Document Conventions This section describes text formatting conventions and important notices formats. Text Formatting The narrative-text formatting conventions that are used in this document are as follows: bold text Identifies command names Identifies the names of user-manipulated GUI elements Identifies keywords and operands Identifies text to enter at the GUI or CLI Provides emphasis Identifies variables Identifies paths and Internet addresses Identifies document titles Identifies CLI output Identifies syntax examples italic text code text For readability, command names in the narrative portions of this guide are presented in mixed lettercase: for example, switchShow.
In actual examples, command lettercase is often all lowercase. Otherwise, this manual specifically notes those cases in which a command is case sensitive. The ficoncupset and ficoncupshow commands are an exception to this convention. Notes, Cautions, and Warnings The following notices appear in this document. Note A note provides a tip, emphasizes important information, or provides a reference to related information.
Caution A caution alerts you to potential damage to hardware, firmware, software, or data. Additional Information This section lists additional Brocade and industry-specific documentation that you might find helpful. Fabric OS? Extended Fabrics Supports the reliable, high-speed connectivity of SilkWorm switches over dark fiber or Dense Wave Division Multiplexing DWDM equipment at distances up to kilometers to enhance business continuance operations. Fabric Watch Continuously monitors SAN fabrics for potential faults based on thresholds set for a variety of SAN fabric elements and events—automatically alerting administrators to potential problems before they become costly failures.
Automatically groups SAN fabric-connected devices into logical zones that restrict access to "member" devices in the zone. Advanced Zoning uses hardware enforcement at both the port and WWN level to provide more robust data protection.
Secure Fabric OS Provides a comprehensive security solution to help protect mission-critical data. Key features include centralized policy-based security management, management data encryption, and authentication to create a fabric-wide trusted environment with control over all levels of fabric access and communication. Best practice guides, including the SAN Security Best Practice Guide, white papers, online demos, data sheets, and other documentation is available through the Brocade Partner Web site.

Document Feedback Because quality is our first concern at Brocade, we have made every effort to ensure the accuracy and completeness of this document. However, if you find an error or an omission, or you think that a topic needs further development, we want to hear from you.
Forward your feedback to: documentation brocade. The SilkWorm E can operate in a fabric containing multiple switches or as the only switch in a fabric. This chapter provides the following information:? The chassis can be installed as a standalone unit or mounted in a standard Electronic Industries Association EIA 19 in.
All LEDs are on the port side of the switch: the nonport side is used for serial-number labeling and to allow the free flow of air.
The SilkWorm E enclosure has forced-air cooling, with the fans pushing the air from the nonport side of the chassis through the enclosure, exhausting to the port side. There are two labels on the rear of the chassis. This CD provides an application for quickly and easily setting up the switch configuration. For the SilkWorm E, the maximum number of ports per trunk is four. The Fibre Channel ports are numbered from left to right, color-coded into groups of four to indicate the groups of ports that can be used in the same interswitch link ISL trunking group.
The number of trunking ISLs can be from two through four ports within a single trunk group. The trunk groups are shown in Figure Supported Optional Features The SilkWorm E supports the following optional Brocade software, which you can activate by purchasing the corresponding license key:? A second Ports on Demand license is required to activate ports 12 through As your needs increase, you can activate unlicensed ports by purchasing and installing the Brocade Ports on Demand optional licensed product.
After it has been installed, the license appears under the licenseShow command as Ports on Demand license. Ports on Demand is ready to be unlocked in the switch firmware.
