FWS Combo Ports

FWS648 comes with combo ports. When I utilize a combo port with an SPF, which port do I loose on the switch. IE use combo port 1 lose port 48 or port 1 on the switch? I can't find documentation anywhere. I have an SPF module that will also not come up, what commands to I use to access those ports and troubleshoot the spf?

Re: FWS Combo Ports

Hi Charles3,

Short answer is 1 though 4 are the combo ports.

See below taken from the 'Brocade FastIron WS

Hardware Installation Guide'

FWS624 and FWS648 devices provide the following interfaces:

  • 10/100 Mbpsports with RJ-45 copper connectors (Ports 5~24 or Ports 5~48)
  • 10/100/1000 RJ-45 or 100/1000 SFP (1-GE) combo ports (Ports 1~4)

FWS624G and FWS648G devices provide the following interfaces:

  • 10/100/1000 Mbps ports with RJ-45 copper connectors (Ports 5~24 or Ports 5~48)
  • 10/100/1000 RJ-45 or 100/1000 SFP (1-GE) combo ports (Ports 1~4)

Thanks
