I bought a CRS326-24S+2Q+ thinking I was getting a nice switch that I would be able to work with. All I want to be able to do is layer 2 switching and have future expand ability. It's turned into a huge nightmare and I probably have about a dozen hours into troubleshooting and have gotten no where.
The network is a pfSense router, the CRS326-24S+2Q+, and 2 Unifi 24 port switches. I have ESXi hosts that I want to route and have access to storage over 10 gig. If I go pfSense > CRS326-24S+2Q+ > Unifi > ESXi things work, but if i go pfSense > CRS326-24S+2Q+ > ESXi everything breaks. ESXi VMs are not able to reach pfSense and I permanently loose access to the CRS326-24S+2Q+ management page.
I tried resetting the switch, and still couldn't access the management page. I was told to do a net install, and I still couldn't access the management page. I had to connect with a console cable to reset the switch before I could access the management page again. I then did the minimum config to get the switch routing traffic thinking I may have messed something up in the config, but after trying to fire up a VM connected to the CRS326-24S+2Q+ I'm right back to not being able to access the management page of the switch again.
I'm trying to do this in SwitchOS 2.12 and am coming into the switch from pfSense on a trunk port and going out to ESXi on a trunk port. Am I missing something here, or this thing a steaming pile of garbage?
