Rajiv,

A freshly formatted card will not have any files on the disk. This is normal. You will need to copy an IOS to the flash card. This guide should help you be able to do that.

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

Thanks Mark,

I am sory but you ignored the fact that the newly formatted flash card with "no" files on it says "0 bytes free".

Also, the tftp transfer will not happen with error "no space" ( which as per the dir output is obvious)".

Let me know if you have any more ideas.

thanks

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

Sorry I completely missed the fact that there were 0 bytes free. Was the card formatted in the same device you are trying to use it in? What brand CF are you trying to use?

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

Thanks Mark,

Now you are on the right track.

The cards are from cisco and they have been formatted on the same 6509E from where i took this output.

I am curious to know whats wrong?

regards

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

That is strange and have never seen that happen before. Can you try the other Compact flash slot and format it again and see if that works. There is a possibility that the card may have gone bad or is defective.

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

Is this a new CF card? It is possible that the card is faulty. Have you tried a different slot or different switch/supervisor to try to format the card?

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

sorry, there is no squeeze for disk0 or 1.

Re: Flash Card issue with 6509

Are you certain the issue is related to the flash module and not a result of the size limitation with TFTP transfers? Try doing the transfer with FTP.
