I am familiar with carrying out IOS upgrade procedure on 65K platform, but have come across one issue today. The boot system command points to disk0: image. The disk0: image has been checksummed & verified. Upon reload the switch ends up in rommon. when 'boot', is issued from rommon, the second image in the bootstring loads sucessfully.
BOOT variable = disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin,12;sup-bootdisk:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF10.bin,1;
CONFIG_FILE variable =
BOOTLDR variable =
Configuration register is 0x2102
Standby is not present.

Configuration register is 0x2102
any known fix?
Hi recently i faced this issue with 6504-E.
When i used "show version" confreg = 0x2102
I used command "remote command switch show version " and found that confreg = 0x2100.
I went to ROMMON is issued command confreg 0x2102 and "reset".
Then it booted normally , again i tried reloading, so it resolved.
