Symptom:
The status of the SSL VPN states "Unitialized:  SSL-VPN requires initialization."

Fix:
From the CLI, perform the following commands to re-initialize the SSL VPN card:

  1. From the switch console, login as the administrator.
  2. Then type the following:
        L        (This will enter the Command Line Interface (CLI) display mode.)
        Enable        (Enable priveleged command mode.)
        "admin-pwd"    (Enter the administrators password.)
        show ssl-vpn    (Displays the status of SSL VPN card.  Verify that the card is in the Unitialized             state.)
        ssl-vpn-cli reinstall <Management_IP_addr>    
    (Begin reinstallation process, where <Management_IP_addr> is the IP address of the        management interface of the SSL VPN card.)
  3. Login as username=boot, password= ForgetMe (case sensitive).

You are prompted for the same IP address that you used in Step 2, a subnet mask, a gateway IP address, FTP server address, service type (FTP or TFTP), and filename of the software image on the server. The SSL VPN card will download the image and install it.  It will then reboot.  After it has finished rebooting, you can login to verify that the new image is active.
