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

I am having a hard time getting this thing to communicate over serial or work at all. I think I may have bought a dud....

I am trying 9600 8N1 with No hardware or software flow control, but I never get anything other then a "8". I have tried various baud rates and will sometimes get a "P" or other char right after a power cycle but I have not been able to get a good dump.

I am using a Cisco rollover cable and have tried 2 diff USB serial connectors, and still no luck.

The switch appears to have no real damage to it. I checked the internals and tried to "reset" the CMOS by taking out the battery as well as reseated the RAM.

When I use any of the ports I do not get link lights, the only light I ever see is for the PSU.

Does anyone know of anything I could potentially do? I am not afraid of any hardware modifications (JTAG, etc...)

I'm having the exact same issue, I'm able to get on the switch using telnet when I put a cable in the MGMT1 port and It gets an IP from DHCP. I do know the console port should work because the seller sent me a bootlog of both devices I bought so I'm sure I'm doing something wrong...

Also, I found a manual for the LB6M online, I don't think I've seen it in this thread yet so I've added it here: https://djvg.net/dl/LB6M-Manual.pdf

Oh I tried all of that, I'm really wondering if I got the wrong cable.... must be, I tried all combination of settings. Another 'standard' so many types of cables. Sigh :)

Hello,

I have 1 LB6M and 3 LB4M. I would like to connect LB4Ms to LB6M using 2*10Gbit because of redundancy mainly. What is the recommended way? Using port-channel (LAG) or LACP?

Configure and use port channels and set them to dynamic (the default) which is lacp.

So, just to reply back to my own comment. I tried many cables but none of them worked. I just didn't get a console. After making my own rollover cable it started to work. So if you're unsure about the cable you have, make sure it's a rollover.

So, I got this thing running like it should. LACP, VLANs and routing, it all works perfect! Now I want to restrict access to telnet/ssh so I made an access-list (I'm coming from cicsco/brocade) but I can't find a way to attach this list to the ssh or telnet server. The manual is not clear about this.

Has anyone figured this out?

On another brand of switch (Dell Powerconnect 8024) that also runs Fastpath QOS, I use:
Code:
ip ssh server
ip ssh pubkey-auth
ip ssh protocol 2
management access-list "console-access"
permit ip-source a.b.c.d mask 255.255.255.248 priority 10
permit ip-source e.f.g.h mask 255.255.254.0 priority 20
permit ip-source i.j.k.l mask 255.255.255.0 priority 30
permit ip-source m.n.o.p mask 255.255.255.0 priority 40
exit
management access-class console-access
Adjust ip-source and mask as needed.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem to work (commands not found). I'm sure it's possible, not sure how yet.

Has anyone figured out how/if PVLAN is supported on the LB6M? Going through the LB4M manual there doesn't seem to be anything obvious, though knowing this switch I'm sure it's there just under some weird name.

Edit: And I check and the manual has been found! You guys rock! Hopefully there's something useful in there.

Has anyone had issues with ports not reconnecting after the LB6M and/or servers lose power? It's only happened a few times but when I lose power it seems I have to reboot the switch then either reboot attached machines or disable/re-enable the NICs to get them to reconnect. I'm using Mellanox ConnectX-2 NICs and running Windows 10 on desktop and Debian 8.9 on servers. Also running jumbo packets.

Any ideas?

Has anyone tried inter-vlan routing on LB6M? The vlan interface always stuck at 10M Half that make inter-vlan traffic only 10Mbps.
I can not find anywhere in CLI that can change interface vlan speed. Any help?

Code:
# show port all

                  Admin    Physical   Physical   Link   Link    LACP   Actor
 Intf      Type   Mode     Mode       Status     Status Trap    Mode   Timeout

Hello guys,

Have you got the successful cooperation of the LB6M to get working in with the Hyper-V vmSwitch VLANs please?
My config and the initial test:
Two servers (I name them from now S1 and S2).
Two quantas (from now, I name them Q1 and Q2) connected by LCAP (it works with VLANs by 4 SFP+ without hassle, at least this is OK).
The ports of Quantas, I will name lie Q1P1, Q1P2 etc.
Each server has 4 adapters, (I will name them from now S1L1, S2L2 etc)
Adapter are connected as bellow:
S1L1 to Q1P1,
S1L2 to Q1P2
S1L3 to Q2P1
S1L4 to Q2P2

S2L1 to Q1P7
S2L2 to Q1P8
S2L3 to Q2P7
S3L4 to Q2P8
That means, if one of Qantas shutdown, still servers can talk each other.

