Have a couple of old BayStack 325 24T switches. One of them is flashing all amber on all the port lights, the other doesn't seem to have an IP and is not responding via serial connection; just a black PuTTY screen with no Nortel logo screen.
I've triple-checked PuTTY settings, have a null modem cable (tried a straight through cable as well), and have tried resetting to defaults with the UI Set button (Hold for 3 seconds till flashing, hit button 3 times, turns orange flashing, then hold to commit), but no go.
I've also ran
tcpdump and can see STP traffic, so the switch is "alive", just not sure what else to try.
