Exactly... at best it would identify the medium as a twinax direct connect, it will show it's serial number, but it won't measure power as there's nothing that can do it inside the cable...Thank you. I have discovered there are Brocade Twinax cables.
So would you statement of "Twinax cables won't show statistics about transmission and receiving power..." also apply even to Brocade branded Twinax cables ?
Given what you wrote, my guess would be nope - no Twinax regardless of mfg will show power transmission specs.
I have (finally!) turned on the 2x ICX 6610 that I bought 3 month ago.
They have the following licenses:
Does it means that they have already all unlocked?
Also, I'm trying to configure the 2x 40G port for the stack, in order to use the other breackout ports to 10G connections, but I'm getting this error:
I have already removed the stack trunk:
stack unit 1
no stack-trunk 1/2/1 to 1/2/2
no stack-trunk 1/2/6 to 1/2/7
nevermind, the @fohdeesha stacking guide is OP, it did the trick
Please read the thread 'till the end... you've just missed the latest news about the licensing for the community.
Well... being patient and snap the deals when they come up it's always a good strategy, unless you specifically need the switch right now.Guess I'm going to have to be extra patient and wait a few months for a good deal to pop up. I just hope the main wave of old stock isn't coming to a close. Prices have definitely gone up since the start of this thread!
Oof, just went back and saw the post on page 100. I didn't miss it, just read it out of order apparently as I was probably bouncing around the thread last night before I decided to go in order today. Is this what you were referring to or something else? Apologies if I'm missing something obvious.Please read the thread 'till the end... you've just missed the latest news about the licensing for the community.
Toronto but curious; PM'ed.@AngryLatinChanting Where in Canada? AB here; local would be nice.
If you're interested, I'm planning on selling a 6610-24P, two Mellanox CX353A 40Gbe cards and two Mellanox FDR 40Gbe cables, all working together under ESXi 6.7. There's also a 6450-24 I no longer use.
I'm now set up with the servers on 10G DAC into a 7250-24, 10G fiber over to a 6450-48P supporting the 1G environment.
FYI & fair warning: 40G works but requires a lot of tuning to get the speeds up (as in: max out the performance/ power draw of all attached devices. Last winter it kept the garage warm but it's too much in the summer).
Yep, I was referring to that post @fohdeesha has decided to continue giving licences to the forum members (thank you!), so you're not screwed upOof, just went back and saw the post on page 100.

Preface: I don't own that model, so take this with a grain of salt...Sorry if this has already been asked, but is it possible to reverse the physical mounting (and therefore airflow direction) of the fans in the ICX6610 to convert an -I to an -E variant and vice versa?
