Preparing for installation

The H3C S6850 Switch Series includes the following models:

·     S6850-56HF.

·     S6850-2C.

The H3C S9850 Switch Series includes the following models:

·     S9850-4C.

·     S9850-32H.

Safety recommendations

To avoid any equipment damage or bodily injury caused by incorrect use, read the following safety recommendations before installation. Note that the recommendations do not cover every possible hazardous condition.

·     Before cleaning the switch, remove all power cords from the switch. Do not clean the switch with wet cloth or liquid.

·     Do not place the switch near water or in a damp environment. Prevent water or moisture from entering the switch chassis.

·     Do not place the switch on an unstable case or desk. The switch might be severely damaged in case of a fall.

·     Ensure good ventilation of the equipment room and keep the air inlet and outlet vents of the switch free of obstruction.

·     Connect the yellow-green protection grounding cable before power-on.

·     Make sure the operating voltage is in the required range.

·     To avoid electrical shocks, do not open the chassis while the switch is operating or when the switch is just powered off.

·     When replacing field replaceable units (FRUs), including power modules and fan trays, wear an ESD wrist strap to avoid damaging the units.

Examining the installation site

The switch must be used indoors.

Mount your switch in a rack and verify the following items:

·     Adequate clearance is reserved at the air inlet and outlet vents for ventilation.

·     The rack has a good ventilation system.

·     Identify the hot aisle and cold aisle at the installation site, and make sure ambient air flows into the switch from the cold aisle and exhausts to the hot aisle.

·     Identify the airflow designs of neighboring devices, and prevent hot air flowing out of the neighboring devices from entering the top device.

·     The rack is sturdy enough to support the switch and its accessories.

·     The rack is reliably grounded.

To ensure correct operation and long service life of your switch, install it in an environment that meets the requirements described in the following subsections.

Temperature/humidity

Maintain appropriate temperature and humidity in the equipment room.

·     Lasting high relative humidity can cause poor insulation, electricity leakage, mechanical property change of materials, and metal corrosion.

·     Lasting low relative humidity can cause washer contraction and ESD and cause problems including loose mounting screws and circuit failure.

·     High temperature can accelerate the aging of insulation materials and significantly lower the reliability and lifespan of the switch.

For the temperature and humidity requirements for the switch, see "Technical specifications."

Cleanliness

Dust buildup on the chassis might result in electrostatic adsorption, which causes poor contact of metal components and contact points, especially when indoor relative humidity is low. In the worst case, electrostatic adsorption can cause communication failure.

EMI

All electromagnetic interference (EMI) sources, from outside or inside of the switch and application system, adversely affect the switch in the following ways:

·     A conduction pattern of capacitance coupling.

·     Inductance coupling.

·     Electromagnetic wave radiation.

·     Common impedance (including the grounding system) coupling.

To prevent EMI, use the following guidelines:

·     If AC power is used, use a single-phase three-wire power receptacle with protection earth (PE) to filter interference from the power grid.

·     Keep the switch far away from radio transmitting stations, radar stations, and high-frequency devices.

·     Use electromagnetic shielding, for example, shielded interface cables, when necessary.

·     To prevent signal ports from getting damaged by overvoltage or overcurrent caused by lightning strikes, route interface cables only indoors.

Laser safety

WARNING

WARNING!

·     The switch is a Class 1M laser device.

·     Disconnected optical fibers or transceiver modules might emit invisible laser light. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments when the switch is operating.

 

Installation tools

No installation tools are provided with the switch. Prepare the following tools yourself:

·     Phillips screwdriver.

·     ESD wrist strap.

·     Marker.

Connecting the grounding cable to the chassis

CAUTION

CAUTION:

If you use one of these grounding points, you must connect the grounding cable to the grounding point before you mount the switch in the rack.

 

For the S6850-56HF, S6850-2C and S9850-32H switches, the primary grounding point and auxiliary grounding point are located on the left panel. For the S9850-4C switch, the primary grounding point and auxiliary grounding point 1 are located on the left panel, and auxiliary grounding point 2 is located on the rear panel.

