Limitations: There are configuration limitations when using Generation 1 line cards in a Cisco MDS 9513 director.

The Cisco MDS 9500 Supervisor-2 Module is designed to provide support for up to 528 Fibre Channel ports in a single Cisco MDS 9513 director chassis. The Supervisor-2 Module supports a mixture of Generation 2 (Gen-2) 4 Gpbs and 10 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching line cards and Generation 1 (Gen-1) IP Services, Storage Services, and 2 Gbps Fibre Channel Switching line cards.

However, when Gen-1 line cards (#2116, #2132, #2208, #2214, #2400) are used with Gen-2 line cards (#2404, #2412, #2424, #2448), the maximum number of addressable connections is limited to 252. For example, if a Gen-1 Storage Services Module with 32 Fibre Channel ports is installed, only 9 Gen-2 24-port Fibre Channel Modules with 216 ports may also be installed. In this Gen-1 and Gen-2 line card example, only 10 of the 11 9513 director feature slots and only 248 of potential 528 Fibre Channel ports may configured.

Port index availability: The Cisco MDS 9500 directors are designed to operate with any combination of Cisco MDS 9000 modules. However, you should be aware of the maximum port availability your chassis can support. A port index is an internally assigned number that Cisco SAN-OS uses to switch data packets within the director or fabric switch. When the maximum number of port indexes is reached in a chassis, any modules remaining or added to the chassis will not boot up. The number of physical ports on a Fibre Channel module is equal to its port index. However, for Gigabit Ethernet modules (IPS-8, IPS-4, and MPS-14/2), one physical port is equal to four port indexes (virtual ports). The Gigabit Ethernet modules use one port for iSCSI and the remaining three ports for FC IP tunnels.

Table 1 lists the physical ports and port indexes (virtual ports) available per Cisco MDS 9000 module.

Using any combination of modules that include a Generation 1 module limits the port index availability to 252 on the Cisco MDS 9513 and Cisco MDS 9509 directors. Generation 1 modules use contiguous port indexes where the system assigns a block of port index numbers contiguously starting from slot 1.

Table 2 shows a valid sample configuration for maximum capacity within the port index limits. The table lists a mixture of Generation 1 and Generation 2 modules on a Cisco MDS 9509 director.

Using any combination of only Generation 2 modules allows a maximum of 528 port indexes on a Cisco MDS 9513 director. Generation 2 modules do not need contiguous port indexes. Generation 2 modules will use the available ports in the slot that it is installed and then borrow available ports from the supervisors. It will then restart at slot 1 of the chassis until it has the number of port indexes necessary.

Table 4 shows a valid sample configuration for maximum capacity within the port-index limits. The table only lists Generation 2 modules in a Cisco MDS 9513 director.

If your problem can be resolved with a CRU (for example, keyboard, mouse, speaker, memory, or hard disk drive), IBM may ship the CRU to you for you to install. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your machine and are available from IBM at any time on your request.

Based upon availability, CRUs will be shipped for next-business-day delivery. IBM specifies, in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU, whether a defective CRU must be returned to IBM. When return is required, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and you may be charged for the replacement CRU if IBM does not receive the defective CRU within 15 days of your receipt of the replacement.
