#2

can’t log into eNB after firmware update. Trying Admin and Admin? is it something different now?


#3

I installed the update on a 250mw unit and CPEs could No longer even see the cell. Once I did a rollback all CPEs connected and we’re fine.


#4

No, default is still admin/admin (all lowercase). Let me know if you require help with a password reset.


#5

Was the cell status Active?

If you would like to try the upgrade again, coordinate with support (support_na@baicells.com) on the date and time so that a support engineer can be available to review any issues related to the upgrade.


#6

Yes it was, and all of the various links and tunnels were connected and “up”. The CPEs were showing “No service” but as soon as I rolled back everything came up without any intervention from me… I was also not able to find the parameter to allow 96 CPEs to connect, though it did show success on the upgrade.

It turns out that the SW upgrade on the eNBs were was setting the RF status to “disabled”. Manaually enabling it solved the problem.
