I've been given a reported faulty McData 4500 to look at and was hoping somebody here might be able to shed a bit of light.
Apparently it does not initialise properly
It is removed from the fabric, when powered up it does the following
Green power LED lit
LAN port LED's lit
Orange fault LED flashes briefly
All Blue LED's flash (briefly)
All Orange port lights lit then go out
All Blue port lights flash (briefly)
All Blue port light lit then go out.
Blue port lights flash one after the other in sequence.
So it appears to be going through the boot check ok?
I have no idea what the ip address is for this unit so I connected to it via the com port and hyperterminal. I am able to connect ok and it accepts the default password. However it will not accept any commands, C> ipconfig for example it says Invalid Command.
Any idea's ? could it be corrupt firmware and if so how do I reload it?
