Nortel 2/3 Layer IBM Blade Switch Bricked?
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have an IBM E Class Enclosure with 2 Nortel (BNT) 2/4 1Gb 6 port switchs.
The first switch will not POST and from the serial connection it reports that its missing both images 1 & 2.
So it has no primary or backup firmware installed, I can break the reboot cycle by CTRL+C and get into "Developement Mode" but see no way to flast the firmware back into the switch.
Is there anyway to get the firmware reflashed via the serial cable since it currently seems to have none, I have the latest firmware from IBM and also the 2nd switch which is the same model is available to copy an image.
Not sure how the firmware got wiped as its a new client and I have to manage this system now.
Any help please?
