I was trying to do some testing with legacy PoE and found I could not enable it on my switch running 16.1.1.4. I thought it might have been removed as an option but after looking at the release notes I found that it should be available.

Any thoughts

We have the ssh xmod installed for 15.5 Our production environment and lab environment tend to overlap a little.

I actualy have 2 stacks at the office running 16.1 and neither of them let me enable legacy poe

HI David,

Command to enable the legacy poe detection is modified in the new version 16.1.1. 

Snippet from the 16.1 command reference guide: 
New command: 

configure inline-power detection [802.3af-only | legacy-and-802.3af | bypass]ports port_list 

This command configures PoE device detection mode for Summit and SummitStack. Summit platforms support per-port basis configuration.

History
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 16.1.

That is why, the legacy option do not show up while using the tab. However, if you execute the complete command like 

enable inline-power legacy slot 1 


it will still work. This will facilitate the legacy detection to be enabled in 16.1 if the older version had this command enabled. However this command would be shown up as new command in the configuration. 

Slot-1 Stack.2 # en inline-power legacy slot 1
Slot-1 Stack.4 # sh conf poe
# Module poe configuration.
#
configure inline-power detection legacy-and-802.3af ports 1:1
configure inline-power detection legacy-and-802.3af ports 1:2
configure inline-power detection legacy-and-802.3af ports 1:3
configure inline-power detection legacy-and-802.3af ports 1:4
configure inline-power detection legacy-and-802.3af ports 1:5

Hope this helps!
