  • Page 15: Edge Switch 2/24 Description

    Introduction The HP StorageWorks Edge Switch 2/24 provides dynamic switched connections between Fibre Channel servers and devices in a storage area network (SAN) environment. SANs introduce the concept of server-to-device networking and multi-switch fabrics, eliminate requirements for dedicated connections, and enable the enterprise to become data centric.

  • Page 16: Field Replaceable Units (frus)

    Introduction The switch, shown in Figure 1–1, provides dynamic switched connections for servers and devices, supports mainframe and open-systems interconnection (OSI) computing environments, and provides data transmission and flow control between device node ports (N_Ports) as dictated by the Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling Interface (FC-PH 4.3).

  • Page 17: Front Panel Features

    Introduction Front Panel Features Connectors and indicators include the: • Combined initial machine load and reset (IML/RESET) button. • Ethernet LAN connector. • Green power (PWR) and amber system error (ERR) LEDs. • Green, blue and amber status LEDs associated with FRUs. Figure 1–2 shows the front panel controls, connectors and indicators.

  • Page 18: Power And System Error Leds, Ethernet Lan Connector, Initial Machine Load Button

    Introduction Power and System Error LEDs The PWR LED, as shown in Figure 1–2, illuminates when the switch is connected to facility AC power and powered on. If the LED extinguishes, a facility power source, power cord, or power distribution failure is indicated. The ERR LED, as shown in Figure 1–2, illuminates when the switch detects an event...

  • Page 19: Sfp Transceivers (fibre Channel Ports), Port Leds

    Introduction • Ports, causing all Fibre Channel connections to drop momentarily until the connections automatically recover. This causes attached devices to log out and log back in, therefore data frames lost during switch reset must be retransmitted. A reset should only be performed if a CTP card failure is indicated. As a precaution, the IML/RESET button is flush mounted to protect against inadvertent activation.

  • Page 20: Rear Panel Features, Power Supplies

    Introduction Rear Panel Features The switch provides a modular design that enables quick removal and replacement of field-replaceable power supply assemblies with internal cooling fans. Figure 1–3 illustrates the rear of the switch. Power supplies with internal Maintenance port cooling fans (2) Figure 1–3: Edge Switch 2/24 (Rear View) Power Supplies The switch contains two power supply assemblies with internal cooling fans.

  • Page 21: Maintenance Port, Switch Management, Embedded Web Server (ews)

    Introduction Three cooling fans integrated in each power supply assembly (six fans total) provide cooling for the power supplies and CTP card, as well as redundancy for continued operation if a single fan fails. Fans are removed and replaced as part of the integrated power supply.
