Install on NETASQ U30 S ?



  • Hi,

    I try to install pfsense on old Netasq U 30S.

    I'm note able to boot on my USB key. I make it with Rufus.

    When I select my drive to boot, router return error message :

    NETASQ USB Disk Fail
    Reboot and Select a proper Boot device
    

    Somebody have an idea ?


  • Netgate Administrator

    What hardware is in that device? Exactly what image are you using?

    Try using Etcher to write the image instead.

    Steve



  • >uname -p
    i386
    

    So I put "pfSense-CE-2.3.5-RELEASE-2g-i386-nanobsd-vga.img" on my USB stick with balena Etcher.

    The result is Always the same โ˜น โ˜น



  • I try to boot on my USB stick on old optiplex computer and it works.

    Is there a securry to avoid other OS installation?


  • Netgate Administrator

    There maybe some sort of boot lock but I've not seen that before on a Netasq, though I've not seen many.

    That image probably appears as a USB-HDD if you have a boot option for that.

    However that version is obsolete, unsupported, and that hardware is too if it's 32bit only. Do you know exactly what it is? What CPU? How much RAM etc?

    Steve



  • CPU : VIA Nano U3400@800Mhz RAM : 1G
    CPU seems to be 64 bit. I will try again with the last img (pfSense-CE-memstick-2.4.4-RELEASE-p3-amd64.img)



  • And is the same issue :(


  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, well it's not going to be fast but it is 64bit so should run 2.4.4.

    A long while back when I installed a U250S I could not make it boot from USB either and instead I installed it in a different machine and then moved the HD back into it. Since I did have console access I was able to re-assign the interfaces from there. They were dual igb NICs on that.
    Then came fun with the on-board switch, which that might also have.
    I was able to access it via the second com port at 19600bps just for reference.

    Edit: I see it's shown as having ports:

    5 (1+2x2 ports switch)
    

    So it may be configured as two interfaces by default. You may to need to do anything with the switch, though you might want to anyway. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    ๐Ÿ‘ as you said I installed it on other computer and moved back the HDD in the NETASQ

    On display I see 2 interfaces instead of 3. Is it normal ? (I 'm a verry beginner on PF sense ๐Ÿ˜ )


  • Netgate Administrator

    Yes, WAN and LAN is the default if it finds usable interfaces.

    Try using menu option 8 to drop to the command line and running ifconfig -vma to see all available interfaces and their capabilities.

    If you connect the WAN port to something running dhcp does it pull a lease on the WAN interface?

    Steve

    Ok, so no other interfaces. Or none detected and with drivers attached at least.

    One of the ports is up and that presumably how you're connecting. Which external port are you connected to?

    Do you have links on the other ports? The switch ports presumably.

    If you have a serial console connected now you could post the boot logs so we can see what else might be in there.

    The output of pciconf -lv might also be interesting.

    Steve



  • I m connected on port 1 of the switch via SSH. It's the LAN em0.

    I think i have not link on other ports (no LED flashing when i plug a cable).

    I havn't got serial adptator :(

    Probably not important, I also see that.

    So you are connected to port1 and the 4 stacked ports labelled 2 and 3 show no link, correct?

    Try this. At the command line run:
    cu -l /dev/cuau1 -s 19600
    Hit return see if you can see the switch interface.
    To escape the cu session hit return then type ~~.

  • It can be the cause?

    pci0: <network> at device 11.0 (no driver attached)
    

  • Netgate Administrator

    There is no driver that recognises it, that;s the device shown as none0 in the pciconf output.

    Ok I typo'd the baud rate! Try: cu -l /dev/cuau1 -s 19200

    If there's still nothing look in /dev to see if there are other serial ports.

  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, it's at 9600 on the U70: https://forum.netgate.com/post/882959

    Try: cu -l /dev/cuau1 -s 9600



  • @stephenw10 it's always the same issue.. โ˜น


  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, you might try some other common board rates. I expect cuaU0 to be the front panel com port, but they might be swapped for some reason.

    It could be that the switch in the smallest unit doesn't have a console to access. Can you see what the switch chip is on the board?

    Steve



  • On the board I see near the RJ45 connectors a chip named "LB G4P109 LF"
    My friend google said that it's a "quad port network transformer" โ˜บ

  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm probably under that small heatsink unfortunately.

    What baud rates did you try?

    Any BIOS options that might suggest something?

    Can you boot the original OS and check the boot messages?

    Steve



  • I tried 4800 -> 115200 baudrate.

    I will look in the bios tomorow.

    OUPS ! Unfortunately I have written pfsense over the old OS

    I took the heatsink off ( I already tear up the warranty label :D)

    It's an Atheros AR8328

    --> it's not like in the command result where it is written intel --> I need to install a new driver ?


  • Netgate Administrator

    Hmm, OK.
    It looks like the Atheros AR8328 does not have a serial interface that could be used to configure it unlike the other Netasq devices. That makes things immediately 100x more difficult as you need to configure it via MDC/MDIO or
    via the config eprom directly.
    Netasq/Stormshield OS is built on FreeBSD though I believe, they have contributed stuff back into the base. Unfortunately though I don't see the 8328 as supported:
    https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/tree/master/sys/dev/etherswitch/arswitch
    Unless it's so similar to the 8327 it might be able to use that. We are still talking about significant work to get it running.

    One thing you might try here is Installing OpenWRT which does have support AR8328 switch. Even if just as a test.

    Kind of curious what those jumpers might do but it's hard to recommend you change them without knowing. Are they labelled?

    Steve

    I did it PM.
    eth1 is a Broadcomm, but down. nothing appends when i plug a cable in one of 4 ports.
    I don't know what test I have to do.

    Yes they are : JP3 et JP4 ๐Ÿ‘Ž


  • Netgate Administrator

    So you did install OpenWRT already?

    I'm not sure exactly what you were seeing as Broadcom. The two NIC would still be Intel. It may have created a bridge as OpenWRT usually does.
    You probably have to install the correct switch control modules for it to see and recognise the switch. Not entirely sire what those might be though...



  • I will search on this way



  • Nothing better...
    I don't understand why cu command freez on "connected"


  • Netgate Administrator

    The 'connected' output is generated by cu, it implies that cu is connected to the port. After that there is nothing there because there is nothing connected to the second com port. It's listening but nothing ever arrives.

    You can only configure that switch chip via the MDC/MDIO bus.

    In bios COM1 and COM2 are mapped with physical interface. is there a relation to ?

    it's doable for me ?


  • Netgate Administrator

    I mean anything is possible; it's a simple matter of coding. ๐Ÿ˜

    But if I were doing this I would start by trying to get OpenWRT to work with it as that's much closer to what you need to talk to the switch. Once that is working you will know exactly how it's connected and what it can do so it would make any work in pfSense much easier.

    Steve



  • Unfortunately there is no Steve to help me on openwrt ๐Ÿ˜ž.
    I find many drivers for wireless Atheros but no for AR8328.


  • Netgate Administrator

    Unfortunately there's not enough space in my head for that! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    But they have support for the AR8328 it's not as a separate driver, it's probably included and you just need to configure it to know there is a switch on em0 or whatever the interface is detected as there.
    https://openwrt.org/docs/techref/hardware/switch#qualcommatheros

    Most x86 stuff doesn't have a switch so it's probably not enabled by default.
