Setting up the Brocade 7800 Extension Switch as a standalone unit

The Brocade 7800 can be configured as a standalone unit, which means that it resides outside of a rack. Perform the following steps to configure the Brocade 7800 as a standalone unit.

  1. Unpack the Brocade 7800 and verify that all ordered items are present.
  2. Clean the four corner depressions on the bottom of the Brocade 7800 and place a rubber foot in each one. This helps prevent the Brocade 7800 from accidentally sliding off the supporting surface.
  3. Place the Brocade 7800 on a stable, flat surface.
