Hi,
Is it possible for you to upgrade software via XModem?

Re: J9772A Aruba 2530 48G PoE+ Switch boot fails

Hi, 
I have tried Xmodem, uploaded diffrent version from the latest one to the closest version as it was recommended, but I think this is no the case becuase I have delete all the data in cat0 so it will not boot. 

I wonder if there is image file to import the configuration for the boot?

Hello,

It seems flash is correupted but before going for replacement you can give a try to recover it.

--Are you getting any option to boot from secondary image? If yes try to boot from secondary flash.

--Do you remeber what was the running software version into device?

Try to copy the same into switch via XModem.  Refer some steps:

Thanks for your replay,

Yes I have tried to boot from primary and secondary give me the same error message. only monitoring opetion 0 works.

I doubt if the flash currepted becuase it was working fine till erased cat0/ files. 

and yes i have backup the swi image before the fomat. I have tried it as well but no thing new.

The strange thing is now it give me the version Version: YA.15.20. but this version dose not exsist even in the download page in main website.

Pay attention that YA.15.20 is the BootROM version, it is not the ArubaOS-Switch (or HP ProVision) operating system version even if the naming looks similar. There is a relationship between the BootROM version an HPE Aruba Switch requires for (or, better, from) running a particular software version of its ArubaOS-Switch operating system.

I haven't the exact matrix between each BootROM version and each ArubaOS-Switch (or HP ProVision) software version BUT, giving that YA.15.20 is provided and required by ArubaOS-Switch YA.16.10.xxxx build, then you should be able to use also the latest YA.16.10.0013 software build released for Aruba 2530 Switch series in your recover attempts with swi files.
