C3/B3-Series has OSPF Errors and Won't Boot after Upgrade from pre-6.03 to 6.61 Firmware

Userlevel 3
Article ID: 14942


Upgraded from pre-6.03 firmware (in the range of 1.00.78 through directly to firmware or higher.

Though release notes, KB 14480, and KB 14711 recommend against this, the only expected symptom is possible configuration loss.
But in addition, such a direct upgrade could leave the unit unable to boot, as explained further below.

The upgraded uniit will no longer fully boot up.
It continually reboots.

Pre-diagnosis, while the unit is still failing to boot, an error sequence similar to what is shown below may be seen in a serial console session. Details will vary, but the common elements citing task "OSPF mapping Task" and "File:ospf_migrate.c Line:236 Component:27" should be present. The issue has nothing to do with whether or not OSPF is actually configured.

Use serial management to enter the boot menu, and restore the unit's configuration to factory defaults (see the solution in 9673).
Then, if a 6.61 configuration is not available as a new starting point, any desired configuration will need to be re-entered manually.
