QFX5200 Switch Management

 

QFX5200 Management Panel Overview

The management panel allows you to have a management channel into the switch that is separate from production traffic. The management panel is found on the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) end of the QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L and on the port panel of the QFX5200-48Y.

The management panel consists of the following components:

  • Chassis status LEDs

  • Switch product number

  • Management Ports C0 and C1

    • C0–Use the RJ-45 connectors for 10/100/1000 BaseT or to cable a virtual management Ethernet (VME) interface for spine members in a VCF. See Connect a Device to a Network for Out-of-Band Management.

      Note

      For product SKUs with C0 available in both copper and fiber, the copper C0 has priority over fiber C0.

    • C1–Use the SFP connector for 1000 BaseX on QFX5200-32C only.

  • USB port for image updates.

  • Console port (RJ-45) to support RS-232 serial ports. The LEDs above the port indicate status and link.

QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L Management Port and Console Port LEDs

The management ports and console port on a QFX5200-32C and QFX5200-32C-L have two LEDs that indicate link status and link activity. The management ports are labeled C0 for 10/100/1000 BASE-T and C1 for 10/100/1000 BASE-T and SFP 1000 BASE-X connections. The left LED indicates status; the right LED indicates link/activity.

Table 1 describes the management ports and Table 2 the console LED.
