Download the latest SmartFabric OS10 operating system.
Before we upgrade SmartFabric OS10 operating system on our switches we need to get the latest compatible OS10 version. The latest version of SmartFabric OS10 Enterprise Edition software is located on the Force10 Networks portal here. If you plan to upgrade SmartFabric OS10 with VxRail then you should consult the guide here.

Note that I was rebuilding a new SmartFabric VxRail cluster so I did not want to retain the existing switch configuration. I wanted to demonstrate installing VxRail and SmartFabric using the automated deployment on the latest hardware. By using the sfs_disable.py script – I am destroying the configuration of the existing switch.

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:
#1) Respect the privacy of others. #2) Think before you type. #3) With great power comes great responsibility.
Turning on SmartFabric Services will reset the switch and erase any existing network configuration.
In SmartFabric Mode, users can only configure a limited system level settings manually. All network configuration will be driven by SmartFabric Services.
