Netgate RCC-VE 2440 upgrade fails - "Can't find kernel"



  • Hi,

    I have a Netgate RCC-VE 2440 pfSense firewall. I tried upgrading the firmware from 2.2.6 to 2.3. It failed. I connected a USB cable, booted the box and got "can't find kernel." I'm happy to start over and reinstall from scratch but first I'd like to retrieve the configuration of the firewall. I inherited the firewall and prefer to not spend a ton of time figuring it out from scratch.

    This page gives instructions on how to install from a thumb drive.

    https://netgate.com/docs/rcc-ve-2440/centos.html

    But, I'd prefer to first boot from the thumb drive, retrieve the configuration, and then reinstall.

    Is there a way to do that?

    Thanks.



  • You can use the rescue config option in the installer to do the reinstall and keep the config.



  • Awesome, I will try that. Thank you!
