Netvanta 1238 3rd gen factory default from bootstrap

Jump to solution

I'm in a pickle. I rebooted a Netvanta 1238 3rd gen and it didn't come up. Long story short, I fashioned a DB9 console connection from other posts and saw I am stuck at bootstrap. I get some characters, but still a lot of garbage. Anyway, I can't tell what image is loaded due to the console output. Is there a way to set this to default. I copied the config before the reboot.

Thanks!

I made a third attempt with a different terminal emulator, terra term. Performed an xmodem transfer with N123Xv2A-R11-10-1.biz and was able to boot from it. Thanks goodness I had a backup of the config.

Next I erased the flash and attempted to load a new image via modem...

bootstrap#copy xmodem flash

Destination filename?N123Xv2A-R11-10-1.biz

Begin the Xmodem transfer now...

Press CTRL+X twice to cancel

CCC

### Send N123Xv2A-R11-10-1.biz: 7436160 bytes, 1:08:27 elapsed, 1810 cps, 15

%

Transfer complete.

bootstrap#dir flash

% Invalid or incomplete command

bootstrap#dir

'NONVOL:/N123Xv2A-R11-10-1.biz' is not a valid image.

Then I performed another modem transfer with a different image...

bootstrap#copy xmodem flash

Destination filename?NV123XA-18-01-08-00.biz

Begin the Xmodem transfer now...

Press CTRL+X twice to cancel

CCCCC

This is a Netvanta 1238P, but the boot rom reports it as a 1234...

bootstrap#show version

Boot ROM version XB.01.03

  Checksum: 3B20, built on: Fri Dec 05 07:38:29 2014

  Compatibility Version: 1

Copyright (c) 1999-2014, ADTRAN, Inc.

Platform: NetVanta 1234, Part number 1702594G1

Serial number LBADTN1449AH458

Which image can I load to get this thing to boot???!!!

Thanks for helping!
