Preparing for installation

The H3C S6820 Switch Series includes the following models:

·     S6820-32H.

·     S6820-56HF.

·     S6820-4C.

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.

Table 1 Dust concentration limit in the equipment room

Substance

Concentration limit (particles/m³)

Dust

≤ 3 × 104 (no visible dust on the tabletop over three days)

NOTE:

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.

Attaching the mounting brackets and chassis rails to the chassis

1.     Place the wide flange of the mounting bracket against the chassis side panel. Align the mounting bracket installation holes with the screw holes in the chassis. Use M4 screws (provided) to attach the mounting bracket to the chassis.

¡     To install the mounting brackets at the power module-side mounting position, see Figure 13, Figure 14, Figure 15, Figure 16, and Figure 17.

¡     To install the mounting brackets at the port-side mounting position, see Figure 18, Figure 19, Figure 20, Figure 21, and Figure 22.

For the S6820-56HF and S6820-4C switches, to install the mounting brackets at the power module-side mounting position, use the four screw holes nearest to the power module side. To install the mounting brackets at the network port-side mounting position, use the four screw holes nearest to the network port side.

2.     Determine the chassis rail installation position:

¡     If the mounting brackets are installed at the power module-side mounting position, install the chassis rails near the port side.

¡     If the mounting brackets are installed at the network port-side mounting position, install the chassis rails near the power module side.

3.     Place the chassis rail against the chassis side panel. Align the chassis rail installation holes with the screw holes. Use M4 screws (provided) to attach the chassis rail to the chassis. See Figure 13 to Figure 22.

You can use super-short slide rails and long chassis rails to rack-mount the S6820-56HF switch. Based on the rack depth, install the long chassis rails not reaching out of the chassis, as shown in Figure 15 and Figure 20 or reaching out of the chassis, as shown in Figure 16 and Figure 21.

NOTE:

Secure the mounting brackets and chassis rails to both sides of the chassis in the same way.

 

Connecting the grounding cable to the chassis

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The primary grounding point and auxiliary grounding point 1 are located on the left panel of the chassis. 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.

 

As a best practice, use the primary grounding point or auxiliary grounding point 1 because 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 S6820-4C switch, prepare a grounding cable yourself.

This section uses the primary grounding point on the S6820-32H switch as an example.

To connect the grounding cable to a grounding point:

1.     Choose a grounding point as required.

This example uses the primary grounding point.

2.     Unpack the grounding cable and grounding screws.

3.     Use two grounding screws to attach the two-hole grounding lug of the grounding cable to the grounding holes at the grounding point. Use a screwdriver to tighten the screws. See Figure 23.

Figure 23 Attaching the grounding cable to the primary grounding point on the S6820-32H 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, and use screws (user-supplied) to attach the slide rail to the post, as shown in Figure 24.

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 24 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.

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.

6.     Another person uses screws (user-supplied) to attach the mounting brackets to the rack.

To secure the switch in the rack, make sure the front ends of the slide rails reach out of the chassis rails.

The rack-mounting procedures are the same for the S6820-56HF and S6820-32H switches. The following figures use the S6820-32H switch as an example.

Figure 25 Mounting the S6820-32H switch in the rack (power module-side mounting position for the mounting brackets)

 

Figure 26 Mounting the S6820-32H switch in the rack (Port-side mounting position for the mounting brackets)

 

Figure 27 Mounting the S6820-4C switch in the rack (power module-side mounting position for the mounting brackets)

 

Figure 28 Mounting the S6820-4C switch in the rack (Port-side mounting position for the mounting brackets)

 

 

NOTE:

To rack-mount the S6820-4C switch by using 2U high mounting brackets and slide rails, use two screws and two cage nuts to attach each mounting bracket to the rack. Determine the screw installation positions based on the distances between the square holes on the rack posts. The screw installation positions in Figure 27 and Figure 28 are for illustration only.

 

Grounding the switch

CAUTION

CAUTION:

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

·     Do not connect the grounding cable to a fire main or lightning rod.

·     To guarantee the grounding effect and avoid switch damage, use the grounding cable provided with the switch to connect the switch to a grounding strip in the equipment room.

