QFX5100 Management Panel

Management Panel of a QFX5100 Device

The management panel of the QFX5100 switch is found on the Field Replaceable Unit (FRU) end of the switch as shown in Figure 1 for 1 U switches and Figure 2 for the 2 U , QFX5100-96S switch. See Figure 3 and Figure 4 for FRUs and management panel detail.

The management panel consists of the following components:

  • Status LEDs

    • ALM–Alarm

      • Unlit indicates the switch is halted or that there is no alarm.

      • Red indicates a hardware fault, such as a power failure or a system shutdown due to system over-heating.

      • Amber indicates a major or minor alarm.

    • SYS–System

      • Unlit indicates the switch is powered off or halted.

      • Solid green indicates that Junos OS for QFX Series is loaded on the switch.

      • Blinking green indicates the switch is:

        • A participating member in a Virtual Chassis.

        • A participating leaf device in a Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF).

        • A participating spine device in a VCF.

        • A Routing Engine Primary in a VCF.

        • A Routing Engine Backup in a VCF.

    • MST–Primary in a QFX Virtual Chassis or Routing Engine Primary in a VCF

      • Unlit indicates the switch is a line card member in a Virtual Chassis.

      • Solid green indicates the switch is:

        • A standalone switch

        • In the primary role in a QFX Virtual Chassis

        • Is the routing engine primary in a VCF

      • Blinking green indicates the switch is the backup primary in a Virtual Chassis or the backup routing engine in a VCF.

    • ID–Identification or beacon

      • Unlit indicates the beacon feature is not enabled.

      • Blinking blue indicates the beacon feature is enabled. This feature is enabled using the request chassis beacon command.

  • 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.

  • USB port for image updates.

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

Management Port LEDs on a QFX5100 Device

The management ports (labeled C0 for 10/100/1000 Base-T and C1 for 10/100/1000 Base-T and SFP 1000 Base-X connections) on a QFX5100 switch have two LEDs that indicate link status and link activity (see Figure 5). The left LED indicates status; the right LED indicates link/activity.

Table 2 describes the chassis status LEDs on a QFX5100 switch, their colors and states, and the status they indicate. You can view the colors of the three LEDs remotely through the CLI by issuing the operational mode command show chassis led.

Table 2: Chassis Status LEDs on a QFX5100 Switch

Name

Color

State

Description

ALM–Alarm or beacon

Unlit

Off

The switch is halted or there is no alarm.

Red

On steadily

A major hardware fault has occurred, such as a temperature alarm or power failure, and the switch has halted. Power off the QFX5100 switch by setting the AC power source outlet to the OFF (O) position, or unplugging the AC power cords. Correct any voltage or site temperature issues, and allow the switch to cool down. Power on the QFX5100 switch and monitor the power supply and fan LEDs to help determine where the error is occurring.

Amber

On steadily

A minor alarm has occurred, such as a software error. Power off the QFX5100 switch by setting the AC power source outlet to the OFF (O) position, or unplugging the AC power cords. Power on the QFX5100 switch and monitor the status LEDs to ensure that Junos OS boots properly.

SYS–System

Unlit

Off

The switch is powered off or halted.

Green

On steadily

Junos OS for QFX Series is loaded on the switch.

Green

Blinking

The switch is participating as:

  • A member in a QFX Virtual Chassis

  • A leaf device in a Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF)

  • A spine device in a VCF

  • A Routing Engine Primary in a VCF

  • A Routing Engine Backup in a VCF

MST–Primary in a QFX Virtual Chassis or Routing Engine Primary in a VCF

Unlit
