Con0 locked on Catalyst 6500

I have the following on my switch (cat 6500 running IOS)console:

switch_01 con0 is now available

Press RETURN to get started.

When I press RETURN, I see the same message again and again, but do not see the prompt. I tried to change the config-register from the rommon prompt to ignore the NVRAM contents (0x2142)and reset the switch, but again the switch picks up the config from NVRAM and ends up locking the console. I am now unable to get to the switch.

I would appreciate any help.

Thank you,

Mohan

Re: Con0 locked on Catalyst 6500

Hi all,

I solved this. I was on the wrong rommon. I was at the switch rommon. I pressed ctrl-Break too early and landed up on the Switch Processor. But, what was needed is the Route Processor rommon. I waited till the control was passed on to the RP and then pressed ctrl-break and got into the correct rommon and that solved the issue.

Thanks.
