I am currently studying for my CCNA and have acquired some cisco equipment to help me with this. One of the devices I have is a Cat 2980G 80 port but for some reason I am unable to connect to it via the console port. All my other switches and routers connect fine except this device. The power light shows as GREEN but the STATUS LED is solid AMBER. From what i have gathered from various sites is that the IOS is probably corrupt and unable to load.
If I am unable to access the switch via CONSOLE, how can this problem be rectified if at all.
also be aware that a 2980G is an old Catos box not IOS just in case you did not know. I don't remember there being any difference in the console cables on the catos boxes except the real old 5500 series . Even if it was corrupt it should dump you into rommon mode. If it's corrupt and you can get the console to work this page may be of help.
We are pleased to announce availability of Beta software for 16.6.3. 16.6.3 will be the second rebuild on the 16.6 release train targeted towards Catalyst 9500/9400/9300/3850/3650 switching platforms. We are looking for early feedback from custome...
