What happens if you type boot on rommon? Do you get an error?

Hi,

i had similar incident with my 871 router, i discovered it was a case of corrupted ios. This is how to resolved it:

First download the required ios u need to a tftp server.

Make sure the tftp server has an active connection to the router, preferably have a direct connection between the tftp server and the router interface so that they will be on the same subnet.


use tftpdnld command in romon.


when the router boots to the romon environment, use the 'set' command to view the Rommon environment variables.

rommon 3 > set

PS1=rommon ! >

IP_ADDRESS=172.18.16.76

IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.255.192

DEFAULT_GATEWAY=172.18.16.65

TFTP_SERVER=172.18.16.2

TFTP_FILE=quake/rel22_Jan_16/c2600-i-mz


the variables to set for tftpdnld are


usage: tftpdnld [-ur]

Use this command for disaster recovery only to recover an image via TFTP.

Monitor variables are used to set up parameters for the transfer.

(Syntax: "VARIABLE_NAME=value" and use "set" to show current variables.)

"ctrl-c" or "break" stops the transfer before flash erase begins.

The following variables are REQUIRED to be set for tftpdnld:

IP_ADDRESS: The IP address for this unit

IP_SUBNET_MASK: The subnet mask for this unit

DEFAULT_GATEWAY: The default gateway for this unit

TFTP_SERVER: The IP address of the server to fetch from

TFTP_FILE: The filename to fetch

The following variables are OPTIONAL:

TFTP_VERBOSE: Print setting. 0=quiet, 1=progress(default), 2=verbose

TFTP_RETRY_COUNT: Retry count for ARP and TFTP (default=7)

TFTP_TIMEOUT: Overall timeout of operation in seconds (default=7200)

TFTP_CHECKSUM: Perform checksum test on image, 0=no, 1=yes (default=1)

Command line options:

-r: do not write flash, load to DRAM only and launch image

-u: upgrade the rommon, system will reboot once upgrade is complete

rommon 14 >


Look at an example i got from a reference i was refered to:

Example

rommon 16 > IP_ADDRESS=171.68.171.0

rommon 17 > IP_SUBNET_MASK=255.255.254.0

rommon 18 > DEFAULT_GATEWAY=171.68.170.3

rommon 19 > TFTP_SERVER=171.69.1.129

rommon 20 > TFTP_FILE=c2600-is-mz.113-2.0.3.Q

rommon 21 > tftpdnld

IP_ADDRESS: 171.68.171.0

IP_SUBNET_MASK: 255.255.254.0

DEFAULT_GATEWAY: 171.68.170.3

TFTP_SERVER: 171.69.1.129

TFTP_FILE: c2600-is-mz.113-2.0.3.Q

Invoke this command for disaster recovery only.

WARNING: all existing data in all partitions on flash will be lost!

Do you wish to continue? y/n: [n]: y

hope this helps.
