Yes during the bootloader stage some of the port lights are lit; in my 6450, at boot all the SFP link light are lit orange, and after the system boots there's a flash of all port lights, then all of them turns off until the configuration is applied and the links come up.Finally got the 7250. I'm not sure if I got a broken one or not.
Is it normal for three of the ports on one side of the switch to be lit up solid green full time? From boot to when the fans cool down?
No matter what I've tried, I've been unable to get anything out of the serial port. I tried chopping a few cables per some hacks I saw. Are there are current sources for confirmed working mini-USB-serial cables? I've got one of https://www.amazon.com/CompuLab-Mini-serial-DB-9-adapter-cable/dp/B00GO27WWW coming tomorrow, but I might also try the internal USB header to keystone jack hack I saw posted elsewhere.
almost forgot to mention @anlin @Skud and anyone else who bought a 7250 - the 7250 (and most of the icx7xxx series) uses an annoying mini usb connector for the serial port, and it's still rs232 serial too so you can't plug it into a usb port.
You will need one of these - Brocade Console Cable Mini-USB (Male) to RJ45 (Male) 8ft Serial PN 50-1000122-01 | eBay
the ICX7150-C12P has a regular RJ45 serial port
If you really want to hack something up (I am not responsible if you fry the serial port):
That's what has me a bit concerned. Even after it finishes booting and quiets down, the lights stay on:Yes during the bootloader stage some of the port lights are lit; in my 6450, at boot all the SFP link light are lit orange, and after the system boots there's a flash of all port lights, then all of them turns off until the configuration is applied and the links come up.
TL;DR: it's normal.
As of the serial port, it's a serial console over mini-USB cables, so you've to use a cable with a serial converter; in this thread there're some posts about it, I'll do a search and quote them.
EDIT: Found them!
Thanks for confirming. Contacting my eBay seller now. Something definitely isn't right as I have an identical attempt at a serial cable as @BeTeP outlined and it doesn't work.Daaang! No, that's not normal at all! Do you have the PoE version? In case, the right light should be PoE on, so definitely there's something wrong in it.
The serial port should be 9600 baud, 8N1.
If I were you I'd ask for a replacement, as it is clear that it has a defective switch chip inside, probably caused by a storm or something similar...
Sorry, I misunderstood your original post... I thought you were referring to the light of the SFP+ cages, as in my 6450 those (placed on the chassis, near the stack ID light) do come up at the bootloader stage, but at the system stage they are off...
It also supports full dynamic IPv6 via like OSPFv3 right? That's the big reason I picked one up, though as mentioned above, the first one is a dud.added to the OP as it wasn't clear before, the ICX7250 DOES support all the layer 3 stuff the icx6450 does, but ADDS full tunnel support (ipv6 in ipv4 and GRE) as well as VRFs. So all the same advanced L3 features as the 6610 minus BGP
yep, looks like even the icx7150 supports it: https://i.imgur.com/fc1IJfO.pngIt also supports full dynamic IPv6 via like OSPFv3 right? That's the big reason I picked one up, though as mentioned above, the first one is a dud.
Yep you'll need a standard Cisco-like RJ-45 serial console cable, and a USB-to-RS232 converter, or you can buy some cables that bundles a Prolific chip directly inside the USB-A connector, leading to an RJ-45 "serial" plug.Meanwhile, a quick question on the console cable. The protocol looks a standard RS-232, so any serial to USB for console should work, right?

Yep. It had a burnt out board. Seller had me run 'no inline power' and 'inline power', and the "has NOT changed." didn't pop up. What it did cause was the USB->Ethernet that I had plugged into my NUC for initial config to literally start smoking and start on fire.@kroy looks like it has a burnt POE board, to be sure update to the latest software and poe firmware. If I remember right, on the codetrains running on the icx7xxx series POE is enabled by default on all ports so you don't even need to run "inline power" underneath a port, which might explain the "Inline power configuration on port 1/1/2 has NOT changed." message
