    Introduction The Dell PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k switches are Layer 3, blade switches that operate in the Dell PowerEdge M1000e system. The M1000e system can support up to 16 server blades and six PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k blade switches.
  • Page 50: About This Document

    About This Document This guide describes how to configure, monitor, and maintain a Dell PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k switch by using Web- based Dell OpenManage Switch Administrator utility or the command-line interface (CLI). Audience This guide is for network administrators in charge of managing one or more PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k switches.

    Multiple Management Options You can use any of the following methods to manage the switch: • Use a Web browser to access the Dell OpenManage Switch Administrator interface. The switch contains an embedded Web server that serves HTML pages. •...
  • Page 55: Port Aggregator

    Port Aggregator The Port Aggregator feature minimizes the administration required for managing the PowerConnect M6220/M6348/M8024/M8024-k switch. When the switch is operating in simple mode, the administrator can map internal ports to external ports without having to know anything about STP, VLANs, Link Aggregation or other L2/L3 protocols.
  • Page 56: Integrated Dhcp Server

    Integrated DHCP Server PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k switches include an integrated DHCP server that can deliver host-specific configuration information to hosts on the network. The switch DHCP server allows you to configure IP address pools (scopes), and when a host’s DHCP client requests an address, the switch DHCP server automatically assigns the host an address from the pool.
  • Page 57: File Management

    File Management You can upload and download files such as configuration files and system images by using HTTP (web only), TFTP , Secure FTP (SFTP), or Secure Copy (SCP). Configuration file uploads from the switch to a server are a good way to back up the switch configuration.
  • Page 58: Sflow

    sFlow sFlow is the standard for monitoring high-speed switched and routed networks. sFlow technology is built into network equipment and gives complete visibility into network activity, enabling effective management and control of network resources. The PowerConnect M6220, M6348, M8024, and M8024-k switches support sFlow version 5. For information about configuring managing sFlow settings, see "Monitoring Switch Traffic"...
  • Page 59: Stacking Features (Pcm6220 And Pcm6348 Only)

    Stacking Features (PCM6220 and PCM6348 Only) NOTE: PowerConnect M6220 switches can be stacked only with other PowerConnect M6220 switches. PCM6220 and PCM6348 switches cannot be combined within the same stack. For information about creating and maintaining a stack of switches, see "Managing a Switch Stack"...
  • Page 60: Master Failover With Transparent Transition

    Master Failover with Transparent Transition Standby The stacking feature supports a or backup unit that assumes the Master unit role if the Master unit in the stack fails. As soon as a Master failure is detected in the stack, the Standby unit initializes the control plane and enables all other stack units with the current configuration.
