The STATUS LED indicates the current health of the supervisor engine and the current software state.

Green—All diagnostic tests have passed.

Orange—System boot or a diagnostic test is in progress.

Red—A diagnostic test failed.

Off—The supervisor engine is disabled or is not powered up.

RESET switch

The RESET switch is used to reset and restart the switch.

Note Use a paper clip or other small, pointed object to press the RESET switch.

ACTIVE SUP LED

The ACTIVE SUP LED indicates whether the supervisor engine is active or in standby mode in redundant supervisor engine configurations.

Green—Supervisor engine is active (in redundant supervisor engine configurations).

Off—Supervisor engine is in standby mode (in redundant supervisor engine configurations).

UTILIZATION LEDs

When the switch is operational, the eight UTILIZATION LEDs indicate the current traffic load over the backplane as an approximate percentage value. Each LED represents approximately 12.5 percent of load.

USB connectors

Two USB 2.0 ports are provided:

Port 1 is not supported at this time.

Port 2 operates in host mode (downstream). It has a USB type A connector and a standard USB 2.0 device such as a flash memory device, can plug into this connector.

SECURE DIGITAL slot

A standard Secure Data (SD) memory card interface is provided on the front panel.

CONSOLE port

A 10/100/1000 port that uses an RJ-45 connector. The console port allows you to access the switch either locally (with a console terminal) or through a modem (remote). The port has an RJ-45 connector. The console port allows you to perform the following functions:

Configure the switch from the CLI.

Monitor network statistics and errors.

Configure SNMP agent parameters.

10/100/1000 MGT port

The Ethernet management port is a Layer 3 host port to which you can connect a PC. You can use the Ethernet management port instead of the switch console port for network management. When managing a switch, connect the PC to the Ethernet management port on a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch.

Green—The link is operational.

Orange—The link is disabled by user.

Flashing orange—The power-on self-test indicates a faulty port.

Off—No signal is detected or there is a link configuration failure.

Note When connecting a PC to the Ethernet management port, you must assign an IP address.

LINK LED

The 10/100/1000 MGT port has a LINK LED associated with it.

UPLINK (SFP/SFP+) ports

The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has four uplink ports. Ports 1 and 2 support either 10GBASE SFP+ transceivers or 1000BASE SFP transceivers. Ports 3 and 4 support only 1000BASE SFP transceivers. There are restrictions on the use of the uplink ports in both single supervisor engine and redundant supervisor engine configurations and both 10-G and 1-G operation. Refer to Table 3 for a matrix of uplink port permissible transceiver configurations and transceiver restrictions.

Uplink port LEDs

There are two types of LEDs associated with the supervisor engine uplink ports.

Uplink port ACTIVE LEDs

Uplink ports on the supervisor engine are active in pairs. Two LEDs on the front panel show this activity. One LED, labeled 1G/10G 1-2 ACTIVE, indicates ports 1 and 2 are active; the other is labeled 1G 3-4 ACTIVE and indicates ports 3 and 4 are active.

In standalone supervisor engine configurations operating in 1-Gigabit mode, all four uplink ports are active; both the 1-2 ACTIVE LED and 3-4 ACTIVE LED are lit green.

In redundant supervisor engine configurations, only the 1-2 ACTIVE LED is lit green. When one supervisor engine is removed, both the 1-2 ACTIVE LED and 3-4 ACTIVE LED are lit green on the remaining supervisor engine when it is in 1-Gigabit operation. In 10-Gigabit mode, only the 1-2 ACTIVE LED is lit.

Uplink port STATUS LEDs

Uplink ports 1 and 2 each have two uplink port STATUS LEDs. The 1G LED displays port status when a 1-GB SFP transceiver is installed in the port socket. The 10G LED displays port status when a 10-GB SFP+ transceiver is installed in the port socket. Port 3 and Port 4 support only 1-GB SFP transceivers and have only the 1G port status LED.

Green—The link is operational.

Orange—The link is disabled by user.

Flashing orange—The power-on self-test indicates a faulty port.

Off—No signal is detected or there is a link configuration failure.

Removing and Installing the Supervisor Engine 7L-E

This section contains the following subsections:

Required Tools

Installing the Supervisor Engine

Removing the Supervisor Engine 7L-E


Warning Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment. Statement 1030

Warning Ultimate disposal of this product should be handled according to all national laws and regulations. Statement 1040

Required Tools

You will need the following tools to remove or install a supervisor engine in a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch:

Number 2 Phillips-head screwdrivers for the captive installation screws

3/16-in. flat-blade screwdriver for the captive installation screws on other modules

Antistatic mat or antistatic bag

ESD wrist strap or other grounding device


Note Whenever you handle supervisor engines, use a wrist strap or other personal grounding device to prevent electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage.


Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

ESD damage, which can occur when electronic cards or components are improperly handled, results in complete or intermittent failures. Port adapters and processor modules consist of printed circuit boards that are fixed in metal carriers. Electromagnetic interference (EMI) shielding and connectors are integral components of the carrier. Although the metal carrier helps to protect the board from ESD, use a preventive antistatic strap during handling.

Following are guidelines for preventing ESD damage:

Always use an ESD wrist or ankle strap and ensure that it makes good skin contact.

Connect the equipment end of the strap to an unfinished chassis surface.

When installing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to properly seat the bus connectors in the backplane or midplane. These devices prevent accidental removal, provide proper grounding for the system, and help to ensure that bus connectors are properly seated.

When removing a component, use any available ejector levers or captive installation screws to release the bus connectors from the backplane or midplane.

Handle carriers by available handles or edges only; avoid touching the printed circuit boards or connectors.

Place a removed component board-side-up on an antistatic surface or in a static-shielding container. If you plan to return the component to the factory, immediately place it in a static-shielding container.

Avoid contact between the printed circuit boards and clothing. The wrist strap only protects components from ESD voltages on the body; ESD voltages on clothing can still cause damage.

Never attempt to remove the printed circuit board from the metal carrier.


Caution For safety, periodically check the resistance value of the antistatic strap. The measurement should be between 1 and 10 megohm (Mohm).

Removing the Supervisor Engine 7L-E


Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051

Warning Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing. Statement 1034

Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle supervisor engines by the carrier edges only.

To remove a supervisor engine from a Catalyst 4500 E-series switch, follow these steps:


Step 1 Disconnect any network interface cables attached to the ports on the supervisor engine that you intend to remove.

Step 2 Loosen the two captive installation screws on either edge of the supervisor engine faceplate.

Step 3 Grasp the left and right ejector levers at either end of the supervisor engine faceplate and simultaneously pivot the levers outward to disengage the supervisor engine from the chassis backplane connector.

Step 4 Grasp the front panel of the supervisor engine with one hand and place your other hand under the supervisor engine carrier to support and guide it out of the slot. Do not touch the printed circuit boards or connector pins.

Step 5 Carefully slide the supervisor engine straight out of the slot, keeping your other hand under the carrier to guide it.

Step 6 Place the supervisor engine on an antistatic mat or in an antistatic bag, or immediately install the supervisor engine in another chassis slot.

Step 7 In chassis configured with redundant supervisor engines, if the chassis slot is to remain empty, you must install a blank line card (C4K-SLOT-CVR-E) to cover the empty slot.


Warning Blank faceplates and cover panels serve three important functions: they prevent exposure to hazardous voltages and currents inside the chassis; they contain electromagnetic interference (EMI) that might disrupt other equipment; and they direct the flow of cooling air through the chassis. Do not operate the system unless all cards, faceplates, front covers, and rear covers are in place. Statement 1029

Installing the Supervisor Engine

Catalyst 4500 E-series switches have horizontal chassis slots that are numbered from top to bottom. Table 4 lists the Catalyst 4500 E-series chassis and which chassis slots support the Supervisor Engine 7L-E.

Table 4 Supervisor Engine 7L-E Support

Note Redundant supervisor engine configurations are supported in both of these chassis.


:


Note The supervisor engines in a redundant system must be of the same type.



Warning Hazardous voltage or energy is present on the backplane when the system is operating. Use caution when servicing. Statement 1034

Caution To prevent ESD damage, handle supervisor engines by the carrier edges only.

To install a supervisor engine in the chassis, follow these steps:


Step 1 Take the necessary precautions to prevent ESD damage as described in the installation guide for your switch.

Step 2 Ensure that you have enough clearance to accommodate any interface equipment that you will connect directly to the supervisor engine ports.

Step 3 Loosen the two captive installation screws that secure the switching-module filler plate or the existing supervisor engine and remove it.

Step 4 Remove the blank slot cover or the existing supervisor engine from the slot. If you are removing a blank slot cover, set it aside and save it for future use. If you are removing an existing supervisor engine, see the "Removing the Supervisor Engine 7L-E" section.

Step 5 Remove the new supervisor engine from the shipping packaging.

