Boot time increases after CatOS to IOS conversion

Unanswered Question
Feb 5th, 2007

I converted two of my new 6509's from CatOS to IOS today and now when I reload the switch it takes around 9 minutes to boot completely. During the boot process it hangs on "Initializing ATA monitor library" for about 4 minutes.

I have this problem too.

Yup thats normal , take a look at the sizes of the images now they are 3 times the size they used to be . The only way I know to shorten it is to turn off complete diagnostics while it is loading which probably isn't a great idea .

Ouch! Thank you for your reply. I am running the modular IOS "s3223-adventerprisek9_wan-vz.122-18.SXF7.bin" so hopefully upgrades will not requirement complete reloads. Thanks again.
