    Hello,


    Please, i have brocade 300 switch,  due to some power issue, one of my brocade 300 switch started showing Amber LED.
    when i figure it out I found that primary partition has corrupted, I boot the switch from secondary partition. its seems everything is working fine.

    but Now, i want to repair the primary partition. is there any way i can do my own? what should i do ?

    Hi,

    I don't think you can.
    You can try a firmwaredownload (with the same version of code), see if that will work. The firmwaredownload will install the firmware first on the secondary partition, if that works then you are in business otherwise, you still can try the firmwarecleaninstall (which will set the switch to factory defaults) after that I think you would be looking at replacement.
    Regards,
    Ed

    Hi Ed

    The Kimanshu´s orientation is good and we have the another option, firmwarecommit cli.

    Firmwarecommit copy Primary partition over Secondary partition.

    Just a comment: Now, the BAD Partition is a Secondary Partition and the Production Partition became the Primary one. Good Look!
