booting problem in 2950

Hi

I have a 2950 which was working fine. Once when I erased the startup-config and reloaded it. Then it came to a promt like this:

switch:

switch:

switch: dir flash:

Directory of flash:/

7740416 bytes available (1024 bytes used)

switch:

Like I have displayed above, I typed the command "dir flash:"

When I issue this command, I should see the flash file. But in this case, I don't see any flash files. Has my IOS got deleted or something.

I have other 2950 switches which are okay.

Any advice on how to boot this would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi

Maybe some careless command has done this.Refer to following link for booting through load_helper.Flash seems okay, b'coz there is sizeable amount reflecting

Re: booting problem in 2950

Hi JD

Thanks a lot for your advice. I think my IOS has been deleted because I don't see any IOS file there. But I am wondering how it happened. Anyway this is what I see when I enter "dir flash:" command.

switch: dir flash:

Directory of flash:/

2 -rwx 3 env_vars

7739904 bytes available (1536 bytes used)

switch:

My switch is a 2950C-24

Cisco doesn't let me download the IOS as we don't have that sort of a contract with them.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Re: booting problem in 2950

Hi

Are the other switches of same make?I believe they are.You can always copy the IOS from switch and put it onto the not-working switch.

Hi JD

Thank you so much for your quick reply.

The switch that I'm having a problem is a 2950C-24.

My other switches are:

2950-12

2950-24

2950T-24

Can I download the IOS from these (e.g. from 2950T) and upload it to my 2950C-24

Thanks in advance!
