How to boot the MikroTik device from SwOS?

MikroTik has another Operating System that you have used on MikroTik CRS3xx series Switches. This OS is called SwitchOS (SwOS). It is totally different than RouterOS and you can access it via web user interface only.

That means that each CRS3xx series can have both options to use as OS:

  • RouterOS (which is enabled by default)
  • SwOS (which you need to enable it to run on the switch)

Note that in case you have made some configuration on the switch using the RouterOS, the same configuration will not be used in case you shift to the SwOS.

Let’s do a LAB to see how we can go from RouterOS to SwOS.
