Firmware for SB7800 EDR Switch-IB 2 ?

Hi, I’m a bit confused as for why there is nothing firmware-wise for the SB7800 in the Mellanox’s downloads. I do see SB7890 as the only one in the family. PSID for the device is MT_2630110032 , and it’s nowhere to be found either.

Any ideas what’s this one about ? I’m on the support contract from DELL (that’s where the switches came from) and opened the SR, but thought that maybe would get to the bottom of this faster here…


Hello Karol,

Thank you for posting your inquiry on the NVIDIA Networking Community.

As you have a managed SB7800 switch, the latest MLNX-OS code for the switch is only available for contracted customer.

As you mentioned that you have this switch under contract with Dell they need and will provide you with the MLNX-OS code you are requesting.

Thank you and regards,

Thanks! However how do I differentiate in the future between what’s going to have FW available as it is with eg. SB7890 (as opposed to FW available only through MLNX-OS) ?

Is it so that managed switches are limited to FW via MLNX-OS only ?
