I have an old Cat 4006, running CatOS. I had to make a password recovery on this device, and it started up in rommon. I booted up Cat4006 and there the config was lost.
I found an article that looked like my problem.
It uses bootstrap 4.5(1)
My questions is:
1. show boot:
BOOT variable = bootflash:cat4000-k9.7-2-1.bin,1;
CONFIG_FILE variable =
Configuration register is 0x2
console baud: 9600
boot: image specified by the boot system commands
Here is "CONFIG_FILE variable" missing it should be =bootflash:switch.cfg, should this file be in nvram?
2. On CatOS every config I make is saved auto. to nvram(switch.cfg i think). Is there a possibility to see this file in nvram? show nvram: dir nvram?
3. Is "CONFIG_FILE variable" somthing that i have to configure on a new empty switch or is this automatic(the switch will fill this in on first configuration).
4.When i try to add bootflash:switch.cfg
Hus> (enable) set boot auto-config bootflash:switch.cfg
CONFIG_FILE variable = bootflash:switch.cfg
Warning: File not found but still added in the auto-config string.
