UCS FI Factory Reset: Error 15: File not found

Hey, I am trying to do a factory reset on a pair of 6120XP fabric interconnects. This is due to the fact that someone accidentally tried to upgrade the UCSM to a new version of code, where the 61XX series FI´s are no longer supported. According to documentation, the first part of the process is to do a password recovery on the FI´s, as we are not able to log into them with the previous username / password. 

 

I followed the procedure as listed here: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/unified_computing/ucs/sw/cli/config/guide/2-0/b_UCSM_CLI_Configuration_Guide_2_0/b_UCSM_CLI_Configuration_Guide_2_0_chapter_0100110.html

 

When I go to boot the kickstart image using loader> boot /installables/switch/ucs-6100-k9-kickstart.5.0.3.N2.2.1s.bin I get a starnge error even though the images are indeed in the dir directory. I have not been able to find anything on the web about this.

Has anyone ever seen this before? 

 

Thank you!

Re: UCS FI Factory Reset: Error 15: File not found

Hello,
right syntax to boot FI from image under bootflash ( unless if you have another image file under bootflash:/installables/switch )

boot ucs-6100-k9-kickstart.5.0.3.N2.2.1s.bin ucs-6100-k9-system.5.0.3.N2.2.1s.bin

Thanks

Hi, after resetting the password, it will not let me log into the box with the new password:
