Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 — The rack should be balanced and the installed equipment within the rack’s weight limits. Ensure the rack is mechanically secured to ensure stability in the event of an earthquake. Cooling Requirements Cooling air is drawn into the switch chassis by the fans mounted on the rear of the chassis.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Electrostatic Discharge Precautions To prevent electrostatic damage, observe the following precautions: Avoid hand contact by transporting and storing products in static-safe containers. Keep electrostatic-sensitive parts in their containers until they arrive at static-free workstations. Place parts on a grounded surface before removing them from their containers.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Installing the SAN Switch as a Stand-alone Unit Use these procedures for setting up the switch as a stand-alone unit. The following items are required for this setup: SAN Switch 2/16 AC power cord(s) and cables supplied with the switch Rubber mounting feet supplied with the switch 1.

Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Important Information on Setting the Core PID Format The switch you have purchased may require a change to the configuration setting known as the Core PID format. A Core PID format is one of two addressing mechanisms used in Fibre Channel. The Core PID format is analogous to specifying the physical switch and port a device is attached to in data networks.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 How to Change the Core PID Format In order for the switches to interoperate properly, all of them must have the same Core PID format. Use these steps to change the Core PID format, if necessary. Caution: Remember that you must change the Core PID format before connecting fiber cables.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Modifying Domain IDs Optional. Modify the domain IDs, if desired, as follows. Note: The default domain ID is 1. If the default domain ID is already in use when the switch is connected to the fabric, the domain ID for the new switch is automatically reset to a unique value.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Specifying Custom Status Policies Optional. If desired, specify any custom status policies for the fabric as follows. 1. Enter the following at the prompt. switchStatusPolicySet 2. Specify the desired status policies. To completely deactivate the alarm for a particular condition, enter 0 at the prompt for that condition.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 4. Connect the cables to the SFPs as appropriate to the fabric topology, by positioning each cable so that the key (the ridge on one side of the cable connector) is aligned with the slot in the SFP, see Figure SHR-2549A Figure 25: Inserting a cable into an SFP...
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 Note: Backing up the configuration is strongly recommended. This ensures that a complete configuration is available if required for a replacement switch. For instructions on how to back up the configuration, refer to “Backing Up System Configuration Settings”...
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 4. Set the switch Domain Address using the configure command to the next unused domain in the SAN. The default domain setting is 1. Note: If a switch boot failure occurs, the switch must be taken offline for repair or replacement.
Installing the SAN Switch 2/16 device. Check the configuration information for your network components for specific requirements. See the HP StorageWorks Fabric OS Version 3.1.x/4.1.x Procedures User Guide for a detailed command description. Cascading Switches The Domain ID number uniquely identifies a switch in a fabric. Normally, the switch automatically assigns the Domain ID when a switch is first powered on or when the switch disable/enable command is executed.

Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Management Overview The switch is managed using TCP/IP protocol, in-band over Fibre Channel, or out-of-band by connecting to the Ethernet port. The management functions allow the administrator to monitor fabric topology, port status, physical status, and other information to aid in system debugging and performance analysis.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Enabling Licensed Features Licensed features such as QuickLoop and Fabric Watch are already loaded onto the switch firmware, but must be enabled with a license key. Once you have purchased these features you are provided with a key to unlock the feature. Use these steps to enable a licensed feature.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Note: The switch must be connected to your IP network through the RS-232 port to enable connection through telnet. 2. At the login prompt, enter the user ID you are logging in as. For example: login: admin The password prompt is displayed if the user exists.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 6. At the New Password prompt, enter the new password exactly as entered to the previous prompt. 7. Press Enter to commit the configuration to the firmware. Configuring the IP and Fibre Channel Address The SAN Switch 2/16 is shipped with a default IP address of 10.77.77.77. Use these steps to change the default IP Address and configure the Fibre Channel IP address of the switch.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Displaying Devices within the Fabric To verify that you have fabric-wide connectivity when you install a new switch, display the fabric-wide device count from the newly installed switch. Use these steps to display the fabric. 1.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Note: Year values greater than 69 are interpreted as 1970–1999; year values less than 70 are interpreted as 2000–2069. The date function does not support daylight saving time or time zones. Displaying Switch Configuration Settings Use these steps to display the system configuration settings.
Managing the SAN Switch 2/16 Diagnostic Tests Read the following sections for information on using POST and diagnostic tests. Interpreting POST Results Each time the switch is powered on or reset, the switch automatically performs POST, a one minute system check during which the port status LEDs flash different colors.
