Botting the NBX over the net

Botting the NBX over the net

This page is here since there is a total lack of online support from 3com.

The NBX can be booted over the net in some cases. The inital boot loader must be present so some sort of disk must exist but this might give hints how ti get a sick unit back online.

This assumes that the server at 192.168.1.1 has an ftp server running and it allows user "nbx" to log in with password "password" and that there is an boot image called "vxWorks" in their home directory. That image can be found in the R3_0_13.taz file which can be decoded with winzip or tar.

boot device          : cs    Entered as cs0
unit number          : 0
processor number     : 0
host name            : nbx
file name            : vxWorks
inet on ethernet (e) : 192.168.1.191
inet on backplane (b): 192.168.1.190
host inet (h)        : 192.168.1.1
gateway inet (g)     : 192.168.1.1
user (u)             : nbx
ftp password (pw)    : password
flags (f)            : 0x0
To boot off the disk use this:
boot device          : ata    Entered as ata0
unit number          : 0
processor number     : 0
host name            : nbx
file name            : R3_0_13/vxWorks
inet on ethernet (e) : 
inet on backplane (b): 
host inet (h)        : 
gateway inet (g)     : 
user (u)             : 
ftp password (pw)    : 
flags (f)            : 0x0
