Catalyst 6509 losing it's config

I have a Cat 6509 (IOS / Sup720-3B) that Im testing.  Each time the unit is power cycled it completely loses it's config.  I've checked the config register (0x2102)- why on earth would it lose it's config on reboot?

 

Thanks

Greg

It seems as if it only loses the config on power cycle.  Not from a standard reload.  It loses it only when power is shut off.

Would you do a dir all and see if the startup-config is saved under a different name.

Default should be startup-config

It shows to be in NVRAM- this was after it was just saved.  I will pull the same thing after power cycle.

It does show the same thing

It does show the same thing after power cycle- but it does not let me copy over the startup config to running config.  and it does not load it.  However the config registry is correct.
