IOS upgrade on a WS-CBS3020-HPQ HP Blade switch

Unanswered Question

I was in the process of ugrading a WS-CBS3020-HPQ switch

from ios cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-37.SE.bin to cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-50.SE1.bin

I want to be able to boot from the new image and have the old image as a backup

After copying over the new image to the root of flash via tftp, I entered the following

commands:

boot system flash:cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-50.SE1.bin

boot system flash:cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-37.SE/cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-37.SE.bin

The switch booted from the old image

I noticed that the Configuration register is set to a value of 0xF I tried to change it to 0x2102 and got

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

I have this problem too.

Did you delete old boot statement first if not delete the old then put the new image first for the boot statement and then input the old one second . What does it show when you do a "show boot" ? Is it in the right order?

Thing is there is not an existing boot command and when I enter them

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

RDRLSWB204B(config)#boot system flash:cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-50.SE1.bin

RDRLSWB204B(config)#$30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-37.SE/cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-37.SE.bin

The switch accepts the commands without an error but when I do a show run immediately after the boot commands are no where to be seen when I do a show run.

And as I said before I can't change the config-register from 0xF to 0x2102 with the "config-register 0x2102" command

As far as I know you will not see the boot statements in the running config, like you do with e.g. a Cat6500. I believe you have to do a 'show boot' to verify what the boot sequence is.

The info still shows the old image

RCHISWB209A#show boot

BOOT path-list : flash:/cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-40.SE2/cbs30x0-lanbasek9-mz.122-40.SE2.bin

Config file : flash:/config.text

Private Config file : flash:/private-config.text

Enable Break : no

Manual Boot : no

HELPER path-list :

Auto upgrade : yes

Auto upgrade path :

RCHISWB209A#

Just had the chance to check. You are using the wrong syntax. The rigt one is:

conf t

SW1(config)#boot system ?

WORD pathlist of boot file(s) ... file1;file2;...

SW1(config)#boot system flash:/cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-50.SE1/cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-50.SE1.bin;flash:cbs30x0-ipbasek9-mz.122-37.SE.bin

Note the semicolon and all boot statements in one line.

It looks like it took it. I have to wait til 5 before I can boot though.

Thank you very much iyde, your help is very much appreciated.
