Connecting 40GE/100GE Ports (Applicable to V500R007C30)

Connecting 40GE/100GE Ports (Applicable to V500R007C30)

Use optical fibers to connect 40GE/100GE ports on a controller enclosure to ports on an application server to set up service channels for data exchange between the storage device and the application server.

Prerequisites

The required installation tools and materials include:

  • Optical modules
  • Optical fibers
  • Binding straps
  • Diagonal pliers

Context

Do not look into an optical port without eye protection.

When connecting optical fibers, note the following:

  • Optical modules are electrostatic sensitive and must be placed in an ESD and dust-proof environment during transportation, storage, and use.
  • When connecting cables, select proper cables according to site requirements and label information.
  • Optical fiber connectors must be kept clean and free from scratches.
  • Cover unused optical fibers and optical modules with protective caps.
  • The bend radius of an optical fiber must be larger than 5 cm (1.97 inches).

To improve system reliability, read and comply with the following rules:

  • 2 U controller enclosure and 3 U controller enclosure: In the same storage system, the Ethernet port connection is symmetrical between controller A and controller B. That is, the interface modules of the two controllers reside in slots with the same slot ID and use the ports in the same positions.
  • 6 U controller enclosure: In the same storage system, the Ethernet port connection is symmetrical between controllers A and B or between controllers C and D. That is, the interface modules of the two controllers reside in slots with the same slot ID and use the ports in the same positions.

A storage device can be connected to an application server in two ways:

Figure 6-55 40GE/100GE ports on a 3 U controller enclosure directly connected to an application server

Figure 6-56 40GE/100GE ports on a 6 U controller enclosure directly connected to an application server
Figure 6-57 40GE/100GE ports connecting to an application server through switches (four redundant links for a 2 U controller enclosure)
Figure 6-58 40GE/100GE ports connecting to an application server through switches (four redundant links for a 3 U controller enclosure)

Figure 6-59 40GE/100GE ports connecting to an application server through switches (four redundant links for a 6 U controller enclosure)
NOTE:

In the preceding example, four redundant links connect to two controllers of a 6 U controller enclosure. Connecting to four controllers is similar, that is, each controller connects to each switch.

Before setting up connections through Ethernet switches, you are advised to prepare the following:

  • Plan switch network segments and allocate switch ports to each network segment.
  • The first and last ports on a switch are typically used to connect to other switches.

The following procedure uses 100GE ports as an example to describe how to set up connections between the storage system and application server.

Procedure

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap, gloves, and clothes.
  2. (Optional) Install an optical module to the 100GE port on the storage device.

    NOTE:

    If an optical module has already been installed to the 100GE port, go to 3.

    1. Remove the protective cap from the optical module, as shown in step 1 of Figure 6-60.
    2. Insert the optical module into the 100GE port, as shown in step 2 of Figure 6-60.
    NOTE:

    Insert the optical module horizontally to prevent damaging the module.

    Figure 6-60 Installing an optical module

  3. Remove the protective cap from the optical fiber connector and insert the connector into the 100GE port on the storage device, as shown in Figure 6-61.

    NOTE:

    Insert the optical fibers until they click into place.

    Figure 6-61 Connecting an optical fiber

  4. Set up a connection to the 100GE port of the application server.

    • Direct connection: Connect the other end of the optical fiber to the 100GE port on the application server.
    • Switch-based connection: Connect the other end of the optical fiber to a switch. Then connect the switch to the application server.

  5. Repeat 2 to 4 to connect other front-end ports on the storage device to the application server.
  6. Lay out and bind the optical fibers.

    NOTE:

    For details about how to lay out and bind cables, see General Cable Routing Principles and Cable Routing and Bundling Basics.
