Reference firmware not "checked" after updating X690s to latest reference firmware in EMC

Reference firmware not "checked" after updating X690s to latest reference firmware in EMC

New Contributor II
Hello. In Extreme Management Center (EMC formerly Netsight) version, in the devices section we have 18 various pieces of network gear from Cisco to Extreme listed. In the firmware section I have specified the latest Summit and onie as the "reference" firmware. This past weekend I upgraded two X690 stacks which run our core network. The upgrade went smoothly using EMC but what is interesting is I don't have a checkmark in the reference column despite the firmware now listed as I have some Cisco switches with Cisco IOS firmware set as reference image and the Cisco devices on that firmware version that I have set as reference all have a check mark in the column.

Its not a huge deal, but it is nice to have this column working because at a glance you can see if your gear is up to the latest code level you declared as reference for your environment. Is it a bug, or am I misunderstanding what this column is used for?

I think it's because they're in a stack, so they get a different SNMP OID (EXOS Stack as you can see), they're not identified as an X690. I guess because you can have several switch models in a single stack? Regardless, it is a bit of a bug, I see the same with my X440-G2 stacks, while the individual switches work fine.

Any update on this ?

We’re still observing this on XMC 8.2.7.

This looks like a bug to me. I'd recommend upgrading to and if the problem still exists please create a GTAC case for investigation.
