BSR2000 Boot Issue

We have a BSR2000 that is no longer booting:

Start application from FLASH:
Booting image appImage_100P4904TRCU.bin
ataFileGet: read error!
doAppImageValidate: can not get flash (ata) appImage appImage_100P4904TRCU.bin!
cmtsDecompExtApp: doAppImageValidate failed for file appImage_100P4904TRCU.bin
No valid application image on compact flash

I have the bin file on a TFTP server, and would like to recopy it to the BSR2000. How would I set up the boot parameters to do this?

In addition, where can one

In addition, where can one obtain manuals for the BSR2000? Was unable to find them on the Motorola site...


remove the flash card, put into a pc and copy it over that way...
as for other information, post your email

Got it working. Will provide

Got it working. Will provide details later. Question though: should the app .bin file be on nvram or flash? And where should it be booting from?

What goes where..

In general, nvram would hold the boot or image for the unit. you'll see a few other things like the startup config.
Flash would be your backup of startup config, image and so on. can also boot from flash (recommend from nvram). here would also be the log file and copy of bootrom. not needed once it's been upgraded.

BSR2000 - BootRom

Carl - We're in the same boat, can I please ask you to sned me ( ) a copy of the latest BootRom for a BSR2000? You appear to be a knowledgable guy here.

The fix...

I used the c command to configure the boot parameters, then the H command to load the image into flash. You need to customize to suit your network: hostname is the tftp server, b.b.b.b is the IP for the BSR2000 (set your mask appropriately... our config needed a class C mask of, thus ffffff00) , h.h.h.h is the IP of the tftp server, g.g.g.g is the IP of the gateway, hostuserid/hostpassword for the tftp server (although I'm not sure if this is required). Our targetname is swbsr2xxx, but not sure that is required either. After the H command completed, it tells you to use the D command to decompress and execute it. Worked like a charm.

[VxWorks Boot]: H
boot device : marfec
unit number : 1
processor number : 0

Attached TCP/IP interface to marfec1.
Loading Application Image...
netLoadAppImage: read 0x0041b17a bytes
netLoadAppImage: application image checksum = 0xde9e6ae1

netLoadAppImage: successful!

New appImage loaded. Change boot dev to FLASH: and type D to run it.

Simply turn the unit off. remove the flash card, with a pc, copy the image onto the flash card and plug it back into the BSR.
set it to boot from flash with the new image
