Cat6509 - partial config loss

Hi,

I have two 6509's at the core of my network (MSFC's and Supervisor module's)

After an unexpected power cut the second core failed to boot up, I gave the unit another power cycle and the unit booted up. The router module booted ok.

However, when connecting into the second core (switching), most of the configuration had disappeared, i.e. hostname, motd, password, stp etc. basic module and vlan configuration was still in place.

I've looked extensively at the unit and can't see why it has lost part of its config, any idea's??????

Thanks

Brett

Re: Cat6509 - partial config loss

I think it's the nature of the beast . Every once in a great while we have seen this happen too with any of the catos boxes , haven't seen it on a IOS . It's pretty rare but it does happen. Think it happens if you happen to lose power and when the power comes on again and it has started to boot you lose power again is when it gets screwed up (speculation) . The only thing you can do is config net the config off your tftpboot server and continue on .
