Upgrade on GridDirector 4200 failed, spine cards continually reboot

We wanted to repurpose a GridDirector 4200 and recently tried to update the firmware because we couldn’t get mpi operations to work over IB. When we rebooted the switch none of the spine cards (3) and 2 of the 5 line cards are not responding. I have enough line cards for my purposes but without the spine cards I’m out of business.

Looking at the spine cards, there are a lot of jumpers. I am wondering if there may be a jumper setting that would reset the cards to some type of default condition that would permit me to attempt to reflash the firmware.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Joe

No jumper setting but it is important to understand what version of code you had on there and what version you were upgrading to. In some cases an interim version is required for FW on cards to update properly.