As a best practice, use the primary grounding point or auxiliary grounding point on the left panel. The grounding cable and grounding screw that come with the switch are suitable only for these two grounding points. To use auxiliary grounding point 2 on the S9850-4C switch, prepare a grounding cable with a ring terminal at each end yourself or purchase the grounding cable (code 0404A0CP) from H3C.

The procedure for connecting the grounding cable to the grounding points on the left panel is the same. This section uses the primary grounding point on the S6850-56HF switch as an example.

To connect the grounding cable to a grounding point on the left panel:

1.     Choose a grounding point as required.

When you install the mounting brackets at the port-side mounting position, choose the auxiliary grounding point. When you install the mounting brackets at the power module-side mounting position, choose the primary grounding point.

This example uses the primary grounding point.

2.     Unpack the grounding cable and grounding screws.

3.     Use the two grounding screws to attach the two-hole grounding lug of the grounding cable to the grounding holes at the grounding point (recommended torque: 20 kgf-cm). Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws. See Figure 34.

Figure 34 Attaching the grounding cable to the primary grounding point on the S6850-56HF switch

 

To connect the grounding cable to auxiliary grounding point 2 on the S9850-4C:

1.     Remove the grounding screw from auxiliary grounding point 2.

2.     Use the grounding screw to attach the ring terminal of the user-supplied grounding cable to the grounding hole at the grounding point. Use a screwdriver to fasten the screw (recommended torque: 20 kgf-cm). See Figure 35.

Figure 35 Attaching the grounding cable to auxiliary grounding point 2 on the S9850-4C switch

 

Attaching the slide rails to the rack

The procedure is the same for attaching 1U and 2U slide rails to the rack. This section uses the 1U slide rails as an example.

To attach the slide rails to the rack:

1.     Identify the slide rail installation position in the rack.

2.     Install cage nuts (user-supplied) in the mounting holes in the rack posts.

3.     Align the screw holes in one slide rail with the cage nuts in a rear rack post. Use user-supplied M6 screws to attach the slide rail to the post (recommended torque: 30 kgf-cm). See Figure 36.

4.     Repeat the preceding steps to attach the other slide rail to the other rear rack post.

Keep the two slide rails at the same height so the slide rails can attach into the chassis rails.

Figure 36 Installing the 1U slide rails

 

Mounting the switch in the rack

This task requires two people.

To mount the switch in the rack:

1.     Wear an ESD wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is reliably grounded.

2.     Verify that the mounting brackets and chassis rails have been securely attached to the switch chassis.

3.     Verify that the slide rails have been correctly attached to the rear rack posts.

4.     Attach cage nuts (user-supplied) to the front rack posts and make sure they are at the same level as the slide rails.

 

CAUTION

CAUTION:

To rack-mount the S9850-4C switch by using 2U high mounting brackets and slide rails, use four M6 screws and four cage nuts to attach each mounting bracket to the rack, as shown in Figure 41 and Figure 42.

 

5.     One person performs the following operations:

a.     Supporting the bottom of the switch, aligns the chassis rails with the slide rails on the rack posts.

b.     Pushes the switch slowly to slide the chassis rails along the slide rails until the mounting brackets are flush with the rack posts.

 

IMPORTANT

IMPORTANT:

·     If you use long slide rails to rack-mount the S6850-56HF, make sure the front ends of the long slide rails reach out of the chassis rails for a maximum of 20 mm (0.79 in). If you use super-short slide rails to rack-mount the S6850-56HF, make sure the front ends of the super-short slide rails reach inside the chassis rails for a minimum of 90 mm (3.54 in) after installation.

·     To rack-mount the S6850-2C and S9850-32H, make sure the front ends of the slide rails reach out of the chassis rails for a minimum of 20 mm (0.79 in) after installation.

·     To rack-mount the S9850-4C, make sure the front ends of the slide rails reach out of the chassis rails for a minimum of 30 mm (1.18 in) after installation.

 

6.     Another person uses user-supplied M6 screws to attach the mounting brackets to the rack (recommended torque: 30 kgf-cm).

Grounding the switch

CAUTION

CAUTION:

·     Correctly connecting the grounding cable is crucial to lightning protection and EMI protection.

