Currently having an issue on a DTECH M3SE3, on the switch side. It’s been configured but after reload just loops saying “SW1 con0 is now available, press RETURN to get started.” There is no mode button on the switch, the only button is to zeroize the router and that really doesn’t help my situation. I saw one thing saying I could get into the ROMMON by hitting the break key as it was booting up but that didn’t work either. Matter of fact during boot up there is no line stating anything about ROMMON (I think usually there’s supposed to be a ROMMON initialized line or something like that).
Model is ESS-2020-NCP-B, I’m sure it’s not a frequently touched device but just hoping someone has an idea. There is a line during boot up saying “The password-recovery mechanism is enabled.” so I assume there’s something I can do but I haven’t seen the answer.
Wait for the flash initializing message to appear as shown:
...done Initializing Flash.
The system has been interrupted, or encountered an error during initialization of the file system. These commands will initialize the flash filesystem, and finish loading the operating system software:
Press the express setup (or CNSL) pin on the switch when flash initializing for 3-5 seconds. You will now see the 'switch:' prompt.
Use these commands to backup the configuration that already exists.
