Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.2 looping during boot

This is only a small post about a problem that I experienced few days ago. For one customer I deployed Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.2 virtual machine under Vmware and when I started the virtual machine and connected to the console I was presented with this information:

Prime-Boot

The Prime Infrastructure appliance was looping in the boot process. The solution to this problem for me was:

  1. Download Prime Infrastructure ISO file from cisco.com site.
  2. Upload the ISO file to vmware datastore
  3. During the nex reboot of Prime Infrastructure virtual appliance boot the downloaded ISO
  4. Perform a fresh installation using the ISO. This fresh installation will refornat the existing installation and after this it works ok.

 

I found this solution on Cisco Support Community (https://supportforums.cisco.com/document/111301/ncs-boot-loop-ade-os-vmdk-recovery). Thanks to Gadi he saved my day 😉
