amd_flash_cmd: timeout on write .... after upgrading a 2801

Unanswered Question
Jan 17th, 2008

hi all,

I just upgraded a Cisco 2801 Router from 12.4(5) to 12.4(15)T (ED) and i get that warning (or errors) message at the end of booting:

amd_flash_cmd: timeout on write sector command

environment write to NVRAM failed

Every thing seems ok, i get command prompt after that.

Any help to explain to me that is welcome.


Any help will be helpful,

I have this problem too.

Yes it is a cosmetic bug as far as we can tell. Functioning of the router seems normal. The appearance of the error message is mostly an annoying thing but seems to do no harm. Hopefully a new version of code will address the error message.
