Can SwOS be upgraded to RouterOS

Thu Jan 24, 2019 9:17 am

I have a CSS326-24G, and one extra RouterOS license.
Can it be upgraded to RouterOS (and how)?
Will this void any warranty?
And most importantly, is there any recommendations against the upgrade?

Thanks

There is a setting in the swOS web admin to boot to RouterOS. I can't recall exactly where it is but it is there as I used it on my CRS328.

License should be there automatically so you won't need to install one. It shouldn't void your warranty either.

I would recommend changing from SwOS to RouterOS. I have had nothing but problems with SwOS. Particularly issues with fans not working at all or spinning all the time and huge issues with buffer overruns. All of which seem to have been resolved by changing to RouterOS.

However, VLANS in RouterOS are still a pain to configure.

He is using CSS326 so there is no ROS support.

Even RB260GSP or CSS326 and all CSS versions are SwOS only! They don't support RouterOS and there is no support for it!

Fortunately, this wasn't a deal breaker for me.
