SX-FI-2XG

I can't get the SX-FI-2XG recognized in the FSX.

Got this message every time I insert the module: unknown module id: 0x6c

Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Moved to the correct space.  Also, what is the other management module you have in the FSX chassis you are trying to insert the SX-FI-2XG into?  Some of the MMs can't go with others.

Hi Huy,

     Can you please post a "show version" - I think you need to be on 7.4.00 code for the SX-FI-2XG to work and be using a SX-800 or SX-1600.  Not sure what you have and version.

Thanks

Michael.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for the reply.  I have 1 SX-FI42XG, 7 SX-FI424C and a SX-FI12GM1 in the chassis.  I disabled the S3 and removed it.  Hot-inserted the SX-FI-2XG and this a show module, here this is how it look.

Please let me know what you think?  Do I need to upgrade the firmware for that SX-FI-2XG.  Thank you.

Re: SX-FI-2XG

Hi Huy,

     I do not believe the SX-FI12GM management model can support the SX-FI2XG cards at all, not matter what version of Ironware installed.

Think at min you need SX-FIZMR

Thanks

Michael.

Re: SX-FI-2XG

Hi Huy,

I agree with Michael.  Also, it looks like you might have a SuperX chassis as opposed to a SX-800 or SX-1600.  The SX-FI2XG cards will not work in the SuperX chassis.

Re: SX-FI-2XG

FYI - The SX-FI62XG  - 2-port XFP 10 Gigabit Ethernet module, is the 2 port XFP model that will work in a SuperX.

Thanks

Michael.

Re: SX-FI-2XG

Hi Michael,

As a follow-up, I did a little bit of additional investigating over here and I didn't find any of this very well documented.  So, I ended up confirming the pieces below with the Product Manager.  Most of it is what you have already stated above.  This is intended to be a summary and confirmation for the thread.

  • The SX-FI-2XG interface module will not operate in an SuperX chassis.
  • The SX-FI-2XG does work in an SX-800 or SX-1600 chassis with 7.3.00 or later.
  • The SX-FI-2XG works with the SX-FIZMR, SX-FI2XGMR4 or SX-FI2XGMR6 and associated PREM versions.
