An HCP system comes with all the CAT-6 cable harnesses needed to connect the ordered number of nodes to the switch. The system comes with one or more red and one or more blue Ethernet cable harness when the Brocade ICX 6430 switches are included. In order to connect the cables to the Brocade ICX 6430 back-end network switches, follow the instructions below.

The red cable harnesses are devoted exclusively to the Brocade ICX 6430 switch in rack position U27. The blue cable harnesses are devoted exclusively to the Brocade ICX 6430 switch in rack position U28.

The diagrams below show the port configuration for the Brocade ICX 6430-24 switches and the Brocade ICX 6430-48 switches. In each type of switch, four ports reserved for functions outside of communicating with the nodes. Do not plug Ethernet cables into these ports during this step. The ports are labeled:

SER
the serial port used to configure the switch.
MGMT
the management port used to configure the switch.
ISL
the inter-switch link used to connect the two back-end switches to one another.
SP
the service port used by Hitachi Vantara service personnel.

The following image shows the Brocade ICX6430-24 port diagram.

Note: The management port on the switch does not correspond to the management port on the node. The management port on the node connects to a normal switch port if you want to configure an [hcp_management] network.
