I am working with an 877 router trying to do a disaster recovery from a bad flash image and I am getting this error when I try and do the tftpdnld from rommon. I set the parameters for the download, but when I try to do it I get the following. Do I have to init the flash memory? or is this an indication of bad physical flash memory.


Configured in Router:


IP_ADDRESS=192.168.1.1

IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.0

DEFAULT_GATEWAY=192.168.1.3

TFTP_SERVER=192.168.1.3

TFTP_FILE=c870-advipservicesk9-mz.124-15.T1.bin

The dir struct error indicates bad flash. An RMA or other flash replacement is required.
