  • Page 31: Setting Up An Irf Fabric

    Setting up an IRF fabric You can use HP IRF technology to connect and virtualize HP 5920 and 5900 switches into a large virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" for flattened network topology, and high availability, scalability, and manageability. To set up IRF links between HP 5920 and 5900 switches, use SFP+ ports, 1/10-GE Ethernet ports, or QSFP+ ports.

  • Page 32: Planning Irf Fabric Setup

    NOTE: As your business grows, you can plug an HP 5920 or 5900 switch into an IRF fabric to increase the switching capacity without any topology change or replacement. Identifying the master switch and planning IRF member IDs Determine which switch you want to use as the master for managing all member switches in the IRF fabric.

    1/10-GE Ethernet ports or QSFP+ ports. You can bind several 1/10-GE Ethernet ports or QSFP+ ports to an IRF port for increased bandwidth and availability. The HP 5920AF-24XG, and 5920AF-24XG TAA switches can provide 10-GE IRF connections through SFP+ ports. You can bind several SFP+ ports to an IRF port for increased bandwidth and availability.

    All the SFP+ and QSFP+ ports on the HP 5900AF-48XG-4QSFP+, 5900AF-48XG-4QSFP+ TAA, 5900CP-48XG-4QSFP+, 5900CP-48XG-4QSFP+8Gb FC B-F, and 5900AF-48G-4XG-2QSFP+ switches, all the 1/10-GE Ethernet ports and QSFP+ ports on the HP 5900AF-48XGT-4QSFP+ switch, and all the SFP+ ports on the HP 5920AF-24XG and 5920AF-24XG TAA switches can be used for IRF connections.

  • Page 35

    For the HP 5900AF-48XGT-4QSFP+ switches, use twisted pair cables, QSFP+ cables, or QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers to connect the IRF member switches. If the IRF member switches are far away from one another, choose the SFP+/QSFP+ transceiver modules with optical fibers. If the IRF member switches are all in one equipment room, choose twisted pair/SFP+/QSFP+ cables.

  • Page 36: Configuring Basic Irf Settings

    Create a Layer 3 interface, assign it an IP address, and make sure the IRF fabric and the remote network management station can reach each other. Use Telnet, web, or SNMP to access the IRF fabric from the network management station. See HP 5920 & 5900 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide.

  • Page 37

    To avoid IP address collision and network problems, configure at least one multi-active detection (MAD) mechanism to detect the presence of multiple identical IRF fabrics and handle collisions. For more HP 5920 & 5900 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide information about MAD detection, see...
