Partition on 4500

I have a 4500 router with this setting. I like to delete partition and make it one. Is it doable on 4500 series router? Here is the Sh Ver:

Hurd_R1#sh v

00:02:52: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console

Hurd_R1#sh ver

Hurd_R1 uptime is 2 minutes

4096K bytes of processor board System flash partition 1 (Read/Write)

4096K bytes of processor board System flash partition 2 (Read/Write)

Looks like the total Flash I have is 12MB, and want to make it to one so I can install the 12.1 IOS which requries atleast 8MB of Flash. I also opened the box and it had 3 chips each containing 4MB, I guess.



Re: Partition on 4500

The "no partition flash" command should help in removing the partitions.


Re: Partition on 4500

no this is not possible you have 2 4 MB simms If you partition the flash you must partition it as 2 4 MB partitions. The other 4 MB is bootflash you can not combine this with the flash partitions. In order to fit 12.1 code you must upgrade your flash simms

Also you only have16 MB of DRAM you may want to check the DRAM requirements
