Problem upgrading JunOS on EX-4200F

‎03-21-2014 06:50 AM

Hi techs,

I had a trouble when I tried to upgrade JunOS on EX-4200F.

 

The u-boot is indefinitely cycling and I have no idea on how I can fix it. After check a lot of forums I didn't found any solution.

 

 

U-Boot 1.1.6 (Feb 6 2008 - 11:27:42)

Board: EX4200-24F 2.7
EPLD: Version 6.1 (0x85)
DRAM: Initializing (1024 MB)
FLASH: 8 MB
USB: scanning bus for devices... 2 USB Device(s) found
scanning bus for storage devices... 1 Storage Device(s) found

Consoles: U-Boot console
Found compatible API, ver. 7

FreeBSD/PowerPC U-Boot bootstrap loader, Revision 2.1
(marcelm@apg-bbuild01.juniper.net, Wed Feb 6 11:23:55 PST 2008)
Memory: 1024MB
Waiting for PHY auto negotiation to complete...... TIMEOUT !
Waiting for PHY realtime link...... TIMEOUT !
done
eTSEC0: No link.

panic: uboot_eth0: initialisation failed.

--> Press a key on the console to reboot <--
Rebooting...

Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

Connect to console port. Reboot device

Press the spacebar as soon as the system starts to boot, after about 3-5 lines have been displayed. You want to stop the boot process so it drops you at this loader prompt
=>
Enter the following commands:
=> setenv ipaddr 10.210.24.229
=> setenv netmask 255.255.255.0
=> setenv gatewayip 192.168.168.1
=> setenv serverip 10.210.24.226
=> saveenv
At this point you have two options:
1- enter reset, then allow the system to reboot or enter continue, and wait till you see this:
Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf
Hit the space bar as soon as you this line and enter the install command as follows.
loader>install  tftp://10.210.24.226junos-srxsme-12.1X44-D10.4-domestic.tgz

 

Of course you will enter your own IP addresses. I don't need gateway, if you need enter correct gateway

Thanks for your help, lyndidon.

 

I have fixed this trouble using KB27255 and KB20643.

I have this same problem, but could not get into the loader prompt.

 

 

Stuck here:

When a USB thumbdrive is inserted, the output is like this:

I never make it to the loader screen. I attempted to press ctrl+c during boot time, but this did not make a difference.

 

Is there anything I'm missing on this?

 

Thanks for any help!

Hi dmg

Do you read KB that posted diesaa?

KB27255 describe how to get to loader if standard procedure does not work.
