currently i use ZTP+ for automatic switch update and configuration at customers branch. Ping latency to central XMC is round-about 25ms.

XMC recognize there is a new switch with ZTP+ and because firmware does not equal to reference firmware an update is running. Fine.

Unfortunately this update is done via tftp. So now waiting for 1 hour - tftp is still running ....

Is there a way to speed up?  Related to other switches config backups or firmware updates i would switch over to TCP based SCP.
But how can i do that with ZTP+ process? How can i speed up?

I am pretty sure this issue was already solved by Extreme because all cloud based solutions run into same problem ...

XMC = 8.1.1.41  // EXOS = X440-G2 - 22.4.1.2

under XMC control in the Firmware panel.  

You can designate a transfer protocol for device families, or individual device types.

Thanks for that worthful advice - i will check that.


I think it would be nice if that parameter would be assigned to a specific site. It makes that more flexibel ...
