Re: Partitioned Of The Flash

Hi Friend,

By partitioning the flash memory you are creating two logical areas in which data can be stored and accessed by the router. This allows the administrator to write an IOS image to one partition of the flash while a separate image is running in the other partition.

One advantage to this method is that no router downtime is required to upload a new IOS image, whereas using the Flash Load Helper requires a minor amount of router downtime.

HTH, Please rate if it does.

Re: Partitioned Of The Flash
