CSS610-8G-2S+ Management Access from SFP+ Port

Wed Oct 21, 2020 6:21 pm

Hey everyone,

I recently got my CSS610-8G-2S+ switch and its running great so far.

Yesterday I connected my servers via SFP+ RJ45 modules and removed their 1G links but after doing that, I could no longer the management website of the switch from the servers. If I move the cable to a normal RJ45 Port it works again. I also checked port isolation, nothing configured there and the "Allow from Ports" setting in the general tab, but all is default there - access to management from every port. A reset to default etc. didn't change the problem. My CSS610-8G-2S+ is running 2.12rc2.

Can anyone of you, also owning that switch, try if you have the same issue?

thanks

Hello
Same issue

I contacted technical support:
Description:
Problem: It is not possible comunicate with device CSS610-8G-2S+ through
SFP+ ports (I,II) [Mikrotik S+RJ10 /r2]. Web interface is inaccesible, PING to
device failed, (DHCP lease failed) and static IP on the device do the same.
Standard 1G ports 1-8 works correctly (DHCP/PING/WEB). Switching between
ports 1-8 / SFP+ I,II (vice versa) always working well.


Answer SUP-30842 :
Hello,

Thank you for the report!

We have managed to reproduce the issue locally in our labs and look forward to fixing it on upcoming SwOS versions, unfortunately, I cannot comment on the version availability.

I have this problem too. It's good to know that Mikrotik Support will be working on it. I have yet seen that many people report a problem with the vlan configuration, I haven't tried it yet, I will wait for the new SwOS, maybe there will be less nerves.

I can also confirm this problem. I just plugged in two identical CSS610-8G-2S+ switches, connected them via SPF+. I can access both of their web interfaces through RJ45 port, but not with SFP+ port.

It is not just the management interface. It seems that DCHP client is also affected. On the DHCP server side I see that address was "offered" to the switch, but the switch is not bound to the offered address.

Well, I bought these units for a concrete installation, and now I'm not able to use them. I have a deadline. Since they cannot tell when it will be fixed, I have to use something else.

When I bought them, I did not know that web management and DHCP client won't work on SPF+ port. It also turned out the VLAN is not working normally.

Are these covered by the manufacturer's warranty?

Bump. Same with CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+ and RB4011iGS+RM

When connected via SFP+ it works pretty much like unmanaged switch. And only in DHCP mode.

Configurations tested:

All configurations assume default router config with IP changed to 10.0.1.1 and DHCP address space to 10.0.1.101 - 10.0.1.254. Client IP set to 10.0.1.50 manual.

Case 1: Switch configured to "Static only" with IP: 10.0.1.100. Switch connected to Router vis SFP+
- switch can be accessed when client plugged into switch
- router (10.0.1.1) can't be accessed from client when client plugged into switch
- switch can't be accessed via IP address when client plugged into router
- resources connected to router are NOT accessible from client, connected to switch
- resources connected to switch are NOT accessible from client, connected to router


Case 2: Switch configured with "DHCP only" or "DHCP with fallback". Switch connected to Router vis SFP+
- switch can NOT be accessed when client plugged into switch
- router can be accessed when client plugged into switch
- switch can NOT be accessed when client plugged into router
- router can be accessed when client plugged into router
- resources connected to router are accessible from client, connected to switch
- resources connected to switch are accessible from client, connected to router

Case 3: Any switch configuration. Switch connected to router via ethernet
- both admin UIs are accessible when client connected to either box
- all resources are available when client connected to either box

return them so Mikrotik support will learn what you get when someone submits a very annoying (and easy to fix) bug and their answer is "NO ETA"

In the last 10 Years we spend in MKT devices more than € 250,000. Sometimes we had some problems but never something as obvious as this. Aswell we work with Huawei, Ruckus, Netgear, Mimosa, Silvus.... I don't normally buy switches from MKT and now I know I did it right.

