Hi Simon,


MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M

Supported only on Supervisor Engine 2.


With software releases 7.5(1) and later, additional Flash PC card support was added as follows:

•64-MB ATA Flash PC card (MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M=)—Only supported on Supervisor Engine 2. The device name is disk0: and the card requires ROMMON version 7.1(1) and later releases.


The MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M(=) and MEM-C6K-FLC64M= Flash PC cards are not formatted. Although the cards appear to be formatted when first installed, you must format the cards to prevent possible data corruption.


Checked the IOS version release details:

New Features in Release 12.2(18)SXF17a

These sections describe the new features in Release 12.2(18)SXF17a, 19 Mar 2010:

Hi Podhillo.


Thanks for your answer (I see that you are CSE at CiscoSystems)


YOUR WROTE:
•64-MB ATA Flash PC card (MEM-C6K-ATA-1-64M=)—Only supported on Supervisor Engine 2. The device name is disk0: and the card requires ROMMON version 7.1(1) and later releases.


Question: I not sure how to interpret the output from show version, show module and remote command switch sh ver !

remote command switch sh ver shows this:

Router-sp#


ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 7.1(1)


Do I have the right rommon then ? I am in doubt because http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/hardware/Config_Notes/78_12667.pdf


says that sh module check rommon version (in thie case 6.1(3))
