CAT-6506: BOOTFLASH Directory shows 0 files inside

First of all thanking all of u that spent time in going thru my issues.

Here is the story:

I knew that one of my CAT-6506 ( Cat OS 6.3(5) ) here is been converted out from Native to Hybrid Long back. When I enter dir bootflash from Sup Mode, it shows that “no files on bootflash:”, though "show boot " ( bootvar) shows that last reboot took the “first image” image from directory directory "bootflash" ( sup-bootflash) . Pelase see below.

In_Qed_Cont_6506_02> show boot

BOOT variable = bootflash:,1;

CONFIG_FILE variable = slot0:switch.cfg

Configuration register is 0x10f

ignore-config: disabled

auto-config: non-recurring, overwrite, sync disabled

console baud: 9600

boot: image specified by the boot system commands

In_Qed_Cont_6506_02> dir bootflash:

No files on device

31981568 bytes available (0 bytes used)

Now my question here is

01. “ Am I going to be in trouble if I reboot this switch by any chance ?

02. Why didn’t I seen the Cat6000*.sup2.xxx file on sup-bootflash: ?

03. Do you think that file system format on Flash card is still on Native Mode (not CAT OS format )hence it is unable to see it ?

04. What do u advice in this scenario. ? I have already opened a TAC case while my

TAC engineer didn’t given me a proper answer

05. If item#3 is TRUE, Can I format my sup-bootflash ? I hope this doesn’t impact on its switching/mls/l2 process unless it gets powerdown in between .

Looks to have your Immediate help. Once again thanks for bearing me …

Re: CAT-6506: BOOTFLASH Directory shows 0 files inside

After conversion from Native IOS to hybrid, the file systems need to be formated as they are incompatible. It is documented in step 12

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/473/80.shtml

Format the bootflash and then copy the CATOS files and you will be good to go
