    Maybe a stupid question, but you did generate the required certificate before enabling ssh, right? The service indeed does not start on this brands switches without a generated or uploaded certificate. Have been bumping on this before...

    This is the answer but it is far from intuitive in terms of how to get it to work. For example, the fix here is to click the generate button which is absent from the ES-16-XG firmware.

    Is it absent in the updated firmware, or just ship firmware?

    This screenshot is from the latest firmware: 12 sfp+ + 4 10gbe rj45 - Ubiquiti Edgeswitch 16xg

    When I get back from VMworld I will poke around a bit more and maybe make a video.

    Both my ES-16-XG and ES-48-LITE just got delivered finally. We'll see if I have time to unbox tonight.

    Better the switch than you. Once outside the population centers, it gets "deliverancy" pretty darn quick there

    Would be interested in knowing the build quality of your ES-16-XG.

    The Ubiquiti stuff I've worked with has all been "Vyatta-ish" in its configuration. Since Vyatta went closed-source, there are likely to be some differences when compared to current Vyatta.

    And you need the CLI because one of Ubiquiti's common issues is failing to hook up (either completely or partially) something in the web interface to fully implement options available in the CLI. As I'm a CLI-only user this doesn't matter much to me.
    I'm perfectly willing to try less-expensive solutions, and if they do what I need, great. Otherwise I say "the heck with it" and go buy something I know will do the job.

    I had one ot the original Netgear 10GbE switches (which could only be managed by Adobe Air). I sold it and bought a Dell 8024 (3x the number of ports, about 4x the price). It runs the same FASTPATH code that people are seeing on the Quanta switches, but all the features are enabled and work as expected. I would have purchased a Cisco 4500X, but I couldn't justify the added cost over the Dell 8024.

    I had a Ubiquiti Edgerouter 8-Pro. It had a lot of promise, but the sofware wasn't quite finished. I actually made a couple of suggestions to product development - to include 10GbE ports, have true redundant power (instead of the power brick stuff inelegantly inside the case, etc.). When it became obvious that neither the software features nor a newer model would be forthcoming in the necessary timeframe, I bought a Cisco ASR1001-X to replace it.

    I realy believe that low-cost devices with hardware acceleration are going to take over huge swaths of the market from the legacy players. But they do need to improve the management software and user interface.

    [And yes, I really do have an ASR1001-X running my home network connection. Of course, since I am my ISP, it isn't as crazy as it sounds at first.]

    Just unboxed my ES-16-XG and the build quality appears to be about as good as I could expect. Certainly nothing like the example @Patrick was dealing with so that is a win. I'm happy that is the case because if it was in poor physical shape I was sending it right back. Now at least I'll be able to continue testing it. Tomorrow I'll throw my Nebula and Cisco DAC cables in and see if they work or not and start playing with the CLI.

    Yup. It was made better by the reject tag our incoming inspection people put on it:
    * Rejected for having adventerprisek9 license instead of ipbase
    * Rejected for having firewall license instead of none
    * Rejected for having ipsec license instrad of none
    * Rejected for having throughput_20g license instead of none
    * Rejected for having 16GB DRAM instead of 8GB

    Oh, the horror! I immediately ordered the "stripper" config they wanted and as soon as it came, I paid what purchasing had paid for the incorrect unit and took it home.

    OK so I got my ES-16-XG booted up and configured with a VLAN to talk to my Dell X1052 switch. The ES-16-XG does not recognize my Nebula DAC cables but does recognize my Cisco DAC cables. This is a real bummer because I have 8 of the Nubula cables for all my servers and only 2 of the Cisco cables to "stack" this switch to the ES-48-LITE (once I get that setup). If I have to get all new cables I may just go with fiber transceivers/patch cables from FS.com this time around. Can anyone confirm which specific transceivers that work with EdgeSwitches?

    File transfers in Windows is never fast. I guess its better with SMB3 and RDMA though.
