6500 NATIVE IOS TO CATOS CONVERSION

Hi,

We are trying to convert the sup720 running native ios to Catos. We are following the cisco document. the link is http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps700/products_tech_note09186a00801350b8.shtml#720

We are not able to proceed from Step 11 as mentioned in the document. The system is not detecting the sup-bootflash:

Then we booted using disk0:.

Then in Step 20 when we are trying to format the bootflash: it is throwing a error invalid device.

if we give dir bootflash:

it is throwing the error

"error = -24

Open device bootflash failed (bad device info block)"

The system has been converted to catos but we are not able to use the sup-bootflash:

Please let me know how to fix this.

Krishna.

Re: 6500 NATIVE IOS TO CATOS CONVERSION

you may have a corrupted bootflash or worse, a damaged bootflash. (looks like the format portion of the conversion could have corrupted/damaged the bootflash)

try to remove the sup720 engine and assure the flash is seated correctly. (reseat if you can.) and then try to access it when back online.

or if you need assistance and/or replacement you should contact TAC at http://cisco.com/tac or 800.553.2447
