Hello, I am attempting an IOS upgrade on my Cat4k's. I've got two 4510R+E switches. I'm upgrading from 3.2.1.SG to 3.4.2.SG. As you can see below I've got 3.4.2 downloaded and stored in flash. The next step is to set the boot variable and reload. The issue is I cannot get the boot variable set to reflect the new 3.4.2 code. I have entered in the "boot system flash bootflash:file_name" command, which IOS takes, but then a "show bootvar" reflects the old image still as the variable. I've also tried the "no boot system" commands as well, with no luck. Below is the output of "show bootflash" and "show bootvar". Can someone help me with what I'm missing??
Thanks in advance-

You're welcome, I figured that out while replying to the thread myself.
It makes sense when you think about it - if you don't save the config, the switch will revert to using whatever bootvar is in startup-config so that's actually a more accurate report of the expected behavior upon reload.
