  • 1.  EX2300 Loader Prompt

    Posted 02-10-2023 14:05

    I seem to have messed up an EX2300 switch while trying to factory default it.  I zeroized it instead, and not when it reboots it goes to the loader prompt.  

    I can modify the currdev variable and get the switch to boot into the OS, but when it reboots that change does not stay.  

    I cannot seem to modify the loaddev variable to set it to the correct partition. 

    Does anyone know how I could get this to stick?

    From the loader prompt you can try the format install process outlined in this kb article.

    I have indeed tried following those instructions.

    It does not seem to matter, the switch will not load with the partition that contains the OS on a reboot.
