WLC 2006 won't boot

Greetings all!

Over the weekend one of my engineers 'broke' a 2006 WLC. He was attempting an upgrade (kinda fuzzy on the details) and now when it boots, the console shows:

[ Minimal BASH-like line editing is supported. For the first word, TAB

lists possible command completions. Anywhere else TAB lists the possible

completions of a device/filename. ]

grub>

I called TAC and they want to RMA the unit but that will take 10+ days. Does anyone have any information regarding how to recover this box? I don't care about the old config, etc. but would like to not have a controller down for that period of time.

Many thanks in advance!

Re: WLC 2006 won't boot

It is either looking for an image to boot and can't find one or the boot config has been wiped. do a google search on grub commands.

grub is the most recent & common boot loader for linux systems. If the image is still there, there may be a way to bring up the controller and hopefully recover. you don't have nbd smartnet on the controller?
