Information about the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu provides an extension of the Cisco Nexus switch fabric to the Fujitsu blade servers.

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extenders behave as remote line cards for a parent Cisco Nexus switch. The Fabric Extenders are essentially extensions of the parent Cisco Nexus switch fabric, with the Fabric Extenders and the parent Cisco Nexus switch together forming a distributed modular system.

Each Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender connects via 10-Gigabit Ethernet to up to 16 servers within a Fujitsu BladeSystem and contains 8 10-Gigabit Ethernet fabric uplinks towards the parent Cisco Nexus switch. Multiple low cost options are available for fabric connections between the Cisco Nexus B22 and the parent Cisco Nexus switch. Low-cost connections up to 10 meters can be made with copper Twin-ax cable, and longer connections up to 100 meters can use the Fabric Extender Transceiver. Other standard 10 Gigabit Ethernet optics such as 10Gbase-SR, 10Gbase-LR, and 10Gbase-ER are also supported for these fabric connections.

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu has the following features:

Sixteen 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports

Eight 10-Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ ports

Two per port single color LED for external up link ports and no LED for internal ports.

Thermal monitoring

Thermal management provided by the BX900 or BX400 chassis

Fanless

Hot pluggable

12V power from chassis

Consider these prerequisites before you install the switch module:

Fill any unoccupied interconnect bays or any unoccupied power module bays in the blade chassis with blanks.

Identify the bays in which you will insert the switch modules. Plan to install the first switch module in bay 1, the second in bay 2, and so on up to bay 8, if possible. The bay in which you choose to install each switch module depends on whether mezzanine cards are installed and the type of LAN on Motherboard (LOM) in the blade server enclosure. See the blade chassis documentation information about installing and configuring the mezzanine cards or LOM ports.

See the Fujitsu documentation for information on the port mapping between the blade chassis and the switch modules.

Installing the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu

Updating NX-OS

To achieve the best performance, Fujitsu recommends updating to the latest NX-OS software version.


Note The minimum version of NX-OS is 5.2(1)N1(1)
The minimum MMB firmware versions are:
BX900 - MMB firmware version 5.02
BX400 - MMB firmware version 6.41


The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu downloads the necessary firmware from the connected Cisco Nexus switch. You can update the Cisco Nexus Switch without any disruptions using the install all command. Contact the company from whom your Cisco Nexus Switch was purchased.

You can download NX-OS software from the Cisco website: http://www.cisco.com/cisco/software/navigator.html?mdfid=282076290&i=rm

If your units are purchased through Cisco, see Cisco Nexus 5000 Series NX-OS Software Upgrade and Downgrade Guide for instructions on how to download NX-OS from Cisco.

The Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu is managed by its parent Cisco Nexus switch over the fabric interfaces through a zero-touch configuration model. You upgrade the Fabric Extender by upgrading the software on the parent Cisco Nexus switch.

When a Fabric Extender is properly associated with a parent switch, the following upgrade operations are performed:

The switch checks the software image compatibility and upgrades the Fabric Extender if necessary.

The switch pushes the configuration data to the fabric extender. The Fabric Extender does not store any configuration locally.

The Fabric Extender updates the switch with its operational status. All fabric extender information is displayed using the switch commands for monitoring and troubleshooting.

In-Service Software Upgrades (ISSUs) are supported on the parent Cisco Nexus switches. An ISSU can update the software images on your device without disrupting data traffic. An ISSU updates the Kickstart, System, and Fabric Extender image.

The install all command triggers the ISSU on the parent Cisco Nexus switches and the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu. The command provides the following benefits:

You can upgrade the parent Cisco Nexus switches and the Cisco Nexus B22 Fabric Extender for Fujitsu using just one command.

You can receive descriptive information about the intended changes to your system before you continue with the installation. For example, it identifies potential disruptive upgrades.

You can continue or cancel the upgrade when you see this question (the default is no):

Do you want to continue (y/n) [n] : y

You can upgrade the Cisco NX-OS software using a nondisruptive procedure.

The command automatically checks the image integrity, which includes the running kickstart and system images. The command sets the kickstart and system boot variables.

The command performs a platform validity check to verify that a wrong image is not used.

The Ctrl-c escape sequence gracefully ends the install all command. The command sequence completes the update step in progress and returns to the EXEC prompt.

After issuing the install all command, if any step in the sequence fails, the upgrade ends.

The following message appears to warn you about the impact of upgrading the power sequencer:

Warning: please do not remove or power off the module at this time.  
Note: Power-seq upgrade needs a power-cycle to take into effect. 
On success of power-seq upgrade, SWITCH OFF THE POWER to the system and then, power it 
up.

You can force a disruptive upgrade.

