Hello,


Those messages will not cause any harm. Based on their nature, they should be cleared if you set the parameters for booting from TFTP server in Rommon but I have not done it yet myself.


If you are still interested, this link explains how it is configured and how the boot would look like on an ASR:

I could not find a way to configure them from CLI and I do not think that going into rommon is really worth the effort just so that those messages disappear.


Warm Regards,

Rose

Hello,


Those messages are normal and they do not indicate any problem. They are printed by the rommon code to indicate that it is not setup to boot from tftp server.


Warm Regards,
