How to copy an image to disk0:, accessed from the MSFC in a Cisco Catalyst 6500 switch running in hybrid mode

Resolution

Issue the boot and copy commands from the Multilayer Switch Feature Card (MSFC) in hybrid mode, to access disk0:. When accessed in this way, the disk0: is known as sup-disk0:.

To copy an image from a TFTP server to disk0:, log into the Supervisor, and issue the copy tftp bootdisk: or the copy tftp disk0: command to download the image to the Supervisor bootdisk or to one of the flash cards.

Note: To free up space as necessary on either of these devices, issue the delete bootdisk: or the delete disk0:filename command. It is not necessary to issue a command to erase deleted files from the device.

Alternatively, at the MSFC prompt, issue the copy tftp sup-disk0command to copy an image from a TFTP server to disk0:.

Router# copy tftp sup-disk0
IP address or name of remote host []? 10.1.1.2Name of file to copy from
[]?

Router#

Note: The dir command cannot be used to list the files on disk0: from the MSFC. To list the files, issue the dir command from the Supervisor.
