Is NetConf supported by Summit X440-8t?


Hi community,

We recently bought several Summit X440-8t switches. Right now I'm trying to perform some configuration tasks via NetConf protocol. NetConf is listed as a supported feature of Summit switches:
http://itconnection.currentanalysis.com/COMPETE/Integrations/EITC/static/products/p48-396-87095.aspx

But I can't find "NetConf" anywhere in the official user guide "ExtremeXOS-15.5-User-Guild.pdf". Also, I tried to telnet the switch with the default TCP port (830) of NetConf, but no response from the switch.

Is this feature supported or not?

Thanks,
Eric

Hello Eric

I clicked on your link and didnt see any reference to NETCONF so I can comment on that information but as of right now we do not support NETCONF. We do support XML.

Can you provide a little more information for what you are requiring and I can run it past PLM?

Thanks

Thanks Paul! I didn't expect someone respond so quickly.

I'm working on a research project and I'm concerned about the AVB feature. I saw that OpenFlow is supported on x440-8t, right? So is it possible to configure switches via OpenFlow with regard to AVB (e.g., explicit routes for schedule traffic, best effort traffic routing)?

OpenFlow is a license enabled XMOD EXOS feature. To use OpenFlow, the OpenFlow XMOD must beinstalled and a switch specific OpenFlow license must be enabled.

Yes. X440 do support Openflow and AVB feature with the license and Min EXOS 15.3

Thanks Sumit!

We do have a AVB license. Do we need a separate license for Openflow or the AVB one is sufficient?

I believe we need OpenFlow license too in order to enable openflow.

Hey Eric

If you need to test AVB you can enable a temp license on the switch that is good for 30 days before it needs to be re-applied.

here are the commands

debug epm enable trial-license

debug epm clear trial-license

Note the switch will reboot after 30 days to clear the license

Hope that helps.
