Question

Summit x450a after reset to factory default does not keep configuration


Hi,







I have 2 summit x450a that after they were reset to factory default the switches started up with blank configuration as can be seen from the attached sample below and except for vlan that I was able to configure every other configuration, although seem to be accepted does not show in the console when executing "show configuration" the sections keep showing empty / blank as the attached sample



Does the switch have any "en" mode as cisco?



How Can I configure the switch?







Thanks

There is no enable mode like Cisco has it. Instead, with ExtremeXOS you have admin and user accounts. As the switches were reset to factory default I suspect that you log in with user "admin" and without a password. With this user, configure whatever you like, save the configuration (the command is "save") and you are done.

However, everything you configure should show up in the configuration. This is in real-time, at least with XOS 15.3 and upwards. I do not know older releases and how they behave though.
Thanks for the reply Robert, 2 additional ones did configure and save with no problem, these 2 do not show anything after configuration, sections keep showing empty

Thanks, but I am out for that release. Let us hope that someone with knowledge of 12.x notices this thread.

(Personally, I would say that the configuration was saved correctly [last line of the output]. Maybe just open a case with GTAC?)
🙂 I have opened a case

it will not show even the simplest things

here is an example:

* X450a-24t.1 #
* X450a-24t.1 #
* X450a-24t.1 #
* X450a-24t.1 # sh configuration
#
# Module devmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module vlan configuration.
#

#
# Module fdb configuration.
#

#
# Module rtmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module mcmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module aaa configuration.
#
* X450a-24t.2 # configure snmp sysName "X450a-24t"
* X450a-24t.3 #
* X450a-24t.3 #
* X450a-24t.3 # sh configuration
#
# Module devmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module vlan configuration.
#

#
# Module fdb configuration.
#

#
# Module rtmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module mcmgr configuration.
#

#
# Module aaa configuration.

Thank you in any case Robert 🙂

I would recommend upgrading to 15.3.1.4 latest patch and then reconfigure the switch. 12.4 is end of engineering .
