Question: Can I boot my new IOS by simply putting the system into the flash card and issueing command router(config)# boot system disk0:filename?
Do I need a bootloader?
Do I need an msfc boot image?
How do I easily zero out the current boot variable so that I don't get a string of boot variables when I do a show boot?
When I do a copy run star, on the machine, will the disk0:filename value be copied over to the redundant sup?
BOOT variable = sup-bootflash:,1;sup-bootflash:c6sup22-psv-mz.121-19.E1.bin,1;sup-booten,1;disk0:c6sup22-psv-mz.121-26.E8.bin,12
CONFIG_FILE variable =
BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c6msfc2-boot-mz.121-13.E3.bin
Configuration register is 0x2102
Standby is up
Standby has 227328K/34816K bytes of memory.
Standby BOOT variable = bootflash:,1;bootflash:c6sup22-psv-mz.121-19.E1.bin,1;booten,1;disk0:c6sup22-psv-mz.121-26.E8.bin,12
Standby CONFIG_FILE variable =
Standby BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c6msfc2-boot-mz.121-13.E3.bin
Standby Configuration register is 0x2102
startup-config should cover it. Make sure to issue a 'wr mem' so the running-config will be transferred to the startup-config.
Good luck tonight and please post results.
