect to a terminal port, PC serial port, or a terminal server, use the console port on the RPM to configure and monitor your system. An RJ-45 Ethernet cable is required to connect to the Ethernet port. The console port is an RJ-45 and the pinouts are listed in Table 2-1.

Default Configuration A version of the Dell Networking OS is pre-loaded onto the chassis, however the system is not configured when you power up for the first time (except for the default host name, which is Dell). You must configure the system using the CLI.
Access the System Remotely You can configure the system to access it remotely by Telnet. The systems have a dedicated management port and a management routing table that is separate from the IP routing table. Configuring the system for Telnet is a three-step process: Step Task Configure an IP address for the management port.

Create a VLAN The default virtual local area network (VLAN) is part of the system startup configuration, and is by default, VLAN 1. You may make another VLAN the default VLAN. You cannot delete, disable, or configure the default VLAN (you cannot assign it an IP address), and only untagged interfaces can belong to it.
Step Task Command Syntax Command Mode Assign a switchport to a [tagged | untagged] interface INTERFACE VLAN VLAN. Display all switchports show vlan EXEC Privilege and the VLANs of which they are members. Assign an IP address to a VLAN NOTE: You cannot assign an IP address to the default VLAN, which, by default, is VLAN 1.
