Re: IDSM2 Failed to initialize hard disk, on IDSM2 during reimag

Sometimes the IDMS2 hard disk failure is transient (disk heads may get out of sync due to prolonged periods of use without spindown). If this is the case then you can pull the blade from the chassis (only way to actually power off the hard disk), wait 30 minutes, and then reseat the blade and try again. If this does not help then the hard disk has permanent damage so you will need to contact Cisco TAC and have them RMA the blade.
