recovering 6509 ios image

Hi

I'm trying to xmodem an image on to a recently purchased, secondhand 6509 sup2 MSFC2 which is completely offnet with no image on there at all.

The problem is that whenever I try using xmodem to transfer the image over from my laptop it fails, for any 6500 IOS image that I have tried up to now, these are all about 18meg and above.

Can anyone advise what the issue could be? I'm using xmodem from rommon which is consistently failing.

thanks

Chris

Hi,

I think the image is too big for the xmodem speed to handle, I would suggest to console into it and move the image via tftp. I think it would be the easiest way.

thanks

Hi,

Thanks for the response. There is no tftp available from this version of rommon 7.1(1) or I would do exactly that.

The problem may have been me setting the speed up to 38400bps instead of 9600bps. I'm trying it again at 9600 right now.
