I have a major problem with a 6509 supervisor engine (WS-X6K-SUP1A-2GE). I have lost the boot loader in the MSFC1 and I cannot upload a new boot loader image.
I run the supervisor switch engine in Rommon mode first and load the image from flash card (slot0:) manually with the command BOOT=slot0:c6sup11-jk2s-mz.121-26.E4.bin. After this, the supervisor gives command to the MSFC (router). At this point, I try to upload the boot loader with the xmodem function with the command 'xmodem -c -s9600' as specified in the instructions found on the Cisco website, but the upload fails after 7% of the upload is complete and the system crashes, giving out on screen the following error output:
*** System received a Software forced crash ***
signal= 0x17, code= 0x24, context= 0x61a38354
PC = 0x6012f818, Cause = 0x1820, Status Reg = 0x34018002
rommon 2 >
and returns into supervisor mode.
Please help! What is the problem? Thanks,
