By default, a new Amino box should automatically pick up it's firmware once it has been correctly added in Infoblox, via the 'software_uri' DHCP option (see this article for details); however if there happens to be an issue with multicast you may need to install the firmware manually instead.
If the firmware hasn't picked up, you may notice that the new box circles around in a boot-loop, and you may see a '2 3' error displayed; this means that the firmware failed to install.
To manually install the firmware, follow these steps:
- Copy the firmware to a USB memory stick, into a folder called 'Amino' (the firmware can be obtained from Mark Daniels).
- Power off the Amino box if it is currently plugged in, also ensuring to disconnect the network cable.
- Insert the USB memory stick (with the power still off), and then hold down the small button on the back of the box. While holding this button down, power the box back on.
- Continue to hold down this button until the 'Amino' logo is displayed on screen; at this point you can then let go.
- You should then see a message indicating that the firmware is being installed; this can take a few minutes and the box may reboot a few times during this time.
- You can then reconnect the network cable and remove the USB memory stick; power-cycle the box once more to ensure it picks up the correct network settings from DHCP.
Once the firmware has been installed successfully, ensure that all of the settings in Infoblox are correct. The device should then appear within TripleCare once it has network connectivity and a valid firmware.
