1. Many vendors do require specific vendor codes on the eeprom of transceivers. I don't believe any of your equipment does though. I would just tell them to make it cisco, so you can use them on a Cisco if you ever needed to since they vendor lock.


2. The adapters are correct, lc-lc. The wallplate won't work though, wrong dimensions.

3. I can't say definitively, having never used one. But if it doesn't it's a crap switch and belongs in the garbage.

Appreciate the advice, Aero, including a confirmation that the wall plate isn't right.

@dave On page 12 of this thread there should be the settings / config to perform LAG and LACP on the LB6M.
Thanks @qamaro! I should have done a comprehensive review of this thread first. FWIW I scanned through all 105 pages of the E5-2670 thread last weekend - I learned a lot but I also haven't quite recovered from the brain overload that resulted. I should be able to read full threads again soon ;)

Hey! I agree! too many pages to read! Its very informative though to hear everyones advice and opinions. I learn so much this way. Also, check page 11, post #220 for startup info.

1. Yeah I don't think you would have a problem with most transceivers when using the lb6m. The switch seems to take all types of transceivers with ease. Even the cheapo chinese one's. I use Chelsio and Mellanox NICs in my server and htpc with no problems whatsoever from the lb6m. I might see you having a problem depending on the type of fiber cable you use. Make sure it is 50/125 multimode fiber if you can help it. I think this type is latest and best. I see that's the type you are looking at so that's good.

2. As long as the connector is LC, I believe the connector will fit. The faceplate you linked to seems right, but I am not sure. The plastic flange adapter looks good too. I bought several myself to have, just in case I need to extend my fiber cable for longer length.

3. Hmm...the 3rd question seems complicated. So you wanna aggregate bandwidth between switches? I mean, you can LAG ports on one switch for 20gbps or more, but not sure if you can aggregate the two switches together for increased bandwidth. It might very well be possible though. I am still fairly new to the command line on the switch, and I have only just mastered the startup config needed to get the switch running with the help of all the members of the thread, so i'm not sure on this. Masters of the command line, a fellow member and owner of this glorious switch needs help. Any suggestions my friends?

The wall plate dimensions say 86x86 mm, but perhaps that is from edge to edge of the entire plate. They have a picture of one of the plates with the LC connectors installed, and it looks right, so it probably is exactly what you would need.

Hey, come on now, its a joke. A joke!

definition : joke - Google Search

Lighten up my friend!

Why insult my knowledge? Or imply I'm not mature? Just because I made a joke? Come on now man. You might be alittle out of line here.

I don't require an apology or anything, but insults isn't something that a mature man flings around either now is it? Hmm???

We are all learning here are we not? I can't or never professed to know everything! I mean, at least I don't think I did! (Heheh.)

Life isn't meant to get mad at everyone's jokes. Take it easy Don my man. Take it easy! Heart attacks might ensue!

Also, If I am not correct, weren't you the one who kinda started/led in to the joke? (post 278) Kinda odd there no?

Oh...last thing. Take a second look at my avatar pic and signature....

Who said I was mad or whatever you claim I was. It was an even better joke my friend. And we need entertainment here and we are getting truck loads of it. So, thank you!!! ;)

Great! Glad you aren't mad! Had me worried there my friend! We should all be friends here! No harm, no foul. I like and appreciate all you guys on here as I see you all as kindred spirits and lovers of technology! I do make alot of jokes, but I promise I will never, ever make fun of anyone. No matter what. You can even go back and double check all my posts! (Nah, never mind, you don't wanna read all my shitty posts!)

Besides, I wanted to ask you a question about putting the switch in your closet my friend. Will you be running fiber cables to the closet? Guess depending on how far away your router is, you may need to make your own cables right? I was thinking about doing the same, but all my equipment is close together in the living room and I got the switch to be quiet, so I didn't bother. My next plan is to get a 42u rack or something. I want a nice one though, since it would be sitting in my living room. I am still scouting Craigslist for a decent deal.

I don't need a router for the Gigabit internet connection from my power utility company I have. They drop fiber up to the electric board and from there its CAT6 to the closet. All my server equipment resides there. To all other nook and corner of the house its wireless or wireless ac (> 1 Gbps) bridge if the bandwidth is really required like to my htpc.

Ok, after scouring the manual, I finally figured out how to change the username on the switch. (Thanks to Chisty Hussain for pm'ing me and asking me the question. You rock, Chisty!)

Well, as it turns out, you can't actually change the default username of the switch, (which is "admin") you may only add another username. You can then give it read and write privileges as needed to make it just like the default administrator's account. You can have up to 6 users/usernames for the switch.

Now it is quite a few steps, but it's very easy too. Let's begin. First:

1) Login (SSH or Telnet) (In this case, the username will be admin, then press enter, and when it asks for the admin password, if you have one set enter it, if not, leave that sucker blank and press enter.

