I inherited a switch 2530-24G and I tried to reset it to set up a fixed IP + web management interface. The factory reset procedure went OK, I could set name and IP but there was no way to have the management interface up and running despite the fact using show console the service was marked as turned ON.
So I (wrongly) thought I could erase everything and start from scratch with a new firmware... However after hours of tries I can't put a firmware on this machine using xmodem protocol.
When it boots:
ROM information:Build directory: /ws/swbuildm/lakesrom_qaoff/rom/build/lakesrom(swbuildm_lakesrom_qaoff_smb)Build date: Oct 31 2012Build time: 15:27:40Build version: YA.15.12Build number: 11165
Error, /cfa0/boot.ini corrupted; please reboot to console and repair.Could not open Image file
Bad code in FLASH
Flash memory needs reprogramming or chassis could be faulty.Use a PC as the console and perform the update procedureby serial Xmodem download of the current Switch Image.If unsuccessful w/ downloading, then try replacing chassis.

Enter h or ? for help.
then using screen on Linux/MacOS or TeraTerm/ExtraPutty onWindows, I tried to upload the firmware YA_16_04_0016.swi but after the upload nothing happens.
Following https://techhub.hpe.com/eginfolib/networking/docs/switches/WB/15-18/5998-8162_wb_2920_mcg/content/ch11s11.html I went up to the last line ... but the switch doesn't reboot nor display messages once the .swi file is sent
You have invoked the console download utility.Do you wish to continue? (Y/N)>
It's like it's downloaded in /dev/null ... I even waited a few hours in case it needed time to decompress or install itselfI also retried with HyperTerminal/Putty and another .swi file (YA.16.11.0002) again, no reboot at the end of the file transfer and even after manually reboot it, the switch won't launch an image so, wether I'm uploading a wrong file or I missed several times accross several software the same option.I can't believe there's no way to push a firmware on a machine that expensive. Any ideas I should try ? Or is it now an expensive brick?Many thanks
