that's expected, "show media" doesn't pull any info about the link, it just tries to read the vendor EEPROM of the optic for info like model and serial number, and the EEPROM layout of the 10gbase-t transceiver probably confuses it
I think the older revisions of S+RJ10 will appear this way in all ICX switches.I finally put my ICX 6610-48 to "production" with four Mikrotik 10G RJ45 transceivers. When connected to Intel X550 link goes up, seems to work - the port shows as 1/3/1 - Up - Forward Full 10G When I type show media in the console of the switch, it does show the ports 1/3/1 to as EMPTY. Is it expected to do it this way, or do I have to set something?
what seemed to work for me was to keep the b key pressed - don’t tap it. Just press it as soon as you plug it the power cord (within a split second) and keep it pressed. That worked on a ICX-6610.Help with setting up a new Brocade 7250-48p which is factory new in the box.
Using official Brocade supplied cable with the micro-usb plugged into switch; and Serial end attached to very old Win7 Thinkpad's serial port. Putty is running, smash the 'b' key every second, plug in power cord; and per fohdeesha's instructions am expecting to see "ICX7250-Boot" but it boots into the OS. (Note: per fohdeesha instructions, I have a CAT6 plugged into Switch Port 20 with other end going into Asus-Merlin router). Putty connection established via Serial connection.
I do believe this switch is new, old stock and never used before.
I tried 3 times; (smashing the b key within Putty) but each time it boots to OS and I never see the "ICX7250-Boot" prompt.
Question: should tftpd be running doing this -or- does one launch tftpd after seeing the "ICX7250-Boot" prompt?
Any thoughts to what I am doing wrong? (note: network noob) & thanks for reading
Here is screen grab showing "show version" commandOnce it fully boots can you type stuff and have it show up? (Like try running "show version")
white holding down the "b" key steady, did you have tftpd running ?
Most odd : using new-in-box official Brocade microUSB-to-Serial cable connected to old Thinkpad's serial port; pressing and/or holding the 'b' key failed 5 or 6 times. Even though from what you saw in 'show version' the cable is working fine; and I could type commands.it doesn't matter if you have tftpd running - the good news is since you can send the switch commands after it boots, your switch, serial cable etc are fine, so you're probably just not getting the timing right. as others have said try holding down the b key in putty, then plugging in power to the switch. It should drop into the boot menu eventually
very odd problem, serial cable in Thinkpad's serial port pounding/holding the 'b' key failed; switching to old SuperMicro and using its serial port 'b' key press-and-hold worked instantly.You have to run tftpd on a different host - yes I did have it running on another vm I had running within my network.
No, you can't use 188.8.131.52 because it's in a reserved IP range (192.0.0.0/24), and most notably, it's outside of your local network (as you said, if you're using 192.168.1.0/24, the valid addresses are in the range 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254). The idea behind the use of a non-DHCP allocable address is to avoid duplicate IP on the network: if you choose an address in the pool, the DHCP server cannot know if something else has picked it before, and it could lease it out to a client.I am confused by your statement of out of your DHCP server range. I'm sadly still a network noob and only using 192.168.1.0/24; but looking at my router I have confirmed 192.168.1.20 is not used; so can I use that IP in the above use case or must I use something like 184.108.40.206 ?
Thank you - so if I login to my router and confirm that 192.168.1.20 is NOT used by anything on the LAN, that is an acceptable IP to use in my above use caseNo, you can't use 220.127.116.11 because it's in a reserved IP range (192.0.0.0/24), and most notably, it's outside of your local network (as you said, if you're using 192.168.1.0/24, the valid addresses are in the range 192.168.1.1-192.168.1.254).

Most of the times, you can see and/or edit the DHCP pool on you router config pages.
You'll have to verify that it is not used at the moment (ie. no DHCP lease active), and it is outside of the DHCP poolThank you - so if I login to my router and confirm that 192.168.1.20 is NOT used by anything on the LAN, that is an acceptable IP to use in my above use case
First thank you for the guidesWhat temp are you looking at? The fan ramps are based on the "Fan controlled temperature:" you see in show chassis output
For instance on one of my stacks:
as you can see, it's about 13 degrees from ramping upCode:
Fan controlled temperature: 71.5 deg-C Fan speed switching temperature thresholds: Speed 1: NM<----->84 deg-C Speed 2: 79<-----> 87 deg-C (shutdown)
