Upgrade problem: What to do when netinstall fails?

Mon Aug 28, 2006 8:48 am

While attempting a normal upgrade to an RB532 running 2.9.14, we copied the new firmware (2.9.27) to the the router and then rebooted and now it won't boot at all. We are not sure what happened, but we ended up having to pull the unit after multiple attempts to fix the problem with Netinstall.

Here's the scenario: netinstall says upgrading, then ready, but then it just doesn't do anything. We've even tried upgrading the BIOS first, and still nothing, has anybody had this happen before?

Here's what happens...



RouterBOOT-1.5
What do you want to configure?
d - boot delay
k - boot key
s - serial console
o - boot device
u - cpu mode
f - try cpu frequency
c - keep cpu frequency
r - reset configuration
g - upgrade firmware
i - board info
p - boot protocol
t - do memory testing
x - exit setup
your choice: x - exit setup


writing settings to flash... OK


RouterBOOT booter 1.5

RouterBoard 532A

CPU frequency: 330 MHz
Memory size: 64 MB

Press any key within 2 seconds to enter setup..
loading kernel from nand... OK
setting up elf image... OK
jumping to kernel code

I'm not sure if i'm missing something from the instructions or just not getttng. I'm getting the same results. On the console I see waiting for Installation Server and can't do anything. On Netinstall it just says Sending Offer, then that dissapears and the status changes to ready :( using netinstall 2.9.29. I reboot and everythins is still the same. I'm trying to re-install due to a lost password.
