Inspecting a Switch

Inspecting a Switch

You can use SmartKit to inspect a switch or use the serial port to log in to the command-line interface (CLI) and run commands to check the health status and operating status of a switch.

Inspecting Switch Status Using SmartKit

Fibre Channel switches are used to interconnect controller enclosures. You can use SmartKit to check switches to familiarize yourself with the operating status of the switches.


SmartKit has been successfully installed.


  1. (Optional) Create and configure an inspection template.

    The standard inspection template is designed for V100R001. To inspect devices with different software versions, switch the inspection template.

    1. Start SmartKit.
    2. Choose Configure > Configure Inspection Template.

      The Configure Inspection Template dialog box is displayed.

    3. Click New.
    4. In the dialog box that is displayed, set Inspection Template and Basic Template. In the Available Device area, select the current device version and click .

      The selected devices are displayed in the Selected Device list.

    5. Click Next.
    6. In the dialog box that is displayed, select items to be inspected.
    7. Click Finish.

      The inspection template is configured.

  2. Create a project.
    1. Choose Project > New Project.

      The New Project dialog box is displayed.

    2. Enter Project Name, Project path, and Project description, and click OK.

      The project is created.

      You can use either a standard or customized inspection template.

  3. Add devices to be inspected.
    1. Choose NE > Add NE.

      The Add NE dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 9-17.

      Figure 9-17  Adding an NE

    2. In the Connection area, select Telnet. In the NE Information area, enter IP Address, User name, Password, and Port number.

      The default value of Port number is 23.

    3. Click Add.

      The network elements (NEs) are added and are displayed in the NE management list of SmartKit.

  4. Click . The inspection starts.
  5. Create an inspection report.
    1. Click .

      The Create Report dialog box is displayed.

    2. In the Create Report dialog box, set Report Template and Report dimension to Report for Engineer and Check item dimension, respectively. Then configure Report Type, Report Format, and Saving Path based on site requirements.
    3. Click OK.

      The Creating Report dialog box is displayed.

    4. After the report is created, click Open the Directory Holding the Report.

      You can view the created inspection report in the opened path.

Follow-up Procedure

If a switch inspection report fails to be created, contact technical support engineers.

Checking Switch Status Using the CLI

If SmartKit is not installed, you can use the command-line interface (CLI) to check the health and operating status of a switch.


To query switch information, you must use the serial port to log in to the CLI and run required commands. You can use a terminal program (such as PuTTY) to log in to the CLI of the switch.
  • This section uses PuTTY as an example. You can download PuTTY from chiark website.
  • An earlier version of PuTTY may cause a login failure. Therefore, you are advised to use PuTTY of the latest version.


  1. Run PuTTY.

    The PuTTY Configuration dialog box is displayed, as shown in Figure 9-18.

    Figure 9-18  PuTTY Configuration dialog box

  2. Set Connection type to Serial and Speed to 9600.
  3. Click Open, and log in to the serial port.


    You can set a login password at your first login and use the password for following logins.

  4. Run the display health command to check switch health status. You can use this command to check device health status, including information about the device temperature, power supply, fan, CPU and memory usage, and storage media usage.
