partitions

Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:22 am

i just learned what partitions are. yea i know noob.

question, is there a way to boot into a different partition, without winbox/cli/serial? if lock myself out how can i switch partitions?

also im assuming a netinstall will wipe the entire partition table and restart it from scratch?

Power device on. Wait for a moment between booting of ros starts till it is not started yet. Unplug power. Plug power again and the second partition starts if it was set so... Using standard reset procedure you can get default admin login.

I guess a reboot is necessary for repartitioning the storage. The copy from live to backup partition is without reboot. But you should then boot to the second partition to test it. At least. So two reboots need to be expected. Try it in your lab first on non productive device to get familiar with it.

Yes it does.

And additionally just to advise you on RB3011: Partition does not work at all up to date (lasr RC tried too).