For the test purposes, I forget about Quanta Q2 and shutdown the switch.
I don't create any teaming on L1-L4 adapters.
I disable all ports except Q1P1 and Q1P7.
Then servers can talk each other on single ports S1L1 on Q1P1 to S2L1 on Q1P7.

I create simple external vmswitch on each server and name it S1VMS1 basis on single adapter S1L1.
The same S2VMS2 from S2L1. All in managementOS.
Then create virtual ethernet adapters. S1VL1 attached to S1VMS1.
S2VL1 attached to S2VMS1.
All in manaegementOS.

Set IP address on S1VL1 =10.0.0.99/24
S2VL2 10.0.0.199/24
Until now, everything works. I can ping each other IPs from S1 and S2.
Then I want VLAN=99.

The short comment. I can say, if I take a simple S1L1 and simple S2L1, just allocate VLAN=99 on them - no hassle, I can ping both interfaces from S1 and S2 Hyper-Vs with VLAN configuration on Q1P1 and Q1P7.
This is fine. But I need those unlucky VMswitches :)

Then I set VLAN on vethernets S1VL1 and S2VL2 let's say VLAN=99.

From now, I have stairs with VMSwitches.
I try -access -vlanid 99 on S1VL1 and S2VL1.
Then -trunk -allowlist 99 -native 99 - I just simplify commands.

On Q1P1 and Q1P7 I am not sure what I need to do then.
I have been trying to addport 1/1 (I will name it Q1A1/1) to both of them, then I have been trying to addport 1/1 to Q1P1 then addport 1/2 (it is Q1A1/2) to O1P7.
Of course to have a port-channel : no port-channel static, vlan participation include 99, vlan pvid 99.
I have been trying all combinations with vlan acceptframes.
I have been trying to add vlan participation to Q1P1 and Q1P7 as well. And without it as well.

OK. Then the question. How is the proper way to get it work please?

Questions:
do I have to do separate trunks on each ports even it is on the same Quanta?
Or shall I group it in one addport?
Shall I allocate VLAN on the phisical adapters (this is not recommended, if I have to use vethernet as I remember)?

My target is: to get teaming on S1L and S2L adapters (probably LCAP?, don't know yet, which one), connect teams to vmswitch, create vethernet with vlans, I guess in trunk.
I don't touch RDMA/iWarp :) etc. yet. But I want to do it. Chelsio are on the way ;) .

Sorry for questions, but it drives me nuts a little bit :)
I became the powershell guru just typing bunch of commands from left to right and right to left, which it's good probably :D but a little bit frustrating. Anyway, from now, I will never use GUI in HyperV to be happy from powershell.

Any help appreciated and welcome.

Cheers,
Marek

I can answer myself for above :) (this is just first step passed).
The vEthernet on the vSwitch has to be setup as trunk.
And simple commands on Quanta:
vlan database
vlan 99

configure interface 0/1,0/7 vlan participation include 99, vlan tagging 99 and... bang!!! everything starts :)

50 pages worth of data in this thread. I have read through a lot of them so I apologize if this is been asked or addressed. In regards to the fan swaps that have been done or even using a fan controller. I was curious. On the stop fans is it documented what the db rating and cfm ratings are on those fans.

voltage 12
operating dc at 7v - 13.2
13000 rpm
cfm 23.8
45db
dual ball bearing


New Fans
Sunon 40x40x20mm 3 pin fan #KDE1204PKVX
Maglev technology
Air Flow: 10.2 CFM / Noise Level: 27 dBA.
Speed: 8,200 RPM

It appears as either i disconnected a sensors some where or not having 4pin fans dont play to nice. Below is output showing nothing for anything basically
