Aruba 7005 , factory-defaulted and no link on no interfaces ? / preboot cli reset?



wondering about some strange behaviour , not sure if the 7005 is faulty then i RMA it , the 7005 is our demo controller for customers and it's factory default , the CLI setup is working, but after the usual steps (country code, default IP , master , shutdown ports -> no ...) then controller is rebooting as usual and freezing on "reading default config", and nothing happens.


surprisingly a webUI setup is not possible due to no ethernet link at all on no port, normally as usual its in switch-access mode vlan1 and you can access it on as everyone knows.


any ideas during boot-CLI to try some steps there, i never needed the boot-CLI to reflash/recover/etc   a controller.


i expect that this MC is faulty on ethernet ports , besides this could be the reason that no eth is not working cause it's hanging on "reading default config" see screenshot below and so the webUI default web-wizard also not working .

Re: Aruba 7005 , factory-defaulted and no link on no interfaces ? / preboot cli reset?

Stop the controller before boot and run (here is a good how-to) and format the 0:2

. Power cycle the controller and break into the CPBoot by hitting the enter key on startup (console access).

=> The one with cpboot> as the prompt - so the second one on a 7220.

2. Format Partition 0:2, which is where the configuration file is stored:

cpboot> format 0:2

Format will erase everything on the internal flash's partition 2.

Are you sure you want to continue (y/n)?y

Re: Aruba 7005 , factory-defaulted and no link on no interfaces ? / preboot cli reset?



We've just got a brand new Aruba 7005 controller and it seems to stuck in the boot process, just after "Starting OS services"

Below is the output on the serial console. Are we missing something important or there is any problem with this unit?

You might want to call TAC.  You might have to RMA the controller.
