When I try to add an IP address (IP Address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx) I get invalid command for Address.
Looking in the menu of the IP command, there is no Address command listed.
How can I add an IP Address if there's not Address command?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Here’s the whole story.
I wanted to upgrade my switch to the latest firmware but the current firmware was too old.
So I upgraded the firmware on an ICX 7150 from 08.0.61cT211 to 08.0.90jT213. See below.
After the upgrade completed, all the IP information was gone. IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, DNS.
I tried to add it by entering the IP command and this is what I get.
When I look at the IP menu, the Address command is not listed. See below.
Why did the upgrade strip the IP info and how do I add it back?
It looks like you likely switched from switching code (allows a single global IP address) to routing code (where you address VEs or interfaces). Notice the code you are running now is SPR08090jufi.bin ('show flash' to check). The SPR denotes routing code. There is also a switching image which would have a name such as SPS08090jufi.bin (SPS denotes switching). What likely happened is you switched from an SPS image to an SPR image. The global IP address command is not valid in SPR image, therefore it failed to parse at bootup and the command is not available. To get yourself back up and running, you can do something like this:
int management 1
ip address <address> <subnet-mask>
You can then connect a laptop/computer to the mgmt port to gain connectivity and copy over the switching image (assuming that is what you want to run). Just make sure it is on the same subnet as what you configured. If you need any help with this, please feel free to open a support case (see my signature).
