c805 erase flash: does't work

Hi,

I'd like to upgrade the IOS:

Mr_Bb#sh flash:

Directory of flash:/

0 ---- 49096 Nov 8 2000 04:37:53 +01:00 TinyROM-1.4(1)

Mr_Bb#erase flash:

Mr_Bb#

Why can't I erase the flash?

TIA,

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Try either the following:

1. delete /f /r flash:[c805-osy6-mw.123-26.bin]

Note: Is this even the right filename???

2. delete /f /r flash:c805-osy6-mw.123-26.bin

When either one is completed, see if you have the command "squeeze flash:".

If none of the commands work, the next command will COMPLETELY WIPE OUT your flash drive: format flash:

Hope this helps.

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Hi,

In the filename the problematic is the [] signs?

Yes, sh flash: shows the mentioned filename.

Your 1 and 2 options didn't do anything.

Can I use format flash: if this is the content of flash?

Mr_Bb#delete /f /r c805-osy6-mw.123-26.bin

Mr_Bb#sh flash:

Directory of flash:/

0 ---- 49096 Nov 8 2000 04:37:53 +01:00 TinyROM-1.4(1)

66 -r-x 6229492 Mar 18 2008 04:29:07 +01:00 [c805-osy6-mw.123-26.bin]

8388608 bytes total (2031616 bytes free)

So the question is: What will be with TinyROM-1.4(1)?

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

The "format flash:" command will completely wipe out your flash.

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Then what can I do with the TinyROM file?

The router is far from here ...

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Hi,

Oh!

There isn't format command!

Mr_Bb#format ?

% Unrecognized command

Hmmm...

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

1. You can copy TinyROM-1.4(1) to your TFTP server.

2. I can't believe "format flash:" is not supported on a 12.3 IOS when it's already present in the 12.2 IOS.

3. Try "squeeze flash:".

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Hi,

1. OK, I hope I can copy it. What will it be effected to the running router?

2. I copied the result what I got from the IOS for "format" command.

3. I'll make a try.

TIA,

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

I have no idea what the "TinyROM-1.4(1)" filename is for and I'm sure it has nothing to do with the operation of your router.

Re: c805 erase flash: does't work

Hi,

OK. We don't know what is TinyROM and it is needed or not. But what about erasing the flash:?

Squeeze flash:

Mr_Bb#squeeze flash:

All deleted files will be removed. Continue? [confirm]

Squeeze operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]

|>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>|

Squeeze of flash complete

Mr_Bb#sh flash:

Directory of flash:/

0 ---- 49096 Nov 8 2000 04:37:53 +01:00 TinyROM-1.4(1)

66 -r-x 6229492 Mar 18 2008 04:29:07 +01:00 [c805-osy6-mw.123-26.bin]

I think it is a little bit funny I can't remove the image.

TIA,
