Hey guys first time posting,
Got an ICX6450, following Fohdeesha guide to get it started but not working, a bit of a noob
o my network setup is like this:
- ISP Fiber thing with ethernet (1gbs) to netgate box
- 10gb SFP+ DAC Cable going to switch
Switch Brocade ICX6450
- DAC from netgate box (1/2/1)
- DAC to NAS (1/2/2)
- DAC to Optiplex Server (1/2/3)
- DAC to PC (1/2/4)
(I also have an unmanaged switch I have AP and PC hookedup to for internet until i can get this to work that is hooked up to regular lan port on netgate)
So I am now trying to setup to ICX6450 using this guide. I am connected fine to the serial port via an old Surface pro 3 (main pc a little far for cable)
ICX6450 - Fohdeesha Docs
I downloaded the files in the overview and put the tftp server on my main pc. Though not sure what I should set the server interface to? (the DAC?)
Anyway. I run into a problem on the first step, the factory set-default command isn't working for me it says unknown command.
I attempted to continue in the guide anyway
I set the IP to the IP i already setup for it in pfsense and the netmask.
Then set the serverip to the IP for my pc on pfsense and on the tftpd server program (192.168.1.101)
but i cant ping it or then load from it because it says its missing a gateway?
So yea im a little lost....
Im just getting started this is my eventual network I want. (I have a shed a lot of the equipment is going in which ill run fiber to which is why two 10gb switchs to netgate box, one in shed one inside, but for now just doing netgatebox to switch, pc, nas,server)
It looks like your PC is connected to the network on wireless, which as you listed above goes into an AP and then into an unmanged switch that goes into your Netgate which is connected to your ICX6450 with a DAC . Are you able to try with the PC plugged directly into the switch with an Ethernet cable? Eliminate all the middle men just in case there are problems in between somewhere.Well, I fixed it but error was on my side... not pluged into management port. But firmware is updated!
However now I am running into a new issue.
I got to the part in the tutorial to copy over the license. Switched to regular ethernet port, changed serial, now I am copying the license.
However it keeps erroring out as shown on tftpd64

It's possible, although if you try to use VLAN tags that may not work. If all of your traffic is untagged then yes, it would operate as a plain layer 2 switch.Hello, really new to the server space. If I were to get a CX6450-24P and it is fully reset. Would it function as an unmanaged switch?
Correct me if I'm wrong here, but if you create a VE it should only be exposed on the vlans you put it in right? If you run the command:You can use access-lists (ACLs) to restrict the ability to talk to the management IP address over SSH/HTTP/HTTPS/etc. if you wish. This is the same technique you'd use to restrict access across any other routed paths (between hosts, for example).
If you prefer to use the management port you certainly can, although you'll have to provide a way to connect to it If you are going to route traffic between your VLANs you'll still need addresses on the VEs, though, so you'll have to use access-lists if you want to block access to the management interfaces through those addresses. I don't think there is any way to tell the device to *not* listen on the VE addresses for management traffic.

Hi Fohdeeshalongshot, but have you tried rebooting the switch?
