In addition, the chassisShow command displays the Brocade serial number, as well as information about the port and application blades, and other field-replaceable units FRUs.
If you cannot use the wwn command because the switch is inoperable, you can get the WWN from the same place as the serial number. Document feedback Quality is our first concern at Brocade and we have made every effort to ensure the accuracy and completeness of this document.
However, if you find an error or an omission, or you think that a topic needs further development, we want to hear from you. Forward your feedback to: documentation brocade. The Brocade is a small-to-midsize business-class switch that is designed to handle smaller-scale SAN requirements. The Brocade provides up to 24 ports in a single height 1U switch that enables the creation of very dense fabrics in a relatively small space.
The base model also offers a single power supply and fan module with a second module available as an upgrade for redundancy. The Brocade supplies Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability RAS performance and the scalability requirements of an enterprise switch along with interoperability and ease-of-use advantages.
By reducing the number of domain IDs and ports, you simplify configuration and management in a large fabric. Switches in AG mode are logically transparent to the host and the fabric. You can increase the number of hosts that have access to the fabric without increasing the number of switches. D-port functionality is also available for diagnostics.
The base model permits one eight-port trunk plus one four-port trunk. Hardware zoning permits or denies delivery of frames to any destination port address. There are two fans per assembly. A second assembly is available for redundancy and hot-swap capability. One LED green for system power. Voltage monitor. Fan monitor. Temperature monitor. Real-time clock RTC with battery. Figure 1 shows the port side of the Brocade Nonport side of the Brocade Figure 2 shows the nonport side of the Brocade , which contains the power supply including the AC power receptacle and AC power switch and fan assemblies.
The base model configuration with a single assembly is shown. The rack mount kit can be ordered from your switch retailer. The optional mid-mount rack kit for switches can be ordered from your switch retailer. Be sure to use one of these kits. Do not use standard rails to install the Brocade in a rack; they will not fit with the switch.
Do not rely on a secondary connection to a branch circuit, such as a power strip. Recommendations for cable management The minimum radius to which a 50 micron cable can be bent under full tensile load is 5.
For a cable under no tensile load, that minimum is 3. Following is a list of recommendations: NOTE You should not use tie wraps with optical cables because they are easily overtightened and can damage the optic fibers. This provides room to remove and replace the switch, allows for inadvertent movement of the rack, and helps prevent the cables from being bent to less than the minimum bend radius. Verify the items are present and undamaged.
Apply the adhesive rubber feet. Applying the rubber feet onto the switch helps prevent the switch from sliding off the supporting surface.
Clean the indentations at each corner of the bottom of the switch to ensure that they are free of dust or other debris that might lessen the adhesion of the feet. With the adhesive side against the chassis, place one rubber foot in each indentation and press into place. Place the switch on a flat, sturdy surface. Brocade configuration Once you have set up the Brocade in a rack or as a standalone switch, it is time to apply power and a basic configuration.
If you are going to use the Brocade in a single-switch setup, you can use EZSwitchSetup to complete the basic configuration. If you do not want to use EZSwitchSetup, continue with the instructions in this section. Providing power to the switch Perform the following steps to provide power to the Brocade Connect the power cord to the power supply, and then to a power source.
If using two power supplies, be sure to connect the cords to power sources on separate circuits to protect against AC failure. Ensure that the cords have a minimum service loop of 6 inches available and are routed to avoid stress.
The switch usually requires several minutes to boot and complete POST. See Figure 3 for the specific location of the LEDs. Creating a serial connection NOTE You will perform all configuration tasks in this guide using a serial connection.
Connect the serial cable to the serial port on the switch and to an RS serial port on the workstation. If the serial port on the workstation is RJ45 instead of RS, remove the adapter on the end of the serial cable and insert the exposed RJ45 connector into the RJ45 serial port on the workstation. DHCP is enabled by default. Setting a static IP address 1. Log in to the switch using the default password which is password. Use the ipaddrset command to set the Ethernet IP address. As you enter a value and press Enter for a line in the following example, the next line appears.
For instance, the Ethernet IP address appears first. When you enter a new IP address and press Enter or simply press Enter to accept the existing value, the Ethernet Subnetmask line appears.
Date and time settings The Brocade maintains the current date and time inside a battery-backed real-time clock RTC circuit. Date and time are used for timestamping log events. Switch operation does not depend on the date and time; a Brocade with an incorrect date and time value still functions properly. However, because the date and time are used for logging, error detection, and troubleshooting, you should set them correctly.
Time zones You can set the time zone for the switch by name. You can select continent, country, or time zone region names.
If the time zone is not set with the named options, the switch retains the offset time zone settings. If you have set the time zone with a name, you can revert to the offset format if you choose. You can set the time zone for a switch using the tsTimeZone command. However, only those with administrative permissions can set the time zones. If all switches in a fabric are in one time zone, it is possible for you to keep the time zone setup at the default setting. Local time synchronization You can synchronize the local time of the principal or primary fabric configuration server FCS switch to a maximum of eight external Network Time Protocol NTP servers.
The other switches in the fabric will automatically take their time from the principal or primary FCS switch.
