Installing the CX912

Installing the CX912


Install the CX912 in the E9000 chassis. Before the operation, become familiar with the hardware devices.



The chassis has been installed.


The following tools are available:

  • Protective gloves
  • Electrostatic discharge (ESD) gloves
  • Phillips screwdriver (PH3 is 8 mm or 0.31 in.)


Figure 3-1 Installation process


  1. Determine the position for installing the CX912 in the chassis.

    Figure 3-2 Slot numbers

  2. Remove the switch module filler panel.

    1. Use a Phillips screwdriver to loosen the two M3 captive screws on the switch module filler panel. See (1) in Figure 3-3.
      Figure 3-3 Removing the switch module filler panel
    2. Raise the two handles on the switch module filler panel completely, and pull the filler panel horizontally out of the chassis. See (2) and (3) in Figure 3-3.
    3. Store the switch module filler panel for future use.

  3. Install the CX912.

    1. Raise the two ejector levers on the CX912 completely and push the CX912 horizontally into the chassis as far as it will go. See (1) and step (2) in Figure 3-4.
      Figure 3-4 Installing the CX912
    2. Lower the two ejector levers on the CX912 until the CX912 is completely inserted. See (3) in Figure 3-4.
    3. Use a Phillips screwdriver to tighten the two M3 captive screws on the CX912. See (4) in Figure 3-4.

  4. Determine the connection relationships between signal cables and ports on the CX912. Figure 3-5 shows the port types and numbers of the CX912.

    BMC serial port


    SYS serial port


    GE electrical port(reserved)


    10GE optical port


    8G FC optical port



  5. (Optional) Connect a serial cable.

    Figure 3-6 Connecting a serial cable

    The BMC serial port, SYS serial port, are standard RJ-45 ports and are connected in the same way.

  6. Connect a 10GE or FC optical module and optical fiber.

    1. Determine the optical module type and the optical port to be connected depending on site requirements.
    2. Push the optical module into the optical port until the optical module is locked in place, as shown in Figure 3-7.

    3. Remove the dust-proof cap from the optical fiber. See (1) in Figure 3-8.
      Figure 3-8 Connecting an optical fiber
      1. Use the same method to connect an optical fiber to a 10GE optical port or 8G FC optical port.
    4. Insert the optical fiber into the optical module. See (2) in Figure 3-8.

  7. Check the indicator status after the CX912 is powered on.

    For details, see Table 2-7.

  8. Follow-up Procedure

    See section Configuring the CX912.
