Feature Limitations

  • In V200R012C00SPC600, after an S5720LI stack or S5720SI stack has been set up, the stack can register with the cloud management platform. In V200R013C00 and later versions, after the switches that support cloud-based management establish a stack, the stack can register with the cloud management platform.
  • If an unconfigured switch runs in traditional management or cloud-based management mode and cannot obtain the controller IP address, the switch periodically sends registration packets to the registration center to obtain the controller IP address. You can access the console port and run the display work-mode command to check the switch operating mode:
    • If the switch is working in traditional mode, no action is required because the input on the console port stops the switch from sending registration packets to the registration center.
    • If the switch is working in cloud-based management mode, to prevent the switch from sending registration packets to the registration center, configure Option 148 on a DHCP server to enable the switch to obtain the controller IP address through the DHCP server or configure the controller IP address on the switch using a command or through the web system.
  • In cloud-based management mode, the user name and password configured through the web system or serial port are effective only before the switch registers with the cloud management platform. After the switch registers, the cloud management platform will deliver the user name and password to the switch, which will override the ones configured in other ways. The user name and password delivered from the cloud management platform are required for login to a cloud-managed switch as long as the switch has registered with the cloud management platform.

  • For the switch models (S5720LI, S5720S-LI, S5720I-6X-PWH-SI-AC, S5720I-10X-PWH-SI-AC, S5720I-12X-SI-AC, and S5720I-12X-PWH-SI-DC) that do not support real-time clock (RTC), whena traditional switch changes its management mode through the registration center, ensure that the system time of the switch is within the validity period of the PKI certificate. Otherwise, the switch cannot change its management mode.
  • For the switch models (S5720LI, S5720S-LI, S5720I-6X-PWH-SI-AC, S5720I-10X-PWH-SI-AC, S5720I-12X-SI-AC, and S5720I-12X-PWH-SI-DC) that do not support RTC, if the device system time is not within the PKI certificate validity period after the switch is changed to the cloud-based management mode, the system time is automatically set to the start time of the PKI certificate validity period so that the switch can register with the cloud management platform successfully. After the switch registers with the cloud management platform successfully, the cloud management platform changes the device system time to the correct time.
  • In V200R010C00 and V200R011C00, a switch working in cloud-based management mode does not have a configuration file. Service configurations delivered from the cloud management platform are saved in a specific database of the platform. If a configuration file is loaded to the switch through misoperations, for example, using the BootROM menu, the switch will return to the traditional mode after a restart.

  • In versions earlier than V200R011C10, it is not allowed to change a stacked switch to the cloud-based management mode. In V200R011C10 and later versions, it is allowed to change a stacked switch to the cloud-based management mode. Therefore, in versions earlier than V200R011C10, if the current slot ID of a switch is not 0 or the current slot ID is 0 but the slot ID for the next startup is not 0, it is not allowed to change the switch to the cloud-based management mode.

  • In V200R011C10 and later versions, a switch working in cloud-based management mode has a configuration file. Service configurations delivered from the cloud management platform are saved to the configuration file of the switch. To ensure that the configurations recorded by the cloud management platform are consistent with those in the configuration file of the switch, do not specify a configuration file for the switch again, for example, using the BootROM menu to specify a new configuration file. Otherwise, the configurations in the existing configuration file of the switch may be lost.

  • After the switch is changed to the cloud-based management mode, a virtual management interface Meth0/0/2 will be automatically generated for the cloud management platform to locate faults on the switch. This interface has a fixed IP address configured. In versions earlier than V200R011C10, this fixed IP address is 192.168.2.1/30. In V200R011C10 and later versions, this fixed IP address is 169.254.2.1/30. After the switch is upgraded to V200R011C10 or later, this fixed IP address becomes 169.254.2.1/30.

  • After the switch is changed to the cloud-based management mode, in versions earlier than V200R011C10, the management IP address of the switch can only be dynamically allocated by the DHCP server. In V200R011C10 and later versions, this management IP address can be dynamically allocated by the DHCP server or use the IP address configured on a VLANIF interface used to communicate with the DHCP server.
  • If the IP address dynamically assigned by the DHCP server to the switch is on the network segment 192.168.1.0/24, the switch cannot register with the cloud management platform for authentication.

  • Since V200R012C00, the switch can auto-negotiate the PNP VLAN when working in cloud-based management mode. In this way, the switch can be plug-and-play in the cloud management solution.
  • After the switch is changed to the cloud-based management mode, pay attention to the following points:
    • The trust dscp command configuration will be automatically generated on all interfaces.
    • If an error occurs in the cloud-based management process of the switch, detailed error information of the process will be saved in the directory flash:/core_dump.

    • The switch is disconnected from and then reconnected to the controller during patch activation if the switch needs to have patches installed and the patch file contains the cloud management-related process patch of the .bin type.

    • In addition to the commands related to the cloud-based management configuration, the switch supports only some commands used in traditional management mode for fault location. Table 5-3 lists the commands supported in cloud-based management mode.
