Ruckus 7150 Switch SYST light yellow, stuck in boot mode

New Contributor


 After power outages, my Ruckus switch stays in boot mode, SYST light is yellow. I was able to connect from my laptop using a USB-C cable and ran the command BOOT_PRIMARY, which shows that it goes to the secondary to actually boot and then works. 

I am trying to run the software upgrade per your article: 

RUCKUS Forums - How to perform a Software recovery on an ICX7150 s... - CommScope RUCKUS Community F...

However, using a USB-C connection, it does not show up as a Network device, so I do not know how to configure the IP address (Gateway, Server IP, etc) in order to push the image files to the switch. I am able to run off the secondary image so far, but that could become corrupt at some point like the primary and I won't be able to use my switch anymore. Can you provide the steps on how to perform the software update using the USB-C connection, NOT the ethernet connection. 

Thank you,

My lights are all green and its working at this moment as I mentioned in my question. I can upload a picture but right now it is all green.

I performed a BOOT_PRIMARY command connected to the switch with a USB-C cable and it restored from the Secondary image, the primary is corrupt so the switch cannot startup after loss of power.

I need to update the firmware on the switch and I was following your directions ( i provided a link from your website in my original post on how to update the software on the switch). The directions do not walk through the network settings configuration and how to do it with a USB-C cable. 

Now, I need to know how to perform this step when connecting to the switch using a USB-C cable, not an ethernet connection. When I look at the network connections, all I see is my wifi router. 

The screen shot below shows what I cannot do with a USB-C cable connection, there is no 'Ethernet' network connection so I cannot configure the IP Addresses. I need to know how to do the same steps but using a USB-C cable. 


Thanks for your assistance.

Hi @LenRuck2023 


Thank you for the response and the information you shared.

Please note, the Switch upgrade has some different processes. I will assist you with that later after checking some required configurations. Please help us with the below-mentioned process to assist you further.

As I see from the picture you shared, seems like the ethernet cable which is coming from the Router is plugged into the wrong port on the Switch panel. It must be plugged into the 1 in-12 ports as shown in the below screenshot. Please unplug the ethernet cable and plug it into the correct port.

We will check some configurations on the Switch to proceed with Upgrade, please follow the below steps to check the same.

Please follow the below steps and help us with the queries,

1. To check this issue, we must identify the ‘current’ IP address assigned by your local router to the switch ICX-7150-C12P

I will leave you a guide on how to perform an IP scanner on your local network to identify the switch IP address very easily. 

How to find my Ruckus “Devices IP address” using free applications:

2. Once we identify the IP address of the switch proceed to access remotely to the device “Command Line” 

How to remotely access to 'ICX 7150-C12P' or 'access points' "Network devices":

If you can access the Command line should look like this:

ICX7150-C12 Router> OR

ICX7150-C12 Switch>

Please enter the below commands once you log in to CLI and share the output.

Note: Hit Enter to accept each command

Please share the output of the above commands or share the screenshots if stuck at any step or error (if any) and let me know if you have any queries in this regard.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