For additional information, see the Cisco Nexus 5000 Series NX-OS Software Upgrade and Downgrade Guide.

Disassociating a Fabric Extender from an Interface

To disassociate the Fabric Extender from an interface, perform this task:

Command
Purpose

switch(config-if)# no fex associate

Disassociates the Fabric Extender unit attached to the interface.


Configuring the Fabric Extender

To configure global features for a Fabric Extender, perform this tasks:

 
Command
Purpose

Step 1 

switch# configure terminal

Enters configuration mode.

Step 2 

switch(config)# fex chassis

Enters configuration mode for the specified Fabric Extender chassis ID. The range of the chassis ID is from 100 to 199.

Step 3 

switch(config-fex)# description desc

Specifies the description. The default is the string FEXxxxx where xxxx is the chassis ID. If the chassis ID is 123, the description is FEX0123.

switch(config-fex)# no description

Deletes the description.

switch(config-fex)# pinning max-links uplinks

Defines the number of uplinks. The default is 1. The range is from 1 to 8.

This command is only applicable if the Fabric Extender is connected to its parent switch using one or more statically pinned fabric interfaces. There can only be one EtherChannel connection.

switch(config-fex)# no pinning max-links

Resets the number of uplinks to the default.

switch(config-fex)# serial serial

Defines a serial number string. If this command is configured, then a switch will only allow the corresponding chassis ID to associate (using the fex associate command) if the Fabric Extender reports a matching serial number string.

Configuring a serial number other than that of the given Fabric Extender will force the Fabric Extender offline.

switch(config-fex)# no serial

Deletes the serial number string.

switch(config-fex)# beacon

Turns on the beacon LED. This LED allows you to locate a specific Fabric Extender in a rack.

switch(config-fex)# no beacon

Turns off the beacon LED.


Caution Changing the number of uplinks with the pinning max-links command or the no pinning max-links command disrupts all the host interface ports of the Fabric Extender.

Redistributing the Links

When you provision the Fabric Extender with statically pinned interfaces, the downlink host interfaces on the Fabric Extender are pinned to the fabric interfaces in the order they were initially configured. If you want to maintain a specific relationship of host interfaces to fabric interface across reboots, you should re-pin the links.

You may want to perform this function in these two situations:

A change in the max-links configuration.

If you need to maintain the pinning order of host interfaces to fabric interfaces.

Changing the Number of Links

If you initially configured port 19 on the parent switch as your only fabric interface, all 16 host interfaces are pinned to this port. If you provision another port, for example 20, then you must enter the pinning max-links 2 command to redistribute the host interfaces. All host interfaces are brought down and host interfaces 1 to 8 are pinned to fabric interface 19 and host interfaces 9 to 16 are pinned to fabric interface 20.

Maintaining the Pinning Order

The pinning order of the host interfaces is initially determined by the order in which the fabric interfaces were configured. In this example, four fabric interfaces were configured in the following order:

switch(config-fex)#
switch(config-fex)#
switch(config-fex)# show interface ethernet 1/19 fex-intf
Fabric           FEX
Interface        Interfaces
---------------------------------------------------
 Eth1/19         Eth100/1/4    Eth100/1/3    Eth100/1/2    Eth100/1/1
 
   
switch(config-fex)# show interface ethernet 1/20 fex-intf
Fabric           FEX
Interface        Interfaces
---------------------------------------------------
 Eth1/20         Eth100/1/8    Eth100/1/7    Eth100/1/6    Eth100/1/5
 
   
switch(config-fex)# show interface ethernet 1/21 fex-intf
Fabric           FEX
Interface        Interfaces
---------------------------------------------------
 Eth1/21         Eth100/1/12   Eth100/1/11   Eth100/1/10   Eth100/1/9
 
   
switch(config-fex)# show interface ethernet 1/22 fex-intf
Fabric           FEX
Interface        Interfaces
---------------------------------------------------
 Eth1/22         Eth100/1/16   Eth100/1/15   Eth100/1/14   Eth100/1/13
 
   

The next time that you reboot the Fabric Extender, the configured fabric interfaces are pinned to the host interfaces in an ascending order by port number of the fabric interface. If you want to configure the same fixed distribution of host interfaces without restarting the Fabric Extender, enter the fex pinning redistribute command.

To redistribute the host interfaces on the Fabric Extender, perform this task:

Command
Purpose

switch# fex pinning redistribute chassis

Redistributes the host connections. The range of the chassis ID is from 100 to 199.


This example shows how to redistribute the host interfaces on a Fabric Extender:

switch# fex pinning redistribute 100  


Caution The fex pinning redistribute command disrupts all the host interface ports of the Fabric Extender.
