Switch not showing the "boot system flash:<imagefilename> statement

This morning while getting ready to upgrade the IOS on a 3560 switch at one of my clients, I was in configuration mode. I have two image files loaded into flash, the old and the upgrade image.

I then tried to add the "boot system flash:<imagefile> command to the configuration. The switch accepts the command, but thereafter when I perform a "sho run | i boot, the boot system flash statement is not in the configuration.

I also looked doing a full show run. The boot system flash statement is simply not there.

Has anyone observed this behavior before. Thanks for any guidance.

It's normal behavior.

"sh boot" will show you the boot image info, but not sh start | inc boot.
