I am working in getting ipv6, dos-control, http and all the rest working (including bgp, switch stacking).... have a little patience.

Thus far I managed to start https on a switch that did not have the option ( actually I have all available commands (including ipv6) ) but they need to be tested and I still need to do some more work. At the moment I still need to fix http's issue as it always returns 404 now.
I know it's been more than a year, but I have a lb6m (and a lb4m) on order right now and this (along with running indigo (or even vyos) on this switch) greatly interests me - if you need someone with a switch to test things get ahold of me, I'll be playing with both switches a fair bit before pushing it into production usage

LB6M came in today, quieter than expected... I've got r210's here that are louder when idle. Fair amount of coil whine though, I'll have to get in there with some silastic and see if I can dampen some of those vibrations.

Mine came with 1.2.0.14 as the startup image and 1.2.0.18 as the backup image, fastpath routing for both

Anybody check this out?
When I was younger (and dumber) I did this with a stack of pci gigabit cards, a P4 box, and debian. Worked kinda sorta well enough, but the ASIC's in a 'real' switch will do a much faster and more efficient job of it than a cpu-based switch ever will

So....I have been looking at building my own switch from "scratch" as well. This would work in conjunction with the LB6M. My LB6M is great, and the quieter fans are good, but I can't say I don't worry about the heat that this thing is building up inside on a daily basis. Anybody check this out? There seems to be a youtube video on it. VYOS seems like its working considerably well for this. Also, i think Pfsense can do it with Chelsio cards. If I do build it, I will post pics.

Also, If i do build it, it would hopefully be quieter and cooler, albeit less ports than the LB6M. Then I can put the original fans back in and shut it away in my utility closet where it can scream all it wants and not be heard. Lol! ;)
You should probably start a new thread to track this.

Functionally what you propose should work just fine - but one issue you will have at 10g speeds is inter-packet latency. When you work with a switch built on switching silicon you can get packets on/off the PHYs very fast. But when doing the same function on a general purpose CPU design you have to get the packets through the NIC card, across the PCI bus, through whatever processing you plan to do, and then back out the PCI bus and the NIC. You are adding several hundred uS, perhaps 10s of mS, for every packet. At 1Gbe speeds this is no big deal, but at 10Gbe speeds this is an eternity...(a 1500byte packet takes about 1.5ms to transmit at 10Gbe - so you can probably see the disaster if you are adding 10s of ms to the inter-packet latency).

The Brocade chips, OTOH, start making their switching decisions after processing the first few bytes of most packets and are already enqueuing them for transmit before the whole packets is received on the inbound PHY...

Vyatta (VYOS) and pfSense are both good starting points. Also look at Mikrotik ROS (routerOS) or SWos (SwitchOS). The Mikrotik software is very lean and fast - though you might struggle to find drivers for your NICs.

Hello All,

Also, if you wanna reset all config settings, and start over, djflow195's 4 steps work great:

1) Hook up a serial cable to the RJ45 console port (Cisco console cable works)
2) Open a serial console 9600-8N1 no flow control
2) Power cycle the switch
3) When prompted, go into the boot menu (not the UBoot menu)
4) Restore factory defaults (which erases the config files).
Hello,

I need to reset to factory and clear the current password. I have followed the above steps via the suggested method but it doesn't seem to work.

At boot up, I was given 3 seconds to interrupt the process. When pressing any key to interrupt, it took me to uBoot.

The only command I see that can apply is "reset". All others command is not related. However, typing reset will just reset and reboot the unit. It doesn't do anything else.

I don't see any other prompt as the system load directly to the "user" prompt.

I also have another unrelated question. There are two Service Ports labeled as MGNT 1 and MGNT 2. However, only port number 1 works. Does anyone have any idea what the MGNT 2 port is for?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Best regards,

Andrew

You're interrupting the u-boot boot when you need to be interrupting the fastpath boot - You'll see
Code:
Select startup mode.  If no selection is made within 5 seconds, 
the FASTPATH Application will start automatically...
That's where you want to hit 2 and then enter, then you should be able to erase the startup config

what the MGNT 2 port is for?
I'm assuming it would have been configured as a failover management interface back when Amazon used these. Might be able to configure it as a separate management interface on a different subnet from mgmt1 if you want to, but I haven't had much time to play with that part of this switch yet

Thank you so much epers! I will give it a try today.

Do you happen to know the command to disable the "enable" password?

I also encountered another issue. It may be nothing but still a concern. When I use the "reload" command on 2 switches, one of them reloaded no problem. However, the other got stuck and doesn't go anywhere. I had to cold unplug and plug back in for it to work again.

