Cisco Core Switch 6506-E Rommon Mode

Dear Sir,


Good Day!


Everytime I try to restart my Cisco Core Switch 6506-E, it will go on ROMMON 1 mode command.


This problem I encountered when my Electrical Power accidentally shutdown.


The Solution I did is to just type - boot command


and then Automatic iniatilize the configuration and reboot from normal.


What can I do to fix this issue permanently?


Your immediate response is highly appreciated.


Thanks and Best regards,

Michael D. Miranda

check if you have config-register set  to 0x2102 on both RP and SP.


sh version -> on RP

remote login switch

sh version -> on SP


If not i would say change it


Thanks,

Richard.

Everytime I try to restart my Cisco Core Switch 6506-E, it will go on ROMMON 1 mode command.

Maybe the boot statement is incorrect.


Post the output to the following commands:


1.  sh bootvar

2.  dir sup-bootdisk:

3.  dir disk0:

Hi, Michael Miranda...

I absolutely agree with Richard Michael, he offered you the right solution, but let me explain a little more deeply situation.

Sorry, English is not my native language and I can not well everlasting on it complicated things... I just give you links to two articles, after reading that you all will become clear:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_tech_note09186a00803e5282.shtml

http://www.cciezone.com/?p=188

In short, you have mismatch of the configuration register of SP and RP...The solution is to reconfigure the configuration register and reload the system:

config t

config-register 0x2102

end
