After module insertion switch gone to ROMMON monitor

Hi,

I have taken 6509 switch and inserted module for testing.

Switch gone to ROMMON mode and not booting normally.

It is saying unable to open the boot file.

It is happened with 6506 also. These two are offline switches. But luckily my production switch didn't go to ROMMON mode after crash.

What might be reason?

Regards

Can someone suggest the procedure to bring the switch out from ROMMON.

Re: After module insertion switch gone to ROMMON monitor

This is probably the same switch you posted question on crash, soI assume it's native IOS. the sup720 as you know have 2 processors, SP and RP. I said this because it depends on whuch processor is in rommon. If you are lucky and you are in SP rommon, then can try manually booting the switch with "boot bootflash:", but make sure there is an image in there - "dir bootflash:".

Please rate if this post helps.

Re: After module insertion switch gone to ROMMON monitor

What module did you insert?

What version of firmware are you using? (IOS/CatOS?)

What Sup modules do you have? What code are they running?

What other modules are resident in each of the failing switches, and what slot are they in?

Let us know

Re: After module insertion switch gone to ROMMON monitor

Many times it is becasue the IOS/CatOS image you are running couldn't identify the module you inserted. Could be the image is below the min. requirement for the module or the module is inserted into the wrong slot (for certain modules). So I would check those first.

Hope this helps

Gary
