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:
The Prime Infrastructure appliance was looping in the boot process. The solution to this problem for me was:
- Download Prime Infrastructure ISO file from cisco.com site.
- Upload the ISO file to vmware datastore
- During the nex reboot of Prime Infrastructure virtual appliance boot the downloaded ISO
- 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 😉
