I am trying to mirror a port on a X450a-48t so that I can monitor with Wireshark.  I am running "ExtremeXOS version 12.0.3.16".  When I try to create the mirror port I get the following message.

* US-WICHITA-APG-SW1.3 # create mirror wireshark to port 17
                                                               ^
%% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.
* US-WICHITA-APG-SW1.4 #

Is this command supported in the version I am running?+

Hi Dave,
The create mirror command didn't become available until a later EXOS release.  You should be able to use the enable mirroring command though (described here).

I'd recommend an upgrade if possible, as EXOS 12.0 is quite old.  If you are able to get upgraded to 15.3.x  (the last supported set of releases for the X450a product line) you can use the instructions in this article:

Hi Dave,
Were you able to get this working?
