Hello - I purchased my Lennar home in April 2020, and have an ICX7150-C12P switch that recently wasn't booting and I needed to reset. It seems to be working now, but when I was reading various forums trying to troubleshoot, I did notice recommendations to update firmware on the switch.
When my switch finally restarted after the rest, I was able to use the Unleashed app to check and update firmware but I think that's only for the R510 access points? When I attempt to login to the switch by going to its IP address in my web browser and using what I thought was the correct login and password, it's not working.
Should this login (directly to the switch's IP address) use the same credentials as used in the Unleashed app? If not, how would I find out what the correct login info is? (I thought perhaps due to the reset the login reverted to the original provided by Lennar, but that didn't work either).
Alternatively, is there another way to see which firmware version is on my switch and update it, without needing a cable (which the installer didn't leave here) or messing around with a command-line? Thanks
The unit is stuck in boot mode, as the factory reset has been performed and the switch is still unresponsive, the only option will be software recovery, now with the cable issue, the normal C/USB type cable that the Android phone uses to charge will work as long as it passes data, which basically all of them do, now with the code you can use anyone; however, during software recovery; the printenv command that must be run as part of the troubleshooting steps can confirm the code you have, so we advise using the same code or a higher code but without using the UFI image because we must put the image and boot separately, finally to avoid this problem in the future it is advised when finishing the software recovery, perform an upgrade to the recommended 08095g UFI code in both partitions with the switching image SPS0809595fufi.bin

I have the ethernet cable and the console cable plugged in, installed the Mac driver from Silas Labs (the installer said it was successful), and have connected to the ICX's command line interface in Terminal.
The CLI commands are exactly the same, from the Switch perspective; however, the MAC computer does not require any external application to transfer files via TFTP because it is already integrated, now all the configuration is through the terminal using Linux commands, this is the reason most customers prefer to use a Windows computer, instead of running more commands from the terminal just to configure the TFTP, let me add the commands with a brief explanation and a video tutorial.
2:From finder, type /private/tftpboot commands to paste the files for image and boot of the Switch: /private/tftpboot
3:From Terminal: type the next command to set up the TFTP and start it:
sudo launchctl load -F /System/Library/LauchDaemons/tftp.plist (Begging the Launch of TFTP) sudo launchctl start com.apple.tftpd (Start the TFTP) netstat -atp UDP | grep tftp (confirm if the TFTP is transferring files, however will be appeared after you start the TFTP transfer from the Switch) sudo chmond 777 /private/tftpboot (here you provide permission to the file TFTP boot) sudo chmond 777 /private/tftpboot/* (here you provide permission to the files in TFTP boot)
I don't see my earlier reply here (I thought it was posted on 12/26/2022) but I wanted to say thank you for the detailed Mac support since I don't have access to and never use a Windows PC. I was able to do the software recovery on my switch and it's working now, thanks to your help!
You had mentioned earlier that once the recovery worked, I should go ahead and upgrade to the recommended firmware "08095g UFI code in both partitions with the switching image SPS0809595fufi.bin."
In some of the help docs (like here) it mentions that sometimes a switch needs to be upgraded with a transition version of 08080f.
In my switch right now when I looked at the version on the primary and secondary partition I see:
There is no need to pass for the transition version named 08080f, because you are already in a higher version(08090k), now when you perform the upgrade you can do it twice or just copy what is in your primary to the secondary, I will add an example of the commands, now take into consideration you will use the file named SPS08095gufi.bin, which contains all you require, so that will be the only file you need.
