My ICX 7150-C12P seems to be stuck in boot mode (amber system light). When I connect to the switch via port 15 I am not seeing a com port in my device manager. When I connect to port 13, I get a green light on my adapter and the switch port (so I know the cable and connections on both ends are good). I even tried using MobaXterm to get it to automatically recognize the COM port, but it is coming up empty.
I am on Windows 10 Pro. I turned off Windows defender to check to see if that was limiting the connectivity. What else do I need to check so that i can get the switch to boot, and/or do a software recovery?
yes it is a Lennar unit. the instructions on the specify you can connect to port 1 (USB Type C) or port 15 ethernet depending on the cable you have (it also said if you have to do a software recovery that is done via port 13 which is just ethernet (RJ45 I guess)). I ordered a USB ethernet adapter for this.
Good news I have been able to establish connectivity between my laptop and the 7150 switch. I am attempting to do the software recovery. I have configured my ethernet adapter to be a static IP per the instructions (and verified via ipconfig). I have also set the env parameters on the switch and verified via printenv.
The challenge I face now is that i cannot ping my laptop from the switch. Are there reasons why it might not be able to ping? Here is the printenv from my 7150 switch. Please advise
