ExtremeXOS Images for Summit X480 Series Switches
Due to additional functionality and new platforms supported, the ExtremeXOS 15.6 and later software image is too large to download onto the Summit X480 series switches. To resolve this issue, Summit X480 series switches now have two separate software image files used for both individual switches and stacks that include Summit X480 series switches.
|Main Install image||Diagnostic image|
|Content||All Summit X480 content (except diagnostics)||Summit X480 diagnostics|
|File Type||Standard ExtremeXOS image||XMOD image|
||To update to a newer version of the diagnostics, download and install the latest XMOD version. The diagnostics XMOD can be installed to the active or standby partition and diagnostics can be used immediately. There is no need to reboot or execute any other action to complete the installation.|
The following scenarios produces an error or warning message:
- Attempting to run the diagnostic command without the diagnostic image installed.
- Not having the diagnostic image installed on a Summit X480 series switch or slot (when system initializes).
- Installing the main Summit X480 image without the diagnostics image present.
- Installing the general Summit image (summitX-16.2.xx.yy.xos, rather than the Summit X480-specific image) on a Summit X480 series switch.
NoteIf Summit X480 series switches require rescue recovery, you can use the summitX-16.2.xx.yy.xos file image, and this image installs the diagnostics capability.