It think is a big issue... If do you have 33 units in a ring using the SFP+ ports and you can not manage it.

Guys, seriously? This is NEW product. Not really tested by earth and fire. If you're planning a commercial install based on an untested product - it's not MKT problem, it's your risk management. Go check Cisco forums for new products they release. Give folks some slack.

Again, you wanted a cool shiny new thingie? Wanna pay a fraction of what you'd pay for Cisco? Be ready to deal with early adopter issues.

To Mikrotik team - you guys are doing great, keep pushing.

And maybe after you resolve this you could think of replacing "G" with "P" in this product name? Having PoE+ for this switch will truly make it THE instant classic :)

you missed the point completely
bugs do exist, in any product, new or not new.
what we are criticizing is support's answer to the request to fix a bug which should be trivial to fix
for these, Cisco used to deliver us custom builds back then when I was a customer.

Totally agree. As you say, sometimes there are bugs. The strange thing is this type of error and the support that MKT provides. It's so strange that they didn't test it before launching it. On a managed switch I think this is the first point to check because... Do you want to be able to manage it? LOL.

This is like selling a car that has no wheels. We may classify this problem as a "software bug". But this is an obvious fault, and the product could never work with the simplest configuration.

Below you can download the SwOS 2.13rc5 version for the CSS610-8G-2S+ device:
https://box.mikrotik.com/f/2d3d33561426401a8697/?dl=1

And for the netPower Lite 7R (CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+) device:
https://box.mikrotik.com/f/089b908aede040b099c8/?dl=1

It should improve the management connectivity for the SFP+ interfaces. Other fixes and improvements are coming, but I cannot comment when the stable version will be released.

You're not wrong. Just got 2 of these and the main thing people will use the SFP's for is to do 10G back-haul to a main switch not testing that management access works over the SFP is pretty poor

I know and understand it's the rc5 version, but here are my observations

  • device unstable response (ICMP)
+
  • lazy web interface (often you need to refresh the page to retrieve tab content)

Just for the record, Mikrotik introduced SwOS Lite

Has anyone with some electronics knowledge tried to open the CRS318-16P-2S+OUT to see inside if its PoE-out ports could be modded for use as PoE-in?
It's more expensive but runs proper RouterOS and just works, power consumption could be an issue though (would probably need 48V PoE-in).

I've done a similar mod for 24V reverse-PoE-in on a much smaller device (OmnitikUPA - old one with 802.11n and 10/100 ports), it was just adding 4 diodes (used 2 dual schottky diodes in isolated TO220, anodes to pins 4,5 of each port 2-5, common cathode to "+" of DC input jack - which becomes an output in case you need to power something non-PoE, I haven't used it).
PoE-out ports 2-5 have diodes in series, so simply applying power (without the mod) does nothing (no current flow, no damage).
Ports used as PoE-in must be set to PoE-out "off" of course - in my case ports 1-4 are used as PoE-in and port 5 as PoE-out powering the uplink radio.

r5 definitely allows access over SFP however the switch doesn't seem to be able to re-negotiate lower link speeds with copper 10G Mikrotik SFP modules. I have these renegotiating fine between a Mikrotik RouterOS device to a Zyxel XGS switch where they will happily renegotiate at 2.5G or 5G if the cable or length is not good enough but the CCS610 only want to do 10G or nothing. It looks like there are quite a few bugs left in SwitchOS to fix....

Hello
on a css610 I configured port 1 in the lab as a trunk with 5 vlans and I configured 5 access ports on each vlan - on port 1 I connected a mikrotik router which delivers me the vlan and the associated dhcps - I can't get the vlans to transit - I followed the procedure step by step I don't see where the problem is - can you help me
I checked with a sw cisco that the router was correctly configured it's correct - my problem is of course on the css

Thanks for providing us with further RC candidates.

