Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3030 Hardware Installation Guide



Switch Installation

This chapter provides instructions on how to install your Cisco Catalyst Blade Switch 3030—also
referred to as the switch module—in the Dell Modular Server Chassis and how to set up and configure
your switch module. The Dell Modular Server Chassis—also referred to as the server chassis—is a
system that supports up to ten server modules and up to four Ethernet switch modules. The switch
module is installed in one of the chassis I/O module bays on the rear panel of the server chassis.

This chapter also describes how to interpret the power-on self-test (POST) that ensures proper operation
and how to make connections to the switch.
