Hello everyone I state that I am new to these things. I have a problem with a force of s50 because I can not start it with the lan ports, the status panel shows me the green lights on "OK" and "PWR". I followed the procedures as described on the DELL website with the PUTTY program but without success. Can someone help me? Thank you in advance
Have you tried connecting with a console cable? Page 9 http://www.force10networks.com/CSPortal20/KnowledgeBase/DOCUMENTATION/InstallGuidesQuickrefs/S-Serie...
Was it working previously? It sounds like it might not be booting at all. When you connected the console cable did you reboot the switch to see if any of the boot process comes up?

Hi Josh Now I'll explain,
I bought this switch with freshman 6J8R9T1 from a seller on AMAZON about a year and a half ago,
it worked for about a month then I put it away for a year and now I need it but it does not work.
The STACK ID signals green LED on OK and green LED on AC.
The lan ports from 1 to 48 seem to connect but after a while they turn off and nothing happens,
the console lan any cable I insert with or without DB9 does not seem to work. I hope I was clear Thank you
It seems like it may be a hardware issue, but it is out of warranty. You may need to call in and see what support options you have there for out of warranty units.
