TNR vs TNS

I'm updating the firmware on several different model of ICX switches that I have, but I'm running into a bit of confusion. For the ICX7650-48p, the recommended firmware is the 08.0.95g ufi version, but the zip file contains both a TNR08095gufi.bin and a TNS08095gufi.bin file. I can't find anything in the release notes that specifies a difference between these two versions. Is there a difference? What situations would call for either version being applied over the other?

Hi @kk1313 

Basically the TNS the third letter means Switching code the TNmeans routing code 

Switching guide :

Routing guide :

https://support.ruckuswireless.com/documents/3458-fastiron-08-0-95-ga-layer-3-routing-configuration-...

As we can see, the routing code allows us some features like create VEs/ip routes/ Routing protocols etc...

To check what code you are actually running we can check with a 'show version'

This is a ICX-7150 so the terminology is SP and not TN like your case that is ICX-7650

As we can see in the example that switch is running SP 'S' that means that is running switching code.

In this case we have SP 'R' that means that is running routing code 

I hope it helps

TNS denotes switching (layer 2 only) image while TNR denotes routing (layer2+layer3) image. You can check 'show version' to see what you are running now. Hope that helps!
