thanks for the quick response. The flash card is 48MB. I have a Sup1/MSFC2 combination in this Cat6509. the IOS is presently 12.1(2)E and I am trying to upgrade to 12.1.26E9 which right at 20MB so I definitely need a flash card to put it on.... but I cant seem to get this Supervisor to recognize it when I put a PCMCIA card into it. it keep saying "%Error opening slot0:/ (No device available)"
is the slot only recognized by the CATOS on this 6509? does the CATOS have to do something before the IOS can see it?
This section addresses a Catalyst 6500/6000 switch that runs hybrid mode and is unable to read the Supervisor Engine 2 Flash PC Card (PCMCIA) or Flash PC device from MSFC2. The same external flash card is writable by the Cisco IOS on the MSFC2 and readable by CatOS on the Supervisor Engine module.
and at the end of the section:
The file systems that are available in the Supervisor Engines (disk0:/disk1:/slot0:) are mounted in the Route Processor (MSFC) as network file systems in hybrid mode. The behavior is similar to that of the tftp: file system.
I'm afraid it cannot work this way, you should try to treat the supervisor like a tftp server from MSFC2's point of view.
