are you using the exact files and instructions from the guide, or supplying your own fastpath image?

UPDATE 7/11/2018 - It's been discovered that the version 8 Brocade firmware originally on the site was an internal-use only, untested beta version. It has been removed from the guide and replaced with the latest v7 mainstream release which is rock stable, well tested and has had a few more months of fixes added. Please revert to v7 ASAP if you are still running v8! Instructions are on the site.
UPDATE 2/26/18 - we've figured out a lot of new things since this thread was made (the need to set the MAC address, changing fan speeds, the management port oddness, etc). If you've already flashed your switch, it's worth taking a look at the guide website again. See this post for more info - https://forums.servethehome.com/ind...o-brocade-turboiron.17971/page-12#post-182744
I'm sure you've seen attempts to try and get alternative OS's on the LB6M due to how crippled the included Fastpath build is - and after a lot of exploring bootloaders, @verygeeky and myself were finally able to cleanly flash the LB6M over to a Brocade TurboIron 24x. They're identical hardware, a flash procedure for the bootloader just needed to be figured out.
Some new features you get compared to Fastpath, definitely not an exhaustive list though:
- 1gbE SFP support (including rj45 copper SFP's)
- Much quieter fans with the "fan-speed 1" command
- Properly working STP/RSTP/MSTP
- QoS, traffic shaping/limiting/ACL etc
- Q-in-Q tagging
- Saner syntax (especially the config of VLANs and routing)
- Many new multicast features
- SFlow with a config that doesn't disappear on reboot
- Larger and better supported SNMP MIB
- Deeper and more configurable syslog features
- More than 2000 pages of applicable documentation included
*This does not add IPv6 routing*
The guide is available here - Flashing LB6M To Brocade - FBOM
The markdown source is on our github at this link, if you have any suggestions to make the guide easier to follow, submit a PR - GitHub - Fohdeesha/quanta-brocade: Flashing brocade firmware to Quanta LB6M
Number of flashed chassis is now over 100+ - quite low risk if you can copy/paste.
I'd like to thank @verygeeky for all his help and being the brave first person to hit "reset" after completely replacing his bootloader, not sure if his switch would ever boot again. I'd also like to thank @fvanlint for being the first STH member to get with us on discord and help us develop the guide, and be the first to follow it.
