750G won't upgrade

Tue Oct 11, 2011 12:27 pm

Hi all,

Got a problem with a 750G I've not seen before.

It's currently running 4.13 and needs upgrading. Drag and drop 5.7 firmware (mipsbe!) and reboot.

Nothing in the logs and it doesn't upgrade.

Any ideas before I drive to the customer's site and nuke the box?

Had this exact problem and solved it by upgrading to ROS 4.17, reboot, upgraded firmware, reboot, then upgraded to 5.7.

I'm not sure if I actually removed the power at some stage (NOT DURING THE UPGRADE) but maybe after the firmware upgrade. That got it to work.
