Management Ports Each BlackDiamond management switch fabric module (MSM) has a 10/100BASE-TX Ethernet management port. This access allows you to view and locally manage the switch configurations. NOTE You must use an industrial-grade compact flash card in the external compact flash slot of the MSM. Full-duplex support means that frames can be transmitted and received simultaneously. Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports and 10-Gigabit Ethernet ports operate only in full-duplex mode in accordance with technical standards. including capturing debug information and core dump files. For more information about configuring a BlackDiamond switch. The external compact flash slot supports third-party compact flash cards. see the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide. See the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide for more information regarding the use of the external compact flash memory card. Most ports on an Extreme Networks switch will auto-negotiate duplex operation in the default configuration.About the BlackDiamond 8800 Series Switches The specific capabilities of the switch are determined by the module series installed in the chassis. This port allows you to communicate directly with the central processing unit (CPU) of the switch. For more information about individual I/O modules and management modules (MSMs).

A BlackDiamond module consists of a printed circuit board mounted on a metal panel that acts as the insertion vehicle in the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches. LEDs on the module front panel provide information about the operating status of the modules. The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches support the modules listed in Table 3 and Table 4. The module carrier also includes ejector/injector levers and captive retaining screws at each end of the module front panel.2 BlackDiamond 8000 Series Modules This chapter describes modules for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches and includes the following sections: ● Overview of the BlackDiamond 8000 Series Modules on page 19 ● Management Switch Modules (MSM) on page 21 ● I/O Modules on page 25 Overview of the BlackDiamond 8000 Series Modules Modules available for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches include management switch modules (MSMs) and I/O modules.

CAUTION
Do not attempt to combine modules from the BlackDiamond 8800 series and BlackDiamond 12800 series product
lines. When a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch is running, ExtremeXOS software will not recognize an installed
BlackDiamond 12800 series module.

Management Switch Modules (MSM)
The following MSMs are available for the BlackDiamond 8800 series switches:

8500-MSM24

8800 series MSMs

MSM-G8X

MSM-48

MSM-48c

8900-MSM128

The MSMs provide the active switching fabric and CPU control subsystem for the switch. One MSM is
required for switch operation; however, adding a second MSM to the chassis increases reliability and
throughput.
A compact flash slot allows you to insert an external compact flash memory card. (See “External
Compact Flash Memory Card” on page 14 for more information about Extreme Networks-supported
compact flash cards.)

Redundant MSM Activity
The BlackDiamond 8800 series switches can run with a single MSM installed. When you install an
additional MSM, one MSM operates as the primary MSM and the other becomes the backup
(secondary) MSM. The primary MSM is responsible for upper-layer protocol processing and system
management functions. Packet handling is distributed among the CPUs of all installed MSMs.
When you save the switch configuration, it is saved to all MSMs.
Selection of the primary MSM occurs automatically. The following examples describe the selection
process:

When a switch boots with two MSMs installed, the MSM in the lower-numbered slot becomes the
primary MSM. In the BlackDiamond 8810 switch this is slot 5; in the BlackDiamond 8806 switch, this
is slot 3.

When a switch boots with a single MSM (regardless of the slot position), it is selected as the primary
MSM.
If a second MSM is added to the switch after it has been powered up, the added MSM becomes the
backup MSM. MSMs that operate as backup MSMs can be inserted and removed without disrupting
network services.

If you remove the primary MSM while the switch is operating, the backup MSM performs a soft
reset and then becomes the primary MSM.
For example, in a BlackDiamond 8810 switch with a primary MSM in slot 5 and a backup MSM in
slot 6, if you remove the primary MSM from slot 5, the backup MSM in slot 6 becomes the primary
MSM.

The BlackDiamond 8000 series MSMs have the following features on the front panel:

Console port—DB-9 serial port used to connect a terminal and perform local management.

Management port—A 10/100 Mbps Ethernet management port used to connect an Ethernet cable
directly from your laptop to the switch to view and locally manage the switch configurations. This
port can also be used to connect the system into a parallel management network for administration.

A button—Allows you to select the alternate BootROM image when you power on the module. To
use the alternate BootROM image, you must hold the A button while pressing the R button
simultaneously.

D button—Allows you to force a system dump that dumps the debug information into NVRAM.
This information is available on the next reboot. No core file is created.

R button—Allows you to reset the MSM without removing the module from the chassis.

Compact flash slot

In addition, the MSM-G8X has eight SFP data ports. These data ports operate the same as the ports on
the G24X I/O module. (See “G24X I/O Module” on page 28 for more information about these ports.)
The eight data ports are integrated into the MSM and managed by a separate I/O processor, which
retains control of the eight Ethernet ports on the MSM during a failover. The backup MSM can take
control of the ports.

