Hi,


I would like to understand the meaning of the number appended to the filename at the output of a show bootvar. ,1 or ,12. I could not find a definitve statement at the cco. Can anybody help ?


Switch>sh bootvar

BOOT variable = bootflash:cat4000-is-mz.121-12c.EW.bin,1;bootflash:cat4000-is-mz.121-12c.EW1.bin,12


Thanks

Peter

this is the sequence of how the image is loaded when the box boots up.

Firsrt it will load bootflash:cat4000-is-mz.121-12c.EW.bin, if that fails it will load bootflash:cat4000-is-mz.121-12c.EW1.bin,12

Thanks for your reply. I have been aware of this and I'm rather interested in the meaning of the number following the name of the image

*.bin,1 or

*.bin,12

Those indicators also appear if only one image is listed in the boot sequence list.
