Recovering from a corrupted image of the system's boot device

You can recover from a corrupted image of the boot device (such as the CompactFlash card) for a storage system by using the remote management device.

Steps

  1. Log in to the remote management device by entering the following command at the administration host:
    ssh username@IP_for_remote_management_device

    The CLI prompt for the remote management device appears. It can be one of the following, depending on the platform model:

    SP>

    RLM>

  2. At the CLI prompt for the remote management device, perform one of the following steps:
    • To reboot the storage system by using the primary BIOS firmware image, enter the following command:
      system reset primary
    • To reboot the storage system by using the backup BIOS firmware image, enter the following command:
      system reset backup

    The console informs you that the command will cause a "dirty system shutdown" and asks you whether to continue.

  3. Enter y to continue.

    The storage system shuts down immediately.
