It does BOOTP fine, and I have it netbooted now.  It's had several weeks of uptime with the netboot image.  I just would rather get ComOS loaded so I could do a flash boot as well.  It is indeed a PM2 and normally boots from flash (except for in my case!).

PMVision can connect to it, but the upgrade fails.  It doesn't tell you much, it just says not to reboot until you get a clean upgrade.  However, trying the upgrade repeatedly doesn't help, nor does using different ComOS images (3.3.3, 3.5, 3.7).
