Hey guys, I have a problem.
I loaded the incorrect IOS image via tftp and in the process erased the flash. Now when i start up I get wrong system software for this hardware and get dropped into rommon> mode.
I read an article on experts in regards to using TFTP commands to re-download the image but the hardware im on (3640 router) doesn't seem to support tftp in rommon mode. See rommon options below.
rommon 1 > ?
alias set and display aliases command
boot boot up an external process
break set/show/clear the breakpoint
confreg configuration register utility
cont continue executing a downloaded image
context display the context of a loaded image
cookie display contents of cookie PROM in hex
dev list the device table
dir list files in file system
dis disassemble instruction stream
dnld serial download a program module
frame print out a selected stack frame
help monitor builtin command help
history monitor command history
meminfo main memory information
repeat repeat a monitor command
reset system reset
set display the monitor variables
stack produce a stack trace
sync write monitor environment to NVRAM
sysret print out info from last system return
unalias unset an alias
unset unset a monitor variable
xmodem x/ymodem image download
rommon 2 >
There is also some documentation to use the boot option to load via tftp but no go.
The dnld option looks like it might be my way out but how does that work? i need to download an image via serial? do i make a serial connection with my pc? is it the 15 pin connector on the back of the hardware they are talking about or my wan serial connections?
What about loading ios via pcmcia?
Any help appreciated guys. Thanks in advance.
