Returns a description, something like ’ Description: Spectrum™ based 10GbE/100GbE 1U Open Ethernet switch with MLNX-OS; 18 SFP28 ports; 4 QSFP28 ports; 2 power supplies (AC); x86 dual core; Short depth; P2C airflow; Rail Kit; RoHS6’
If you swap the fan direction and change the OS, can you update this somehow?
Changing the fan direction is not supported in the field. If you require changing the fan direction you’ll need to speak with whoever sold you the switch to exchange it.
For the description change part of your question, this may require a more in-depth investigation and is better suited for a support case.
Hi. It looks like a simple text field. Can it be updated?
I already swapped the fan direction and changed the OS. Not a big deal, just cosmetic, but would be nice.
I looked into this and didn’t see an easy way to change it. This will require a more in-depth investigation and is better suited for a support case.
Starting to feel like the solution to all things is not create a support case.
Hi - just an FYI. changing the text description of the Switch FW ini file will not change any thing related to FAN direction.
the fan direction is determined by the PSU and FAn units - it has different PNs for read and forward air flow
Hi, thanks - yeah, I gave up on this idea. Seems there are ways to change the PSID of the device, but this will probably not give me the description text I have in mind after my changes to the device.
