Console access on Dell switches

11 06 2012

As much as I’d prefer for them to be Cisco, some of the switches in HQ are Dell Managed switches. I’ve not really had much experience with them, but as we’re stuck with them for at least another 6 months, I thought I’d take a look, see if I could learn something about them.
First thing that struck me is how similar the command language is – admittedly it’s not as polished though! I’ll post further observations once I get a chance to have a proper look, just wanted to note that a null model cable is required as a console cable – I spent £10 on one from Maplins, as I was in a hurry, but they’re available much cheaper on Amazon.
