Brocade Encryption Switch
When a customer purchases a Brocade X6-8 Director switch, it ships with blanks installed in the X6-8 chassis. Any additional FC32-48 port blades will have shipped separately, and will need to be installed into the chassis prior to power-on and boot-up.
The chassis supports up to 8 FC32-48 port blades, however the switch may be purchased with less than a full compliment of blades to populate the chassis.
- FC32-48 port blades are always installed in pairs.
- Slots 3-6 are the left bank. Slots 9-12 are the right bank. For each pair of blades install one blade in the left bank and the other in the right bank. Refer to table 1 for blade positioning.
- Make sure to slot the blades correctly into the chassis and use the levers to lock the blades into place.
- Be sure to also tighten the blade screw to the chassis after installation, or the switch may not recognize the blade upon boot-up.
