Issue Description:

Due to a power outage/power spike, the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch went to a state that we call ‘boot mode’ that is not able to boot up properly with an Amber/Orange light on the "SYST" and a Green light on the "PWR". When reset (here is a reset video link) using a paperclip doesn’t work we fix it by the troubleshooting process called ‘Software Recovery’ and during this process we may come across a known error “ping failed; host 192.168.0.x is not alive”. At this point, we can follow the explained process to avoid this and complete the Software Recovery process successfully.
