Description (partial)

Symptom:
- Leaf or spine switch is stuck in 'downloading-boot-script' status. The node never fully registers and does not become active in the fabric.

- You can check the status by running 'cat /mit/sys/summary | grep state' on the CLI of the spine or leaf:
   If the state is set to 'downloading-boot-script' for a long period of time (> 5 minutes), you may be running into this issue.

- Checking policy element logs on the spine or leaf switch will confirm if the bootscript file cannot be found on the Cisco APIC:
   1. Change directory to /var/log/dme/log.
   2. Grep all svc_ifc_policyelem.log files for "downloadUrl - failed, error=HTTP response code said error".
   If you see this error message, check to make sure all Cisco APICs have the node bootscript files located in /firmware/fwrepos/fwrepo/boot.