BlackDiamond 8000 Series Modules
The 8500-MSM24, MSM-48c and 8900-MSM128 modules have a slot for one of the following option
cards:

S-G8Xc—Adds eight 1-gigabit SFP data ports to the MSM. These data ports operate the same as the
ports on the G24Xc I/O module. (See “G24Xc I/O Module” on page 40 for more information.)

S-10G1Xc—Adds one 10-gigabit XFP data port to the MSM. This data port operates the same as the
ports on the 10G4Xc I/O module. (See “10G4Xc I/O Module” on page 38 for more information.)

Different MSM models have different memory and processing capacity. For details of feature support in
the MSMs, see the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide.
NOTE
See the ExtremeXOS Concepts Guide and the ExtremeXOS Command Reference Guide for more information about
numbering conventions for the modules and ports, as well as configuration and display information.

Installing Cable
Consider the following recommendations when you connect cable to your network equipment:

Examine cable for cuts, bends, and nicks.

Support cable using a cable manager that is mounted above connectors to avoid unnecessary weight
on the cable bundles.

Use cable managers to route cable bundles to the left and right of the network equipment to
maximize accessibility to the connectors.

Provide enough slack, approximately 2 to 3 inches (5.08 to 7.62 cm), to provide proper strain relief as
shown in Figure 42.

Bundle cable using velcro straps to avoid injuring cables.

If you build your own cable, be sure that cable is properly crimped.

When installing a patch panel using twisted pair wiring, untwist no more than 1 inch (2.54 cm) of
the cable to avoid radio frequency (RF) interference.

Discharge the RJ-45 Ethernet cable before plugging it into a port on the switch.

Use plenum-rated cable when it is necessary for safety and fire rating requirements. Consult your
local building codes to determine when it is appropriate to use plenum-rated cable, or refer to IEC
standard 850.

Keep all ports and connectors free of dust.
CAUTION

Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable can build up ESD charges when being pulled into a new installation. Before
connecting any category 5 UTP cable to the switch, discharge ESD from the cable by plugging the RJ-45 connector
into a LAN Static Discharge device or use an equivalent method.

bend radius
SPG_008

Fiber Optic Cable
Fiber optic cable must be handled carefully during installation. Every cable has a minimum bend
radius, for example, and fibers will be damaged if the cables are bent too sharply. It is also important
not to stretch the cable during installation. We recommend that the bend radius for fiber optic cable
equal 2 inches (5.08 cm) minimum for each 90 degree turn as shown in Figure 43.
NOTE
Kinks and sharp bends can destroy or impair the cable’s ability to convey light pulses accurately from one end of the
cable to the other. Use care in dressing the optical fiber cables: provide satisfactory strain relief to support the cable
and maintain an adequate bend radius at all cable turns, particularly where the cable connects to the I/O module.

When you handle modules, optical devices, or other modular accessories, use an ESD-preventive wrist
strap to reduce the risk of electronic damage to the equipment. Transport PC boards only in electrostatic
packaging. Always place PC boards on a grounded surface before working on them.
To install a module in a BlackDiamond 8800 series switch:
1 Attach the ESD-preventive wrist strap to your bare wrist and connect the metal end to the ground
receptacle at the top left corner of the chassis.
2 Select a slot for the module. (See “Module Slot Assignments” on page 109.)
CAUTION
MSMs and I/O modules only fit properly into their designated slots. Forceful insertion into the wrong slot type
can damage the module.

3 Remove a blank front panel from the chassis slot, if applicable.
NOTE
Any unoccupied module slot in the chassis should have a blank faceplate installed to ensure satisfactory
protection from EMI and to maintain adequate airflow through the chassis.

CAUTION
There are two styles of ejector/injector handles on the BlackDiamond 8800 series modules. Pay careful attention to
the instructions in the next step.

8 Using a #2 Phillips screwdriver, lock the module into place in one of the following ways (Figure 70):

If the captive screw on each handle has a yellow band around the head of the screw, turn the
screw on each injector/ejector handle clockwise and completely down. When the screw is fully
tightened, the yellow band around the captive screw is completely hidden.
CAUTION

Be careful to avoid over-torquing and stripping the screw heads.

If the captive screw on each handle has a red line on the head (see Figure 71), turn each captive
screw one-quarter turn (90 degrees) clockwise. When the module is correctly locked, the red line
on the captive screw in each injector/ejector handle is in a vertical position.
CAUTION

Be sure to turn each captive screw only 90 degrees or one-quarter turn clockwise. Tightening the captive screws
beyond 90 degrees will damage the injector/ejector handles on the modules.
