Load OS onto 800

I am trying to install an OS on an old A800. There is currently no OS on either partition.

I am connected via serial, and am at the cpboot prompt.

Here is the output of printenv:

cpboot> printenv
bootcmd=boot flash
bootdelay=2
baudrate=9600
serverip=10.0.1.5
location=1.1.1
bootfile=A800_5.0.3.0_26207
stdin=serial
stdout=serial
stderr=serial
ipaddr=10.0.1.90
master=10.0.1.90
gatewayip=10.0.1.1
netmask=255.255.255.0

Environment size: 222/508 bytes


I have set all that I think I need for netowrking to work so that I can load the OS using TFTP... however, I am missing something, cause networking is not working.

cpboot> ping 10.0.1.5
ARP broadcast 1 for 10.0.1.5
sibyte#0: tx buffer not transmitted
ARP broadcast 2 for 10.0.1.5
sibyte#0: tx error, buffer not ready



Also tftpboot results in a similar message.

Is there something else I need to do to bring up an ethernet interface perhaps?

Please either switch the interface that you are using the upload the code, or open a case with support.

Re: Load OS onto 800

How exactly do I do that. the ether command offers no help or auto completion.

Re: Load OS onto 800

I meant, plug your ethernet cable into a different physical port on the 800. I would try either the gigabit or leftmost fast ethernet.

Ahhh... I have tired those two ports.. I will try a different port.

Re: Load OS onto 800

Sadly, none of the ports seem to be able to gain access to the network.

As far as I can tell the device is configured with the correct network info, but refuses to ping any other device on the network. Even when I use a crossover and connect my laptop directly to the 800, I get no joy.

The support agreement has long since expired.

Any other ideas?

Re: Load OS onto 800

the master ip address is not needed for this;

you should do "setenv master"

Re: Load OS onto 800

Unfortunately, removing the IP address form "Master" does not resolve this issue. I still cannot ping anything.

I don't know where do go from here.

Re: Load OS onto 800

Okay,

Do this:

cpboot> fpga program
cpboot> cab init
cpboot> robo init bridge
cpboot> uartb
cpboot> eforw eth1 eth2

cpboot> ping

If that works:

cpboot> part 0
cpboot> upgrade 0
cpboot> upgrade 1
