nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.7 not booting upon 2nd boot

Post by kalipinde » Sat Feb 22, 2020 10:26 pm

Hi,

I have a bare metal install of Eve community on a server with spec:

288GB RAM and 2 x Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU E5-2690 0 @ 2.90GHz

I followed the instructions as per https://www.eve-ng.net/index.php/docume ... 0v-switch/ to add a 9k image nxosv9k-7.0.3.I7.7.

When I add the node for the first time and boot it up it works fine (I have set the boot command to boot nxos bootflash:nxos.7.0.3.I7.7.bin). However now I'm getting an issue where it seems to crash on boot up when reloading (it doesn't even get to a boot loader).

I have attached a screenshot where the last error mentions "Find PE Image /......" etc.

Any ideas? If I add a new node and follow the process to set the boot command it works but it seems to be an issue when the node is rebooted.

Thanks in advance!

Thank you. I had done copy run start so maybe it's a corrupt image. When setting up a new node it boots up fine so the template image must be fine. Maybe I'll find something in some Eve-NG log files.

After some playing around the issue was that I was using actual physical switch software instead of the virtual equivalent (Nexus 9000v)

nxosv-final.7.0.3.I7.7.qcow2 works fine.

Thanks.
