Using the Recovery CD-ROM
Obtaining Technical Assistance
This release note describes how to use the recovery CD-ROM to re-image a DPE-590 device. It contains the complete instruction set you must follow to re-install the original software image supplied on the DPE-590. After completing the recovery CD-ROM procedure, you must reconfigure the DPE-590 with the same configuration setting used on the previous DPE.
Step 1 Locate a Solaris computer that can export directories by means of Network File Sharing (NFS). Once you have identified this computer, share the DPE-590 directory of the recovery CD-ROM. To do this:
|Note In the examples provided in this procedure, release identifies the BPR release number being used. For example, if you are operating with BPR 2.0.3, then you would enter 203 at this location.|
Step 2 Verify that the DPE is properly connected to the network and then use a terminal emulator program to connect to the console port on the DPE. Regardless of which emulator you use, you must configure these emulator settings: 9600 baud, 8 bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and use hardware flow control.
Step 3 Verify that the DPE-590 is properly connected to the network and turn the power on.
Step 4 Press i within 5 seconds of the System Now Booting or the Booting CE From Flash message appearing on the screen. After approximately one minute the bash boot prompt appears.
Step 5 Enter this command at the bash prompt:
Step 6 Identify the IP address and subnet mask you will assign to the DPE. For example purposes, assume these are 10.10.10.1 and 255.255.255.0, respectively.
Step 7 Enter this command:
Step 8 Determine whether a default gateway is needed to connect to the NFS server. Assume that the IP address of this gateway is 10.20.20.2 and enter this command:
Step 9 Determine the IP address of the NFS server containing the DPE-590 recovery CD (assume this to be 10.20.30.4) and the shared directory name (assume this to be /cdrom/bpr_release_dpe-590/DPE-590).
Step 10 Enter this command:
|Note These warning messages may appear when you run the mount command:
nfs warning: mount version newer than kernel
nfs_read_super: get root fattr failed
Step 11 Enter this command to install the recovery image onto the DPE-590:
|Note While this command is running, a considerable amount of information is displayed on screen. The command is complete when the bash prompt re-appears.|
Step 12 Enter this command to verify that the image has been installed correctly:
Step 13 Enter these commands to complete the imaging:
Step 14 Power cycle the DPE-590 and reconfigure it with the previous DPE configuration settings. Refer to the Broadband Provisioning Registrar Installation Guide for additional information.
Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a Cisco Documentation CD-ROM package, which is shipped with your product. The Documentation CD-ROM is updated monthly and may be more current than printed documentation. The CD-ROM package is available as a single unit or through an annual subscription.
If you are reading Cisco product documentation on Cisco.com, you can submit technical comments electronically. Click Leave Feedback at the bottom of the Cisco Documentation home page. After you complete the form, print it out and fax it to Cisco at 408 527-0730.
Cisco provides Cisco.com as a starting point for all technical assistance. Customers and partners can obtain documentation, troubleshooting tips, and sample configurations from online tools by using the Cisco Technical Assistance Center (TAC) Web Site. Cisco.com registered users have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site.
Cisco.com is the foundation of a suite of interactive, networked services that provides immediate, open access to Cisco information, networking solutions, services, programs, and resources at any time, from anywhere in the world.
The Cisco TAC is available to all customers who need technical assistance with a Cisco product, technology, or solution. Two types of support are available through the Cisco TAC: the Cisco TAC Web Site and the Cisco TAC Escalation Center.
- Priority level 4 (P4)You need information or assistance concerning Cisco product capabilities, product installation, or basic product configuration.
- Priority level 3 (P3)Your network performance is degraded. Network functionality is noticeably impaired, but most business operations continue.
- Priority level 2 (P2)Your production network is severely degraded, affecting significant aspects of business operations. No workaround is available.
- Priority level 1 (P1)Your production network is down, and a critical impact to business operations will occur if service is not restored quickly. No workaround is available.
The Cisco TAC Web Site allows you to resolve P3 and P4 issues yourself, saving both cost and time. The site provides around-the-clock access to online tools, knowledge bases, and software. To access the Cisco TAC Web Site, go to the following URL:
All customers, partners, and resellers who have a valid Cisco services contract have complete access to the technical support resources on the Cisco TAC Web Site. The Cisco TAC Web Site requires a Cisco.com login ID and password. If you have a valid service contract but do not have a login ID or password, go to the following URL to register:
The Cisco TAC Escalation Center addresses issues that are classified as priority level 1 or priority level 2; these classifications are assigned when severe network degradation significantly impacts business operations. When you contact the TAC Escalation Center with a P1 or P2 problem, a Cisco TAC engineer will automatically open a case.
Before calling, please check with your network operations center to determine the level of Cisco support services to which your company is entitled; for example, SMARTnet, SMARTnet Onsite, or Network Supported Accounts (NSA). In addition, please have available your service agreement number and your product serial number.
