I recently upgrade my home switch from a 16 ports netgear GS116E with a Brocade 6450 24 ports.
Everything was directly plugged in the switch. I have a simple architecture : a network 192.168.1.x used by default between the ISP modem (Freebox server) and the ISP IPTV box (Freebox player)...
If you want something cheap and reliable, I advise HEJNE from IKEA ( HEJNE 1 section, pin, 78x50x171 cm - IKEA ). With additional parts, you can have almost every kind of setup. Between 2 height, 2U fits perfectly.
To suits your need of 12U you just have to cut the 4 main feets (I did it to fit...
I was not able to boot into anyting (probably a configuation from the previous owner), still I use the BOOT recovery mechanism from Supermicro.
Now I am stuck again : the boot process is stoped at code 0x91 (DXE Intel Reference Code Execution). Supermicro advise a procedure (FAQ Entry...
I got a X10SRL-F on eBay but upon testing it, the BIOS is password protected.
I ask the seller but he doesn't have it. I try a couple of default one, but nothing so far.
Is there a way to circumvent that or is sending it back the only solution ?
I am looking for a 10gb network card with a SFP+ interface. I already have an Asus one with Aquantia chip, but I have some drop of connection regularly so I want to move on something more "server", like Chelsio or Intel.
It needs to be 2U compatible, and ideally not too power hungry...
I was the one who bought you the 2 boards (and you disclose every problems they had). I assume it was an overheating problems so I manage to have a new heatskink for the CPU (+ noctua 60mm fan) and a noctua 40mm fan on the ethernet chipset. Both fan runs at max speed but are inaudible in rack...
thanks ! Looking at the pinout on the RJ45, mine wasn't the same ( DSD TECH Câble SH-RJ45P USB vers Console avec Puce PL2303RA pour commutateurs de routeurs Cisco 1.8M / 5.9FT: Amazon.fr: High-tech ), so that might explain why I did not see any prompt !
I have the same settings as the one in the HowTo (9600 8N1).
I got the cable from Amazon by searching "Brocade serial cable". The model I got is referenced Prolific PL2303GT under Windows devices. It is this one : PL2303GT USB to RS232 Serial Bridge Controller (Built in RS232 XCVR) | Prolific...
I just got a 6450-24p to replace an old netgear. I buy a RJ45-USB serial cable (Prolific PL2303GT) and try to apply Fohdeesha HowTo, but I was not able to get a prompt using Putty. The serial cable is mapped on COM1 and soon after I the power plug in the swith, I hit "b", but nothing happen...
thanks for your answer !
I already own a 4 ports 10gb SFP from Mikrotik. I am happy with it but I need more ports and ideally on one applicance rather than many.
I found some interested thread about Brocade switch. Looks very interesting !
I own a Netgear GS116v2 (16 ports 1gb). All ports are used and I frequently see interface going from 1000mb to 100mb. Usually, I just unplug/plug the RJ45 jack and it gets back to 1000mb but I suspect this switch is a little bit under performing for my setup.
I am looking for a switch...
