New to Brocade hardware

Hi,,

First, Sorry if this is already posted somewhere, But I recently found this 5100 Switch, but I think it's been wiped clean by previous owner, I'm wondering what I can do to get it functional..

here is boot log.....

The system is coming up, please wait...

Is it possible to get this switch ready for service?

I am new to networking and configuring equipment.

Thanks in advance..

Re: New to Brocade hardware

I'll post tomorrow some details how to can boot the switch in -s mode, and then you can try to mount the partition.

Re: New to Brocade hardware

c_wager,

I assume you are experienced with linux command

try follow:

boot the switch press ESC, and select option

3) Enter command shell

with printenv you see

OSLoadOptions=quiet;quiet

change this line with "setenv" command as follow

OSLoadOptions=single

save the config with "saveenv" command

enter the Boot command to bring up the device in single user mode

now, if one of both CF Partition is healthy, the switch should boot and you are in shell prompt like i.e.

sh-2.00#

let me know what happened

NOTE: LEAVE THE SWITCH IN SHELL MODE, NO POWER OFF OR REBOOT

I also tried a fresh unplugged reboot and received the same message..

I thought I'd better take a look inside the unit and found a empty spot for a flash card.. I'm guessing this would be storing the OS?

Re: New to Brocade hardware

this is indeed i problem, and i guess you have no chance to recovery the switch.

Re: New to Brocade hardware

mmm.. No way I could download an OS on a flash card to get this up and running?
