Not supported by SBC SWe Lite in this release.
This operation allows you to load new software into the Recovery partition of the ASM. There are a number of reasons why you would want to do this:
This operation does not actually erase, replace or load the ASM software itself - it only updates the recovery partition. To apply an image installed here, see Re-initializing the ASM.
In addition, you will need to obtain:
Select NTFS from the File system dropdown, and click Start.
Make sure that the image file is not located in a subdirectory of the flash drive.
Updating the ASM Recovery Partition on the SBC 2000- directly plug it into the USB Port for the ASM.
The Administrative IP port should be used for Running Initial Setup, as well as all management related functionality from the web browser.
Application Ethernet Ports
When two or more LAN Ethernet ports are on the same Bridge (as in the factory-default Ribbon SBC 1000/2000 configuration), they must not be connected to the same Ethernet switch or Ethernet network. Doing so creates a broadcast loop in the Ethernet network, rendering the network unusable. You may work around this issue by connecting the Ethernet ports directly to an intelligent switch or router running a spanning tree protocol.
Updating the ASM Recovery Partition on the SBC 1000- directly plug it into the USB Port for the ASM.
The SBC Edge 1000 front panel includes two pairs of USB ports.
These ports are used to attach an external USB drive to store core dumps for troubleshooting and as a survivability mechanism for Active Directory Caching (when configured). See Support section below for proper usage.
(in Fig. 4)
If your SBC Edge 1000 has a built-in Application Service Module (ASM), this USB port is primarily used for Updating the ASM Recovery Partition, and to (optionally) transfer files between a USB drive and the ASM.
The following section is applicable only to the USB ports on location 2 on the SBC Edge 1000 front panel.
For the SBC Edge to properly recognize the USB thumb drive, you must ensure the following prerequisites are satisfied:
Click the Apply button to begin the installation of the new image.
Loading and installing the new image can take up to 10 minutes.
Wait for the following message to be displayed:
The Recovery partition has now been updated.
In most cases, updating the recovery partition should not require re-initializing the ASM. Updating the recovery partition as part of an upgrade to SBC firmware in order to keep the Application Solution Module (ASM) in step with the current SBC code version does not require re-initializing the ASM. If you do re-initialize to apply the image you just installed, the ASM task restores the ASM to an unconfigured state, and replaces all software and settings with the image in the Recovering partition of the ASM. See Re-initializing the ASM for specific information.
