Combine flash memory

Anyone who can help me find the command to combine my 2x32mb flash to have a single 64MB flash memory so I could upload an IOS larger than 32MB?

Thanks!

Hi,

I am not sure how format would help. As i went through a cisco documnet which says partition can work for integrating 2 flash.

Partitions Flash memory.

Router(config)# partition flash partitions [size1 size2]

Partitions Flash memory on the Cisco 1600 and 3600 series.

Router(config)# partition flash-filesystem: [number-of-partitions] [partition-size]

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/12_2/configfun/configuration/guide/fcf009_ps1835_TSD_Products_Configuration_Guide_Chapter.html#wp1001191

let us know if it helps.

Re: Combine flash memory

U are absolutely correct, it is partition and not format.

It has been a long time since I used it on my 2500. and it definitely works as it shouls.

apologies for the hasty reply !

No, you can't do that. Get a bigger compact flash.
