A9K-RSP-4G and A9K-RSP-8G tftp timeout from rommon
We have two A9K-RSP-4G and another pair of A9K-RSP-8G processors. We are unable to boot tftp from rommon to either the 4G or the 8G processors. We have tftp booted RSP-440's many times with the same laptops with no issues.
We have tried:
3 different laptops and different network drivers.
3 different TFTP servers, solarwinds, tftpd32, and tftp64
We have tried different network interface speeds, 10M/half-duplex, 1G auto negotiate, etc.
We are using manufactured CAT6 Ethernet cables and have tried several.
We have tried MGT LAN 0 and 1 on each RSP.
This is an example of the message we receive:
Mgt LAN 0 interface is selected tsec_init_hw: configuring FE (port 1) for: Auto Speed, Auto Duplex
Have you tried some of the additional steps in this doc such as disabling the CPU watchdog and changing TFTP values (timeout, retries, etc) https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/123576/asr9000xr-understanding-turboboot-and-initial-system-bring
Also email me the SR number and I can take a look at any additional outputs in the case (email is my userid).
We worked with TAC for several days and did not find a resolution. We had plans to replace the 4G and 8G processors with RSP440's and decided to not waste any further time trying to fix this. We moved forward with the 440's instead. Sorry no answer here. Good Luck!
