    The S5000 is purpose-built to provide architectural flexibility for unified and virtualized environments. It is a 10G ToR solution that enables converged local area networks (LAN) and storage area networks (SAN) in the same box. The S5000 delivers Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Fibre Channel (FC) capability in a one rack unit (RU) ToR switch form factor.
  • Page 9: Unpacking The Switch

    Unpacking the Switch The S5000 and its accessories are shipped in multiple boxes. Before unpacking the switch, inspect the container and immediately report any evidence of damage. Verify that you have received your ordered items. For example, if you order one S5000 switch, the following items are included.

    CAUTION: You must complete steps 1 and 2 within one minute or the system powers down. Installing the SFP+ and QSFP+ Optics The S5000 has 48 small form-factor pluggable plus (SFP+) optical ports and four QSFP+ optical ports. For a list of supported optics, refer to the S5000 data sheet: http://www.dell.com/us/enterprise/p/force10-s-series/pd.
  • Page 38: Splitting Qsfp+ Ports To Sfp+ Ports

    NOTE: Stacking is not supported on 40GbE ports operating in 4x10GbE (quad) mode. NOTE: If you use three or more S5000 units in a stack, you can connect up to a maximum of eight 10GbE ports or two 40GbE ports in links between peer switches. If you use only two S5000 units in a stack, you can connect up to four 40GbE ports in links between the two switches.
  • Page 39 Figure 23. Stack-Group Assignments You can connect the systems while they are powered down or up. Stacking ports are bidirectional. The S5000 supports stacking in either a ring or a daisy-chain topology. To provide redundant connectivity, Dell Networking recommends using the ring topology when stacking S5000 systems.
  • Page 40: Connecting Two S5000 Systems

    You can use any of the SFP+ or QSFP+ ports for stacking, provided it is configured as a stacking port. CAUTION: The S5000 does not require special stacking cables. The cables used to connect 10GbE and 40GbE data ports are sufficient.
  • Page 41: Supplying Power And Powering Up The System

    Supplying Power and Powering Up the System Supply power to the S5000 system after the chassis is mounted in a rack or cabinet. WARNING: Installing and swapping of Fibre Channel or Ethernet modules must be done BEFORE power up. If you need to replace a module, power down the system before you replace it.
  • Page 42: Ac Power

    Hot-Swapping Units in a Stack You can add, remove, or swap S5000 units in an existing stack. The units in the stack and the new units can be already powered up or powered down. All units in a stack must run the same version of the operating system.The order in which the units come online or are added to or removed from the stack affects how the stack identifies them and how the units identify themselves.
