MC3200 failed CF card

  • 1.  MC3200 failed CF card

    Posted Dec 18, 2020 05:41 AM

    Hello

    I have a school with an old Meru AP320, AP300 and MC3200 setup. The usual story, they have no money to replace the system and are desperate to get back up and running. The CF card in the 3200 has failed. It won't even show the linux recovery option on boot. I have connected over serial, etc, etc.

    I have a new 4GB CF card which I just tried to flash the recovery image onto it (meru-7.0-10-0-MC3200_recovery_root.img), but this did not work. After doing a bit of digging I think this recovery image is designed to be used not with a blank CF card but when the original CF card is still functional and will at least boot into the linux recovery partition? 

    Does an image exist that is suitable for flashing onto a brand new card, please?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. They are hoping to replace the system next year and any goodwill from Fortinet will go a long way, I'm sure! 

    Thanks

    Stuart

    Just to let you know, I found another thread detailing a similar issue on an MC4200. I thought I'd give that image a go and do I downloaded it and then dd'd it to a new CF card. I installed it into the MC3200 and booted into linux recovery and then ftp'd the regular meru-7.0-10-0-MC3200_recovery_root.img.gz image down and that seemed to unpack and now the MC3200 is booting up fine. I've upgraded to meru-7.0-15build-0-MC3200-rpm.tar and the school's access points are hopefully just minutes away from being back online. 

    Thank you for posting the recovery image, which appears to have done the trick for me.

    Hi Stuart

    Where did you get the recovery image, I had exactly the same issue on a MC3200, We had to replace the Box but I would still like to get the original up and running

    Hello I also have a MC3200 that won't start. I need to get the firmware image for it. Anybody have something in the 8.x.x range that they could share.

    Hi Dustin

    I was given this by Chami
    Please see attached images below for the MC1550. I hope this helps you.

    it seems to work but I was having trouble telnetting into the device. This seems to be a reoccurring issue with these devices. We replaced it but I am still working on ours although with no big urgency

    Hello Tony,
    This is almost what I need. I just have a MC3200 and not a MC1550, do you have that one? Thanks for the reply.

    Hey Tony,
    Thanks for the response. Those are exactly what I need, but when I click on the links they say expired so I am unable to download.

    Thanks