·     Connect the grounding cable to the grounding system in the equipment room. Do not connect it to a fire main or lightning rod.

 

The power input end of the switch has a noise filter, whose central ground is directly connected to the chassis to form the chassis ground (commonly known as PGND). You must securely connect this chassis ground to the earth so the faradism and leakage electricity can be safely released to the earth to minimize EMI susceptibility of the switch.

You can ground a switch by using a grounding strip at the installation site.

 

 

NOTE:

·     The grounding terminals in this section are for illustration only.

·     As a best practice to guarantee the grounding effect, use the grounding cable provided with the switch to connect to the grounding strip in the equipment room.

 

To connect the grounding cable:

1.     Attach the two-hole grounding lug of the grounding cable to a grounding point on the chassis. For more information, see "Connecting the grounding cable to the chassis."

2.     Remove the hex nut of a grounding post on the grounding strip.

3.     Attach the ring terminal of the grounding cable to the grounding post on the grounding strip, and secure the ring terminal to the grounding post with the hex nut.

Installing/removing fan trays

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The switch has multiple fan tray slots. To ensure good ventilation of the switch, follow these guidelines to install and remove fan trays:

·     The switch is provided with the fan tray slots empty. Before powering on the switch, make sure all fan tray slots have fan trays installed and the fan trays are the same model.

·     Make sure all slots have a module or filler panel installed when the switch is operating.

·     If multiple fan trays fail on an operating S6850-56HF, S6850-2C, or S9850-32H switch, do not remove the fan trays at the same time. Replace the fan trays one after another and finish replacing a fan tray within 3 minutes.

·     If a fan tray fails on an operating S9850-4C switch, replace the fan tray immediately and keep the failed fan tray in position before replacement. If two fan trays fail, finish replacing the fan trays within 1 minute.

 

The installation and removal procedures are the same for the LSWM1FANSA, LSWM1FANSAB, LSWM1BFANSC, and LSWM1BFANSCB fan trays. The following installation and removal procedures use the LSWM1FANSA fan tray as an example.

Installing a fan tray

CAUTION

CAUTION:

To prevent damage to the fan tray or the connectors on the backplane, insert the fan tray gently. If you encounter a hard resistance while inserting the fan tray, pull out the fan tray and insert it again.

 

IMPORTANT

IMPORTANT:

Before powering on the switch, make sure the fan tray airflow direction and the preferred airflow direction of the switch are the same. If they are not the same, the system generates traps and logs. You can use the fan prefer-direction command to configure the preferred airflow direction for the switch. By default, the preferred airflow direction of the switch is from the port side to the power module side. For more information about the fan prefer-direction command, see H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series Fundamentals Command Reference.

 

Select fan trays for the switch as needed. For the available fan trays and their specifications, see "Fan trays."

To install a fan tray:

1.     Wear an ESD wrist strap and make sure it makes good skin contact and is reliably grounded.

2.     Unpack the fan tray and verify that the fan tray model is correct.

3.     Orient the fan tray with the "TOP" mark on top. Grasp the handle of the fan tray with one hand and support the fan tray bottom with the other, and slide the fan tray along the guide rails into the slot until the fan tray is fully seated in the slot and has a firm contact with the backplane. See Figure 46.

Accessing the switch for the first time

Setting up the configuration environment

You can access the switch through the serial console port or the mini USB console port. As a best practice, use the serial console port to access the switch. To access the switch through the mini USB console port, you need to prepare a mini USB console cable yourself.

The example uses a console cable to connect a console terminal (PC) to the serial console port on the switch.

Figure 61 Connecting the serial console port to a terminal

 

Connecting the console cable

A serial console cable is an 8-core cable, with a crimped RJ-45 connector at one end for connecting to the serial console port of the switch, and a DB-9 female connector at the other end for connecting to the serial port on the console terminal.

Setting up an IRF fabric

You can use H3C IRF technology to connect and virtualize multiple S6850/S9850 switches into a large virtual switch called an "IRF fabric" for flattened network topology, and high availability, scalability, and manageability.

