Obtaining the Rescue Image from a TFTP Server

To recover the switch, you must enter the Bootloader and issue a series of commands.

After you download the ExtremeXOS image file, the switch installs the software and reboots. After the switch reboots, the switch enters an uninitialized state. At this point, configure the switch and save your configuration. In addition, if you previously had modular software packages installed, you must re-install the software packages to each switch partition. For more information about installing software packages, see Software Upgrade and Boot Options.

If you are unable to recover the switch with the rescue image, or the switch does not reboot, contact Extreme Networks Technical Support.
