Environment
  • EXOS G2 platforms
  • BootROM: 1.0.2.1
Cause
One of possible reasons of such behaviour could be delays when switch receives packets from TFTP server.
Resolution
To avoid this issue please place TFTP server in network as close to the switch as possible when installing EXOS from BootROM menu. It is preferable to place TFTP server and switch in a same L2 broadcast domain.
