Installing the CNA Module on the JSA7500 Appliance

To install the Converged Network Adapter (CNA) module on a JSA7500:

  1. Power down the JSA7500 unit.
  2. Unscrew the two thumbscrews on the right-most blank IOC modules and remove the dummy tray.
    • The IOC module supports 10G connectivity with SFP+ transceivers. It supports only 1G connectivity using dual-rate optics: UNIV-SFPP-DUAL-SR and UNIV-SFPP-DUAL-LR.

    • The JSA7500 supports only the 2-port 10G IOC module in a one-half height tray.

  3. Insert the 2-port 10G IOC module firmly and screw in the two thumbscrews. See Figure 1.

  4. Power on the JSA7500 unit and watch it boot on the serial console.
  5. Verify that the link and activity LED on the new 2-port 10G IOC module light up when you connect the ports to your Ethernet switch with a duplex multi mode LC/LC MMF fiber optic cable.
  6. Log in to the admin console. You should now see four more Ethernet interfaces appear as 2-5. The four ports are labeled 0, 1, 2, and 3 and should map to Ethernet interfaces as follows (default in Linux):
    • 0 = eth0

    • 1 = eth1

    • 2 = eth2

    • 3 = eth3
