Cisco 2621 reload problems

When I reload a cisco 2621 using 12.2(7) software it goes through the start up intialisation and then comes back with a %Software-forced reload message and then hangs.

Any ideas ?

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

Yeh I've seen that link but it referes to crashes that haven't been induced by a reload.

Here's what happens;

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

try to break in to rommon change the config register to x2142 then reset . See if the box boots up ignoring the settings in NVRAM

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

I can't break into the box once it has hung, but when I power off/on it loads OK.

I've just tried setting the confreg to 0x2142 in global config mode and issued a reload, but again it's hung.

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

how did you change the config register in global config if the box hangs ? Do you have 2 verisions of code on the box and are able to load one code but not the other ?

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

what code is loaded ?

can you paste in your boot statements and a sh flash

You need to break in to the box when th # signs are streaming across the screeen

Re: Cisco 2621 reload problems

HI

You should set your configure registry to 0x2102 that solve your problem and then reset your router .
