The following procedure describes how to reinstall the ConnexIP OS:
Log on to the SBC BMC GUI.

The Console Redirection window is displayed.
Click Java Console. The JViewer window is displayed.
Select Media > Virtual Media Wizard in the JViewer. The Virtual Media screen appears.
Click Browse in the CD/DVD Media 1 section.
From the Open dialog, browse to and select the sbc- <sbc_version>-connexip-os_<version>_amd64.iso file and click Open. This mounts the ISO image from your local desktop or laptop.
Click Connect CD/DVD. A message,
Device redirected in Read Only Mode, appears on the screen.
Click OK to continue. This mounts the ISO image from your local desktop or laptop.
On the SBC BMC GUI, navigate to Remote Control > Server Power Control. The Power Control and Status window is displayed.
Observe that the "Host is currently on" message is in the window.
Select Power Off Server-Orderly Shutdown option and click Perform Action. This action brings the SBC host down.
Once the SBC host is down, from the same location, select Power On Server and click Perform Action. This action powers on and reboots the SBC host.
Once the BMC is up and running, access the JViewer window.
Press <DEL> or <F2> immediately, when the splash screen appears.
Select AMI Virtual CDROM0 1.00 from the Save & Exit menu to boot from the virtual CD drive.
Press <Enter>. This instructs the server to boot from the redirected ConnexIP OS ISO image.
Select Install in the Sonus ConnexIP Installer Boot menu and press <Enter> to start the installation.
The automated installation process starts. This process takes approximately 30 to 40 minutes.
Once the installation is complete, the disk-partition upgrade starts. At this stage, DO NOT power off the system.
After the disk-partition process, the SBC reboots.
Once the system reboots, the ConnexIP login screen appears on the screen.
This concludes the ConnexIP OS installation/re-installation process.
