Cisco vs Huawei Essential Command Mapping


What I LIKE in Huawei after few weeks using it
-open SFP
that mean you can use any sfp brand, it will not complain, but I don’t know that will void warranty
in Aruba you can use 3rd party sfp but that will void warranty
in Ruckus open SFP as well but won’t void warranty
-1 year warranty
like Cisco
unlike Aruba and Ruckus which is limited lifetime warranty (the best in warranty, you can have 100 years warranty)
-price could be cheaper than anything else
that’s why most countries using it nowadays
-almost all the switches are L3 switch
if you want more feature such as vxlan, just add license
-telco in mind
you can have AC or DC power module in the back. if you want to change AC to DC, just add DC module
if you want more poe power just add two AC power modules
it has anti static port in the back

-save need in User mode
unlike Cisco that you type “do wr me” in config mode
unlike Aruba that you just type “wr me” in any mode
-who answer in forum is not technical enough compare to Cisco and Aruba forum

Ruckus ICX Rollback

I am curios on how to do rollback config in Ruckus when you didn’t cancel the job anything within 1hr.
That feature is standard in Juniper since long time a go
That is useful when you do remotely. In case you miss configure something like netmask that causing you disconnected and impossible for you to reconnect unless you console manually.

After post my question into Ruckus forum, Ruckus employee said that feature is not available.

Got an idea from how Aruba did rollback.
Two things I need to solve which are alias and cron job.
Smarter guy answer my post and here the steps although not perfect enough

to create an alias
#conf t
#alias bkup=copy flash flash file startup-config backup
#alias restor=copy flash flash file backup startup-config
to create a cron job
#conf t
#batch buffer 1 &
#restor &
#execute batch 1 after 00:00:01
#sh batch schedule
Batch buffer 1 will be executed 0 days 0 hours 0 minutes 52 seconds from now
NOTE:can’t put reload on batch

to reload after 2min
#reload 00:00:02
Those steps achieve my goal but almost perfect because
1. I can’t put reload in batch (see notes above), that’s why I need to put batch and reload in consecutive order

2. will be better if I can copy backup to running-config directly
I can do that but not affect current running-config
for example
current hostname SW1
wr me
copy startup-config to backup
change hostname to SW2
copy backup to running-config
those wont change my running hostname

Using Nginx as Load Balancer in Docker

-pull nginx

# docker pull nginx
# docker pull nginxdemos/hello

-run two nginx
because I want to set static ip to www1 and www2.
I need to create my own network

# docker network create –subnet= vlan10
# docker run –name=www1 –hostname=www1 –net vlan10 –ip -p 81:80 -d nginxdemos/hello

# docker run –name=www2 –hostname=www2 –net vlan10 –ip -p 82:80 -d nginxdemos/hello

-create nginx load balancer
# cat nginx.conf
upstream loadbalance {
server {
    location / {
        proxy_pass http://loadbalance;


# cat Dockerfile
FROM nginx
RUN rm /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf

COPY nginx.conf /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf

# docker build -t nginxbalancer .

# docker container run -p 80:80 -d nginxbalancer

-test accessing

it should show “Server address:”

-test shutdown both www1 and www2
# docker stop www1

# docker stop www2

test accessing

it should show bad gateway

-test run www1 again
# docker start www1
it should show “Server address:”

Replacing Acer E5-476G LCD

I have Acer Aspire E5-476G which the LCD screen has a white screen on a quarter of it.
It also has vertical lines.
It is a common problem in Acer.
I never encounter an LCD problem in Dell after using it for 6 years

After searching, I found that it has 2 types.
HD 1366×768 Glossy or FHD 1920×1080 Matte
The price difference on AliExpress is only $3, but I can’t wait for 1 month if shipping from China.

I try to fix myself because Repair Shop charges me double of the LCD price.
Which is in between $50-$70 range

After searching on Youtube, I think I can do myself.
But I have a backup plan too. Which is find a local store with the cheapest LCD price and cheapest installation fee.
Installation fee only $3.5
So I bought from a local store. HD type only $32
I have 2 options, which are doing it myself and save $3.5 or let the shop do it for me.

If I do it myself, I’ll have experience on it and will be useful if the same thing happens next time

Automatically backup config to scp or tftp when “write mem”

In Cisco, I can automatically backup config using scp or tftp to other location every time I issue “wr me”

How to achieve the same in other brand?
