Cisco MDS9120 crashes after commit the load command

Hi everybody,

I have a problem with my MDS9120 SAN-Switch. When i try to power up the switch, he ends up in the boot loader. So I have to boot the kickstart image manually:


                Loader Version 1.2(2)

loader> dir
bootflash:
  lost+found
  m9100-s1ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.5b.bin
  m9100-s1ek9-mz.3.3.5b.bin

loader> boot m9100-s1ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.5b.bin

Okay, then the switch boots the kickstart image like it usually does. I'm gonna find myself in switch(boot):


loader> boot m9100-s1ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.5b.bin
Booting kickstart image: m9100-s1ek9-kickstart-mz.3.3.5b.bin....
.............................................Image verification OK

switch(boot)#

Now, and here comes my problem, i wanna boot the real system image:

switch(boot)# load m9100-s1ek9-mz.3.3.5b.bin

Uncompressing system image: bootflash:/m9100-s1ek9-mz.3.3.5b.bin

CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

Uncompressing linecard components

INIT: Switching to runlevel: 3

INIT: Sending processes the TERM signal

INIT: (boot)#

After that, the switch reloads without any input and ends up again in the boot loader.

I'm working with cisco for a while now, but i never saw something like that. Please, if you have any advice, let me know.

I appreciate any help. Thank you!!!
