    Restoring a System from a System Repair Drive

    Use this procedure to bring a system back to a known state and a known software load. It can also be used to install new software in situations where network-based methods cannot be used.

    Caution: This procedure erases all software, configuration, and commissioning data from the CMMs, and is service affecting.


    1. Unseat the sole CMM in a single-CMM chassis, or both CMMs in a dual-CMM chassis.
    2. Follow the procedure in Installing a Software Load on a CMM Using a System Repair Drive to install the desired software load onto one of the CMMs.
    3. Repeat 1 and 2 for the second CMM.
    4. Seat both CMMs and commission the system.

      For details on how to do this, see Commissioning the BTI7800.

    5. Upgrade the CMM firmware if needed.

      See Upgrading the CMM Firmware for instructions on how to determine if a firmware upgrade is required, and how to upgrade the firmware.

    6. Perform a cold reload of all modules in the system.

      Log in to the CLI and reboot the system.
