    Installing the switch This section provides instructions for installing the HP SN6000B 16Gb FC Switch and the HP SN3000B 16Gb FC Switch. Items required for installation To set up the switch for the first time, you will need the following:...

  • Page 19: Installing The Switch In A Rack Using The Rack Mount Kit

    HP SAN Compatibility Tool at Installing the switch in a rack using the Rack Mount Kit Use the SN6000B and the SN3000B Switch Rack Mount Kits to install the switch in an HP 10000 Series Rack. CAUTION: Install the Rack Mount Kits as described in this section so that when the switch is installed, the port side faces the rear of the rack.

  • Page 20

    Rack mount installation To install the switch in a rack using the Rack Mount Kit: Place the switch on a flat surface and attach each inner rail to the switch using three flat-head screws. See Figure 7 (page 20). The rails are labeled Left and Right to designate the left side and right side of the switch as viewed from its nonport side.

  • Page 21

    Attach each outer rail as shown in Figure 9 (page 21). The rails are labeled Left and Right to designate the left side and right side of the rack as viewed from the front of the cabinet. Figure 9 Attaching the outer rails Slide each rail over the rear mounting brackets.

  • Page 22

    At the front of the rack, run the switch power cords from the sides of the rack through the cutouts in the rail, and then connect them to the switch power supplies. Connect two power cords to the SN6000B 48-port switch. Connect one power cord to the SN3000B 24-port switch. See Figure 1 1 (page 23).

    Install the SFP+ transceivers in the FC ports on the switch to match the ports displayed in the Device Connection window . If you are using an SFP+ transceiver that does not have a pull tab, ensure that the wire bail is in the unlocked position.

  • Page 31: Setting Switch Features

    Connect the FC cables from the switch to your host and storage devices. Ensure that the physical connections match the connections displayed in the Device Connection window. Remove the plastic protector caps from the FC cable ends (if there are any) and position the cable connector so that it is oriented correctly.

  • Page 32: Verifying The Configuration

    Verifying the configuration To confirm that the switch is configured and ready for use: Observe the LEDs to verify that all components are functional. For information about LED patterns, see “LEDs” (page 35). Issue the switchshow command from the workstation. This command provides information about the switch and port status.

  • Page 33: Fabric Os Native And Ag Modes

    In AG mode, cascading is not available for the switch. See the Access Gateway Administrator’s Guide for details on any restrictions. In Native mode, the SN6000B switch provides up to 48 external FC ports and the SN3000B switch provides up to 24 external FC ports. These universal self-configuring ports are capable of becoming one of the following port types: ◦...

  • Page 34: Enabling Ag Mode

    Enabling AG mode Note the following when enabling AG mode: After you enable AG mode, some fabric information is erased, such as the zone and security databases. Enabling AG mode is disruptive because the switch is disabled and rebooted. Ensure that no zoning or AD transaction buffers are active. If a transaction buffer is active, enabling AG mode fails with the error Failed to clear Zoning/Admin Domain configuration.

    The nonport side of the switch has one LED per power supply/fan assembly. See Figure 17 (page 37). The standard configuration of the HP SN3000B 16Gb FC Switch includes a single power supply/fan assembly. Table 6 (page 37) describes the status.

  • Page 38: Boot

    NOTE: Diagnostic tests can temporarily lock the transmit and receive speed of the links. HP does not support 2Gb connectivity to the SN6000B or the SN3000B switches. For information about specific diagnostic tests, see the Fabric OS Troubleshooting and Diagnostics Guide.

  • Page 39: Switch Management

    Each FRU contains two fans. The system software measures and sets fan speed through the tachometer interface. The SN3000B switch comes with one power supply and fan assembly. Fabric OS identifies the assemblies from right to left on the nonport side. Even though they are contained within a single unit, the power supply and fan components are identified separately.

  • Page 40: Determining The Status Of A Power Supply And Fan Assembly

    If the switch has two power supply and fan assemblies, go to step 3. When replacing the power supply and fan assembly in an HP SN3000B 16Gb FC Switch that has only one assembly, the switch must be powered off before removing the assembly.

  • Page 41

    Power off the power supply to be replaced by setting the AC power switch to the off (O) position. The fans in the other power supply automatically switch to high speed to maintain adequate cooling. Unplug the power cord from the power supply and fan assembly being replaced. Unscrew the captive screw using a Phillips screwdriver.

  • Page 42: Installing A Power Supply And Fan Assembly

    Installing a power supply and fan assembly To install the power supply and fan assembly: Ensure that the replacement FRU AC power switch is in the off (O) position. CAUTION: Damage to the switch can result if the AC power switch is in the on (|) position when the switch is installed in the chassis.
