Use the following steps to revert to the previous version of firmware: 1. Connect a serial cable to the Setup port on the rear panel of the MergePoint Unity switch. 2. Run a terminal program on the PC connected to the Setup port. The serial port settings should be: 9600 baud, 8 data bits, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no flow control. 3. Power on the MergePoint Unity switch. 4. In the terminal program, when the “Hit any key to stop autoboot” prompt appears, press any key. 5. A menu should now be displayed on the terminal program, select “Boot Alternate” by entering 1 and hitting enter. 6. The MergePoint Unity switch will then reboot to the previous firmware version automatically.
