The management port is the one above the full size USB port.
What does the physical connection look like for the console cable. Are you certain it is a serial cable and not just a normal mini USB B cable?Hello - first time post. Thanks for putting together this wonderful resource.
I got a new 7250 from ebay - everything looks new but seems box was opened because it was missing a few parts - like the included console cable.
Anyway, hooked everything up and followed the install guide. First off, there is no sign of life from the console port. The seller sent me a. new console cable (mini usb) after i inform him it was missing in the box. Also the install guide says:

So i am quite confused. I assumed connecting the management port to my network doesnt assign it an ip until i set in via the console? I did not connect it to the regular port on the switch - its connected to the port directly above the usb port.
Also not sure how to get the console working. completely dead. I am hoping its something I am doing wrong vs a bad switch or console cable. could use some pointers to get things up and running. Thanks.
well - not sure i can even tell the difference between the two! I assumed the seller had sent me the correct cable. He sent me the console cable and a db9 adapter, which seems to be what comes with the new switch ? What do you mean by what the physical connection looks like? you mean how its connected? I am connected to my laptops ethernet port on one end and the mini usb on the switch.What does the physical connection look like for the console cable.

so you have a cable with RJ45 on one end and Mini USB B on the other? And then you have that RJ45 connected to your laptop and USB on the switch? If so that doesn't seem correct.well - not sure i can even tell the difference between the two! I assumed the seller had sent me the correct cable.

also am I supposed to connect the management port to my network at the same time ? wont that get an ip assigned?
I have an RJ45 /db9 adapter which came with the switch. Not a usb to serial. My laptop does not have a db9 connector. It has usb-c and usb-A, plus the usual hdmi and RJ45. ( Lenovo thinkpad x1 carbon )so you have a cable with RJ45 on one end and Mini USB B on the other? And then you have that RJ45 connected to your laptop and USB on the switch? If so that doesn't seem correct.
You need a serial interface on your laptop to connect to the mini USB B port. You might have to adapt the RJ45 to a DB9. Does your laptop have a DB9 connector or do you have a USB to Serial adapter?
It would help if you posted a picture of everything you have

I can try it out, need to find where the only 2.5G device I have is.@zanechua It seems that the modules with the real Aquantia chipset have special capabilities for allowing the intermediate speeds of NBase-T on switches like the Brocade ICX that do not clock at those intermediate speeds.

Using your HiFiber tranceiver, do you get full 2.xGbps throughput in BOTH directions between a 10Gbe endpoint and a 2.5Gbe endpoint?
I have been testing the 09000 release on my personal 7450s. Like @fohdeesha said, the new web GUI is the most visible change. Did not run into any noticeable bugs but I am planning to return my gear to the 0809x codetrain for now.
Earlier today, I stumbled across this notice regarding 08090m:
2 September 2021: RUCKUS has found a defect # FI-247944 due to which we have removed the software image for 08.0.90m from the Support Portal. For more information, please read TSB-2021-005.
I do not have access to the detailed TSB, but it is unusual for a vendor to completely pull a GA release before the patch is available. I would consider downgrading if you deployed the 'm' firmware.
Seeing the Clarkson video - I can now picture you in some DataCenter NOC screaming for more power while taking a large hammer to "bad" Network gear.the "hw pid-prom" commands that set the correct license ID, if ran on a stack, will only apply to the master switch, there's no way to make them run on the secondary. it sounds like you ran it on the master, then imported the matching licenses on both switches? that would certainly make the second one go invalid as it no longer has a matching LID
I think you'd have to now unstack the second 6450 and wipe it, then follow the license guide on it to get the LID changed and licenses imported. then once its all valid, and your master is too, re-add it to the stack. this is why it's highly recommended to license all your stuff before stacking it
(theoretically, in a stack, you can jump to the console of secondary units by using the "rconsole 2" command, but I've tested this and it won't let you run the "hw pid" commands from that remote console)
Also I suppose instead of unstacking it, you could also just use the other hidden method of changing the serial and LID, from the bootloader. console cable to your secondary 6450, reboot it and stop it in the u-boot bootloader, then run:
eeprom sn 2ax5o2jk68e
it'll reboot and let it boot fully and rejoin the stack like usual. I think you might have to reboot it twice with this method as the first boot after clearing the LID from u-boot has it re-generate one, but not take effect. second reboot has it come up fully changed. then ssh to the stack and import licenses to it, by specifying unit 2:
copy tftp license 192.168.1.8 ICX64xx/1-6450-prem.xml unit 2
copy tftp license 192.168.1.8 ICX64xx/2-6450-ports.xml unit 2
This is a guess but I'm betting it's because that transceiver plugs into a SFP+ port and provides 2.5Gbit/sec connectivity instead of 10Gbit/sec.@cap
Sorry but why did you have to get that specific Aquantia transceiver?
Aren't the Brocade switches not picky at all and actually will run most transceivers?
I bought the HiFiber Transceiver listed in the above article and it worked fine.
