I have the following problem with one of our routers. I have recentlu upgraded a router by adding another flash module (8Mb + 8Mb =16Mb Flash) in order to upgrade IOS.


Now the system has recognised the Flashed and can be listed as flash:1: and flash:2:


I have erased the flash memories using erase flash:1 and flash:2


Now I am trying to copy tftp image to flash.


It get's to a point after defining the name that system ask me to confirm eraseing flash at slot:0: !!! ?? I have no memory at slot 0!! Any ideas why?


How do I define to the system to combine flash memories?



Regards.

Have you checked the config file to see it it has the following line:


partition flash 2 8 8


this instrucsts the router to set up two flash partitions of 8Mb each.


If this line exists just do a


no partition flash 2 8 8


then reformat the flash.


hope that helps.
