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.

Table 1. Summit X480 Series Switches Software Image Files
Main Install image Diagnostic image
Content All Summit X480 content (except diagnostics) Summit X480 diagnostics
File Name summitX480-16.2.xx.yy.xos summitX480-16.2.xx.yy-diagnostics.xmod
File Type Standard ExtremeXOS image XMOD image
Installation Notes
  • Installing the main SummitX480 image over a previous release leaves the previous installation of the diagnostics image intact, as it is stored separately from the main ExtremeXOS image. You can continue to use the previously installed diagnostic version to run diagnostics.
  • Other Summit XMODs can be used with the Summit X480 main ExtremeXOS 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To update to a newer version of the diagnostics, download and install the latest XMOD version.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:



If 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.
