Difference between SWS, SPR, SWR, and SPS?

[ Edited ]

What is the Difference between SWS, SPR, SWR, SPS, etc?

 

I can't find a list of the software image types and what the abbreviations mean. Thanks!

 

eg. SWS08030h.bin *or* swz10106.bin

@jlarocqu

 

assuming you ask for a Image for ICX Series Switches

 

see URL below for some details, otherwise post more Info, with exact Switch Modell

Re: Difference between SWS, SPR, SWR, and SPS?

well, and I ask for Switch Model, is

 

ICX-7250

 

ICX-7450

 

or

 

ICX-7750

 

some image are for Additional Module, some for switch itself and boot Image

 

simplest way if you don't are confident with the switch strat a upgrade with the command

 

copy tftp system-manifest TFTP_IP_ADDRESS NAME_OF_Manifest.txt all-images-primary or secondary

 

where the "Manifest.txt" name is the name of manifest in the Firmware package

SWRxxxx.sig is Routing Mpode Signature

 

SWSxxxx.sig is Switch Mode Signature

 

swzxxxx.sig is boot Image Signature

 

SWRyyyy.bin is a routing Image - Routing License/Layer3  is required

 

SWSyyyy.bin is a Switch Image no additioanl License is requires = Layer2

 

SWZ_release

 

example: swz10106.bin is a boot Image Code
