I need to restore a the kickstart and system files on a 3548X that is sitting at the loader prompt. My company frowns on TFTP servers. Can I load these files from a USB flash drive?
copy system and kickstart image in usb,
please type "help boot" in loader prompt, to check USB is getting detect.loader>help boot
loader> boot usb1:n3000-uk9-kickstart.x.x.x.Ux.x.bin
it will prompt switch(boot)#
switch(boot)#copy usb1:n3000-uk9.x.x.x.Ux.x.bin bootflash:n3000-uk9.x.x.x.Ux.x.bin
Verify that both images are in the bootflash using the command:switch(boot)#dir bootflash:
See if the switch is able to boot up switch(boot)#load bootflash:/n3000-uk9.x.x.x.Ux.x.bin
During the boot, you will be asked whether you would like to enter the initial configuration mode,.switch#show running-config
reload the switch switch#reload
Thank you for the reply.
Update - the device was not responding correctly. It was determined during a call with TAC that the device had failed and a RMA processed.
