Switch stuck in boot mode and TFTP doesn't work

New Contributor

After power outage my 7150 C12p switch is stuck in boot mode. I tried to follow the TFTP instructions here: RUCKUS Forums - How to perform a Software recovery on an ICX7150 s... - CommScope RUCKUS Community F...

however I can not ping the TFTP server and I tripled check everything. It always claims TFTP can't be pinged. Can I not do a copy from USB instead of using TFP?
