    I flirted with just buying another switch on eBay that had the ears attached if one was cheap enough. Ended up just going with the seller that has the 6450 ears listed as the ICX6450-RMK accessory kit. I think there are still some available but they are $65 with shipping.

    It's an overkill but 2u APC UPS rails can be had for about $25 range.

    Just wanted to say thanks to fohdeesha for lots of great info. I picked up a 6610-48P with the ICX6610-PREM-LIC-SW for my homelab. Looking to setup a 40GB connection between the switch and my NAS. Do I need to purchase a 40GB specific license for this switch or does the Icx6610-10g-lic-pod license enable the 40GB ports? BTW the switch only came with the ICX6610-PREM-LIC-SW license, no cx6610-10g-lic-pod license.

    I just ordered a Mac mini (I know, I know) with the 10GB Ethernet option. I’m looking at copper RJ45 transceivers to hook it up to one of the 6450 switches and they are very pricey. Am I even looking at the right hardware?

    $180 from fiberstore:

    Customized 10GbEBASE-T Copper SFP+ RJ45 Transceiver

    Yes they are. I just ordered 2, S+RJ10 from Streakwave.com in the USA and they were $51/each + $10 shipping UPS Ground.

    If you are in Canada Senetic.ca had the cheapest price but still more than Streakwave.

    So in my quest to quiet my 7250 I went with the next step up from the 9k Delta VHN fan, the 13k SHN. FFB0412SHN-F00.

    It’s worse than the stock 18k fans even though these are rated 5k RPM less. I’m beginning to wonder if these fans are fake or used. I got them from Amazon but when I unboxed them there was some dirt in “hard to clean” spots.

    They also feel much less “substantial” than the VHNs I have. I Googled around quick to see if fake Delta fans is a thing but I didn’t get much.

    I have what may be both an odd and ill-advised request. Is there any way to tag a port with VLAN1? I have a Sophos UTM and it doesn't allow a default/untagged VLAN. Once you enable VLANs on an interface then ALL traffic gets tagged. I could (probably should) just use a different VLAN for everything, but it's just my home network and I just use VLAN1 for most things.

    I haven't been able to do this via CLI since there is no "tagged" command in VLAN1, but I *can* do it via the web interface. The problem is that it doesn't stick across reboots (yes, config is saved.. :)).

    Here is the web config showing that it *is* possible and configured... Port 1/1/24.

    upload_2018-12-22_22-17-45.png

    Here is the CLI that shows the port is tagged VLAN1. It'll run perfectly fine this way until the switch is rebooted. Then, I need to set that port again.

    upload_2018-12-22_22-19-55.png


    Here is the config.. Nothing shows about 1/1/24 being tagged VLAN1.

    Well, I think I can confirm that the SHNs I got were either remarked or fake. I found some genuine SHNs in a Supermicro server I had sitting in a closet and they're definitely "different" fans. The profile and overall feel of the fans is different. Even the center hub is tapered and smaller on the genuine unit. I put then into the switch and it's *much* better now. I'd say it's half as loud as the stock fans and all the whine/buzzing of the fakes is gone, too.

    Temperature increased about 4* vs the stock fans.

    Here are pics of the two fans. First front/back is the fake. Second front/back are the genuine Deltas.

    you technically can't tag vlan 1. this is why I always recommend using a different VLAN for default other than 1, like vlan 10, then you can avoid using dual-mode and also doing weird stuff like this. should take like 30 seconds to move all your ports to vlan 10 instead

    Could you show how to do this? I am a complete noob at all of this. Here is my vlan config.
    Port 1/1/1 is switch to pfsense
    Port 1/1/24 is Ubiquiti WAP with 2 wireless networks.

    Code:
    PORT-VLAN 1, Name DEFAULT-VLAN, Priority level0, Spanning tree Off
     Untagged Ports: (U1/M1)   2   4   6   7   9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16
     Untagged Ports: (U1/M1)  17  18  19  20  21  22  23
     Untagged Ports: (U1/M2)   1   2   3   4
       Tagged Ports: None
       Uplink Ports: None
     DualMode Ports: (U1/M1)   1  24
     Mac-Vlan Ports: None
         Monitoring: Disabled
    
    PORT-VLAN 20, Name IoT, Priority level0, Spanning tree Off
     Untagged Ports: (U1/M1)   3   5   8
       Tagged Ports: (U1/M1)   1  24
       Uplink Ports: None
     DualMode Ports: None
     Mac-Vlan Ports: None
         Monitoring: Disabled

    I’m sure fohdeesha has the answer, but google also appears to:

    Assigning a different VLAN ID to the default VLAN

    Sorry, I guess my question wasn't very clear how do I avoid using dual mode in my config?
    Thanks

    I have been lurking here to find a good switch with 10gbE SFP+ to replace my aging Avaya 5520-48T-PWR and finally pulled the trigger on a Brocade ICX6450-48P now I just need a couple of anyone know if Mellanox ConnectX-3 compatible transceivers works?

    Also any hints to here obtain the ICX6450-10G-LIC POD and ICX6450-PREM-LIC-SW licenses to use all 4 10gbE SFP+ and the Premium Layer 3 features?

    I've managed to read through all 59 pages of this thread so far and learnt a lot, it took a while but it was worthwhile.

    I'm still unsure as to which managed switch to get but as a result of this thread I'm considering switches that I would never have considered before.
