Fail to recover the cisco ios 3560

Hi

See full document here on how to restore an image. Read in fully before doing any configuration.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_tech_note09186a0080169696.shtml

Youa re using an incorrect copy command. It is supposed to look like this.

copy xmodem: flash:c2955-i6q4l2-mz.121-13.EA1.bin

Re: Fail to recover the cisco ios 3560

First tip is to remove the teamviewer ID and password from your output.

Next, i dont see where you ran the 'copy xmodem' command. You need to run this command from the CLI and then send xmodem from hyperterm.

Specific instructions are here.

    1. Issue the copy xmodem:                 flash:c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEB4.bin command on the                 switch.

      Here is an example:

      switch: copy xmodem: flash:c2955-i6q4l2-mz.121-13.EA1.bin
      Begin the Xmodem or Xmodem-1K transfer now...
      CCC
    2. From the top of the HyperTerminal window, choose Transfer                 > Send File.

      192-d.gif

    3. Choose the Xmodem protocol in the Send File                 dialog box and click Browse in order to select the Cisco IOS                 image (.bin file) that you downloaded previously.

      192-e.gif

    4. Click Send in order to begin the Xmodem                 transfer.

      192-f.gif

      The Xmodem file transfer begins. This transfer can take up to 2                 hours, which depends on the size of the image.

      !--- If the Xmodem file transfer fails for some reason, restart the process.
      !--- If the Xmodem file transfer is successful, you return to the 
      !--- switch: prompt.
      
      switch:
  1. Boot the new image that you just copied over with the Xmodem             procedure.

    Issue the boot             flash:filename command, as this example             shows:

    switch: boot flash:c2955-i6q4l2-mz.121-13.EA1.bin
    Loading "flash:c2955-i6q4l2-mz.121-13.EA1.bin"...###############################
    ################################################################################
    
    !--- Output suppressed.
    
    Press RETURN to get started!
    Switch>
    
    !--- The bootup was successful.
    
    

    Be sure to verify that your boot statements are set             correctly.

Re: Fail to recover the cisco ios 3560

please check it...

Simply i plugin the power cable and wait until the switch comes to the stable position but fail to come in normal manner.

Cisco SYST led continously on blinking and  when the SYST LED as well as STAT led comes to stable here is

Snapshot .... unreadable console output

Now i unplug the power cable and press the mode button and again power up the cable now when the cisco SYST led becomes orange and comes to green i release the mode button but unable to enter in this mode

switch:

and SYST light continously on blinking and blank screen and i continously pressing enter



However last time the IOS was uploaded successfully but when i applied this command

switch:     boot      flash:c3560-ipbase-mz.122-25.SEB4.bin

switch becomes restart and then its error as mentioned in the above snapshot.
