Install an InfiniBand Cable

  1. Identify the prerequisite and subsequent service tasks you must perform in conjunction with this procedure.

    See Servicing InfiniBand Cables.

  2. Determine your next steps:
    • If you are cabling an entire switch after a replacement procedure, locate the cable for connector 17B and go to Step 5.
    • If you are installing a replacement cable to the switch, start the procedure at Step 3.
  3. Inspect the replacement InfiniBand cable.

    See Inspecting the InfiniBand Cables.

  4. Bring the replacement cable to the switch.
  5. Feed the cable through the cable management hardware.
  6. Orient the cable connector to the QSFP receptacle squarely and horizontally.

    Ensure that the L groove is up for the top row of receptacles, or that the L groove is down for the bottom row of receptacles.


    Illustration shows the InfiniBand cable being installed.

    Note - On some QSFP cable connectors, there is a retraction strap. Both the retraction strap and L groove indicate the reference surface for the connector. When installing QSFP cables in the top row of receptacles (0A, 1A, 2A, and so on), ensure that the L groove and retraction strap are up. When installing QSFP cables in the bottom row of receptacles (0B, 1B, 2B, and so on) ensure that the L groove and retraction strap are down. See Identify the InfiniBand Cable.


  7. Slowly move the connector in.

    As you slide the connector in, the shell should be in the center of the QSFP receptacle.


    Illustration shows the InfiniBand cable with proper alignment.
    • If the connector stops or binds after about 1/4 in. (5 mm) travel, back out and repeat from Step 6.

    • If the connector stops or binds with about 1/8 in. (2 mm) still to go, back out and repeat Step 7.

  8. Continue to push the connector in until you feel a detent.
  9. Secure the cable into the cable management hardware.

    Close hook-and-loop fasteners at bundles and securing hard points.

  10. If you are installing all cables as part of a switch replacement procedure, repeat from Step 5 for all cables, working your way from right to left.
  11. Replace the cover for the cable management bracket and tighten the thumbscrews.
    Illustration shows the cable management bracket cover being installed.
