FLASH Update Failure Recovery
=============================================================
If after a FLASH procedure, the switch does not boot into the new firmware
version, it is possible to revert to the previous firmware version. 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.