 

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.

To ground the switch:

1.     As shown in Figure 29, 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."

The grounding point in Figure 29 is for illustration only.

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 S6820-32H or S6820-56HF 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 S6820-4C 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 S6820 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 30.

Figure 30 Installing an LSWM1FANSA fan tray in the S6820-32H switch

 

Removing a fan tray

WARNING

WARNING!

·     Ensure electricity safety and never touch the rotating fans when you hot-swap a fan tray.

·     To prevent a fan from causing loud noise, do not touch the fan blades and rotation axis, even if the fan is not rotating.

 

To remove a fan tray:

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

2.     Grasp the handle of the fan tray with one hand and pull the fan tray part way out of the slot. Support the fan tray bottom with the other and pull the fan tray completely out of the slot.

3.     Put the removed fan tray in an antistatic bag.

Installing/removing power modules

WARNING

WARNING!

·     To avoid bodily injury and device damage, strictly follow the procedures in Figure 32 and Figure 33 to install and remove a power module.

·     Provide a separate circuit breaker for each power module.

 

The S6820-32H and S6820-56HF switches each have two power module slots. The S6820-4C switch has four power module slots. The S6820-32H and S6820-56HF switches come with one power module slot empty and one installed with a filler panel. The S6820-4C switch comes with two power module slots empty and two installed with filler panels. You can install power modules for the switch as required.

For information about the available power modules, see "Appendix B FRUs."

Figure 33 Removal procedure

 

Installing a power module

CAUTION

CAUTION:

·     Follow the forward inertia of the power module when inserting it into the chassis, and make sure the power module has firm contact with the connectors on the backplane.

·     To prevent damage to the connectors inside the switch chassis, insert the power module gently. If you encounter a hard resistance while inserting the power module, pull out the power module and insert it again.

 

The LSVM1AC650 and LSVM1DC650 installation procedure is the same on the S6820 switches. The figures in this section use the S6820-32H switch as an example.

To install a power module:

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

2.     Remove the filler panel, if any, from the target power module slot, as shown in Figure 34.

Figure 34 Removing a filler panel

 

3.     Unpack the power module and verify that the power module model is correct.

4.     Correctly orient the power module with the words on the power module upward. Grasp the handle of the power module with one hand and support its bottom with the other, and slide the power module slowly along the guide rails into the slot.

The slot is foolproof. If you cannot insert the power module into the slot, re-orient the power module rather than use excessive force to push it in.

Figure 35 Installing a power module (LSVM1AC650)

 

Removing a power module

CAUTION

CAUTION:

·     When an S6820-32H or S6820-56HF switch has two power modules in 1+1 redundancy mode, removing one power module does not affect the operation of the switch. When the switch has only one power module installed, removing the power module powers off the switch.

·     When an S6820-4C switch has power modules in 2+1 or 2+2 redundancy mode, removing one or two power modules does not affect the operation of the switch. When the switch has only two power modules installed, removing power modules powers off the switch or causes power insufficiency.

 

The LSVM1AC650 and LSVM1DC650 removal procedure is the same on the S6820 switches. The figures in this section use the S6820-32H switch as an example.

To remove a power module:

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

2.     Squeeze the tabs on the power cord connector with your thumb and forefinger, and pull the connector out to remove the power cord, as shown in Figure 36.

3.     Hold the handle on the power module with one hand, pivot the latch on the power module to the right with your thumb, and pull the power module part way out of the slot, as shown in Figure 37.

4.     Supporting the power module bottom with one hand, slowly pull the power module out with the other hand.

5.     Put the removed power module in an antistatic bag for future use.

Verifying the installation

After you complete the installation, verify that:

·     There is enough space for heat dissipation around the switch, and the rack is stable.

·     The grounding cable is securely connected.

·     The correct power source is used.

·     The power cords are correctly connected.

·     All the interface cables are cabled indoors. If any cable is routed outdoors, verify that the socket strip with lightning protection and lightning arresters for network ports have been correctly connected.

