4210 - ASSERT: SubBoards mismatch

Hi,



Just unpacked a 4210 52-port switch (3CR17334-91) and decided to upgrade it to the latest firmware V3.01.09. I managed to upload OS V3.01.09s56 and Bootrom V4.06. This all went well. But, when I use the built-in web page I get "ASSERT: SubBoards mismatch." and the Device View now displays "3Com Switch 4210 52-Port Software Version 3Com OS V3.01.09s56: Device Unrecognized."



Any ideas? Or should I roll it back to V3.01.05?



Thanks



Mike

I restored the 4210 switch to OS V3.01.05s56 using s4o03_01_05s56.app and s4p01_04.web.



Plus I had to clear my browser cache.

Re: 4210 - ASSERT: SubBoards mismatch

I have the same problem, but it didn't work with any of the download-able firmwares.



I tried 3.1.10 first, then 3.1.9, then 3.1.4 then 3.1.5.

Both tries were 56 bit DES firmwares, and one more other (don't know which version) with 168-bit.



I also upgraded the boot ROM to the latest (4.0.7).

No luck.



I always used the package shipped web interface.



What else can I possibly do to (re)gain access to the web interface?



Unfortunately the flash can not hold two app file, so I had to delete the original one, and I didn't backed it up before the upgrade. (the first two upgrade went fine with 26 port switches)



Thanks in advance,

Atus
