This is my first ? under my own account (previously I had a corp account with my old job) but here goes. Hopefully you guys can lead me in the right direction.
Before I start here is the hardware and firmware I'm working with:
1- HP c7000 Blade System (OA 3.21 ver)
4- HP Procurve 6120X/XG (Ver Z_14_28)
The switches are in bays 1-4. Here is the issue I’m having. I'm trying to upload configs to them via xmodem (serial connection or usb direct to switch via mini port) ...during the upload transfer I notice in hyper term a "Got Retry Request" message ...maybe 1-3 retries then hyper term shuts down....switch asks to be rebooted (which is fine) but no upload of the config is the result.
During this process I’ll also get pop up saying "transfer cancelled by remote system" or Unresponsive request" ....very weird since I was able to upload the configs on a different c7000 with same switches using same process on same firmware.
I've also noticed if I try to go through the web console to the switch and upload the config that way I get the error "Upload failed! Line4. Invalid input : dos_filter" ...again this is me by passing xmodem and using the web manager of the switch to upload the config. My bay 1 switch will not even bring up the web which is another deal in itself.
Is this an OA issue? have you experienced any issues similar to this before? any suggestions or recommendations will be appreciated. I'm stumped..been t-shooting this for over a week now on my own new to blade systems. I've went through all of HP documentations, so I maybe over looking something that a more seasoned tech may know.
