Installing the Switch Module into the Server Chassis

Waiting for POST to Complete

Follow these steps:

Step 1

Wait for the switch to complete POST. It might take several minutes for the switch to complete POST.

Step 2

Verify that POST has completed by confirming that the System Status/ID LED is off and that the
Console LED is solid green or amber. If the switch fails POST because of a misconfiguration or error,
the System Status/ID LED blinks green, and the Console LED is off.

Log into the DRAC/MC console to get more details about the failure mode.

POST errors are usually fatal. Call Cisco Customer Support immediately if your switch fails POST.

See item 4 in

Figure 1-1 on page 1-2

for the location of the System Status/ID LED and the Console LED.

Step 3

Wait for the switch to complete flash initialization. When you see the prompt Press Return to Get
, press Return or Enter.

Step 4

Make sure that the System Status/ID LED on the switch module is off and that the Console LED is green
or amber. This means that the switch module is operating properly.

Step 5

See the

“Completing the Initial Configuration” section on page 2-11

for instructions on setting up and

initially configuring the switch module.
