Boot Partition ArubaOS 6.1

I have made a downgrade from the version 6.2 to 6.1. Now after doing this I cant get access to the device. I need your help to try to boot the 2nd partition and restore the 1st partition.

Re: Boot Partition ArubaOS 6.1

Are you able to get in via console/serial?

Issue "show image version" to see which partition 6.1 is on.

Then issue "boot system partition <0/1>"

Write mem, then reload.

OK, you can use the password recovery feature by entering:

username: password
password: forgetme!

 

Then go in and change the admin account 

 

(controller) (config) #mgmt-user admin root
Password: ******
Re-Type password: ******

Once you recover the password as cappali suggested you can do the following to boot and upgrade the second partition if that partition doesn't have the code you already want :

 

(controller) #copy tftp: 10.10.10.3 ArubaOS system: partition 1

 

(controller) #boot system partition 1

 

And then reboot.

 

If you can't reach the controller through your local network then you have to connect directly to one of the network ports

Thank you
