I am in the process of upgrading the image on a Cat 4510 IOS.

When I do a show bootvar it shows the following

BOOT variable = not available

CONFIG_FILE variable not available

Configuration register is 0x2101

ignore-config: disabled

auto-config: non-recurring

console baud: 9600

I have entered the following:

# boot system flash c45....bin;c45....bin

# conf reg 0x2102

but when I do a show bootvar, it still shows the same as above.

I am wary of rebooting this now as I do not know if it will pick up the new download?

In addition do I write

boot system flash device:c4500.bin


boot system flash c4500.bin

Please help.

The statement would be boot system flash bootflash: . You must do a write mem before the boot statement will show up in the "show bootvar" statement.

Thanks Glen

It also shows

BOOTLDR = not set

even though on the Show version, there is a boot image.

Should I also isuse a bootldr statement or leave it as blank?
