I have a 6509 and I currently am booting from the IOS on disk0.
Disk0 also has the vlan.dat file on it.
I would like to upgrade the IOS on the 6509, but keep the IOS image on disk0.
My plan is to have disk0 ejected and add disk1 to the boot list.
If I have any problems with the IOS on disk1, I will just push disk0 back in and boot from it.
My questions are:
What tells the 6509 where to read the vlan.dat file upon boot?
For example, if i want to laod an image onto disk1 and boot from there, do I need a copy of the vlan.dat on disk1 also?
