    • Because the Brocade VDX 6740 switches can be ordered with fans that move air either front to back (exhaust) or back to front (intake), be sure to orient your switch with the airflow pattern of any other devices in the rack. All equipment in the rack should force air in the same direction to avoid intake of exhaust air.

    If ttyb is already in use, use ttya instead. The serial port is located on the port side of the Brocade VDX 6740 switches. The Brocade VDX 6740 uses an RJ-45 connector for the serial port. The Brocade VDX 6740T and Brocade VDX 6740T-1G use a mini-USB connector for the serial port.

  • Page 27: Permanent Password Assignment

    (<WORD>;;User password satisfying password-attributes):******** Setting the switch IP address You can configure the Brocade VDX 6740 switches with a static IP address, or you can use a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server to set the IP address of the switch. DHCP is enabled by default.

  • Page 28: Setting A Static Ip Address

    This same enabled or disabled state also enables or disables the usage of a link local address for each managed entity (though a link local address will continue to be generated for each switch) because those link local addresses are required for router discovery.

  • Page 29: Setting Stateless Ipv6 Autoconfiguration

    If you are going to have more than one switch in a fabric, each switch must have a unique RBridge ID. The default RBridge ID for any Brocade VDX 6740 is 1. Use the vcs rbridge-id [rbridge-id] command to change the default RBridge ID. You should be in privileged EXEC mode to run the command.

    (RTC) circuit. Date and time are used for logging events. Switch operation does not depend on the date and time; a Brocade VDX 6740 switch with an incorrect date and time value functions properly. Because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, you should set them correctly.

    Date and time on the Brocade VDX 6740 Synchronizing local time using NTP Perform the following steps to synchronize the local time using NTP. 1. Log in to the switch using the default password (the default password is password). 2. Enter the ntp server “IPv4 address” command where IPv4 address is the IP address of the first NTP server in IPv4 format, which the switch must be able to access.
