Will this be the recommended release for the X440-G2 and X460-G2 platforms?

Hi Terren,
It likely will eventually be listed as the recommended release, but keep in mind the criteria listed at the top of the page there.

The recommendation for Most Stable Release is based on the following criteria:

  • Recommended releases should have no open critical issues introduced in the respective version.
  • Recommended releases should have been deployed in the field for at least three months. As an exception, the latest release would be recommended if critical fixes affecting existing deployment were added to the release.
  • Internal SQA testing must be completed without encountering any new issues.
  • Recommended releases should have been reviewed and accepted by Engineering team leads.
The recommended Latest Feature Release is typically the newest EXOS release. It contains the latest set of features and is fully supported; however, it does not yet have a history of evaluation in the field that is as extensive as the Most Stable Release.

Hi, Thank you.

I recently failed to add X440-G2 12P to telemetry and I opened a case, and was given a patch 22.4.1.4 path 2-5.

I am wondering if the support for telemetry on 22.5.1 is there for X440G2 12P?

Thanks,

STP via MLAG is good, but not good implemented.In XOS 22.1? MSTP was implemented for easier STP configuration, without need of untagged vlan on STP-enabled port...If you wan't to use STP and MLAG you need to go back to to RSTP and need to configure a untagged vlan on interswitch-links... I don't understand, why going this way...

Well, they added MSTP over MLAG in 22.6.

Is there any reason 22.5 got an announcement post but 22.6 didn't?

The day I was going to post the 22.6 announcement is the day our community host was having problems. I'll see if I can get it posted today.
