Hi Parwal,


Have you configured any ip address on any vlan in MSFC. I do not think that theer is any ip address on MSFC so when you try to ping your tftp server what will be source and that is the reason you are getting an error as I do not think IP protocol is activated on any interface.


Also to convert CATOS to IOS why are you going to MSFC. Tou should be on sup and take it to rommom state and go ahead with the procedure.


Please read this link to convert CATOS to IOS on sup 720

Also when you are on sup remember to assign an ip address to SC0 in terface on CATOS and assign it to vlan to which your TFTP srever is connected by default it in vlan 1 on all the ports.

Hi Parwal,


I am not exactly sure about this image "s72033-ipservices_wan-mz.122-18.SXF.bin" as i am not sure about the part in the image which is "ipservices_wan" but with the starting name convention of the image says it is NATIVE IOS for sup 720 "s72033" but as per the doc which I have send you I thin kyou can boot this from disk0: if you have one.


Also you jsut need to make sure your RP and sup both are in rommon but I do not think you need to have this image in RP bootflash


Regards,


Ankur
