Netbotz 450 not loading all boot processes

This question was originally posted on DCIM Support by Thabo Maepa on 2018-10-02


Hello All, I have recently encountered a puzzling issue with a Netbotz 450. Connecting to it serially via terminal. The appliance hangs while booting up, see below:

The appliance hangs at Net: FCC1 ETHERNET

Note: appliance is operating with the latest firmware, date of manufacture: 2018/03/09. 

Nothing loads after that. What might be causing this issue?

Hi Thabos,

 

I've seen a few instances where the reset button has been stuck "in" and it can cause the boot to hang or the system to constantly reboot. My first suggestion is to get a paper clip and push in on the reset button and move it around a little to see if that resolves the issue. 

Other than that, it might be a firmware issue. I'm not sure where these lines are in the boot process but if it gets past the u-boot load (where it says press any key within 10, 9, 8....) then I would suggest reflashing the firmware using the tftp flash procedure here:

 

Thanks,

Steve.

Hi Steve

Thanks for the response, I'll check if the reset button is stuck. i have a feeling that might be the cause. 😀

as for where it says press any key within 10, 9, 8....). the boot procedure doesn't reach that point.
