Have noticed the other day that there was anew software version (1.7) for the SWOS and decided to upgrade one of my production switches.
The switch was configured as independent vlans on ports 2-5, trunked to port 1.
I have noticed the VLANS tab was changed layout wise, and in the new layout the values were either missing or all messed up.
After changing them to something that seemed right to me, rebooted the switch and that was it. Management interface is gone. Switch is now basically a dumb switch.
Tried resetting with front switch , top pcb reset pads, bottom reset pads, nothing. Dead.
Since this was out of warranty, I have ordered a 260GS to replace it.
260 came with 1.7, and i did not reload a backup config on it. Instead did all settings from scratch. Did not reboot it until all settings in each tab were entered and applied.
Rebooted aaaand it's gone.
Now i got two bricks.
Did anyone really bothered to test the 1.7 release thoroughly ??
Anyone else had this issues ? I can't be the only one that has bricked two switches like this...
