  1. Is this boot supposed to be permanent? I edit and write mem, but when I reload the switch I boot back to primary flash code not the secondary.

  2. The last Line: “Note that the hostname has not changed to ICX6610-24 Router”

    should this read “Note that the hostname has now changed to ICX6610-24 Router” ?

    (not changed to now)