I've got 8 units now, and just was notified that my backorder of 20 units from Baltic Networks has shipped.
So I'm coming to the point where I would like to have a known good release version soon!

However, It doesn't seem to be taking on my unit running 2.12rc2. It doesn't give me any errors, it just briefly says upgrading, then the page automatically refreshes and nothing happens or upgrades. Thanks.

Same case for me. Shutting it off and powering back helped solving this issue. Also, make sure you use firmware for your specific device. I.e. CSS610-8G-2S+ and CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+ are not cross-compatible.

I upgraded to rc5 and I still can't manage with the SFP+ port active. I have to unplug the fiber from the SFP and plug in the cat 6. Very frustrating. DHCP still doesn't work very well either.

I've rarely worked with mikrotik devices, but I just bought 3 of these and upon tinkering, I found this same problem. I'm glad it's already being worked on. Unlike many of you, I don't have any deadline and this is more of a learning project, but it would have nonethelessly bothered me to have to setup another port for management. Just wanted to thank you people who already have complained to Mikrotik about the problem.

Re: CSS610-8G-2S+ Management Access from SFP+ Port

Below you can download the SwOS 2.13rc5 version for the CSS610-8G-2S+ device:
https://box.mikrotik.com/f/2d3d33561426401a8697/?dl=1

And for the netPower Lite 7R (CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+) device:
https://box.mikrotik.com/f/089b908aede040b099c8/?dl=1

It should improve the management connectivity for the SFP+ interfaces. Other fixes and improvements are coming, but I cannot comment when the stable version will be released.
Is there any movement on a release version that fixes the various bugs - I have a couple of these that I would like to deploy but until the major bug(s) like management access over SFP are fixed they're not really a viable option as everyone wants to do 10G segment back haul. rc5 seems to occasionally work over SFP but then mainly not. At the moment the only way I can manage the device is by having a Raspberry Pi in a LAN port and doing an SSH port forward to the switch. It's weird as it looks like traffic switching works fine but management traffic routing seems really broken.

I guess you have to be very patient ... I have the same problem, but the support's answer does not show that it quickly solves the problem definitively.
Recently, there are many problems with the new MikroTik models.

Waiting for the updated firmware, too. I have a few netPower 7R switches which I'm waiting until fixed to install.
Firmware upgrade of a reverse-PoE switch should not need a power cycle. With redundant power from a few customers, it's difficult to ask all of them to power-cycle their PoE at the same time - or ask the electric power company to power-cycle the whole area ;)
Perhaps such devices should have some independent way to remotely power-cycle - just a thought, use a cheap esp8266 wifi-controlled relay module?

Looks like VLANs are still totally broken with 2.13rc5 firmware. Makes this unusable for us in production. While I get this is a new product, switches are not new to Mikrotik and having a switch product leave the production line with no VLAN support at all is ridiculous. That is not a new product bug, that is rushing something out the door when you know it has limitations but not mentioning that in any documentation. I would never expect a Mikrotik product to arrive without a basic feature like VLAN support in a switch not working.

Well said, likewise I also realise it's a new product but releasing something with release candidate firmware with so many bugs is just not on.

Mikrotik this device is unusable for production environments and we have been waiting weeks for some release firmware to fix the issues - why the delay?

various bugs on getting basic functionallity ... for example setting the MANAGEMENT VLAN and handling a "hybrid config" on the 2 SFP+ ports so tagged AND untagged (native) traffic is handled correctly. working on the 8 ethernet interfaces but not on the SFP+ ports

it would be a perfect replacement for some overprived cisco and HP switches but only if basic VLAN performance is given!
sadly disappointed with this incestment :-(

It is not just the management interface. It seems that DCHP client is also affected. On the DHCP server side I see that address was "offered" to the switch, but the switch is not bound to the offered address.
same issue observed here. DHCP server is a routerboard 922
also it is not possible to configure these ports to handle tagged traffic (trunk) and also untagged traffic (native/pvid) at the same time.
which, in the cisco world, would look like something like
interface Te1/0/1
  switchport mode trunk
  switchport trunk native vlan 10
  switchport trunk allowed vlans 10,20,30
  spanning-tree port type edge
--> which leaves TAGGED frames unchanged in their respected VLANs (egress + ingress) and all UNTAGGED frames would go to VLAN10 ingress and UNTAGGED egress! one hell of a basic VLAN configuration

also i would like to FINALLY have SSH access to SwOS! please mikrotik, let this happen!

