New VSP 4000 Software v4.0
« on: June 02, 2014, 12:23:25 PM »
Looks like a brand new code release for you lucky VSP 4000 owners.  Software release v4.0 has a few new features and support for a new addition to the VSP 4000 family line.  There are several pages of fixes included, so read your release notes before use!  New features include:

- Media Access Control Security (MACsec)
- Service Level Agreement Monitor (SLA Mon)
- TACACS+
- Equal Cost MultiPath for Virtual routing and forwarding (ECMP)

And support for the new VSP 4450GSX-PWR+ hardware.  Also there is support for some new SFP's in there as well.  Apparently you can't just pull the plug on these units any longer and have to do a shutdown command before powering them off.  From the enabled prompt it's sys shutdown.  Upgrading from 3.0, 3.0.1 and 3.1 is supported.  Apparently it's a bad thing to have used VLAN 4060 and you will have to remove that VLAN from use before upgrading.

With a google search I found alredy a fact sheet for the new VSP4450GSX.

http://www.google.de/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&sqi=2&ved=0CCkQFjAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.avaya.com%2Fusa%2Fdocuments%2Fvirtual-services-platform-4000-uc7264.pdf&ei=8_KNU8v7KOTA7Aa8ooGICg&usg=AFQjCNFcfKSYBmfeLyQ0cEDkyNo5aWQdVQ&sig2=3xd2UdBGLZhB470RnJSILw&bvm=bv.68191837,d.bGE

Very interesting device , with the combination of MACSEC and SPB and
12-ports of 10/100/1000Base-T with PoE+ support
36 ports of 100/1000 Mbps SFP ports
2 ports of 1/10 Gig SFP+
of Ports.

I tested today, the sys shutdown command.

The VSP will shutdwon all ports and you get on the console after issuing the command
the output:
Power down.
System halted, OK to turn off power

But the actually power is still up and the ligths are all on.

Finally the SW code for Release 4.0.0.0 can be downloaded from the Avaya support homepage.

I already downloaded it and have a few VSP4450GSX to try it out on my desk.
