I have a new 7206 router that I will put in place soon.
In the meantime, I would like to take the opportunity to experiment with using the flash disk.
I have looked at the document on Cisco's site, but it is very basic.
I have a couple of questions:
1. My understanding is the boot image can be on onboard flash or the compact flash and by default the router will check on board flash first, then the compact flash, is this correct?
2. What are the most common usage for the flash disk?
3. Below is from another 7206 in production:
BOOT variable = disk0:c7200-jk9o3s-mz.123-14.T7.bin,12;
CONFIG_FILE variable does not exist
BOOTLDR variable does not exist
Configuration register is 0x2102
Open device slot0 failed (No such device)
It looks like there is no onboard flash on this router and everything is located on disk0:
Directory of disk0:/

7 -rw- 1463 Jan 20 2005 21:07:42 -05:00 home.html
4. Did anything have to be done to this router for the router to boot (other than modify bootvar) or is this default behavior?
5. What is the upgrade procedure if I need to put an upgrade image larger than what this disk can hold?
