and if I load one of the lb6m.x.x.x.x.bin files, I get

and then it hangs

I Got it working. Turns out the 7024 that I got from Unix+ has custom firmware. We got a second one as a backup. I copied the firmware to a server and loaded it into the dead switch. now it is booting and good to go!

So you want to claim that you succeeded to put DELL firmware in LB6M or what ?

The replacement Delta Broadcom ET-DT7040 arrived and I confirmed that the 10GB SFP ports work. I now want to use one of the 4 RJ45 ports and connect it to our gigabit switch to use as extension. I tried it but no traffic was passing, I'm using a CAT6 cable. Do I need to configure them to work? Also, ports 21-24 are available in SFP and RJ45 and are labelled 'combo'. What does that mean exactly?

Traffic should become to flow by default if switch that you get are with default settings... Otherwise you have to reset settings to their default values or to check if there are some configurations accidentally left by previous owner... Combo port mean that you cannot use them at the same time... You can use SFP 21 OR copper 21 but not both of them...

What was the firmware version number that was installed on the second switch, did you happen to notice if it loaded at 0x8000000 ? Great that you got it going, now that you have the firmware are you going to try for Dell 8024f again ?

First off, very nice photo, very clear !
If your router is set as your DHCP server just attach that RJ45 cable between an open port on the router and where you have it. It should show activity on the leds just above the RJ45 cable on the switch. Once you know if the port is working, you have a little more info going forward.

Kartoff and Mangodoc, thanks for the input.
I tried all 10Gb ports on the switch and confirmed that they're passing traffic, that's good. It's just the RJ45 ports that is the issue. What's odd is if I use the same cable on the pic, and attach it to the OOB ServicePort at the back, set the protocol to DHCP, it will pull an ip address automatically. Using the ports 21-24 RJ45, setting the Network protocol to DHCP, nothing happens. No link or act lights lit.

Another test I did was plug a server w/ a 10Gb nic to ports 21-24 SFP and the connection is active (link/act lights are lit, show port all shows port as active). If I connect the same server using its 1Gb nic to ports 21-24 RJ45, link/act lights are off on the switch and show port all shows the target port as no link/down.

henryn, are you sure that you dont have to tell somewhere in switch settings that you want to use copper port instead of SFP ? As i remember some switches had command for that...

I looked at the available settings but still couldn't figure it out. For those who own this model (Delta Broadcom ET-DT7040), are you able to use the RJ45 ports with no problems or initial configuration?

Ok, found my answer. The unit has 24 SFP+ and 4 RJ45 combo ports. The RJ45 ports only support 10Gb links, it doesn't support 1Gb links. The eBay listing shows "4x RJ-45 1000Base-T (100Mb/1G)" however, this is false. Below is the show sysinfo output.

Hello guys,

today i got a Quanta LB6M switch and i want to use it as a "normal" switch. I can access it via telnet, but i dont know how to set up :). Can someone give me the commands to set up like a switch with all the SPF+ and all the Gigabit ports activated and inter-connectable, without any VLAN or any fancy stuffs.

Thank you.

LE: Nevermind, seems its configured and acting as i wanted (switching between all the ports).
Can i save the current configuration and restore it on another LB6M if it will comes with another configuration, or this is the default configuration for them?
Thank you again.

That is the default config from factory. If you want to save a config you can type 'write memory' or 'reload' if you want to revert a unit back to factory settings. If by gigabit ports you mean the 4X RJ45 ports, I've a feeling these are also 10Gb ports in RJ45 form factor and they're not backwards-compatible to 1Gb links. Run 'show sysinfo' and see if there are any interfaces under 1Gb, you at my above post for reference.

henryn, he talks about LB6M, not Delta :) On LB6M copper ports are only 1G instead of 10G ;)
I was aware that he has an LB6M. What I didn't know was the RJ45 ports on that model are only 1Gb. That's interesting. I assumed all these models are the same since they have the same OS. I think the Dell 8024F is also like the Delta, 10Gb only on all ports.

Man, if the LB6M could do auto-neg on the copper ports for 1Gb and 10Gb, that would be the perfect unit for us.

As you can see in this attachment under "Show SysInfo", I'm using 3 different interfaces, 10/100, Gig & 10 Gig. This is a Delta Networks ET-DT7024 24 Port 10GB SFP+ 4 x10GBase-T Layer 3 Switch with Dell PowerConnect 8024F firmware 5.1.11.1.

I'm using RJ45 ports 21-24

port 21 = 10/100 Ethernet to Brother MultiFunction printer
port 22 = Gig Ethernet to laptop
port23 & port 24 = Gig (2Gig) Lag to NAS

port 1 = 10Gig DAC to Netgear R9000 modem
port 3 & port 4 = 10Gig (20Gig) DACs Lag to desktop
port 14 & port 15 = Gig (2Gig) Lag to Dlink DSN-4100 Disk Array
port 19 & port 20 = Gig (2 Gig) Lag to desktop

Wow! I'm assuming that the Dell OS gives it that functionality? I may try loading it if that's the case.

One thing that's not clear to me is that your sysinfo shows what seems to be active connection, e.g. only 4 10Gb interfaces but the unit has 24. Mine shows all 24 ports as 10Gb. What does your sysinfo show if you unplug all ports?

You are correct, it show active ports. If I unplug everything it would show "0" for all.
Thanks mangodoc. Regardless, it's great info to me that your 7024 can do all those. I may try asking my seller if he can just swap my Delta Broadcom 7040 with a DNI 7024.

My DNI 7024F arrived today, I was unable to flash the Dell 8024F firmware. I found that Cisco GLC-SX-MM work to tack this bad boy
on to my Cisco 3560G switch.