Thinking this could be a corrupted image, I switched system boot to the backup image (1.2.0.18). However, it still have the same.Just want to see if anyone else ran into this before. I am reluctant to put it into a live environment thinking there could possibly be a bad switch. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

- FIRST SWITCH (the stuck switch):

(FASTPATH Routing) #reload
Are you sure you would like to reset the system? (y/n) y
System will now restart!
Reference platform resetting ...
Starting pid 872, console /dev/ttyS0:
'/etc/rc.d/rc.reboot'
syncing filesystems....This may take a few moments
umount: forced umount of /mnt/fastpath failed!
umount: forced umount of /mnt/application failed!
Rebooting system!
The system is going down NOW !!
Sending SIGTERM to all processes.
Terminated
/etc/rc.d/rc.fastpath: /etc/rc.d/rc.fastpath: 1: 1:
not found
/mnt/application
FASTPATH not executed!
Press <ENTER> to continue...
Please stand by while rebooting the system.
Restarting system.
Reset didn't, spinning!

- SECOND SWITCH (reloaded without any problem):

(LB6M1) #reload
Are you sure you would like to reset the system? (y/n) y
System will now restart!
Reference platform resetting ...
Starting pid 872, console /dev/ttyS0:
'/etc/rc.d/rc.reboot'
syncing filesystems....This may take a few moments
umount: forced umount of /mnt/fastpath failed!
umount: forced umount of /mnt/application failed!
Rebooting system!
The system is going down NOW !!
Sending SIGTERM to all processes.
Terminated
/etc/rc.d/rc.fastpath: /etc/rc.d/rc.fastpath: 1: 1:
not found
/mnt/application
FASTPATH not executed!
Press <ENTER> to continue...
Please stand by while rebooting the system.
Restarting system.

- Here's the bootvar and show ver for both switches. They are identical so I included output from the one that got stuck:

Depends on what you mean by IP video - should be able to just enable multicast (if it isn't by default) and be all set
I would have thought the multicast config would be straightforward on the LB6M. I am using test gear to generate 4 multicast streams. The streams are flooding all ports no matter what I do in the config. The command structure in the LB6M is different than what is in the documents available for the LB4M. I would be interested in speaking to anyone who has successfully enable multicast video on the LB6M.

could be a corrupted image
Yeah, it's probably fubar. Try copying the image from the working switch, you'll need a tftp or ssh server, and then throwing it on the non-working switch and see if that improves things.

Thank you very much. Strangely, I don't see the FASTPATH Application message on either switches. According to this link, I am supposed to see a message which can interrupted:

Image Name: FASTPATH System for lb4m
....that's strange. Pastebin the output of show tech-support and post the link here.

And then do this to load a known good copy of lb6m 1.2.0.18 firmware on the switch:
Grab a copy of 1.2.0.18 from here: lb6m.1.2.0.18.img

Get your tftp server running, interrupt the u-boot bootup, and follow Sorin's instructions from page 15 post #296 to boot from the tftp server:
Code:
setenv netmask switch_netmask
setenv ipaddr switch_ip
tftpboot 0x8000000 tftp_server:00_firmware bootm 0x8000000
but sub 00_firmware for lb6m.1.2.0.18.img

If that boots properly and lets you get into the fastpath boot menu and clear the config, then you'll have to copy that image from your tftp server again onto the switches internal flash

Almost looks like you've got the lb4m firmware on there but I'm not sure

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.

I need that configuration on my delta :(( can't figure out how to do it yet

After modifying all the fans to being Noctua

So this thing is silent it looks like it sets off a couple of the warning sensors
Its dead silent should I be concerned?

ok, swapped out DAC cables and made sure all connections are tightly plugged in and in the right ports. I had pc and server plugged into ports 21 and 22 instead of 23 and 24. i plugged them into ports 23 and 24 so that it is inline with what i previously wrote. Still unfortunately, no go. I did another show port all: Ports 23 and 24 now show up as being "up" instead of ports 21 and 22:

Same problem persists. I cant log into the server from the sfp+ ports, but wireless i can login through my access point with my laptop. It is odd how the internet and lan ethernet signal passes through to the 10gigabit ports, but if i try to go from pc to server, whether through windows networking or webgui, the server doesn't show.

Hello,

A newbie question. Can I use this switch as a router? I would like to route internal vlan to external vlan. Will that be possible to do with the LB6M?

Thank you in advance for your help.

I have two of the Delta DNI 7024F switches. Both are configured and working, but the status light on the front is blinking blue and amber. I don't see anything wrong looking at the environment sensors and logs. Is this normal? Is anyone else's solid blue?

I cracked open one of them when I first got them and remember the light can be disconnected from the board. I may just do that.

Thanks

....that's strange. Pastebin the output of show tech-support and post the link here.

And then do this to load a known good copy of lb6m 1.2.0.18 firmware on the switch:
Grab a copy of 1.2.0.18 from here: lb6m.1.2.0.18.img

Get your tftp server running, interrupt the u-boot bootup, and follow Sorin's instructions from page 15 post #296 to boot from the tftp server:

but sub 00_firmware for lb6m.1.2.0.18.img

If that boots properly and lets you get into the fastpath boot menu and clear the config, then you'll have to copy that image from your tftp server again onto the switches internal flash

Almost looks like you've got the lb4m firmware on there but I'm not sure
Hi,

I did all that, still same issue:
