  • Issues with an 8024

    Howdy all. So I inherited a datacenter with some half-baked Dell switches in it. In an effort to straighten the joint up a bit, I dove into the switches to tighten up the VLANing, shutdown unnecessary STP, tune iSCSI, etc. What I found inside of this switch is a huge learning curve for me. I'm a...

  • Intel 10GbE NIC Framing Errors After PC6248 Firmware Upgrade

    Last month we upgraded our PowerConnect 6248 core and iSCSI switches from firmware version 2.x to the latest 3.x version. I discovered recently that framing errors are occurring on two of my Openfiler SAN servers at the extremely regular rate of 1 every 2 seconds, regardless of network traffic flow....
  • Dell PowerConnect 2816 cant boot

    Hi, I have bought a few used PowerConnect 2808, 2816 and 2824 from a company that gave up on them. I dont know for sure, but my guess is a firmware upgrade job went wrong. The switches have this in common that the "Managed Mode" LED keeps flashing green, but never settles as ON or OFF. I decided...

  • Installing SFP+ module in a production PC M6220 in a M1000e chassis

    Hello all, Im looking to expand my iSCSI network by installing 2 external PC6224 switches which will run a LAG from the blade chassi switches (6220) to the new switches. However it came to my attention that modules in the PC6220 switches in the blade chassis aren't hot-pluggable and was wondering...

  • Total bandwidth

    Hi Dennis, looking at the total duplex bandwidth of 128G as backplane capacity in the VC, Avaya stacking solutions claimed to support up to 1.1Terabit on the ERS5600 series of stackable switches. The point is, if the VC is used as TOR solution, would 128G be the choking point especially for machine-to...