IRF fabric setup flowchart

Figure 66 IRF fabric setup flowchart

 

To set up an IRF fabric:

 

Step

Description

1.     Plan IRF fabric setup.

Plan the installation site and IRF fabric setup parameters:

·     Planning IRF fabric size and the installation site

·     Identifying the master switch and planning IRF member IDs

·     Planning IRF topology and connections

·     Identifying physical IRF ports on the member switches

·     Planning the cabling scheme

2.     Install IRF member switches.

See "Installing the switch in a 19-inch rack".

3.     Connect ground wires and power cords.

See "Grounding the switch" and "Connecting the power cords."

4.     Power on the switches.

N/A

5.     Configure basic IRF settings.

See H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide.

6.     Connect the physical IRF ports.

Connect the physical IRF ports on switches. Use QSFP28/QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers for connections over long distances. Use QSFP28/QSFP+ cables for connections over short distances.

All switches except the master switch automatically reboot, and the IRF fabric is established.

 

Planning IRF fabric setup

This section describes issues that an IRF fabric setup plan must cover.

Planning IRF fabric size and the installation site

Determine the number of required IRF member switches, depending on the user density and upstream bandwidth requirements. The switching capacity of an IRF fabric equals the total switching capacities of all member switches.

You can use switches of the same series or use switches of both the S6850 and S9850 series to form an IRF fabric.

Plan the installation site depending on your network solution as follows:

·     Place all IRF member switches in one rack for centralized high-density access.

·     Distribute the IRF member switches in different racks to implement the top-of-rack (ToR) access solution for a data center.

As your business grows, you can add member switches into the 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. An IRF fabric has only one master switch. You configure and manage all member switches in the IRF fabric at the command line interface of the master switch.

 

 

NOTE:

IRF member switches will automatically elect a master. You can affect the election result by assigning a high member priority to the intended master switch. For more information about master election, see H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide.

 

Prepare an IRF member ID assignment scheme. An IRF fabric uses member IDs to uniquely identify and manage its members, and you must assign each IRF member switch a unique member ID.

Planning IRF topology and connections

You can create an IRF fabric in daisy chain topology, or more reliably, ring topology. In ring topology, the failure of one IRF link does not cause the IRF fabric to split as in daisy chain topology. Rather, the IRF fabric changes to a daisy chain topology without interrupting network services.

You connect the IRF member switches through IRF ports, the logical interfaces for the connections between IRF member switches. Each IRF member switch has two IRF ports: IRF-port 1 and IRF-port 2. To use an IRF port, you must bind a minimum of one physical port to it.

When connecting two neighboring IRF member switches, you must connect the physical ports of IRF-port 1 on one switch to the physical ports of IRF-port 2 on the other switch.

The IRF port connections in the two figures are for illustration only, and more connection methods are available.

Figure 67 IRF fabric in daisy chain topology

 

Figure 68 IRF fabric in ring topology

 

You can set up IRF links between S6850/S9850 switches as follows:

·     Use a QSFP28 module and fiber or a QSFP28 cable to connect QSFP28 ports for a 100-GE IRF physical connection.

·     Use a QSFP+ module and fiber or a QSFP+ cable to connect QSFP28 ports for a 40-GE IRF physical connection.

·     Use a QSFP+ module and fiber or a QSFP+ cable to connect QSFP+ ports for a 40-GE IRF physical connection.

You can bind several ports to an IRF port for increased bandwidth and availability.

Identifying physical IRF ports on the member switches

Identify the physical ports for IRF connections on the member switches according to your topology and connection scheme.

All the QSFP28 ports and QSFP+ ports on the switches (including those on the interface modules), can be used for IRF connections, except for QSFP28 ports on LSWM18CQMSEC interface modules.

When you select ports in a port group for IRF links, you must use all or none of the ports in the group for IRF links. The ports can be bound to different IRF ports.

On an LSWM116Q interface module of the switches, odd and even numbered ports are separated for grouping. The ports are grouped by port number in order, starting from the lowest odd or even number. Each group contains two ports with consecutive odd or even port numbers.

Planning the cabling scheme

You can use QSFP28/QSFP+ cables, or QSFP28/QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers to connect the S6850/S9850 switches for IRF connections.

