IDSM-2 not booting up after System Image ugrade

Hi friends,

I had attempted to upgrade the WS-SVC-IDSM2 blade on Cisco 6509 (Sup 720) switch to SW ver 6.0(3) from Maintenence partition 2.1(2) but was unsuccessful. The IDSM-2 was initially running ver 5.1(3).

The file that i tried was WS-SVC-IDSM2-K9-SYS-1.1-a-6.0-3-E1.bin.gz.

I followed the instructions as per the Configuration Guide for Installing System images but still failed on this.

Now, the module fails to boot.

I am only able to log into the maintainence partition after using the command hw-module module 3 reset cf:1.

But I am not able to log into the application partition after using the command hw-module module 3 reset hdd:1.

When i execute show images command in Maintainence partition, i still see the version listed as 5.x.

Running show module on the switch when booting the IDSM-2 in application partition yields the following output:

After I unplug the module from slot and replug it, the module comes online but only boots still into maintenence partition.

I dont have a service account also. Have any of you come across this issue?

Any directions on this will be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot
