[EX/QFX] Configure an EX4600-EM-8S expansion Module in a QFX5100-24Q Device (VC and/or standalone)

Article ID: KB29662 KB Last Updated: 19 Sep 2016Version: 1.0
Summary:

This article explains how to configure your QFX5100 to detect an already installed EX4600-EM-8S expansion module (CLI).

Symptoms:

QFX does not detect expansion module EX4600-EM-8S after installation. The following log messages are generated:

CHASSISD_PIC_CMD_TIMEOUT: fpc_pic_online_cmd_timeout: attempt to bring PIC 1 in FPC 0 online timed out
Cause:

Solution:

Overview

The QFX5100-24Q is a 40-Gigabit Ethernet QSFP+ switch with 24 high-density QSFP+ ports. Each QSFP+ port can operate as a native 40 Gbps port or as 4 independent 10 Gbps ports. The QFX5100-24Q switch has two bays on the port panel for optional expansion modules. The QFX5100-24Q supports two expansion modules to increase port density:

1-QFX-EM-4Q, which provides 4 additional 40-Gigabit Quad SFP+ (QSFP+) ports

2-EX4600-EM-8F, which provides 8 additional 10-Gigabit Ethernet Enhanced Small Form-Factor Pluggable (SFP+) ports.

See QFX5100 Device Hardware Overview for more information about the expansion modules.

Installation

To install and configure the QFX5100-24Q in order for it to recognize the EX4600-EM-8F expansion module, see the following documents:

Once the EX4600-EM-8F module has been installed following the above mentioned guides, we must configure the System Mode on the QFX in order for it to recognize the module, otherwise we are going to get the following outputs:

Example:

In the following example, we will install two EX4600-EM-8F modules on FPC0 PIC1 and PIC2.

Issue the following command:

request chassis system-mode flexi-pic-mode all-members

See Configuring the System Mode

We will get the following output:


{master:0}
root@QFX51004> request chassis system-mode flexi-pic-mode all-members   <<< changing system-mode
fpc0:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

System-mode has changed. This will restart the Packet Forwarding Engine (PFE).

Caution: The Packet Forwarding Engine on the switch is restarted when you issue system mode changes. As a result, you might experience packet loss on the switch.

Note: When you request the system mode change, you must reboot for the system mode to take effect.

Reboot the system:

root@QFX51004> request system reboot all-members    <<< rebooting
Reboot the system ? [yes,no] (no) yes
