Foundry SuperX Layer 2 or 3??

     The reseller who sold me my Brocade Foundry told me that it was a Layer 3 management module. I douth it because I can't find any commands sur as Router Rip or Show ip route.

I'll send you info to see if I'm right.  Thanks

Re: Foundry SuperX Layer 2 or 3??

Can be L2 or L3

However in your case SXS05100b states SuperX Switch Ver 5.1.00b

Do a 'show flash' and will will see that the L3 code should be in the secondary flash called something like SXL05100b or SXR05100b
L = base layer 3 (static routes and RIP)
R = Full layer 3 (adds OSPF and VRRP-E)
to boot the switch in the L3 code
user 'boot sys flash sec'
Thanks

Re: Foundry SuperX Layer 2 or 3??

I just add to shut down the whole thing but when itcame back on, it booted from the first flash.

How do I tell it to boot only from the second?

Thanks

Re: Foundry SuperX Layer 2 or 3??

Use the "boot system flash sec" command to tell the switch to boot from the secondary partition of flash upon bootup.

You can also use the "show boot-preference" command to see how the switch is configured to boot.

Re: Foundry SuperX Layer 2 or 3??

it only tells the device to boot to the second flash the next time it will boot.

I want it to boot ALWAYS from secondary flash

If you enter this command from the global prompt then save the configuration, it will persist.
