ROMMON Issue

Hello,

I have a 7603 with the following message;

Router#sh rom-monitor slot 1 sp

Region F1: INVALID

Region F2: INVALID

Currently running ROMMON from S (Gold) region

Can anyone provide a link or summary of the ROMMON regions and/or the procedure for moving/loading the ROMMON image to regions 1 and/or 2? Thank you,

Bob Kirk

Re: ROMMON Issue

Hi Bob,

I have found this link which may be able to help.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/customer/products/hw/switches/ps708/prod_release_note09186a00801fc897.html

In the document it describes that there are three regions (including the Gold region) where versions of the ROMMON image can be stored. You can use the upgrade rom-monitor slot preference and upgrade rom-monitor slot preference commands to switch between regions.

The ROMMON software upgrade feature allows you to have two upgraded ROMMON images (one in region F1, the second in region F2) in addition to the Gold ROMMON stored on the one-time programmable (OTP) EPROM section of the ROMMON. Use the upgrade rom-monitor slot preference command to select which ROMMON will be the preferred ROMMON the next time that the system is booted. You can change the preference as often as you like. The changes do not take effect until you reset the system.

Hope that helps.
