I setup a new CSS 11500 this morning, going through the steps of setting up the administrator password, IP address for the management console etc, but when continuing the CSS went straight to the offline DM menu. Now rebooting the unit it clears all the tests, loads the operational flash but continues to go straight to the DM menu regardless whether you press <y> or not at the prompt.
I also tried connecting via telnet to the management console but get connection refused.
Any ideas on why the CSS boots only to the DM menu?
I was just searching through the forum here to see if anyone else had the same problem and found one post where someone said to make sure there is a flash card inserted. Were we supposed to recieved a flash card with the unit? I checked and there is no pcmcia cards.
The problem was solved. The next day we recieved the microdrive so I was able to setup the CSS. Now all I have to do is figure out how to use it :) I did get level3 load balancing working between two servers so now to get failover setup.
Thanks for your help on this one, turns out it was a missing microdrive.
