New ERS 5000 Software v6.6
« on: December 18, 2013, 12:51:47 AM »
Yep, it's here.  The long rumored ERS 5000 software v6.6 is available to download.  Some minor changes, some major changes.  So go through the readme document carefully!

Major changes:
- No more stacking ERS 5500 and ERS 5600 switches!  If you have a hybrid stack with both 55xx and 56xx switches, do not use this code!  Not sure is this will get fixed in the future, or is this here to stay.
- Out-of-band management is now active on 5600 switches!
- EDM inactivity timer can now be changed!

Readme is below:

The 6.6 Software releases support only the ERS5600 devices.
So we have no support for the ERS5510, 5520 and 5530.
Looks like the hardware inside of the ERS5500 is to old for the new features in 6.6.

Looks like that is the end after a decade of the ERS5500 switches.

I think this is the main reason for ERS5600 support only:
Release 6.6, the total number of ARP table entries is increased to 4,096
Itīs always the networks fault!
