Hello,


It seems I have the standby supervisor flash memory file system blocked whilst the sup-boodisk: file system is fine on the primary supervisor card


C6509#dir slavesup-bootdisk:
%Error opening slavesup-bootdisk:/ (Device or resource busy)


Both supervisors are WS-SUP720-3B and I was able to access the secondary one flash: yesterday.


Is there any command to make it accessible again without having to reload the supervisor itself or issuing the format slavesup-bootdisk: command?


Thanks.

Jorge,


No harm in trying to format it. Since "dir" command report "resource is busy", I am not sure if you will be able to format it.


Let me know results.


Send complete results of "sh mod" and "sh ver | inc IOS"

Jorge,


Please check "show file system" and see if the switch see slavesup-bootdisk: and file systems size is listed (and not "-").


If it is not recognized, may I know if you are running any EEM/Tcl script that access this file system more often ?


Did you check LEDs of slavesup ?

Hello,


Thanks for your quick reply. In fact the disk size is not being recongized:


         -           -      disk     rw   slavesup-bootdisk: slavesup-bootflash:


I am not runing any EEM or TCL script.


I am not onsite so I cannot check the LED status. I quess my only solution is to format the disk.


Cheers.

Hello,


I finally had to reboot the standby supervisor card to recover the access to the flash.


Regards.
