Hello, I am performing an upgrade from a NPE-300 to a NPE-G2 processing engine on a 7206VXR router. I am trying to get the router to boot from a config file on the Compact Flash media instead of the NVRAM. I have entered the command "boot config disk2:startup-config and saved the change to the startup config in NVRAM. Upon reboot it still loads the config from the NVRAM. How can I get the router to load the configuration from the Compact Flash card? I do not want to use the NVRAM as the configuration file location for each boot. I have attached a copy of the show bootvar and show version from the router for your reference. Any assistance is appreciated.
When you use the "boot config" command, you affect only the running configuration. You must save the environment variable settings using "copy run start" to your startup configuration to place the information under ROM monitor control and for the environment variables to function as expected, there are no extra commands, please check and get back to us.
If you specify a configuration file in the filename argument that does not exist or is not valid, the software displays an error message and does not update the CONFIG_FILE environment variable. If the router detects any kind of problems after accepting this command, it enters the setup mode.
HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,
