Re: Failover IOS


Fist is you look in the flash what file do you have ? and what version are we talking about (from / to)

You can have a boot ldr that is poiting to the old PIXOS Image.

Re: Failover IOS

I have only one file in flash which is image.

I applied this command and got the following error,

fw(config)# boot system flash:/image

ERROR: Unable to set this url, it has already been set

Remove the first instance before adding this one

after reboot it is again giving me same error,

PDC-Srv-525-1# d


Mate version 7.2(3) is not identical with ours 7.2(3)8


ebuBeginning configuration replication: Sending to mate.


Re: Failover IOS

you need to perform "copy tftp flash:" again.

When you do it from "rommon" mode, it only

copies from tftp to the RAM, NOT Flash. Do it

again with "copy tftp flash:" and you will see

the image in flash.