Bad things happen at MikroTik, a product released for sale without a basic functional check. It is a great shame ... and even bigger is a long wait for a correction.

They are selling "beta" hardware and we are still paying a lot of money to test everything for them !!!

Agreed, the LONG wait makes it that much worse. This is going on 3+ months now right? How hard is it to fix basic VLAN functionailty? I wonder if its some core hardware issue. If thats the case, why are they still selling it? If not, and giving the development team the benefit of the doubt, its a allocation of resources issue. This switch is very far down on there priority list. Which is shame.

As far as im aware, the Netpower 7R is the only switch of its kind. I need something ASAP. Anyone know of another switch that can do reverse POE with gigabit ports??

If 10Gb not required (just 2x 1Gb SFP, 7x gigabit PoE-in, 1x gigabit PoE-out), there are no-name Chinese boards you can put in your own box.
I have been using these after Netpower series was announced by MT, but I got tired of waiting for its real avaiability (a year later, only 10/100 ports)
Pros: working reverse-PoE gigabit switch with standard VLAN functionality
Cons: you have to roll your own weatherproof box (doesn't look as nice), import from China (long wait, no invoice), probably no future firmware updates

Another option (where you also need to roll your own box), with more SFP ports: CRS112-8P-4S-IN should be easy to modify for reverse-PoE (solder a few diodes on the separate PoE board)

Accessing admin via sfp on 2.13rc5 usually doesn’t work for me. I gave up on it and I vpn to edge router to access it. Or connect physically to eth ports.

I’ve got my vlans working however.

I loaded a CSS610-1G-7R-2S+, and a CSS610-8G-2S+ with the 2.13.rc5 SWOS (respectively).

I STILL cannot get it to pick up a management IP via VLAN.
It just picks up the regular vlan1 DHCP assigned ID and I can access it from any port.

I have management subnet on VLAN 400 handed out by DHCP.
If it go in to the CSS interface and change Allow from VLAN and put 400 in there, it appears to do absolutely nothing.

I added VLAN 400 to the VLANs tab with defaults all members, and STILL gets vlan1 dhcp IP, not management 400 IP.

Is there something else I need to be doing??

Or is this still broken in this RC5 version??

Nice, thanks for the heads up!! Thats all I really need!

EDIT: Just stumbled upon below support response from another thread. Got my VLANs working now
First, try to disable the "Add Information Option" under the System menu.
For access or untagged ports, use "VLAN Mode = optional", "VLAN Receive = only untagged" and specify the "Default VLAN ID". For the trunk or tagged ports, use "VLAN Mode = strict", "VLAN Receive = only tagged". And make sure to include all the necessary member ports for each VLAN ID under the VLANs menu.
[...]
The wiki manuals will get updated, thank you for pointing this out. We are still working on a new SwOS version for CSS610 devices, but I cannot predict when this version will be available.

Great... I guess we'll sit on our inventory of 40+ units until they pull their heads out of their ass(es) collectively speaking.

I mean really, sending out a product without a viable config solution that is their "standard"?

Who ISN'T programming these on a management VLAN separate from the main/customer default vlan??

I upgraded to rc5 and I still can't manage with the SFP+ port active. I have to unplug the fiber from the SFP and plug in the cat 6. Very frustrating. DHCP still doesn't work very well either.
same here. rc5 did not fix the problem for me.

