Dell X1018P - Revert image-1 to active using CLI, after failed firmware update

Hi all,

Tried to update firmware to 3.0.1.9 using the admin GUI, but it failed and haven't been able to logon since despite factory reset.

Have noticed via CLI that the active image is firmware version 3.0.1.9 and the startup-config is also pointing to this:

------------------ show bootvar ------------------
Image Filename Version Date Status
----- --------- --------- --------------------- -----------
1 image-1 3.0.0.64 25-Feb-2015 09:05:11 Not active
2 image-2 3.0.1.9 12-Oct-2021 11:42:18 Active*

startup-config:

config-file-header

v3.0.1.9 / RASTUTE_800_021
CLI v1.0
set system mode L2
policy-based-vlans active

 

Is there any way I can switch back to select image-1 for the next boot using CLI?

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

Normally this asterisk "*" belongs to the not active image and it indicates that the image will be run on the next reboot. I haven't been able to find a way to change that from here at the moment. But can you try to restore your backup from here? https://dell.to/3faQcjI;

Thanks for the link, but those steps are for the admin console, which I cannot access since the failed firmware upgrade. I haven't been able to find equivalent CLI instructions.

FlashJ,

 

I am not sure that is an option due to being limited on what you can do on the  X Series switches. In your case, what I would recommend is that you either replace or factory reset then reinstall again.

 

Let me know if that resolves the issue.

Hi Chris, thanks for your reply. I have tried to factory reset, but the switch still loads the later software version and not the factory version, see below:
