After giving up on trying to get this or any C9300 (I have tried on 3) to go into configuration and trying everything posted here in the forum. I decided to try loading the IOS FUJI 16.9.3 firmware and performed a factory reset all according to this document.
I am not trying to figure out how to reinstall the iOS image from the switch: prompt. I may have missed it, but I could not find a good article on this.
I did not save any of the previous config, as I want to start completely clean. I do have IOS Fuji 16.9.3 image on a USB Key and I have also copied it onto flash:
Any pointers will be greatly appreciated.
Hi firstname.lastname@example.org ,
Try with this link:
I don't there is no order way to install an image other than through the CLI.
Here is an article how to perform a software install, https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst9300/software/release/16-9/configuration_guide/sys_mgmt/b_169_sys_mgmt_9300_cg/performing_setup_configuration.html?bookSearch=true
Thank you, I am working through the document. I was able to boot to the bin file into bundle mode. I need to figure out how to flip over to booting in install mode. I probably will have additional questions.
Here is the guide.
