SUP720 or MSFC 's ROMMON ?

Hello again,

The new IOS 12.2(18)SXF4 that I like to upgrade is larger then the sup-bootflash capacity, so I need to have access to disk0:

question:

1. I need to upgrade the ROMMON but which one? the SUP320 or the MSFC ?

2. The command in the release note, attached below show:

# show rom-monitor slot 1 rp

( sp for the SUP720 )

My Cat6509 did not take the rp or sp, please see below.

Then if I went ahead with the upgrade command without rp ( or sp ), the DFC#1 got involved somehow?

I confused, please advise.

Leo
