Do you know if this box received its "Upgrade Prep" package prior to taking on iDS 8.0?  It appears you may be out of FPGA space (dont quote me on that, as that is an initial guess). I say that because the unit is getting thru Redboot, but not making it to Falcon.

If you are able to get to the prompt (#) on console, you need to follow the steps in the document above to recover that remote.

Thanks Eric.  I was wondering what was causing that link to break.

It might be the problem of OPT file you have uploaded, it might be with different series. In this scenario u have to follow manual procedure to change the OPT file in modem.
