Unable to restore database on 3600 controller

After an unexpected power loss, our 3600 controller is unable to boot. It gets to "restoring the database" and sits. Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, what did you do to solve it? I imagine the next step is hardware replacement.

Re: Unable to restore database on 3600 controller

It is possible that the flash is corrupt.  You should probably open a TAC case ASAP to see what they can do...
