Hi all - here is an easy question for you i_f30.gif


I am in the process of configuring a mix of S12704, S6720 & S5720 switches for a client (and this is my first project with Huawei switches).


Previously I've been able to copy files to/from a USB memory stick when inserted in an AC6005, and I had assumed the same funtionality would be available on S-series switches. But that does not appear to be the case.


For example; on an S5720 running V200R011C10SPC600/SPH011, when I insert a FAT32 formatted USB memory stick I see the following on the console:


USBLOAD EVENT: U-DISK insert.

Sep 16 2019 09:46:11+02:00 DST S1-SM-P0C USBLOAD/4/UsbPlugIn:OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.2011.5.25.129.2.1.9 u-disk plug in. (EntityPhysicalIndex=67108873, BaseTrapSeverity=3, BaseTrapProbableCause=68073, BaseTrapEventType=5, EntPhysicalContainedIn=67108869, EntPhysicalName=MPU Board 0, RelativeResource=USB, ReasonDescription=USB plug in)


The USB disk is available.


But I am unable to access the USB device filesystem:


<S1-SM-P0C>dir usb:/

Error: Wrong device.


Similarly; I see no mount or unmount command in the CLI.


I confirm that USB-based deployment works on this switch using the same USB memory stick.


I've had a pretty good look through the documentation but I haven't found anything to enable the USB filesystem. Am I missing something, or is this functionality just not available on S-Series switches?


Thanks in advance.

@offshore.kiwi hi,
are you trying to upload configuration files from the USB disk to the switch? If yes, you can try the USB-based deployment. you can refer http://support.huawei.com/hedex/hdx.do?docid=EDOC1000177841&id=dc_cfg_pd_0001&text=USB-based%252520Deployment%252520Configuration&lang=en

If you just want to upload/download files to/from the switch, you can try enable the FTP service, and upload/download files from the local PC to the switch.

Thanks @chenhui - yes I've already been using USB-based deployment successfully & have also been using tftp to copy files to/from the switches.

So I guess the usb:/ filesystem just is not supported on switches.
