show memorycard

show memorycard


Displays whether a compact flash card or USB 2.0 storage device is present in the switch.

Syntax Description

This command has no arguments or variables.



Usage Guidelines



This command shows whether a removable storage device is present on the switch:

show memorycard

If you do not have a removable storage device installed, the output is similar to the following:

Memorycard is not present.

On the BlackDiamond X8 switch, there are two USB ports, and so the command indicates which port is being used:

BD-X8.1 # show memorycard
Memorycard is present in USB-1.


This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 11.0.

Support for USB 2.0 storage devices was added in ExtremeXOS 12.5.3.

Platform Availability

This command is available on BlackDiamond X8 and 8800 series switches and Summit X460, X480, X670, X670V, and X770 switches.
