I think it will start with a new CF card and OS, but nowhere can I find how to download the Fabric Operating System and how to write it on the card so that the device can start. Please help me how to download Fabric Operating System.
 
I look forward to receiving your reply.
 
Yours Sincerely,

@ythunder

 

from output, show as the CF is corrupted, and in such case there is no way to replace the CF and/or reinstall the FOS.

 

FOS upgrade, called "firmwaredownload" work only on Health Switch.

 

in feew word, this Switch as be to replace.

 

Finally, FOS download is available only with Active Maintenance Contract.
