Synopsis: EP9302 CPU Reboot Issues
Severity: minor
Class: Hardware
Release: All EP9302 silicon revisions
Status: Workarounds available

Description:

From EP9302 Silicon Errata:
The processor may boot into an invalid state upon initial power up of the device. When this condition occurs, the processor will not complete its boot sequence and requires an additional power on reset (POR) to be applied.

Workaround:

This is a known issue in which case the Technologic Systems' Watchdog timer in the CPLD will reboot the CPU again in 8 seconds if this lock-up occurs. Upon that reboot the CPU will likely be out of this state and will boot normally.

Number: 02

Synopsis: SSH/SSL Start Failure
Severity: minor
Class: Software
Release: TS-72XX Debian SBCs (Specifically the TS-7300)
Status: Workarounds available

Description:

On start-up, messages like the following may get printed:
Starting OpenBSD Secure Shell server: sshdCould not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
Could not load host key: /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
Disabling protocol version 2. Could not load host key
sshd: no hostkeys available -- exiting.
...
Starting web server: apache-ssl failed.

This is due to the fact that we do not include SSL/SSH keys with our default distribution for security reasons.

Workaround:

This issue can be solved by generating SSH keys:
ssh-keygen -t dsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_dsa_key
ssh-keygen -t rsa -f /etc/ssh/ssh_host_rsa_key