2) Type: enable (then press enter, when asked for password, if one is set, enter it, if not set, leave it blank and press enter)

3) Type: show users

Here, a list of all the usernames/users should pop up. You should see 2 items in the list, admin and guest. admin should have read/write privilege and guest should only have read privilege.

4) Next, Type: config then press enter.

5) Type: password min-length 0 (This sets the switch to accept a blank default password for the new user you are gonna create)

6) Now Type: username (name of new user/username you want to add) nopassword level 15

Example: username sleyk nopassword level 15

(Note: you can set the level of access for the user to 0 or 15. The number 15 sets the user to have read and write privilege, (read/write) and the number 0 sets the new user to have only read privilege. Set whatever privilege you want the username to have)

7) Now type: exit

8) Now type: write memory (when asked if you wanna save, go ahead and type "y" my peeps.)

Ok, so if you got this far, congrats and SUCCESS!!! You now have a new user/username created. Now to add the password:

9) Type: username [type whatever name you created] password [type desired password here]

Example:
username sleyk password xxxxxxx ("x" being whatever phrase you created for a password)

10) Press enter. Your new password should be entered.

11) Then, type: exit

12) Type: write memory (Always, always remember to do this, if not, upon reboot, you will lose all unsaved settings)

13) Type "y" then save is complete.

To test if you were successful with all this command line kung fu:

Type: show users

Now, you should see 3 items in the list popup. admin, guest and whatever new name you added.

*********************************************************************************************

Finally, if some poor schmuck added a name and he/she later wanted to erase the sorry and pitiful choice of name they used, you know, 'cuz your naming skills is shit, here is how to delete the username:

1) Login using the admin account.

2) Type: enable

3) Type: config

4) Type: no username (whatever user/username you wanna delete/erase from existence and/or reality) press enter.

Example: no username sleyk

Press enter.

5) Now type: exit

Then type: write memory

Press enter, then when the switch asks to save config, type "y" of course.

Now, check that shit by typing: show users

You should now see the list without the username that you deleted, because, well, you know......you deleted it.

If you still see the user/username in the list after deleting it, you did it wrong my peep and peepette, and in which case you need to start over from step one of the delete process and do this shit again.

Happy Naming my friends! Don't forget to check out post #220 for startup info for newbies just getting the switch! Hope this helped you guys out!

Below you can find a snippet of a lb6m running Indigo on 2.6.25-bcm-ntsw

Seems there is a forum limit for 10000 letters/post so here is my second post ( as it did not fit in the first). As you can see there is ssh and web access for it and it works. This is just temporary as it does not modify any file on your switch, but don't come after me if all hell breaks loose and you break your switch. So you had been warned. When you reboot your switch it will go to your old fastpath application.

At this moment I don't plan to make an uploadable image, but if the request is high I might do that as well.

Now if anyone understands openflow's rc.soc please let me know as I think we might fix the port issues but I am not in a hurry to understand rc.soc. I have tried the one inside switchdrvr but it seems switchdrvr does more that just using this file to boot up it's internal (or infernal) openflow. For now just have fun with this.

Here is a good deal on this switch a NATEX.us....

Quanta LB6M 10GB 24-Port SFP+ Switch with 2 x SFP+ transceiver modules

The LB6M is priced at $298 .... I am really considering this as I currently need a minimal of eight spf+ ports in a switch. I suspect this is the best deal available. However, I am concerned about the CLI only as I sometimes struggle with my EdgeRouter. Any advice? I would only need to place a few ports into a different VLAN as I am setting up a 4 node ceph cluster.

Thanks!

Hey Caleb! Welcome to STH my friend! We are glad to have ya!

Yeah, you should be ok with the switch. Most of the commands to get the switch up and running are here on the thread. I gathered quite a bit of info from the knowledge poured into the thread by the amazing guys here and put some of it into a single post. There is also alot more on VLAN's and setting up LAG i haven't gotten a chance to include too. I was thinking of typing up a small text document with the info from the posts to make it easier to just download the document and follow the instructions from there. See my post #220 on page 11 and post #295 on this page for info to begin setup. I wrote the instructions in a very easy, lighthearted manner to make it easy to understand and follow. I tried to include simple examples for command line syntax so that you can know just how to space the words and everything.

The switch is currently only command line right now, but we also have great guys like Sorin who just posted right above your post. He is working with someone right now, to try putting a different firmware on the switch to allow us to have a web/http gui and other cool features. Correct me Sorin if I'm overselling/understating your work!

All in all, you also have the knowledgeable guys here on the forum and this thread if you need anything. Don't be afraid to ask questions my friend.

We will do our best to help you.

Oh, and great price on the switch. I paid $400 bucks for mines!

This is how I feel when I can't get a deal like you:
