portswap on DCX8510 - FC16-48

  • 1.  portswap on DCX8510 - FC16-48

    Posted 01-30-2015 08:17 AM

    Has anyone been able to get the portswap command to work on the DCX8510 with FC16-48  port blades running FABOS 7..2.1?

    The admin manual says that it will work only on ports 0-15 but that doens't work -- we get an error message that it is not supported on these blades.

     

    Thanks

    DMD127,

     

    I found this notice,

     

    1. If the ports had been previously swapped on a port blade of lower density that was then replaced by the FC8-64 blade, the portswap command can be used to undo the swap but not to perform new swaps.

     

    2. If the FC8-64 blade is within a logical switch, then the portswap command may be used.  

     

    the notice refer to FC8-64, but no restriction are know to me for the FC16, so I assume this is the same for FC16-64
