SUJIT1215

Hi Guys, we have old Fas2020 in our lab.The login password was lost so i tried to go in the special boot menu to reset the password. I am connecting through a serial cable. I tried doing a power on/off several times of the netapp but it is stuck at the BMC login prompt screen. I tried running the below commands in the BMC login and below is the output. Please help..

Press ^G to enter BMC command shell

pre-init time           [bmc.asup.queue:err]: Too many outstanding, undelivered AutoSupport messages - throttling.  *******THIS IS WHERE IT IS STUCK********

Can you try to ping the main IP,

Try ssh/telnet are you getting a login prompt?

Re: Fas2020 not booting,stuck at BMC login

The ping to the main IP is failing. (Request timed out)

I am not able to ssh/telnet.

I believe you will see the boot process now and option to enter special boot menu.

Re: Fas2020 not booting,stuck at BMC login
