Cannot do a backup to flash on bCX4040. ACCStatusBackup is set to ACCBackupInactive.

Issue

Cannot do a backup to flash on bCX4040. Distribution Properties indicates "The flash for this controller does not need to be backed up."

Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

bCX4040

Cause

ACCStatusBackup is set to ACCBackupInactive when ACCRestartMode is set to ACCWarmStartOnly. This occurred when a bCX9640 was flashed to a bCX4040. ACCWarmToCool is the default ACCRestartMode for the bCX4040.

Resolution

Change ACCRestartMode to ACCWarmToCool and then try the backup.

For more information on the ACCRestartMode refer to Chapter 5 of the bCX1 Series Controller Technical Reference document # 30-3001-890.
