Change the Network Operating System

Onboard the device to ExtremeCloud IQ.

Universal switches are preloaded with two Network Operating Systems (NOS): Switch Engine and Fabric Engine. Switch Engine is the default NOS. Use this task to change the current default NOS to Fabric Engine.

  1. Select Manage > Devices
  2. Locate the device in the Device List and select it.
    Notice that under Host Name, the name extension is Switch Engine. For example, Switch Engine 5520-48W-Switch Engine.
  3. Select Actions > Change OS to Fabric Engine
  4. Select Yes.

The Host Name now has the Fabric Engine extension. If you select Actions again, the option says Change OS to Switch Engine.
