I am having terrible difficulty upgrading the IOS on two MSFC's on a 6509. I am trying to copy the image from sup-slot0 to bootflash. Currently they are booting from the bootldr image. There is no IOS image on either of the MSFC's. The following is the outpout of myself trying to upgrade. I have done this a hundred times on other 6500's and I don't see what I am missing here, except for bad hardware, but two MSFC's at once, I doubt it.
Here is the dir slot0: from the supervisor:
Console> (enable) dir slot0:
-#- -length- -----date/time------ name
1 5197860 Nov 27 2001 07:59:17 cat6000-sup2.6-1-1d
2 1673992 Nov 27 2001 08:02:31 c6msfc2-boot-mz.121-7.E
3 11716124 Nov 27 2001 08:03:45 c6msfc2-jsv-mz.121-7a.E1
Here is the output from trying to copy the image over
It maybe that you need to re-format the PCMCIA card slot0: as it looks as though the msfc can't access it via the copy command. (This could be the issue if the PCMCIA card was originally formatted under Native IOS ?)
i.e from the supervisor [format slot0:]
You will of course need to reload the original images back onto slot0: afterwards.
Otherwise install a 'proven' pcmcia card from another cat6k and try it.
