    just follow this guide to update its firmware ICX7250 - Fohdeesha Docs

    substitute the filenames with the 7450 image names which you can download for free from ruckus. to license it type "license install perpetual 1" and hit tab a bunch, it'll show you all the arguments you can supply to add all the licenses

    I marked mine with a note on it not to sell (never intend to) once Fohdeesha helped me out. I don't want to put him in the fire for helping us out. Suggest others do the same...

    I don't buy it because if he forgot about the licenses he would not have mentioned the switch has licenses for the 4 10G modules. The other telltale sign is there is an invalid license which the guy never bothered to remove, leading me to think it originally had the premium sw license only.

    He removed his listing from homelabsales 4 hours ago.

    For a single 10GbE link I would just use the Mellanox MAM1Q00A-QSA QSFP-to-SFP+ adapter. It's like $20 shipped on ebay.

    Fantastic thread BTW. Any leads on current deals for ICX7150-C12P? As noted in first post, these come up less frequently but they seem to be 400+ these days.

    There are two PIA040H12L's in my 6450s'. They sound obviously worn and should be replaced.
    Will any fan work that are within the size and specifications? (obv may have to move pins)
    Is the switch RPM sensitive, and in that case how sensitive?
    Probably has been answered already but I didn't find exactly what I needed.

    It's been answered extensively. Search for more details but if it fits, it'll work in the 6450.
