Well with the 7xxx series you can now add them to the unleased controller and I’m hoping the add more features down the line

Yeah, but they deprecated several APs recently with that exact version that allows you to add them to the Unleashed controller.

I was like... "Come on, seriously? Not a single version overlap so we can use our Unleashed T310s and R310s with Unleashed AND the ICX7150s?!?!" Nope. And, they just recommended the 9x T310s and R310s for our campus just 60 days BEFORE that version dropped. Couldn't return any of it, nor would they exchange them.

This is why I am using Ansible for all of my switches and APs, and some routers (Unify/EdgeMax). Doesn't matter if it's Cisco APs with Unify APs, with Ruckus 7150s and 7750s - I'm using the same repo to configure all the hodge-podge devices using the same base configurations (e.g. no stacking required).

I nevet ansible to work with my 7150
Think it’s was because I used the just released .90 version on my switch

but yes the AP thing sucks “had” to upgrade my R310 to R720 so I could use it :)

I'm a big ansible user / fan, I would love it if you had a github repo to share to configure / update the brocade icx-6450 / icx-7750.

To the hard core brocade users, I don't know if this is possible or not, I have a CISCO VPN device that does 802.1X authentication and it would be AMAZING if I could pass that cisco port into the icx-6450 on to a VLAN and pass it through to my desktop machine on the other end of the house. Reading the documentation for the icx-6450 it supports
EAP pass-through support
I found this reference, but I don't think this is what I need for passthrough.

Flexible Authentication.

Has anyone ever tried any of this witchcraft?

Thanks,
Matt

Is there any interest ITT in ICX 6450, ICX 6610, ICX 6650 and ICX 7750 switches before they'll head to, god forbid, eBay? A acquaintance of mine is looking to unload a boatload of them.

He's got:
  • 20 ICX 6450-24's
  • 15 ICX 6450-24P's
  • 105 ICX 6450-48's
  • 16 ICX6450-48P's
  • 2 ICX6610-24F-E's
  • 19 ICX 6610-24F-E's
  • A lone ICX6610-24F-PE
  • 3 ICX 6650-32E-ADV's
  • And 6 ICX 7750-48F's

What's the ask for a 7750-48F, does it have all fans and both power supplies, and where's it shipping from?

Darn, no shipping to US. Picture shows all 4 fans and both PSUs and a list price of about a third of what is being asked on eBay.

I am finally getting around to a lot of changes/upgrades to the guide site, including eventually the stuff I promised I would add way back on the page 200 milestone. Just organizing stuff for now, but so far the changes:

- change color (life changing)
- fixed some fastiron linux root password info
- fixed some license dumping info (flash dump command size)
- added a singular main header with info like docu version and github links - I now have one singular file to update when pushing changes, instead of the old manual footer text I was putting in every single page
- on the new header I've added a paypal donate link - I told myself I would never solicit donations, however I occasionally get emails from people asking how to donate. I figure adding a button will kill these emails :)

The new header disappears as soon as you start scrolling, so hopefully it's not too intrusive


much more to come, including firmware updates including a (relatively) easy method to get the 7 series up to the newer UFI 8092+ images regardless of starting firmware version

You could always ask him about shipping, even though to the US it'll be retardedly expensive.
I spoke to him, shipping should be possible, he's looking into it.

EDIT: You're looking at €197,50 shipped with FedEx Economy.

Hi,
I managed to short out the 12V on the rear right fan module, and now the connector appears to be dead (doesn't recognize a fan module when inserted). The rear left fan module still works fine.

Does anyone by chance know if there is any resettable fuses for this, or anything that can be reset? Don't want to take too much risk on this, as the left module still works, and the switch works fine otherwise.

Any obvious burnt components inside?

Sorry for busting in, is there actually some kind of up-to-date readme for us, non-brocade plebs that want to do some switching on brocades? Like, I genuinely have no idea what to look for and how, the initial post is out-of-date, there's some licensing involved too, I just dont know. Going through 277 pages of this thread is quite an effort. Maybe you can just link me to the most relevant posts here...
I only know mikrotik router/swos.
Thank you

initial post and the linked documents are not out of date for licensing or initial setup. They still work well. look up about 4 post to see that the OP is still hard at work and is currently refreshing those documents, which will mainly effect the ICX 7*** series switches to use the latest firmware after a few bigger changes made by Brocade.