Step 6 Hold the switching module front panel with one hand and place your other hand under the carrier to support the supervisor engine, as shown in Figure 2. Do not touch the printed circuit boards or connector pins.

Step 7 Align the edges of the supervisor engine carrier with the guides on the sides of the switch chassis slot, as shown in Figure 2.

Figure 2 Installing the Supervisor Engine in the Chassis (Catalyst 4507R-E Chassis Shown)

Step 8 Pivot the two module ejector levers out and away from the faceplate.

Step 9 Carefully slide the supervisor engine into the slot until the notches on both ejector levers engage the chassis sides.

Step 10 Simultaneously pivot in both ejector levers so that they are parallel with the supervisor engine faceplate to fully seat the supervisor engine in the backplane connector.


Caution Always use the ejector levers when installing or removing a supervisor engine. A supervisor engine that is partially seated in the backplane will not function correctly.

Step 11 Use a screwdriver to tighten the two captive installation screws on the supervisor engine. Do not overtighten the captive installation screws.


To check the status of the module, follow these steps:


Step 1 Verify that the supervisor engine STATUS LED is lit.

Step 2 Periodically check the STATUS LED.

If the STATUS LED changes from orange to green, the supervisor engine has successfully completed the boot process and is now online.

If the STATUS LED remains orange or turns red, the supervisor engine has not successfully completed the boot process and may have encountered an error.

Step 3 When the switch is online, enter the show module command. Verify that the system acknowledges the new supervisor engine and that the supervisor engine status is good.

Step 4 If the supervisor engine is not operational, reseat it. If the supervisor engine is still not operational, contact your customer service representative.


Attaching Interface Cables to the Supervisor Engine 7L-E

The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has the following interface ports:

USB ports

Console port

Management port

Uplink Ports

USB Port

The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has two USB ports:

Port 1 is not supported at this time.

Port 2 is set up in host mode (downstream). This port interfaces with a Type A USB connector. A standard USB 2.0 device such as a flash memory device can plug into this connector.

Console Port

The console port allows you to access the switch either locally (through a console terminal) or remotely (through a modem). The console is an EIA/TIA-232 asynchronous, serial connection with hardware flow control and an RJ-45 connector.

Management Port

The Ethernet management port can be used (in ROMMON mode only) to recover a switch software image that has been corrupted or destroyed due to a network catastrophe. When using Cisco IOS Release 12.2(50)SG or later, this port can also perform the same functions as the console port. For earlier Cisco IOS software releases, this port is not active while the switch is operating normally.

Uplink Ports

The Supervisor Engine 7L-E has four Ethernet uplink ports available on the front panel. The ports can be used to provide additional port capacity for a fully configured switch or can eliminate the need to use a chassis slot for a module. The ports can be configured with either SFP transceivers for 1-GB operation or SFP+ transceivers for 10-GB operation. See Table 3 for SFP+ and SFP transceiver options. For additional information on the SFP and the SFP+ transceivers, refer to the SFP and the SFP+ data sheets at the following URLs:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps5455/ps6577/product_data_sheet0900aecd8033f885.html

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/modules/ps5455/data_sheet_c78-455693.html


Note Always keep caps and plugs on the fiber-optic connectors on the cable and the switch when they are not in use.



Warning Invisible laser radiation may be emitted from disconnected fibers or connectors. Do not stare into beams or view directly with optical instruments. Statement 1051

Note Make sure that the optical connectors are clean before making the connections. Contaminated connectors can damage the fiber and cause data errors.



Caution Use extreme care when removing or installing connectors so that you do not damage the connector housing or scratch the end-face surface of the fiber. Always install protective covers on unused or disconnected components to prevent contamination. Always clean fiber connectors before installing them.

For SFP and SFP+ transceiver installation information, refer to the Cisco SFP and SFP+ Transceiver Module Installation Notes at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/interfaces_modules/transceiver_modules/installation/note/78_15160.html


Note Use only Cisco SFP and SFP+ transceivers on your Cisco device. Each SFP transceiver has an internal serial EEPROM that is encoded with security information. This encoding provides a way for Cisco to identify and validate that the SFP transceiver meets the requirements for the device.


Not all SFP+ or SFP transceivers may be supported by the Supervisor Engine 7L-E. For up-to-date information on which SFP+ and SFP transceivers are supported, refer to the 10-Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix or the Gigabit Ethernet Transceiver Modules Compatibility Matrix at the following URL:
