WS-C2960X-48TS-L Boot Fail

Hello guys,

 

I got that problem with my switch, it just says `BOOT FAIL` in PuTTY and also fan is not working. I changed fan with another working one but still fan is not working and still I got same problem. Is there any suggestions what should I do?

 

Thank you.

Hi edsonnraya1,

 

Have you tried holding down the mode button as you would during the password-recovery process. 

 

1. Hold down mode button 

2. flash_init

3. dir flash:  ( in order to verify the image-ios is present )chec

4. Issue the set command ( in order to verify the correct boot sequence in relation to the image-ios )

5. at the switch prompt manually type boot exp. 
switch: boot

6. if all is OK then the switch should boot.

7. Upon successful boot-up you could verify the image-ios or ideally replace the image-ios.

The above worked for me but each situation poses variations.

 

I hope it is of some use.

 

Thank you.
