    Hi James,

    What System Director version did you need? Depending on how corrupt it is you make need to remove the compact flash card,  re-image it using WinImage + a controller image file. you have a backup or can reconfigure it.

    Kind Regards,
    John

    Hi John,

    My MC4200 stopped working and I have an yellow LED next to HDD on the face of the unit. So i am guessing the memory card went belly up.
    I am not sure which version of system director I need, I am using AP320s with the MC4200 so what ever version would work best with these APs.

    i dont have a backup, so i will try to reconfigure once i get it restarted.

    Thanks for the quick reponse.

    Hi James,

    No worries, please download the image file below via the Fortinet Egnyte link. It's the latest MC4200 image compatible with the AP320 being SD 7.0-13.
    You'll need to open up the MC4200, remove the compact flash card, connect it to your PC and use an imaging tool, such as Win-Image to load the image file onto the compact flash card.
    Once complete, you can then put the card back into the MC4200 and it should boot up ok. Then run setup via CLI etc.

    Hi John

    I have same problem in a Master-Slave setup. MC4200 - master with broken CF kart, AP 332, AP320 (and AP311) Access points.

    Can you help me with the image file for 5.3-50, so I can get back to running config.

    (Before maybe an upgrade to 7.0.13)

    Hi Ole,

    Sure here's a copy of the SD 5.3-50 image file for the MC4200.

    Once complete, you can then put the card back into the MC4200 and it should boot up ok. Then run setup via CLI and restore you backup-config.

    I can't help you with the upgrade to SD 7.0-13 as this is a supported version so needs to be obtained via the Fortinet support portal. 

    Regards,
    John

    Hi John

    Thanks for the help, I'm now up and running in test. Small problem, what to do with controller serial number and AP lic licenses.
    (I have lic files)
    I can't immediately find anything on the topic on the web.

    Regards Ole

    Hi Ole,

    Controller System ID/Serial number will not change as this is hardcoded into the Controller BIOS. License files should be able to be reimported or you can restore the backup which contains these. If you have done this backup?

    If you are running SD 7.0-13 license file no longer required. The appliance will support the full capacity of access points i.e. 500 AP's without the need for license files.

    Kind Regards,
    John Battam

    Do you have an image for the 1550? Our controllers crashes everytime we try to upgrade. Thank you.

    Yes, I am also looking for MC1550 image. Thanks.

    8.3.3 would be great if you got it.

    Hi Dustin,

    I have uploaded a copy of the firmware image for you as below.

    Note that this is the full image so is a large file ~2GB.

    Hi Claes,

    The linux recovery login is just admin / admin, but note this is a separate process to what we're discussing here.

    The recovery image file is loaded via TFTP, the image file provided above is to re-flash the CF card using an imaging tool.

    If you need the recovery image file instead, let me know.

    Regards,
    Mark

    Great and thanks!

    Now the only thing I need is the login and password to the recovery in a 6.x version of our MC1550. Having that I'd be able to repair two more controllers…

    Awesome, thanks. So I just need take the cover off, pull out the CF card and reimage it now right.

    Do you happen to have any resources on how to write the image to a CF card using WinImage?  When I mount the IMG file that you linked to, it has 6 different partitions.

    Also, I tried to backup our CF card using WinImage and it created a VHD file.  Do you know where the configuration file is saved for the controller?  We aren't able to locate our backup.

    Thank you for any assistance you can give!

    Hello,

    I have a problem, corrupted card, but from screenshot pics I see the version 8.1-3-2 for MC4200. I downloaded 7 something image, but I thought that how do I update it back to the version where it was. I have only 832e APs.

    I would be happy if you could help me. Thank you in advance!

    Hello Matti,

    It is unclear to me what release you actually require.

    Please confirm your controller model and the required firmware version and I'll see what I can do.

    Regards,

    Mark

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you for your fast response. My controller is MERU MC4200 and the latest login to webmanagement showed version 8.1-3-2. If that isn't the same as firmware version, then I don't know what firmware version there was before failure.

    Hi Matti,

    I have retrieved and uploaded the IMG file for an MC4200 with 8.1.3-2 firmware, link is below.

    meru-8.1-3-2-MC4200.img
    Password: o3Fn9rtm
    https://fortinet.egnyte.com/dl/SQWOs8Tvwo

    Let me know once you have retrieved the file.

    Note it is ~2GB in size.

    You'll need to pop out the CF card and write the image to it, then reinsert and restore your config.

    Best Regards,
    Mark

    Hello Mark,

    Thank you so much of your help! I have now downloaded that image.

    At first I wrote with some earlier image yesterday, but controller said that there's no bootable disk in the system. After that I couldn't write that CF card anymore, so I think it's dead now. I ordered some industry versions of 4G CF cards, they have a slightly different writing speed (160 Mb/s) than in the original one 150 Mb/s, but I suppose it doesn't matter. I will post if something pops up (aka goes wrong).
