wsm firmware upgrade incident



I am afraid I've screwed up upgrading the firmware on one of our serverirons. I've successfully upgraded the main flash, but from some reason the wsm flash is empty. the system is now stuck after boot saying "WSR initialization in progress. Please wait..." but it never completes. I cannot enter enable because of that. Is there any way to fix this?

Hi Steve,


Did you see this post already by chance?

Re: wsm firmware upgrade incident

Hi Martin,


yes I did see it actually. I spent hours trying all possible options - removing the card, putting it in different slot etc. without any luck since the failed upgrade - so it is unlikely to be related to physical installation of the board as I've been reshuffling it hundred times without any joy.
