Question about Nokia IP 350 Firewall
I have a Nokia IP350 firewall appliance running IPSO 3.7. I have to upgrade this to Nokia IPSO 4.2.
I have started the process by accessing the bootmgr after a reboot. I issued the "install" command and it has prompted me for a password. All personnel that might have known the password have moved. I found several solutions which suggested removing the hard drive, doing a dd copy of the nkipflash.bin file and the result is now the bootmgr has been hosed. At the current time, the bootmge prompt does appear but only after I receive the following on the console:
/dev/wd0f on /mnt: Incorrect super block
Error: /image on /dev/wd0f
does not exist or is not a file
umount: /mnt: not currently mounted
Any help would be appreciated.
Well.. i managed to get "NOKIA IPSO BOOTMGR VERSION=3.7.1-BUILD004 11.06.2003-010000" recovered from a broken ip350 HDD and copied onto a working (20GB IDE) HDD. (note: i understand it "has" to be a 20GB!)
I used the "HDD raw copy tool" from HDDGURU (nice... there is a portable version so you don't have to install it) to recover about 15MB from the beginning of the broken HDD (find the image here: hotfile.com/dl/134722000/d1a212f/nokiaIP350bootmgr.imgc.html).
With the HDD raw copy tool i was then also able to copy the image onto the new HDD.
I'm not sure if it's really necessary, but before i copied the image onto the new disk, I did create two partitions on it (via fdisk on a linux machine):
partition1 starts at block1, size 4MB, type A5, partition2 using rest of drive type A6.
I have yet to install an IPOS image (don't have one), but with the new disk i can boot bootmgr fine and it allows for the "install" command ;)
hope it helps someone...

Have you tried the steops below
1. Get the IPSO image you want to install.
2. Copy it to an internal host capable of FTP.
3. Connect to the console on the IP130 and start it up, when you
get past the bootmanager part where it shows the prompt
BOOTMGR>install then ftp or help a few other commands
4. The interactive prompts should help you figure out what to do (like assign it an IP and ftp to the server).
5. Let it install the image and reboot.
