Verify the carton contents
The carton contains the following:
One Nexus 5020 or Nexus 5010 CN Switch
Grounding lug kit and electrostatic discharge (ESD) wrist strap
Power cords
Rack mount kit
3
Verify the installation requirements
To set up the Nexus 5000 CN Switch for the first time, you will need the following:
A workstation with an installed terminal emulator (such as HyperTerminal)
An unused IP address and corresponding subnet mask and gateway address
A serial cable (supplied with the switch)
An Ethernet cable
Access to an FTP server to back up the switch configuration (optional)
Cisco branded SFP transceivers and compatible cables as specified in the HP Nexus 5000 Converged
Network Switch QuickSpecs, available at
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/
switches/5000nexus/index.html.
4
Plan the site environment
Air flows through the Nexus 5000 CN Switch from front to back (port- side exhaust). You must maintain
ambient airflow throughout the data center to ensure normal operation. The ambient air temperature must
not exceed 40° C (104° F) and the ambient humidity (relative humidity, noncondensing) must remain between
5% and 95% while the switch is operating.
To install and operate the switch successfully, ensure that:
The primary AC input is 90-264 VAC, 47-63 Hz.
The supply circuit, line fusing, and wire size are adequate, as specified by the electrical rating on the
switch nameplate.
For specific power supply information, see the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Hardware Installation Guide,
available at http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches/5000nexus/index.html.
5
Choose the rack mount
HP strongly recommends installing the switch in one of the following optional HP custom racks:
HP StorageWorks System/e Rack
HP StorageWorks 9000 Series Rack
HP StorageWorks 10000 Series Rack
HP StorageWorks 10000 G2 Series Rack
Follow these guidelines:
Ground all equipment in the rack through a reliable branch circuit connection and maintain ground at
all times. Do not rely on a secondary connection to a branch circuit, such as a power strip.
Ensure that airflow and temperature requirements are being met, especially if the switch is installed in a
closed or multirack assembly.
Ensure that the additional weight of the switch does not exceed the rack's weight limits or unbalance the
rack.
Secure the rack to ensure stability in case of unexpected movement.
For specific temperature and power requirement, see the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series Hardware Installation
Guide, available at
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches/5000nexus/
index.html.
6
Set up a single-switch configuration
To set up a single-switch configuration, you will need the following:
Fixed IP address (IPv4 or IPv6) for the switch
Subnet mask value
Default gateway value
Host computer with a Converged Network Adapter (CNA) installed for connection to the 10 GbE ports
FCoE, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel cables
Disk array with Fibre Channel ports
7
Power on the switch
1.
Connect the power cords to both power supplies and to the power sources on separate circuits to protect
against AC failure.
2.
Power on the power supplies by flipping both AC switches.
3.
After the power-on self test (POST) is complete, verify that the switch power and status LEDs are green.
8
Connect the serial cable
1.
Connect the serial cable to the RJ-45 console port on the switch and to a DB9 serial port on the
workstation.
2.
Disable any serial communication programs running on the workstation.
3.
Open a terminal emulator (such as HyperTerminal on a PC, TERM, TIP, or Kermit in a UNIX environment),
and configure the application as follows:
For most Windows systems:
Bits per second:
9,600
Data bits:
8
Stop bits:
1
Parity:
None
For most UNIX systems:
tip /dev/ttyb
-9600
If ttyb is already in use, use ttya instead:
tip /dev/ttya
-9600
9
Log in to the serial console port
1.
Verify that the switch has completed POST.
When POST is complete, the chassis, fan, power supply, and expansion module status LEDs are green.
2.
Create an admin password and complete the basic configuration dialog. In the following example,
10.10.10.10 is the management IP address, 255.255.255.0 is the netmask, and 10.10.10.1 is the
gateway.
Enter the password for "admin":
Confirm the password for "admin":
---- Basic System Configuration Dialog ----
This setup utility will guide you through the basic
