Boot a MFSC on 6509

I received a Cisco Spare SUP1A-2GE without MFSC board. I reinstall the MFSC + DRAM +BootFlash to the new board. And copy all files on the PCMCIA (slot0: ) from my backup SUP1. The copy checksum + lenght are good and the same.

When I load the MFSC file in "rommon" mode from the slot0: the file is decompressed then the CATOS is loaded. When I received the CAT prompt I type the show module and the module is not loaded. I have tryed with another mfsc file it is the same.

Have you an idea how can I load the MFSC?

Thanks Patrick

Hello Patrick,

then there are procedures to trobleshoot booting issues here

Hi Giuseppe,

Thank you for the quick help!

But strange when I type the command from rommon > boot slot0: c6msfc2-boot-mz.121-13.E15.bin

the file is uncompressed.

and if the file is unreadable I receive an error message.

I need to place a space carracter after slot0: otherwize it gives me an checksum error !

And it can load the CAT OS file from the Flash!

I will try to load a new MFSC2 file tomorrow!

Best Regards

Patrick