There is the link they sent me for RC6. I guess if they object to this, they can delete this post. Since it is from their servers and they willingly sent me the link, I hope it is OK to put it here. I guess I should state this is a release candidate, not a stable firmware and is for testing only.

Best regards,

G:Hello O,
Any idea when this will happen?

O:Hello,
Unfortunately, we do not have ETD for this. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
Best regards,
O.

From what I learned I will not buy or recommend any Mikrotik device when it is realeased prior to checking forums for bugs reported by the end users.
Feels like early access game. And that is a damn shame.

We have created a new testing version (rc6) which addresses some of the VLAN related problems, but the management connection from the SFP+ port is still being investigated. In some cases, it might help if you disable the RSTP on SFP+ ports and reboot the switch, but make sure there is no L2 loop on these ports. Let us know the results.

As for the VLANs, I would suggest trying these settings:
- Disable the "Add Information Option" under the System menu
- For access or untagged ports, use "VLAN Mode = optional", "VLAN Receive = only untagged" and specify the "Default VLAN ID".
- For the trunk or tagged ports, use "VLAN Mode = strict", "VLAN Receive = only tagged".
- Make sure to include all the necessary member ports for each VLAN ID under the VLANs menu.

In case you are using tagged VLAN for the device management, I would also recommend using a static IP configuration:
- Set "Address Acquisition = static" and configure "Static IP Address = x.x.x.x".

The rc6 version still contains some VLAN issues (e.g. when using "Allow From VLAN" or enabling "Add Information Option" in the System menu), so I would first suggest trying the above configuration. If you are still interested in upgrading, below are the latest testing versions:
for CSS610-8G-2S+ https://box.mikrotik.com/f/5daa1f8f216a4045b776/?dl=1
for CSS610-1Gi-7R-2S+ https://box.mikrotik.com/f/a72e315282d149eda481/?dl=1

But it works for devices attached to them- untagged traffic, so does the minimum required.

I observed the same behavior:

Communication via VLANs basically works with 2.13rc6 but DHCP does not work. The Clients do not get IP-Addresses via VLAN.

In my case I cascaded (topology doesn't allow any other solution) two MikroTik devices: CRS326 and CSS610.

When I connect to the CRS326 directly, VLANs work fine an I get an IP address from the DHCP server. But with the CSS610 that's not the case. Static IPs work as expected for me.

@EdPa Can you guys look into this as well? I'm quite confident, that this is no configuration issue, but rather a firmware issue as I have installed over 200 Mikrotik devices in 2020 an many of them run VLANs 24/7. I can reproduce the behavior with all 5 CSS610 devices I have at our lab.

Sun Jan 17, 2021 11:23 pm

Hello,

I'd like to share my experience with CSS610-8G-2S+.

I managed to make vlan + ipv4 dhcp + management access from sfp+ working.

Maybe it's not the best solution for you, but with DAC cable on sfp+ (with vlan trunk) magagement works great, with the RC5 firmware, and without disabling RSTP.
Obviously with a 10GB base T module (with vlan trunk), it's not as great, but it also works by disabling RSTP on the port as you already know.

With a 10GB base T module without vlan it works great without disabling RSTP.

About VLAN, myc conf is close to what EdPa explained on "Tue Jan 12, 2021 1:29 pm", but it works for me with RC5 firmware.
I have multiple VLANs with one DHCP server per VLAN and every client gets its IPv4 from the correct DHCP.

You obviously have to disable "Add Information Option" and check trusted ports to make it works (and have a static IP for the Switch is better).

I didn't test the RC6 firmware yet as everything works for me.

I 'll wait for a stable version.

Hi,
I switched to Mikrotik product last month with 3 CSS610-8G-2S+ and 1 CRS309-1G-8S+
First tests with SFP+ and copper network. It worked great.
When I switched to fiber as planned ... Inaccessible switches. Outch !
While searching, I discovered this thread.

