Reference Dell 6248, 7048 or force S50N 10?


We want to improve our switches ISCSI 5424 to Dell Powerconnect 6248, 7048, or Force 10 S50N toggle. The switches will be devoted to traffic for 3 en berries Equallogic ISCSI must be able to support a few additional tables.

Any advice?

Thank you.

Ok thank you.

  • Reference Dell 6248: hot swapping and upgrade battery links

    I have a set of switches Dell 6248.  I have a few questions to explore:

    (1) can I add/remove the CX4 cables while the switch is working?  (I guess it's the same rules as a cable normal Ethernet...)

    (2) can I add/remove modules while the switch is working?

    First scenario I'm looking at: extend the stack on a stacked rack.

    I think the process here is, install a switch of spare with stacking module, run off battery cables to the battery, breaking and re-Assembly of the ring, then turn on the switch, confirm the ID stack and connectivity and migrate customers to it.  I can totally hot cables plug the CS4, right?

    Next scenario I'm curious: upgrade of 12G to 48G stack.

    Can I exchange the accumulated 12 GB card and swap the 48G card in when the switch is on, or do I have to turn it off?  Connectors on the 48G card the same?  (CX4..)  Can I / layout 48G and 12G cards in a pile during my upgrade?  Is the maximum length of cable the same (3 m) on a stack of 48G?

    Thank you!


    Hey Danny,

    The stackable modules are not hot-swappable. The cables are, but for the modules to detect that it must present when the switch is started. A reboot is also required for stacking on these ports using Ethernet. Yes 48 GB stackable modules also have a 3 meter cable.

  • Reference Dell 6248 as default gateway - next hop router

    Hi all

    I guess it's a matter of very basic network design. Good practice / can I use Dell 6248 layer 3 switch as the gateway / next hop router, even if the correct entry door is directly connected to the same subnet / vlan?

    The problem is that we are making changes to our network, and have several routers on the edge of our network configured static routes so they can achieve our other subnets, local and remote. These static routes will need to be changed when we move from one circuit to another, but some border routers are managed provider, and it is inconvenient to reschedule. Also, sellers will have to do more than once, the road changes if we want to clean our ip addressing scheme after the move. Once the changes are made, the topology of the network likely will not change for a long time, so I would stick with static routing. Given that we can grasp and control the static routes in our Dell 6248, can we just say sellers use our Dell switch as the next hop router when they change their static routes?

    I know that ip redirects could try to "correct" this inefficient configuration, and that could cause problems, at least during the transition phase. On a small network with 10 servers, 100 computers and 80 phones, is it without further consequence of routing for the Dell 6248 layer 3 switch, or is this something configuration you should avoid (for other reasons)? Thanks for your understanding!

    Without seeing a topology, you may be a little difficult to give recommendations. Is the 6248 your switch? It connects to your firewall? All edge switches are like L3 switches that are basically their own broadcast domain? If so, then what you are wanting to do would work. All edge switches have a static route of coverage which directed traffic to the 6248. You then place a static route pointing to the firewall on the 6248.

    If all switches are in L2 and the 6248 mode is the only L3 switch on the network. Then the switches will not need static routes.

    Hi, I use a Dell 6248 switch and I want to spend the vlan of a particular device, but I do not know on which port the device is connected. How can I find this information without having to physically go to the switch.

  • Replace the battery. Reference Dell 6248


    We have a set of three Dell Powerconnect 6248 switches.

    One of the switches must be replaced with the new one (same model).

    the well known "pwcnt_stacking_switches.pdf" document does not say how to replace a member of the battery,

    just how to add additional, or to remove switch a.

    It is said in the documentation for the 3524 powerconnect switches:

    Exchange of stacking of members
    If a member of the stack with the same unit ID replaces an existing UnitID with the same ID of the unit, the
    the previous device configuration is applied to the inserted stack Member

    Even apply to 6248? This approach works?

    How a stand-alone switch can be prepared to be added to the stack as some number of particular unit (excluding implementation stack-port mode battery)?

    is it

    Renumber (conf) #switch


    Yes, guess I replace unit Number or number 2. (out of three)

    Once I have remove the old unit 2 and insert a new one, the new switch will get UnitID = 4.

    After I using renumber

    switch 4 renumber 2

    He will get all the previously attributed to the old switch 2 port configuration?

    I intend to install a new chassis Dell M1000e with Dell M/o aggregator. During the time of solution, I have a few questions about correspondences between the physical uplink with NDC blade ports ports. A Please check the config below and specify my queries?

    My hardware:

    • 1 x Dell M1000e
    • 2 x M i/o aggregator (A1 & A2)
    • 16 x M630 Blade (Qlogic 57840 S ANC four ports card)

    I want to use these two modules for my blades 4-port Quad and the confusion I had, how to associate these 16 ports (8 ports of each module) to the server blade and the amount of bandwidth I will get by blade with redundancy.

    Oriented server ports are configured automatically as part of the aggregation of links groups if the server is configured for the LACP Protocol. Static GAL is not supported.

    You will use the segregation network VLAN. A VLAN for network traffic and the other for the CF. Here are the commands to configure interfaces for different VLANS.


    Dell (conf) # tengigabit interface 0/16

    Dell(conf-if-te-0/16) # vlan unidentified 4

    Output Dell(conf-if-te-0/16) #.


    Dell (conf) # tengigabit interface 0/16

    The tag vlan Dell(conf-if-te-0/16) # 4

    Output Dell(conf-if-te-0/16) #.

    Traffic from servers will follow the path of the VLAN. For example, if an internal server, facing the port is set to VLAN 4, that traffic will be transmitted on the uplink port which has also set to VLAN 4.

    By default, all external ports are placed in a single whole LAG. However, you can change the configuration to support several shifts of uplink. Page 159 of guys configuration takes you step by step on setting up several shifts of uplink.

    The aggregator automatically configures to match the FCoE parameters used in the switches to which it connects through its uplink ports. FIP snooping is automatically configured on an aggregator. Automatically configured port channel (LAG 128) works CWF port mode. See page 86 for more information and examples of config.

    For redundancy, you could stack the units together. 241 page details the process of stacking.

    Page 54 of 102 of the Guide blade IO has one other diagram that details more internal server port mapping for each blade.
