7609 IOS Upgrade Problem

I have cisco 7609 with two SUP-720, WISM, and ethernet modules. Currently I have IOS s72033_rp-ADVIPSERVICESK9_WAN-M), Version 12.2(33)SRA5,

Because this IOS is not detecting the WISM. I am trying the IOS s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15 that i have successfully installed in 6513 catalyst which also include the WISM. But now same IOS for 7609 is not working for me.

I followed the below mention steps.

copy ftp: disk0:

Address or name of remote host []?

Source filename [s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin]?

Destination filename [s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin]?


Loading s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[OK - 63477880/4096 bytes]

copy disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15a.bin slavedisk0

boot system flash disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15a.bin

but no luck. The Router 7609 goes to mointor mode after this.

When i verify the IOS it gave me following error

ATCT-BD-ULV02-7609-01#verify di


%Filesystem does not support verify operations

Verifying file integrity of disk0:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin

and even with old image i m not able to write configuration on standby. I m gettin following error.


00:09:34: %PCMCIAFS-SP-5-DFS_CLOSE_ERR: Error during close of the file s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin. Failed to flush the remaining file data.

Re: 7609 IOS Upgrade Problem

You copied a file called "s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15.bin" from your FTP to Disk0 without a problem.

But you tried to copy "s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15a.bin" from Disk0 to SlaveDisk0. Do you have "s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-18.SXF15a.bin" in Disk0?
