Good day,


A WAE device shows off line in the CM, however, it is accessable. When trying to recover the unit with "cms recover identity default" after de-activating the device and marking it as recoverable, it fails with the following output:


-admin-shell: spawnp: verify binary file: /sw/merlot/bin/spen: No such file or directory

Error spawning user process '/sw/merlot/bin/spen': No such file or directory



Anyone seen this? Any recommendations?


Thanks in advance.

Paul

Paul,


I would say it looks like a corrupt software install, I would do a rescue DC installation which wipes clean the disk and re-installs all the code. You can download the rescue CD image (.iso) from cisco.com, burn it to CD and pop it in and reboot. Follow the instructions here:


https://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/app_ntwk_services/waas/waas/v413/configuration/guide/maint.html#wp1105207


That should give you a fresh installation. I recommend doing 2, 3, 5, 7, and 8 to get a completely fresh install. Step 7 and 8 usually take a while to complete.


Hope that helps,

Dan

Do "show disk detail", do you have all the HDs online and are the partitions all showing up?

Dan,


Thanks for the reply.


This is what I was going to do as this was what I suspected as well.


Just wanted to check all possibilities first, sanity check :).


Thanks again for your response.