 


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 44 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 terminal parameters

To configure and manage the switch through the console port, you must run a terminal emulator program, TeraTermPro or PuTTY, on your configuration terminal. You can use the emulator program to connect a network device, a Telnet site, or an SSH site. For more information about the terminal emulator programs, see the user guides for these programs

The following are the required terminal settings:

·     Bits per second—9600.

·     Data bits—8.

·     Stop bits—1.

·     Parity—None.

·     Flow control—None.

Powering on the switch

1.     Before powering on the switch, verify that the following conditions are met:

¡     All the fan tray slots have a fan tray installed.

¡     The power cords are connected correctly.

¡     The input power voltage is as required by the switch.

¡     The console cable is connected correctly.

¡     The configuration terminal (a PC, for example) has started, and its serial port settings are consistent with the console port settings on the switch.

2.     Power on the switch.

During the startup process, you can access BootWare menus to perform tasks such as software upgrade and file management. The BootWare interface and menu options vary by software version. For more information about BootWare menu options, see the software-matching release notes for the device.

3.     After the startup completes, you can access the CLI to configure the switch.

For more information about the configuration commands and CLI, see H3C S6820 Switch Series Configuration Guides and H3C S6820 Switch Series Command References.

 


Setting up an IRF fabric

You can use H3C IRF technology to connect and virtualize multiple S6820 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 49 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 cord."

4.     Power on the switches.

N/A

5.     Configure basic IRF settings.

See H3C S6820 Switch Series IRF Configuration Guide.

6.     Connect the physical IRF ports.

Connect the physical IRF ports on switches. Use QSFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 transceiver modules and fibers for connections over long distances. Use QSFP28/QSFP28 to SFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 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.

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 S6820 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 50 IRF fabric in daisy chain topology

 

Figure 51 IRF fabric in ring topology

 

You can set up IRF links between S6820 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 100G QSFP28 to 4 × 25G SFP28 cable to connect a QSFP28 port to four 25G SFP28 ports.

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

·     Use an SFP28 module and fiber or an SFP28 cable to connect SFP28 ports for a 25-GE IRF 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, QSFP+, and SFP28 ports on the switch can be used for IRF connections, except for QSFP28 ports on the LSWM18CQMSEC interface module.

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 in a group can be bound to different IRF ports.

The port grouping rules are as follows:

·     The S6820-56HF switch has two port ranges. Ports numbered 1 to 24 are in one range and ports numbered 33 to 56 are in the other range. In each range, the ports are grouped by port number in order, starting from the lowest number. Each group contains four ports.

·     On an LSWM124TG2H module, the ports numbered 1 to 24 are grouped by port number in order, starting from the lowest number. Each group contains four ports.

·     On an LSWM116Q module, 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.

·     The four 25-GE breakout interfaces of a 100-GE port are in one port group. To split a 100-GE port, use the using twenty-fivegige command.

·     Except the LSWM116Q module, if you use a 40-GE or 100-GE port that is not split for IRF links, no grouping restrictions exist.

Planning the cabling scheme

You can use QSFP28/QSFP28 to SFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 cables, or QSFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 transceiver modules and fibers to connect the S6820 switches for IRF connections.

If the switches are all in one equipment room, choose QSFP28/QSFP28 to SFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 cables for IRF connections. If the switches are far away from one another, choose QSFP28/QSFP+/SFP28 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 52 shows an example for connecting four IRF member switches in a rack. The switches in the ring topology (see Figure 53) are in the same order as connected in the rack.

Figure 52 Connecting the switches in one rack

 

Figure 53 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 54 shows an example for connecting four top of rack IRF member switches. The topology is the same as Figure 53.

Figure 54 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 S6820 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 S6820 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 S6820 Switch Series Fundamentals Configuration Guide.)

4.     Verify that you can manage all member switches as if they were one node.

5.     Display the running status of the IRF fabric by using the commands in Table 6.

Appendix D Cooling system

CAUTION

CAUTION:

The chassis and power modules use separate air aisles. Make sure the two aisles are not blocked when the switch is operating.

 

To dissipate heat timely and ensure system stability, the switch uses the front-rear air aisle cooling system. Consider the site ventilation design when you plan the installation site for the switch.
