On Orange

If this LED is on orange for a prolonged time, the switch has On Orange encountered a fatal hardware failure, or has failed its self-test

Off

The unit is not receiving power.

UID (Unit Identification)

The Unit Identification LED is used to help you to UID (Unit Identification) The default is 30 minutes.a rack or collection of products.

On or Slow Flash

The “chassis locate” command allows you to blink or turn on the LED for a specified number of minutes (1-1440). The default is 30 minutes.

Off

LED will turn off after the timeout period has expired.

Back Module Status

Status of modular components installed in the back of the unit.

On Green

Normal operation: All modular components installed in the back of the unit are functioning correctly.

Slow Flash Orange

One of the modules inserted from the back of the chassis of stacking module) has failed self test or is experiencing a fault condition. Flashes simultaneously with the Global Status LED flashing orange.

Aux Port Activity

Indicates data transfer on Solid Green the Aux Port which is used for processing a downloading switch software code.

Solid Green

USB installed and successfully initialized, and mounted, but no data transfer.

Green Flicker

Data transfer is in progress. Do not remove installed device until data transfer is complete

Slow Flash Orange

The USB device that is installed is unsupported or faulted.

Off

No USB installed.

Flex Port Module Status

Status of Flex Port module.

On Green

Flex Port module operating correctly.

Slow Flash Orange

Flex Port module has experienced a fault.The Global Status LED should be flashing synchronously.

Off

No power.

No Present

No Module

Speed Mode Selected

Indicates when the Port LEDs are showing port speed information.

On

Speed Mode is selected. Port LEDs indicate port speed.

Off

Speed mode not selected.

Power over Ethernet (PoE)Mode Selected

Indicates when the Port LEDs are showing PoE status information.

On Green

PoE Mode is selected. Port LEDs show PoE information.

On Orange

PoE Mode is selected and aport also has a PoE error. The Global Status LED and the LED corresponding to the port with the error will be flashing orange.The rest of the Port LEDs will display normal PoE status.

Slow Flash Orange

PoE Mode has NOT been selected and a port has a PoE error. LED will be flashing orange simultaneously with the Global Status LED and the LED corresponding to the port with the error. The rest of the Port LEDs will display normal PoE status.

Save Power Mode Selected

This mode is indicated by ALL the switch indicator LEDs being off, except for the Global Status LED. This displaySave Power Mode Selected occurs only if the switch has been configured with the save power led command.

This is the DEFAULT. There is no dedicated mode LED indicating this mode.

The Mode LED function the last press of the LED Mode button.

Speed

Shows port speed configuration.

PoE

Shows PoE information.

User

Shows User selectable User behavior.

Activity/Link Mode Selected

Port LEDs are displaying Link status and network activity information simultaneously.

Activity/Link Mode is the default mode and is in effect the unless another LED mode has been selected.

Half-Bright Green

The port is enabled and receiving a Link indication from the connected device.

Activity Flicker Green

The percentage of time that the LED is full-bright is roughly proportional to the percentage of full bandwidth utilization of the port.

Half-Bright Green port Link indication remains on as Activity flickers from half-bright to full-bright.

Slow Flash Orange

The corresponding port has failed its self-test. Flashes simultaneously with the Global Status LED flashing orange.

Port LEDs are displaying PoE information.

On Green

The port is providing PoE power.

On Orange

PoE is disabled on the port.

Fast Flash Orange

The port is denied power or is detecting an external PD fault.

Slow Flash Orange
