glad to help - is there any reason you didn't continue following the guide and instead started trying to boot into the included L2 only firmware and use the web UI? <snip>. I would go back and follow the guide from the beginning, I've also added a sub-note right in the guide on how to fix the old bootloader/missing factory command issue: ICX6450 - Fohdeesha Docs
Eventually I caught on and followed the fine documentation. Of course it worked perfectly. Thanks!
I've finished the config/upgrade guide and will proceed with the advanced configuration tomorrow.
One small suggestion, my error text for the factory command was
ICX64XX-boot>> factory set-default Unknown command 'factory' - try 'help'
- From: If you get "factory set-default is not a valid command"
- - - To: If you get "Unknown command 'factory'"
Again, thank you so much for your contribution here. I have appreciated it greatly.
