Status Indicators
A.1 Supervisor Module
While the front panel of each switch can house two supervisors, switch operations require only one. Supervisors display switch component status and contain Ethernet management and console ports. Appendix B displays the supervisor location on each switch.
The supervisor provides one serial console port, two Ethernet management ports, two USB ports, and one clock input port. Supervisor activity is reported by LEDs in the lower left corner. Four LEDs located right of these LEDs report status of other switch components. Figure A-1 and Figure A-2 display the Supervisor Modules.

Off
Supervisor is not active.
Green
Supervisor is active and controlling the switch.
Component Activity Status LEDs
LEDs located below the vents and left of the input ports display summary indicators for power supplies, fabric modules, fan modules, and line cards. Table A-2 interprets the states of these indicators. When error conditions are indicated, refer to LEDs on the specified modules to determine the condition’s source.

All powered modules are operating normally.
Red
At least one module has failed.
Fan Modules
Off
Module not inserted.
Amber
At least one fan is missing or has failed.
Green
All modules are operating normally.
Red
There are insufficient functional fans installed in the switch.
A.2 Line Card Module Indicators
Each line card module provides one status LED plus LEDs for each port on the card. The figures in Appendix F indicate the location of the LEDs on each line card. Figure A-3-left displays the status LED and Port LEDs on the left side of the DCS-7300X-64S-LC line card. Figure A-3-right displays the status LED and Port LEDs on the left side of the DCS-7300X-32Q-LC line card.

Yellow
Line card administratively shut down.
Red
Module has failed.
The Line card provides LEDs for each port module socket:
Figure A-3 displays SFP module LEDs. Each LED corresponds to a module.
Figure A-4 displays QSFP module LEDs. A set of four LEDs correspond to each module. When the module is programmed as a 40G port, the first LED in the set reports status. When the module is programmed as four 10G ports, each port is assigned to an LED within the set.
Table A-4 interprets port LED states.

Port is disabled in software.
A.3 Fan and Fabric Status Indicators
Fan and fabric modules are accessed from the rear panel. Fabric modules are inserted into the switch and fan modules are inserted into the fabric modules. Each switch contains four fabric modules; the fan module capacity of fabric modules varies by switch model, as displayed in Table A-5.
Table A-5 Fan Module Capacity

DCS-7304
2 fan modules
8 fan modules
DCS-7308
4 fan modules
16 fan modules
DCS-7316
8 fan modules
32 fan modules
Appendix E displays the rear panel of all switches covered by this guide. Figure A-5 displays a DCS-7304-FM fabric module and the fan modules that it contains.
Fan and fabric module indicators are displayed in Figure A-5. The fan handle indicates the fan direction. All fan modules must have the same color handle.

The fan module installation indicator is green when the fan module is properly installed or red when the module is not fully installed. Table A-6 interprets the states of the Fan and Fabric Status LEDs.

Status
Off
The module is inserted but not receiving power – it may not be properly seated.
Green
The module is operating normally.
Red
The module has failed.
A.4 Power Supply Status Indicators
Power Supply LEDs are on power supply modules. The front panel contains power supply modules for all switches; the DCS-7316 rear panel may also contain power supply modules. Appendix D (front panels) and Appendix E (rear panels) displays the position of these LEDs on each switch.
Figure A-6 display a power supply module.
The power supply handle indicates the power supply fan direction. Verify the airflow direction of all modules satisfy these criteria:
All rear panel modules (fan and power supply modules) have the same color handles.
All front panel modules (power supply modules) have the same color handles.
Rear panel modules and front panel modules have different color handles.
