Three 1000BASE-X ports

Note The two 10GBASE-X ports require X2 transceiver modules; the three 1000BASE-X uplink ports require SFP transceiver modules. For X2 and SFP transceiver support, refer to the compatibility matrices at the following URL:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/modules/ps5455/products_device_support_tables_list.html

Note In chassis configurations where there are redundant supervisor engines installed, the uplink ports on the supervisor engine that is in standby mode are fully functional.

Each uplink port has a link LED associated with it.

LED
Color and Meaning

STATUS

The STATUS LED indicates the status of the supervisor engine.

Green—All diagnostics pass. The supervisor engine is operational (normal initialization sequence).

Orange—The supervisor engine is booting or running diagnostics (normal initialization sequence) or an overtemperature condition has occurred. (A minor temperature threshold has been exceeded during environmental monitoring.)

Red—The diagnostic test failed. The supervisor engine is not operational because a fault occurred during the initialization sequence or an overtemperature condition has occurred. (A major temperature threshold has been exceeded during environmental monitoring.)

ID

A blue LED that flashes at half-second intervals is used to identify the supervisor engine for servicing purposes.

SYSTEM

The SYSTEM LED indicates the status of the system components.

Green—All chassis environmental monitors are reporting OK.

Orange—A minor hardware problem has been detected.

Red—A major hardware problem has occurred.

ACTIVE

The ACTIVE LED indicates whether the supervisor engine is operating in active mode or is in standby mode.

Green—The supervisor engine is operational and active.

Orange—The supervisor engine is in standby mode.

PWR MGMT

The supervisor engine monitors each module's power requirements and status relative to the system's overall power capacity before fully powering up each module in the chassis.

Orange—Power-up mode; running self-diagnostics.

Green—Power management is functioning normally and sufficient power is available for all modules.

Orange—A minor power management problem has been detected. There is insufficient power for all modules to power up.

Red—A major power failure has occurred.

DISK 0

This LED is illuminated green when the installed Flash PC card is being accessed and is performing either a read operation or a write operation.

LINK (SFP UPLINK)

Each of the three SFP uplink ports has a LINK LED associated with it. The LINK LED indicates the link status of the corresponding port.

Green—The port is active (the link is connected and operational).

Flashing orange—The port failed diagnostics and is disabled.

Orange—The port is disabled.

Red—The supervisor engine is resetting; an overtemperature condition has occurred.

Note If the supervisor engine fails to download code and configuration information successfully during the initial reset, the LED stays red; the supervisor engine does not come online.

Off—The port is not active or the link is not connected.

MANAGEMENT port

The 10/100/1000 management port has an green LED associated with it.

Green—The port is active (the link is connected and operational).

Off—The port is not active or the link is not connected.

LINK (10GE UPLINK)

Each of the two 10GE uplink ports have a link LED associated with it.

Green—The port is active (the link is connected and operational).

Flashing orange—The port failed diagnostics and is disabled.

Orange—The port is disabled.

Red—The supervisor engine is resetting; an overtemperature condition has occurred.
