I'm attempting to upgrade a 6500 SUP720 module's SP bootflash (sup-bootflash)from the default of 64Mb to 512Mb by the installation of a CompactFlash (CF) adaptor.
The SUP720 boots up OK when the default sup-bootflash module(64Mb) is installed in the SP DIMM. It has the following boot image installed:
The attached file displays both a normal boot sequence with the default sup-bootflash and the attempted boot sequence with the CF adaptor installed.
For the later, the boot sequence implies that the CF adaptor is a non-bootable device.
Note: The s72033-PSV-MZ.122-18.SXD76.bin file was copied acrossed to the 512Mb CF prior to the upgrade.
Is there something obvious that I have "missed" here?
Do I need to change the bootvar varibles prior to re-booting with the CF adaptor?
(see attached file)
The SP ROMMON release is later than 8.4(2):
Router#remote command switch show version | include ROM
ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 8.5(2)
System returned to ROM by reload at 06:42:42 UTC Tue Sep 15 2009
Router#show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
Region F1: APPROVED, preferred
Region F2: INVALID
Currently running ROMMON from F1 region
Finally, I assume that after a successful CF Adaptor upgrade has been performed, the "sup-bootflash" is then referred to as "sup-bootdisk" - is this correct?
Any hints or pointers would be greatly appreciated!
