too much for a broken switch. I'll pay around 150 + shipping for a broken one. I have no idea if I can get it to work in the first place. it's just a hobby for me.I paid $469.00 for mine. How bout $300.00 and we split shipping?
Just curious, you have Quanta OS on it right? Mine has Cumulus.I just purchased an LB8. I am able to get into it using Cisco usb to console cable. I have logged in as admin and enabled to get to the editing stage. I reset the switch to factory defaults (version 184.108.40.206). I had trouble setting an ip for the management port (serviceport ip) it kept telling me invalid ip address. I switched modes (serviceport protocol dhcp) to DHCP and was able to get it to pull an IP address. Here is the problem. In the LB8 user's guide it states there is a web interface. I try to access the switch using chrome or IE to the management port ip address (nothing else is connected). I get a message that the connection was refused. Does anyone know how to enable the web interface. The manual makes it look like it is just there and running.
Still using Ceph for clustered storage and FreeNAS 9.10 w/ Chelsio T580-LP-CR NICs for a higher-speed backup box. But that 40GbE option is not really ideal if you are using 10GbE only switches.Network switches are working great. I am waiting for cables to migrate more machines. Now I need to plan for storage upgrades. I need to get the write speeds up. What do all of you use for network storage when you have 10Gbe or 40Gbe networks?
