Router Reboot Loop

Posted on 2006-07-07

Following a power outage, our new Adtran Netvantage 3205 (which is running Cisco's IOS) is in a reboot loop. From a console, I can see it load the image and even start the inerfaces, then it restarts.

I know there are more Cisco users out there, since this thing uses a flavor of Cisco's IOS, how would you solve this problem on one of those systems? I had the same problem years ago on a Cisco box and we had to nuke the NV ram somehow.

Any Ideas, we are in a real bind with this.

Thanks!

Before it starts decompressing the image I believe you can hit SPACE BAR or CTRL-BRK to go onto rommon mode.  From there you can replace the image.  I would also try replacing the memory on that because it seems it got fried or at least something internally.

Thanks, Yes I have tried that, but so far can't break in. I'll keep trying and see if I can get it to stop.

It sucks that you can't go in there to show the stack.  I say try replacing the memory.  If this doesn't fix it then it's a bad router.
