GOLD test on sup720


is it possible to run GOLD test on supervisor engine which is in ROMMON mode?

A supervisor 720 3BXL got stuck in rommon and I want to check if it has some hardware problems.

So I want to put it in some 6500/7600 chassis with already working sup 720 and run GOLD test on that problematic supervisor.

But when I do so I get this message on console:

Router#diagnostic start module 6 test

% No diagnostic test is available for Module 6

Router#sh module

I would recommend that you console into the Supervisor card in slot 6 and reboot/reseat the card.  Post the entire bootup process as this may provide you with some clue.

Oh freak me!  This is a DUPLICATE POST!

Re: GOLD test on sup720


it's not a duplicate post :-)

This one is only in regard to GOLD test on supervisor that is in ROMMON mode.

I'm interested in this generaly because I have few different supervisors stucked in rommon mode for different reasons,

and I'm trying to find mechanism to diagnose if that is a hardware failure.

But it seems (I'm not sure yet ) that GOLD doesn't work on supervisors in ROMMON.

I attached the bootup process in the other post :-)