If the switches are all in one equipment room, choose QSFP28/QSFP+ cables for IRF connections. If the switches are far away from one another, choose QSFP28/QSFP+ transceiver modules and fibers for IRF connections.

For more information about available cables, see "Appendix C Ports and LEDs."

The following subsections describe several IRF connection schemes by using the QSFP28 cables and QSFP28 transceiver modules and fibers. As a best practice, use the ring topology for IRF connections.

Connecting the IRF member switches in one rack

Figure 69 shows an example for connecting four IRF member switches in a rack. The switches in the ring topology (see Figure 70) are in the same order as connected in the rack.

Figure 69 Connecting the switches in one rack

 

Figure 70 IRF fabric topology

 

Connecting the IRF member switches in a ToR solution

You can install IRF member switches in different racks side by side to deploy a top of rack (ToR) solution.

Figure 71 shows an example for connecting four top of rack IRF member switches. The topology is the same as Figure 70.

Figure 71 ToR cabling

 

Configuring basic IRF settings

After you install the IRF member switches, power on the switches, and log in to each IRF member switch (see H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide) to configure their member IDs, member priorities, and IRF port bindings.

Follow these guidelines when you configure the switches:

·     Assign the master switch higher member priority than any other switch.

·     Bind physical ports to IRF port 1 on one switch and to IRF port 2 on the other switch. You perform IRF port binding before or after connecting IRF physical ports depending on the software release.

·     Execute the display irf configuration command to verify the basic IRF settings.

For more information about configuring basic IRF settings, see H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide.

Connecting the physical IRF ports

CAUTION

CAUTION:

Wear an ESD wrist strap when you install transceiver modules, fibers, and cables. For more information, see the installation guide.

 

Use transceiver modules and fibers or cables to connect the IRF member switches as planned.

Accessing the IRF fabric to verify the configuration

To verify the basic functionality of the IRF fabric after you finish configuring basic IRF settings and connecting IRF ports:

1.     Log in to the IRF fabric through the console port of any member switch.

2.     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.

3.     Use Telnet or SNMP to access the IRF fabric from the network management station. (See H3C S6850 & S9850 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide.)

Maintenance and troubleshooting

Power module failure

Symptom

The power module status LED on a power module is not steady green.

For more information about the LEDs on a power module, see H3C LSVM1AC650 & LSVM1DC650 Power Modules User Manual.

Solution

To resolve the issue:

1.     Verify that the power cord is connected correctly.

2.     Verify that the power source is as required by the switch.

3.     Verify that the operating temperature of the switch is in the acceptable range and the power module has good ventilation.

4.     If the issue persists, contact H3C Support.

To replace a power module, see "Installing/removing power modules."

Fan tray failure

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The S6850-56HF, S6850-2C, and S9850-32H switches each have five fan tray slots. The S9850-4C switch has two fan tray slots. To replace failed fan trays on an operating switch, follow these guidelines:

·     If multiple fan trays fail on an operating S6850-56HF, S6850-2C, or S9850-32H switch, do not remove the fan trays at the same time. Replace the fan trays one after another and finish replacing a fan tray within 3 minutes.

·     If a fan tray fails on an operating S9850-4C switch, replace the fan tray immediately and keep the failed fan tray in position before replacement. If two fan trays fail, finish replacing the fan trays within 1 minute.

 

Symptom

·     The status LED on an LSWM1FANSA or LSWM1FANSAB fan tray is steady orange and the system outputs alarm messages.

·     The status LED on an LSWM1BFANSC or LSWM1BFANSCB fan tray is steady yellow and the system outputs alarm messages.

Solution

See "Installing/removing fan trays" to replace the fan tray. If the problem persists, contact H3C Support.

Configuration terminal display problems

No display

Symptom

The configuration terminal displays nothing when the switch is powered on.

Solution

To resolve the issue:

1.     Verify that the power system is operating correctly.

2.     Verify that the console cable is connected correctly.

3.     Verify that the console cable does not have any problems and the terminal settings are correct.

4.     If the issue persists, contact H3C Support.

Garbled display
