NX7K(7010) - Installing Nexus 7000 F1-Series 32-Port 10 Gigabit Ethernet Module

Hello, 

We have several N7Ks and we recently purchased some Nexus 7000 F1-Series 32-Port 1 and 10 Gigabit Ethernet Modules. I'm planning on installing those modules along with the 10Gig SFPs. I have inserted all of the SPFs into the ports of the modules. I wanted to check with you experts to see if there was any type of procedure that I should be aware of or any considerations that I should take into before I install those modules. I was curious to know if there is any type of configuration that I have to perform when I install the modules. 

 

Thanks in advance. 

Best, ~zK

Good Luck.

BTW, your OS seems to a little old. Since you are adding modules to your switches, it maybe a good time to upgrade the OS as well.

Hi,There is no special

Hi,

There is no special configuration or procedure need it.  The blades are hot swap able, so you can insert them while the switch is on or if you have an outage window, you can turn off the switch, put in the module in and then turn the switch back on.

As for handling the hardware, follow these general guide lines:

Preventing Electrostatic Discharge Damage

Electrostatic discharge (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.

I have populated all of the 32 ports with the 10Gig SFPs. My colleague advised me not to put the SFPs into the line card before inserting the Line Card. Would having the SFPs inserted into the port cause any type issues?

I inserted the Line cards with the 10Gig SFPs inserted and no issues occurred. 

 

Thanks, Rezan!
