I am trying out build 202012.34159-84b565937 and I saw a directory for my switch, /usr/share/sonic/device/x86_64-dellemc_z9432f_c3758-r0, but was empty.  Is this directory just auto-created when booted?

Are there plans to support the Dell z9432f?

Thanks,

-Andrew

Hi Andrew,

 

That directory is typically generated based on a value programmed in the platform’s EEPROM, so yes it is autogenerated as you suspected. The “x86_64-dellemc_z9432f_c3758-r0” string is programmed into the EEPROM at the factory.

 

There are plans to support the Dell Z9432F-ON in the roadmap. We are currently working on other platforms like the S5212F-ON, S5224F-ON, N3248TE-ON, and N3248PXE-ON.

Also, the Z9332F-ON is another 32x 400G switch that is currently supported in SONiC, although it is running the Broadcom Tomahawk3 ASIC rather than the Broadcom Trident4.X11 that the Z9432F-ON has.

 

Thanks,

Jeff
