Nexus 5000 loader problem

Hi all,

I have recently powered on my new Nexus 5596UP.  Haven't done much config, but restartet it twice.  The third time, it won't start up.

It comes to the loader> prompt.

Trying to do dir bootflash: og dir usb1: says Error 30: invaldig argument.  It looks like it doesn't know about the bootflash or usb.

I tried setting IP and GW, and issue boot tftp://ip-address-to-tftp-server/kickstart-filname-here, but it doesn't start downloading the kickstart bin file.

Any ideas what causes this problem?

Nexus 5000 loader problem

I checked in my lab Nexus 5500 which does not have card in its USB drive and see the same error. Can you try doing just a "dir"? and boot?

Nexus 5000 loader problem

Your switch sees this

loader> dir

slot0: <<<-----

My lab switches see this

loader> dir                                                                   

bootflash: <<---

I do not even see a slot0: Looks like you might need a replacement.

Nexus 5000 loader problem

Funny this one.  I opened a case with our vendor.  They came onsite, and did the same commands that I had done earlier.

I had also tried power it off/on in different ways.  When my vendor did the same, it startet with normal boot sequence and load software and config. Now it runs ok.  I have even rebooted it a couple of times after this, and now it seems to be working fine.  Expensive troubleshooting from my vendor there :-(
