Its a tiny board attached to a standard usb2.0 header. You do have some other options.Anybody opened 7050QX-32 chassis before. I am considering upgrading the flash storage.
In Aboot mode, lspci -v show me the existing flash storage is a STEC USB device. So curious anybody have a picture of what's inside in the switch? Is that flash storage upgradable? In addition, according to spec, 100GB SSD is optional. Can buy a SSD from market and plug into the switch?
Cool! Thank you so much! Do you think if I could replace it w/ a tiny USB stick? Something like this.
It's a pin header, you would need an adapter to use any USB sticks.Cool! Thank you so much! Do you think if I could replace it w/ a tiny USB stick? Something like this.
I google the similar USB DOM and found there are two types. Do you know which type Arista uses?It's a pin header, you would need an adapter to use any USB sticks.
I do not know. These pictures were taken a few months ago. The switch is currently in operation and fairly buried under other gear. Sorry.I google the similar USB DOM and found there are two types. Do you know which type Arista uses?
Standard, 9pin, 2.54mm
26.6x36.9x9.6mm (Pin Pitch2.54)
Low profile, 9pin, 2.00mm
26.6x36.9x6.6mm (Pin Pitch2.00)
Sure! I just placed an order for a 4GB USB DOM. I will use it to replace the original flash storage. In addition, I have a 256GB SATA DOM. I will also give it try and see if it could fit in.If you do swap it out (and or manage to install the SSD) do post back, i'm very interested in that!
I have a working setup with S2D. Are you looking for something in particular?Picked up a whole bunch of these the other day. I got 4.20.2F operational and in testing right now:
Hardware version: 02.11
Serial number: XXXXX
System MAC address: XXXXX
Software image version: 4.20.2F
Internal build version: 4.20.2F-7151045.4202F
Internal build ID: 774e0298-8f44-4c84-b62e-b7c5bce6e524
Uptime: 1 week, 1 day, 9 hours and 44 minutes
Total memory: 3956536 kB
Free memory: 2662344 kB
BTW, nice switches. Planning to use these in an S2D build with some dual port Connectx-4's. Anyone tried these in that type of config yet?