Support response today with a new RC version of the firmware I passed :
Please upgrade CSS610 to SwOS Lite v2.13rc10 from the link and check if previously experienced problems remain.
https://box.mikrotik.com/f/9c2a7656ab554dd397e1/?dl=1
As seen in previous posts, I hope not to upset Mikrotik by giving this link. I think it's useful to the community!

The switches are correctly viewed, accessible for management by SFP+ fiber (MikroTik S+85DLC03D) Great !
No special modification for RSTP.
I am not using VLAN. I couldn't make any returns. I know there are quite a few worries too!
It is worth testing it for those who are in wait.

Is it better for you too?

as this is now advertised here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xh3oQKcMOmg

I hope, things get leveled up in priority.

@EdPa
BTW: Genius move to connect the metal housing on the bottom for cooling. My RJ45 transrecievers are getting way better temps than in my css326-24g-2s+rm

Will this model (css326-24g-2s+rm) be updated with the same cooling trick? I had a LOT of trouble with using RJ45 transrecievers of various brands with this particular model. I know this is not advertised or recommended and no longer use any RJ45 trans with it. But with the CSS610-8G-2S+ that works remarkably well!

I think many people would be more than happy to pay extra for this feature

If you check this Youtuber's comments, you'll see that he encountered the same issues. More details in his web.

This appears to have been pulled - shame as it sounds like it fixed some of the major bugs - this is getting beyond ridiculous the time we've had to wait for working software.

I just picked up the CSS610-8G-2S+ and could not get the SFP+ ports using DAC to connect at all with 2.12.
Installed the new 2.13rc12 and it is now working properly.

2.13rc12
  • access/managing through SFP+ ports >> looks OK
  • RSTP on SFP+ >> looks OK
  • VLAN and DHCP >> looks OK
  • LAG (LACP) shows MAC address again and seems more stable
Its looks promising

2.13rc12
I have new problem now.
When I change port name and save I am loosing connection on some ports. It happens every time for me.
I need to completely reboot the switch to recover operation. Switching information option off doesn’t change anything.
Tested like 5 times and happened each time.
Sfp seem to work however as I am able to reach switch from there but eth ports seems to be down.
Surely connection to router is down (eth1 with poe, trunk port) as I cannot reach the switch from there when it happens and my internet is completely down.

Can anybody test their switches to confirm if this is my case only?

I seem to get the DHCP on VLANs working as well but it takes too much time (60s) and in some cases I am not getting IP at all.

Thanks nannou9 and AvAxxCZ, it will be fixed in the next versions. For now, avoid changing the "Name" setting on the Link page when running the 2.13rc12 version.

2.13rc12
One more minor issue noticed:
MikroTik discovery doesn’t seem to work anymore.
Can’t discover devices behind the switch. I am pretty sure this was working previously. Switch itself is discoverable however. My other devices are on trunk port eth1 with poe.
Connections however still works if I put address manually, so as said: minor issue.

Thanks to MikroTik team for all improvements over last weeks.

  • Assign a new IP to the Swtich via DHCP wont work
  • Setting the Hostname/Identity wont work
  • Reset to factory settings should ask beforehand if you really want to do this
  • SNMP doesnt show LAG/Trunk Interfaces
I can't understand how a product can be released like this. At least the Rlease candidates bring improvement. Unfortunately they are not linked on the download page.

I've tested this one for a few hours, but I was having a huge packet loss via one of the SPF+ ports using an S+RJ10 module to 2.5G NIC, reverted back to rc5, as rc6 was way worse.

I had temporarily more than 90% pocket loss too.
Not sure why tbh and what is worse not sure why it went away as I did many things at a time after which it suddenly went away and never happened again.
Try some silly things like resetting your switch to factory settings for example or power cycle it. I was power cycling even devices connected to it.
Anyway, never observed it again regardless of config change.

Plugging in a SFP+ needs a reboot of the switch
