About This Guide
This guide provides an overview, installation and troubleshooting instructions, and
specifications for the Enterasys Matrix DFE-Platinum 7G4202-60 and
7G4282-41 modules.
For information about the CLI (Command Line Interface) set of commands used to
configure and manage the DFE-Platinum modules, refer to the Enterasys Matrix
DFE-Platinum Series Configuration Guide.
Who Should Use This Guide
This guide is intended for a network administrator responsible for installing and
setting up the DFE-Platinum modules.
Note: In this guide, the following terms are used:
DFE refers to Distributed Forwarding Engine series of modules.
DFE-Platinum module or module refers to the 7G4282-41 and 7G4202-60. If the
information applies to only one of the modules, the module is referred to by its model
number (such as 7G4282-41).
Network expansion module (NEM) refers to an optional uplink card installed on the
main logic board and accessible through the option slot of the 7G4282-41.
Important Notice
Depending on the firmware version used in the DFE-Platinum module, some features
described in this document may not be supported. Refer to the Release Notes shipped
with the DFE-Platinum module to determine which features are supported.
Electrical Hazard: Only qualified personnel should perform installation
procedures.
Riesgo Electrico: Solamente personal calificado debe realizar procedimientos
de instalacion.
Elektrischer Gefahrenhinweis: Installationen sollten nur durch ausgebildetes

information about 100BASE-TX networks and cabling.
Note: The fixed ports of the module support Category 5 UTP cabling with an impedance
between 85 and 111 ohms for 100 Mbps operation. The module is capable of operating at
10, 100, or 1000 Mbps and can automatically sense the port speed of the other device and
adjust its speed accordingly.

Caution: Failure to observe static safety precautions could cause damage to the
DFE-Platinum module. Follow static safety handling rules and wear the antistatic wrist
strap.
Do not cut the non-conductive bag to remove the module. Sharp objects contacting the
board or components can cause damage.
Precaucin: Si no toma las medidas de seguridad necesarias para evitar descargas de

troubleshootingdetails.
Caution: To prevent damaging the backplane connectors in the following step, take care
that the module slides in straight and properly engages the backplane connectors.
Ensure that the top lever lines up with the desired slot number located on the front panel of
the chassis. Refer to Figure 3-3.
Precaucin: Para evitar que se daen los conectores del panel posterior en el siguiente
paso, intente deslizar el mdulo en forma recta y verifique que se enganche
correctamente en los conectores de panel posterior.
Asegrese de que la palanca superior est alineada con respecto al nmero de ranura
correspondiente ubicado en el panel frontal del chasis. Consulte en Figure 3-3.
Caution: Due to the amount of force needed to properly seat the module connectors into
the backplane connectors, it is best to apply force to the end of the levers to insert (or
eject) the module. Otherwise, damage could result to the module and chassis.
Precaucin: Para colocar los conectores del mdulo en los conectores del panel
posterior correctamente es necesario hacer bastante fuerza, por ello, para insertar o quitar
el mdulo, se recomienda concentrar la fuerza en el extremo de las palancas. Si no lo
hace, podra daar el mdulo y el chasis.
Caution: In step 4, do not force the locking levers to the point that they touch the face of
the front panel. Forcing the locking levers to this point could damage the module and
chassis.
Precaucin: En el paso 4, tenga cuidado de no llevar las palancas de cierre a un punto
en donde estn en contacto con el panel frontal. Si lo hace, podra daar el mdulo y/o el
chasis.

there are rules concerning network cables and port configurations that must be followed
for Link Aggregation to operate properly. Before connecting the cables, refer to the
Enterasys Matrix DFE-Platinum Series Configuration Guide for the configuration
information. For details on how to obtain manuals, refer to the Related Documents in
About This Guide.
Note: All RJ45 front panel ports on the 7G4202-60and7G4282-41 support Category 5
Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cabling with an impedance between 85 and 111 ohms.

The terms flashing, blinking, and solid used in Table 4-2 indicate the following:
Flashing indicates an LED is flashing randomly.
Blinking indicates an LED is flashing at a steady rate (approximately 50% on, 50%

Solid indicates a steady LED light. No pulsing.
Alternating indicates an LED is flashing in a steady rate other than 50% on, 50%
off.

Table 4-3 Troubleshooting Checklist
Problem Possible Cause Recommended Action
All LEDs are OFF. Loss of power. Ensure that the module was installed properly
according to the installation instructions in
Chapter 3, and that the host chassis is providing
power.
No Local
Management
Password screen.
Incorrect terminal setup. Refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE-Platinum
Series Configuration Guide for proper setup
procedures.
Improper console cable
pinouts.
Refer to Appendix A for proper COM port pinouts.
Corrupt firmware image,
or hardware fault.
If possible, attempt to download the image to the
module again. Refer to the section, Setting the
Mode Switches, on page B-1 for instructions to
clear NVRAM.
Cannot navigate
beyond Password
screen.
Improper username/
password combination
entered.
If the username/password combination has been
forgotten, refer to the section, Setting the Mode
Switches, on page B-1 for instructions on how to
set the mode switch to reset the username/
password combination to the default values.
Cannot contact the
module through
in-band
management.
IP address not
assigned.
Refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE-Platinum
Series Configuration Guide for the IP address
assignment procedure.
Port is disabled. Enable port. Refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE-
Platinum Series Configuration Guide for
instructions to enable/disable ports.
Host Port policy and/or
management VLAN is
incorrectly configured,
or not configured.
Verify that a management VLAN exists and that it
is associated with the Host Port.
Refer to the Enterasys Matrix DFE-Platinum
Series Configuration Guide for information about
Host Port and management VLAN configuration.
No link to device. Verify that all network connections between the
network management station and the module are
valid and operating.
