I have a Cat6509 that I am building. It has a Sup720 (WS-SUP720-3BXL) in slot 6 that I want to boot from (with IOS 12.2)
Apparently the bootflash has CatOS on it. Please see Show Ver below. The PCMCIA card I want to boot from has IOS on it (s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-vm ver 12.2).
When I enter the command to set the boot device to pcmcia slot0, I get an error stating 'Feature not supported on Module 6'. See below.
Can someone tell me what I am missing here? Do I need to upgrade the Sup720 bootflash to IOS before this will work?
I am not very familiar with 6509's. I have worked much more with GSR's and other platforms, but very little with 6500's. Any help would be most appreciated.
