65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

I am familiar with carrying out IOS upgrade procedure on 65K platform, but have come across one issue today. The boot system command points to disk0: image. The disk0: image has been checksummed & verified. Upon reload the switch ends up in rommon. when 'boot', is issued from rommon, the second image in the bootstring loads sucessfully.

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

Hi recently i faced this issue with 6504-E.

When i used "show version" confreg = 0x2102

I used command "remote command switch show version " and found that confreg = 0x2100.

I went to ROMMON is issued command confreg 0x2102 and "reset".

Then it booted normally , again i tried reloading, so it resolved.

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

Ajaz,

You should try upgrading the rommon especially the SP. There have been some known booting issues with older rommon versions. I had this problem a while back and upgrading the rommon fixed the issue.

HTH,

Mark

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

Hmm.. I hear what you're saying but we have multiple 65K cores switches with same bootrom version - with no issues.

I'm seeing this behaviour occur on this single Cat only.

Might have to be one for TAC. Could well be HW issue.

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

just put a \ after boot0: and before the image name.

its either a "/" or a "\"

Silver

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

I could potentially give that a shot but the '/' would point to the contents within a directory structure. In this case we have the extracted image available directly on disk0. I'm doing nothing different here to what we have across all 65K's. Here's the config from another chassis, it's a working example:

hostname core05

!

boot-start-marker

boot system flash disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin

boot system sup-bootflash:s72033-pk9s-mz.122-18.SXD4.bin

BOOT variable = disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH2a.bin,1;sup-bootflash:s72033-pk9s-mz.122-18.SXD4.bin,12;

CONFIG_FILE variable does not exist

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

Check to see if the config register is correct on the supervisor processor when it is in rommon. there is a supervisor register and a msfc register . I have seen where it was incorrect right from the factory on the supervisor side , thus it never passes the load on to the msfc to finish loading.

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

i'd buy into that possibility, however, i built these boxes from new, loaded the code no problem and rebooted (soft&hard) multiple times before they were deployed onto production network.

Could there be an issue if the compact flash was swapped - anybody?

This is one occasion I could really do with high touch 65K hw folk input from brux

Now this reply makes complete sense. How this core ended up like this is beyond me. Will try out of course and submit rating accordingly.

good.

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

Thats exactly what I was talking about the supervisor config register was incorrect, couldn't remember the command to show it though. They can come thru from the facory like this , have seen it more than once....

Re: 65K image verified & bootvar all good - ROMMON

right glen ...!!!

even i had faced this problem for SUP720...but for me, SUP was earlier working fine, problem came when i tried to upgrade the IOS..then i found this command.
