ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Hi there,

I'm having a bit of a struggle here, I'm hoping somebody can help me out.  I've trawled the site for days trying to find a solution but no joy so far.

Here's the story.  Our company received a load of secondhand kit in many various states, most of it sup1a's and sup2-2ge's.

  I've been trying to get them back to at the very least router> or console(enable)>  So far no problems, until I met this beast.  I'm not too familiar with these as I'm a sup720 kind of guy so forgive me for any ignorance.  The msfc is at rommon, it cannot see its bootflash for reasons I cannot clarify (its been renamed/corrupted/something of the sort) therefore the pcmcia slot is disabled for use on mod 16, so I can't boot from slot0:/disk0:.  Nor can I boot from tftp as whenever i set this sup as active it disables the x6148-rj45 card I usually use.  Can anyone think of anything?  I've attached the output I'm getting when I try and dir bootflash etc

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

   Sounds like they stripped out the images before selling .   You will have to get an image into bootflash so it can boot .  The other question is are these catos or IOS boxes ?    Do a search on the main cisco.com page for corrupted or missing  images .  Somehow you would have to determine if these are hybrid or IOS boxes .

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Hi Glen, I don't think thats whats happened, as I would be able to read the bootflash and at least see it as a device.  I have tried changing config-register to avoid any scripting but it changes nothing. it is a hybrid runnning catos (ie 2 cli's), and no the bootflash is completely unreadable, there is no way to get an image on there the standard way.  Is it possible to rename the monitor library? is this what they could have done?

Here's the text file that gives you a basic rundown of what I've got: (btw its the sup/msfc in mod 2/16 thats causing me grief)

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Hello,

Have you tried to format the flash? It looks like it is not being recognized by your system. After that you should be able to copy a new IOS and/or CatOS image to the card.

Regards.

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Hello,

I forgot to mention. I could not see a MSFC boot image. They are named c6msfc2-boot-xxx.bin. It is not required for a MSFC2 card to boot,but it is needed for TFTP transfers.

Cheers.

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Yep, see this is the whole point.  As I said above, the bootflash cannot be read/formatted/or even seen without this message appearing:

:

open: file "draco2-fslib-m" not found
open(): Open Error = -1
loadprog: error - on file open
cannot load the monitor library "bootflash:%draco2-fslib-m" from device: boot flashdir: cannot open device "bootflash:"
rommon 11 >

As it is in rommon, it (mod 16) will not show on the 'show mod' command

Also as you said, there is no boot image on the bootflash: (well this is more a guess as we cannot access the bootflash in any way shape or form for the msfc) I understand that a boot image is necessary, my quandary is how to get one on there when I cannot access the bootflash at all.

Note- I am reluctant to buy a new bootflash, so any solutions that don't involve that are more than welcome.

Also, Would a MSFC1 work in a sup2-2ge?  (I have a spare msfc1 knocking about)

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Hi,

Just to let you know (which may not be obvious to you, as you are Sup720 guy) that there were also Sup2-2GE models shipped and working WITHOUT a MSFC module fitted. There is an indication in your "sh ver" output that nothing is recognized in "slot 16" - it may also be as a result of faulty unit. The best way is to check physically, if you can. If you pull out the Sup2, looking from the front: MSFC (or the router engine) is a daughterboard located on your left (while PFC, smaller daughter board on your right).

Good luck,

Antonin

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Thanks for the heads up, but this definitely has a msfc2 on it

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

  If you console into the msf  , at the rommon prompt will it let you issue a  "boot sup-slot0:c6msfc2-dsv-mz.121-26.E2.bin"   command ?

Unfortunately not.

I'm starting to wonder if its an issue with the rom monitor itself....I tried a bootflash from another sup2+msfc2 combo and it worked, so I'm guessing I have either a corrupt bootflash, or at least the rom monitor is corrupted on that bootflash...

Re: ws-x6k-sup2-2ge +msfc problem

Since your sup2 got msfc, Read the section "MSFC is in the rommon state" in here.

Extra info :

For SUP2-2GE the MSFC (Routing engine) is optional. PFC (Forwarding  engine) card is by default installed. If there is no MSFC you can't  install ios to sup engine. That means you can only run CatOS.

Hope this helps.
