I got a call from a customer where they said that they cant get a 6504 with a Sup720 too boot properly. Thay had it working on friday. they did a couple of test runs on some configurations and the last thing they did was a Write Erase.
On Monday Morning, they were going to reconfigure the sup720 to be deployed, but it booted only in to rommon.
It booted when given the boot command in rommon. We did a check of the sh bootvar, and everything was as it should be. here is the result of sh bootvar:
BOOT = disk0:s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF8.bin,1;
Configuration register = 0x2102
After a couple of rebootes i did a confreg in rommon on a whim, and the boot variable was set to 0x2100. After i changed the confreg to 0x2102 the 6504 boots into IOS as it should.
Now to my question, arent sh bootvar going to fetch the value from rommon and display the values. And how can the confreg be changed when the only command the customer did was write erase.
