tftp booting a C3750G-24T ?

Hi,

I've got a C3750G-24T that I'd like to boot over tftp, but it just isn't working. I know that the tftp server is working correctly and have tftp copy'ed files between the switch sand the server.

The boot system line is

#sh boot

BOOT path-list      : tftp://192.168.9.21/c3750-ipbase-mz.122-35.SE5.bin

The boot loader is "BOOTLDR: C3750 Boot Loader (C3750-HBOOT-M) Version 12.2(25r)SEC, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc4)".

Any help?

Thanks,

Mark

Mark,

By default,  a configuration register setting that tells it to boot using the first IOS image stored in Flash memory. If a valid IOS image isn’t found in Flash, it will then attempt to “netboot” using an IOS image stored on a TFTP server. If even this fails, the default configuration register tells to boot using the image stored in ROM.

The following example shows a router configured to boot from an image in Flash, followed by an image stored on a TFTP server

Router(config)#boot system flash c3750-js-l.120-7.T
Router(config)#boot system tftp c3750-js-l.120-7.T 192.168.1.100

After issuing the boot system commands, they can be viewed using show run.

Hope to Help !!

Re: tftp booting a C3750G-24T ?

Hi Ganeshh,

Thanks for your reply. Those commands did not work. Firstly, the IOS (c3750-ipbase-mz.122-35.SE5.bin) would not retain two boot lines. Only the last one entered survived. Secondly, the syntax above did not work. Here is the help output:

switch(config)#boot system ?

  WORD    pathlist of boot file(s) ... file1;file2;...

  switch  Set system image for switches in the stack


ec2switch(config)#boot system tftp ?
 
Any thoughts? Your help is much appreciated!
Regards,
Mark
