I have an Aruba 7220 controller which is getting stuck saying "Reading configuration from default.cfg" - it gets no further after several minutes/hours and I get no login prompt. It does respond to me pressing RETURN a few times by printing blank lines, so it's not completely frozen. The LCD panel on the front says the same thing and the buttons don't work.
If I break in at CPboot (at the second "Hit any key to stop autoboot" prompt), then I can do "setenv cfgfile default1.cfg" / "save" / "reset" and get the setup wizard again. However, at the end of this, I get:
Do you wish to accept the changes (yes|no)yes
Creating configuration...Failed to initialize mysql connection.. Continuing.
System will now restart!
If I now break in to CPboot again and blank cfgfile with "setenv cfgfile" / "save" / "bootf" (or "reset") the controller gets hung on "Reading configuration from default.cfg". If I don't blank cfgfile, the controlelr re-enters the wizard again.
The 7220 controller is running 220.127.116.11 and was being set up ready to migrate off our existing M3-based infrastructure (running the same release) - I can't remember what configuration was saved on it, but it may have been either blank or had a base configuration ready to be joined to the mobility domain. However, I don't mind blatting it, although it does have licences on it.
How can I break in and recover the controller (with or without saving the configuration)?
