As the config files in CATOS are automatically saved in nvram in binary format you won't be able to view the file with any command. If you want you can save the config file to flash device copying it from nvram with command "copy config flash" and then type bootflash when it will ask you for Flash Device and once done you can view your file in dir flash: and your boot string will also work.
You can have a look at this link to know more about config files
Your switch goes to rommon everytime it is a power failure is a concern and I believe it is because of your config register which is set to 0x2 so change it to 0x2102 and see if this resolves your issue and leave the config file as it is in nvram.
I have other Cat4006 switches that I have done the same password-recovery procedure. And all switches had reg. 0x2 configured, and booted up, its only one switch that stopped in rommon. the only difference i can see. is this config_file variable.
On the other switches the use binary and
CONFIG_FILE variable = bootflash:switch.cfg
The "faulty" switch
CONFIG_FILE variable =
I will try to set reg. to 0x2102 at next service window and i will tell you how it went.
Every once in awhile we see stuff like this with the catos box infact something like this just happened last night when we reloaded a 2980 and for some reason it lost the vlan info so we had to send somemone to manually put in enough config to get it on the air and then config net the tftpboot file to it , don't know why this happens ,we were upgrading the boxes to crypto 7.6.17 code . I think you can save the config to a file in bootflash if you chose to go that way . The set boot auto-config command is a one time shot only and will only work over the next switch reset . If you save the config to bootflash you can look at the file with the "show file bootflash:" command .
