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:
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 for the response and the information you shared.
This issue is because your switch is running on the Routing code (SPR). The Switch should run on the Switching code (SPS) to avoid these issues for Lennar home users. Due to a power outage/power spike, the Switch boots up on the other partition which may be running on a ‘Routing Code’ results in causing this issue.
As I can see from the output you shared, your Switch is booted up on the secondary partition which is running on Routing code (SPR) as highlighted in the below screenshot.
Please Enter the below commands in CLI to fix this issue by copying Switching code (SPS) on the second partition as well:
ICX7150-24P Router>enable (hit enter to accept the command) ICX7150-24P Router#copy flash flash secondary (hit enter to accept the command and wait: until the flash finished) ICX7150-24P Router#boot system flash secondary yes (hit enter to accept the command: the switch will reboot)
We suggest upgrading your switch to the latest stable version to avoid this issue in the future. Your Switch is on an older version that is 08080d. Please let us know once you complete the above process to assist you with the Upgrade of the Switch.
Please let me know if you have any queries in this regard.
Thank you again for your patience and understanding.
Please follow the below steps explaining the Upgrade process.
The recommended stable version is 8095g (08.0.95g)
The Upgrade path would be: 08080d (your current version)>>8080f>>8095g
(PLEASE NOTE: Use 08095g patch in place of 8095h as explained in the guide)
Your Upgrade folder should contain these 3 files shown in the below screenshot: (Refer the guide link for more information)
Below are the options or methods to perform the Upgrade on the switch: You could choose any one of these.
1. In this option, we will use a pen drive or USB flash drive in which we move the files to the pen drive and connect it to the Switch then through CLI we execute the commands to upgrade the Switch using the following guide as a reference:
How to Upgrade a Switch ICX-7150-C12P using a USB flash drive
2. The following guide is an example of an upgrade via TFTP server, by using an application (FREE) to send files or upload remote files to a device, in our case, we will use it to update a new version to the Switch, basically it will send the image version remotely from the computer to the switch.
This did not work for me. I tried using the super admin account but the password does not work. I tried the same thing using the "admin" account and it does like the command provided, please see screen shot below:
I am connected to the switch using putty and connected on ssh port.
