Introducing the Switch Introducing the Switch The HP ProCurve Series 6600 Switches are top-of-rack data center switches that support advanced Layer three switching, and have reversible front-to- back airflow, and two hot-swappable power supplies. These switches can be used to build high-speed switched networks between servers in the data center.
10/100/1000Base-T RJ-45 or mini- GBIC (Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP)) ports. The 6600-24G-4XG Switch has the same ports as the Switch 6600-24G plus it also has 4 SFP+ slots for 10-GbE connectivity. The specification for SFP+ defines the physical and electrical characteristics of this form-factor (size and shape).
These switches can directly connect servers to other servers or backbone LANs to provide dedicated bandwidth to those devices, and can build a switched network infrastructure by connecting the switch to hubs, other switches, or routers. In addition, the Series 6600 Switches offer full network management capabilities.

(you can see it move outward slightly), and then pull it from the slot. To remove the mini-GBICs that have the wire bail, lower the bail until it is approximately horizontal, and then using the bail, pull the mini-GBIC from the slot.
Out-of-band: The switch comes with a cable for connecting a PC or VT- ■ 100 terminal, to be used as a console, directly to the switch. You can use the console port only for out-of-band management. It cannot be used for a Telnet connection.
“Function, Arrow, and Ctrl Keys act as” parameter If you want to operate the console using a different configuration, make sure you change the settings on both the terminal and on the switch so they are compatible. Change the switch settings first, save your changes, then change the terminal settings, then reboot the switch and reestablish the console session.

Recommended Minimal Configuration Getting Started With Switch Configuration This chapter is a guide for using the console Switch Setup screen to quickly assign an IP (Internet Protocol) address and subnet mask to the switch, set a Manager password, and, optionally, configure other basic features.
Using the Console Setup Screen N o t e By default, the switch is configured to acquire an IP address configuration from a DHCP or Bootp server. To use DHCP/Bootp instead of the manual method described in this chapter, see “DHCP/Bootp Operation” in the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the ProCurve Web site at www.procurve.com/manuals.
Recommended; If you set IP Config to Manual, then enter an IP address Note: The IP address and subnet mask assigned for the switch must be compatible with the IP addressing used in your network. For more information on IP addressing, see the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the ProCurve Web site at www.procurve.com/manuals.
The above procedure configures your switch with a Manager password, IP address, and subnet mask. As a result, with the proper network connections, you can now manage the switch from a PC equipped with Telnet, a web browser interface, or from an SNMP-based network management station using a tool such as ProCurve Manager.
Management The switch’s IP address can be used to manage the switch from any PC that is on the same subnet as the switch. Either a Telnet session or a standard web browser can be used to manage the switch.
An extensive help system is also available for the web browser interface. To access the help system though, the subnet on which the switch is installed must have access to the internet, or ProCurve Manager needs to be installed on a network management station that is on the subnet.
C a u t i o n The HP ProCurve Series 6600 Switch and its components are sensitive to static discharge. Use an antistatic wrist strap and observe all static precautions when replacing components.
Replacing Components Replacing the fan tray assembly C a u t i o n If the fan assembly is replaced with the switch powered on, you will have approximately three minutes before the switch overheats. To replace a fan tray assembly: Unscrew the retaining screws.
Replacing the Battery The battery is used to keep time for the internal switch clock. There is not LED indicator for when the battery no longer has sufficient power. The only indication will be the internal clock will not keep the correct time. The battery is not hot swappable.
Insert a new battery with the lettering and the plus “+” sign facing up. Be sure to replace with the same type of battery. Reinstall the top of the switch. Reinstall and tighten all the screws securing the top. Reconnect the power cable(s).
Replacing the Power Supplies If your HP ProCurve Series 6600 Switch is configured with redundant power supplies, the switch will not suffer any loss of traffic or performance if a power supply fails. Replace the failed component as soon as possible. The PS (Power Supply) LED will blink simultaneously with the switch Fault LED indicating a power supply has failed.
Connecting to devices that have a fixed full-duplex configuration. The RJ-45 ports are configured as “Auto”. That is, when connecting to attached devices, the switch will operate in one of two ways to determine the link speed and the communication mode (half duplex or full duplex): •...
Because the switch behaves in this way (in compliance with the IEEE 802.3 standard), if a device connected to the switch has a fixed configuration at full duplex, the device will not connect correctly to the switch. The result will be high error rates and very inefficient communications between the switch and the device.
■ Check the port configuration. A port on your switch may not be operating as you expect because it has been put into a “blocking” state by Spanning Tree, GVRP (automatic VLANs), or LACP (automatic trunking). (Note that the normal operation of the Spanning Tree, GVRP, and LACP features may put the port in a blocking state.) Or, the port just may have...
Troubleshooting Diagnosing with the LEDs Diagnosing with the LEDs Table 5-1 shows LED patterns on the switch and the switch modules that indicate problem conditions. Check in the table for the LED pattern you see on your switch. Refer to the corresponding diagnostic tip on the next few pages.
Try power cycling the switch. If the fault indication reoccurs, the switch may have failed. hardware failure Call your ProCurve authorized LAN dealer, or use the electronic support services from HP has occurred. All to get assistance. See the Customer Support/Warranty booklet for more information.
– For twisted-pair connections to the fixed 10/100 or 10/100/1000 ports, if the port is configured to “Auto” (auto negotiate), either straight-through or crossover cables can be used because of the switch’s “HP Auto-MDIX” feature and the Auto MDI/ MDI-X feature of the 10/100/1000-T port.
Use the switch console to see if the port is part of a dynamic trunk (through the LACP improperly feature) or to see if Spanning Tree is enabled on the switch, and to see if the port may configured, or have been put into a “blocking”...

Checking the Switch LEDs The self test passes if the Fault and Self Test LEDs on the front of the switch go off after approximately 50 seconds. If these LEDs stay on longer than 60 seconds or begin Blinking, there may be a problem with the switch.
LAN adapters between which you can run a link-level test or Ping test through the switch, you can use this test to verify that the entire communication path between the two PCs is functioning correctly. See your LAN adapter documentation for more information on running a link test or Ping test.
(usually disabling them) may result in network connectivity issues. If the switch has a valid configuration, and you are restoring the factory default settings for a reason other than configuration problems, you should save the switch configuration prior to performing the factory default reset.

Installing the Patch Cord As shown in the illustration below, connect the patch cord to the ProCurve transceiver with the section of single mode fiber plugged in to the Tx (transmit) port. Then, connect the other end of the patch cord to your network cabling patch panel, or directly to the network multimode fiber.
-- you no longer have to use crossover cables, although crossover cables can also be used for any of the connections. If you connect a Switch 6600 twisted-pair port to another switch or hub, which typically have MDI-X ports, the Switch 6600 port automatically operates as an MDI port.
Straight-Through Twisted-Pair Cable for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Network Connections Because of the HP Auto-MDIX operation of the 10/100 ports on the switch, for all network connections, to PCs, servers or other end nodes, or to hubs or other switches, you can use straight-through cables.
Crossover Twisted-Pair Cable for 10 Mbps or 100 Mbps Network Connection The HP Auto-MDIX operation of the 10/100 ports on the switch also allows you to use crossover cables for all network connections, to PCs, servers or other end nodes, or to hubs or other switches.
Straight-Through Twisted-Pair Cable for 1000 Mbps Network Connections 1000Base-T connections require that all four pairs or wires be connected. Cable Diagram N o t e Pins 1 and 2 on connector “A” must be wired as a twisted pair to pins 1 and 2 on connector “B”.
