Boot stops at POST RAM test disabled

[ Edited ]

We have an "old" Brocade 300 switch that is not booting anymore. This device isn't under maintenance anymore, but we would like to use it in a lab. After a power outage, it won't boot anymore. The system status led stays orange and that the output we have when booting with console connected:


The system is coming up, please wait...

It will not go further.


Any idea?

Re: Boot stops at POST RAM test disabled

I think you're out a luck and the onboard flash-drive is broke. It therefore is unable to boot the OS and FOS.


Not much you can do I guess.
