  • If the number of planned nodes does not exceed the specifications of a single cabinet, use a single cabinet. In this case, two 10GE switches are deployed in the same cabinet. Each node is connected to two 10GE switches in the base cabinet through optical fibers and optical modules.
  • If the number of planned nodes exceeds the specifications of a single cabinet, use multiple cabinets. In this case, one 10GE switch is deployed in a base cabinet, and the other 10GE switch in an expansion cabinet. Each node is connected to the 10GE switch in the local cabinet and that in the other cabinet through optical fibers and optical modules.

Cabling Example

For example, four compute nodes and four storage nodes are deployed on a 25GE network, and VBS is deployed on the storage nodes, as shown in Figure 10-83. The networking rules in other networking scenarios are the same.

Figure 10-83 Cabling of storage nodes

Procedure

  1. Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves.
  2. Determine port numbers of the node and signal cable connection modes.
  3. Obtain the required types of cables and label them.
  4. Optional: Install a pluggable optical module.

    • Wear an ESD wrist strap or ESD gloves to prevent damaging ESD-sensitive optical modules.
    • Do not reversely insert optical modules. If an optical module cannot be inserted into an optical port, do not force it in. In this case, turn it over and try again.
    • Do not remove dust-proof caps from optical connectors before connecting optical fibers to optical modules.
    1. Take out an optical module from its ESD bag and verify that the optical module is intact.
    2. Insert the optical module into an optical port on the subcard until it snaps into place and then raise the handle to lock it up, as shown in Figure 10-84.

      When the locking reed of the optical module makes a "click" sound, the optical module is installed correctly.

      Figure 10-84 Installing an optical module

  5. Connect cables according to the attached labels.

    After connecting cables to the devices, reserve adequate cable slack for ease of operation on other FRUs.

  6. Lay out the cables along the mounting bars neatly, use cable ties to bind them, and trim off the excess of cable ties using diagonal pliers.
