3560 -IOS upgrade- boot command query

Hi,

Uploaded the 3560 with new IOS leaving the existing intact. Issued the boot command..

boot system flash:c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-53.SE.bin;flash:c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEE2/c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin

Show boot:

BOOT path-list      : flash:c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-53.SE.bin;flash:c3560-ipbase-m
z.122-25.SEE2/c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin
Config file         : flash:/config.text
Private Config file : flash:/private-config.text
Enable Break        : no
Manual Boot         : no
HELPER path-list    :
Auto upgrade        : yes

Question is the boot path is fine to reboot the switch or need to be changed (no need of 'flash:' in boot system command..?)

TIA

MS

The boot system command needs to know which filesystem the IO is on so you do need the "flash" part in the boot string.

Re: 3560 -IOS upgrade- boot command query

Thanks Jon. So the switch will use 'c3560-ipbasek9-mz.122-53.SE.bin' during reboot...

Thanks

Yes, as long as that image is located in flash it will use it.
