10GB NAB blocks traffic after applying fw0343c3c

Technote (troubleshooting)


After aplying fw0343c3c to the 10GB NAB, the NAB blocks all traffic after the reboot.

Resolving the problem

After applying the update, you see the following error on boot when connected to the local console:

No valid version information of inventory structure

According to the manufacturer, this error means the NAB did not map to the correct hardware during the upgrade. To fix this, run the following command from the local console to get it to map correctly:

board_inv w n2818A-T 1 1 00:0c:bd:00:00:01 1 DS460r3

Finally, do a reboot. This should fix the issue.

Note: The above mac address is an internal address and is the same on all 10GB NABs.
