    Download the SSH xmod that matches your code version. Then Run update

    You need to have the same version number between the xos base image and the various xmod. The patch revision you have (on the primary partition) is a specific release (patch2-1), you should ask for the xmod coming along with that specific release. I doubt it's accessible directly to you.

    Likewise, the LegacyCLI xmod is not in the same patch level revision than the other xmod. It's not recommended to do so.

    So it looks you installed every other xmod. You need the SSH xmod. You have to apply to download it, but the link to that should be with the rest of those images.

    Hello Sikander,

    There should be a link for the SSH xmod on the same page of eSupport as the other images that you have downloaded. The link will go to a site where you can apply for the xmod. The xmod is under governance of US Trade Restriction and we run a check on the applicant. After trade compliance has passed, you will be emailed a link to download the xmod. TFTP that xmod to your switch just like you were downloading another image version, for example

    from my notes (for x350 with old firmware):

    1) download correct ssh.xmod version for Your switch

    * switch4.5 # show switch

    Primary ver: 12.6.2.10

    Config Selected: primary.cfg
    Config Booted: primary.cfg

    2) start tftp on you LAN pc (for me it working on IP:192.168.1.159)

    * switch4.6 # download image 192.168.1.159 summitX-12.6.2.10-patch1-15-ssh.xmod vr "VR-Default" primary

    Do you want to install image after downloading? (y - yes, n - no,

    Note: The new version 21.1.1.4 code released last week for EXOS has SSH slipstreamed and embedded into the base OS and you do not need to do anything with the SSH XMOD. On code 16.x here is what I have done. You do not need to do a reboot for SSH to work.
