Unable to upgrade AOS, partiton issues

[ Edited ]

Hi, Im have been trying to upgrade my 3400 wireless controller and followed the necessary documentation to upgrade the AOS from my PC.

 

cpboot>setenv ipaddr x.x.x.x
cpboot>setenv netmask x.x.x.x
cpboot>setenv gatewayip x.x.x.x
cpboot>setenv serverip x.x.x.x      (note: if you are running the tftp program on the same PC then the gatewayip and serverip should be same)

==============================================================================

Output:

=======

 cpboot> ver

cpboot> upgrade 0 ArubaOS_MMC_6.4.2.8_50314

How do i know which partition is present, i have tried 0, 1, 0:0, 0:1 . Is there a command to check the flash or if the disk are present.

 

Any Workarounds that i can try ???

Please follow this article: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/3600-controller-out-of-space-when-boot-up/td-p/82024

 

That procedure completely wipes/reformat your flash; where (I don't have a 3400 to test) you might need to do a "format 0:2" on the 3400 if the format 0 does not work.

 

If the system is still under support, I would advise to contact Aruba TAC instead of trying yourself.

Unfortunatly it was a ebay purchase so getting a Aruba support is a issue,on entering

 

cpboot> format 0:2
Format will erase everything on the internal flash's partition 2.
Device 0 not present

 

it dosent seem to do much, any other options i can try ?

It would seem the bootflash drive is physically missing in my device after opening it up, can some recommend the compatiable size, brand and model for my 3400 Controller.

 

Thanks.

Re: Unable to upgrade AOS, partiton issues

Can you post a picture of the slot where the memory is missing?

Assuming the slot in middle is missing the storage.

Looks like a 512mb compact flash:
