Troubleshooting the support Directory

The support directory is unique in the fact that it is not a copy of the switch’s filesystem. Actually, it is the output from various commands. For example:


Equivalent Command



cumulus@switch:~$ ip addr show

This shows you all the interfaces (including swp front panel ports), IP address information, admin state and physical state.
