Partition the CPPM FMD
If you experience Fixed Media Device (FMD) errors, it will need to be re-formatted and partitioned.
In a HA system, split the cores first, and work on one side at a time to not interrupt service.
To partition the Fix Media Device (FMD):
- Make sure you have a serial TTY connection to the Call Server (CPPM card).
- Insert the CS1000 Software Installation flash card (NTM443CA) in the CPPM faceplate drive.
- Press the CPPM card's Reset button.
- Press f when prompted to boot from the faceplate flash card.
After a short period, the Main Menu should appear.
