Catalyst 2948g-L3 with Bootstrap 12.0(7)W5(15) lost IOS
i?ve got some trouble on my switch. Unfortunately I cleared the nvram. Now there is no IOS inside the switch.
I?ve read a lot of documetation, but I cannot load the original IOS Software, which I have saved first (I?m so glad about that) on my Computer, because i cannot use the xmodem comand. monito: comand "xmodem" not found.
I start a Terminal program (Hyperterminal) on COM1. After plugging the cord onto the switch it comes dierectly to rommon 1>, THere is no command like xmodem or smth.
I have installed the Cisco TFTP Server, but i cannot connect the switch to it.
Also if I use the transmit data from the Hyperterminla program - menu - it is not going to start sending the ios - file to the switch.
Is it possible, tha my Bootstrap version which ist not (15a) only 15, will not allow copying IOS by tftp? If it is so, how can i manage to get the ios back into my switch?
Re: Catalyst 2948g-L3 with Bootstrap 12.0(7)W5(15) lost IOS
i found something out on the cisco Support:
The booting process of the Catalyst 2948G-L3 and the Catalyst 4908G-L3 is very similar to the booting process of other Cisco IOS routers. One issue is that prior to bootstrap version 12.0(7)W5.15a, xmodem download of the IOS was not supported. Therefore, if there is no IOS image in the bootflash: and the device is in ROMMON mode, then there is no way to recover and the complete device needs to be replaced. ROMMON code is not upgradable in the field. Beginning with bootstrap version 12.0(7)W5.15a, xmodem download is supported.
This is so unbelievable. What can I do now? Would it be updatable by a cisco employee? How much will this cost?
I bought that Switch in order to do some lesson for my CCNA.
