usbflash not working c2911

Hi All,

I tried to copy my conf file to a USBflash drive but I cannot initialize the USBflash drive.

It asks me to format the USBflash, but when I say "yes" it gives an error.

Feb 21 11:18:40.799: %USBFLASH-5-CHANGE: usbflash1 has been inserted!

Feb 21 11:19:00.803: %USBFLASH-4-FORMAT: usbflash1 contains unexpected values in partition table or boot sector.  Device needs formatting before use!

yourname#fort

yourname#for

yourname#format usb

yourname#format usbflash1:

Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]y

Format operation will destroy all data in "usbflash1:".  Continue? [confirm]y

%Error formatting usbflash1: (No such device)

yourname#

When I connect it to a 2811 its working perfectly

OOHQ_GWVO_01#sh usbflash0:
No files on device

2116747264 bytes available (0 bytes used)

Hello Mr. Deraeve,

Thank you for your question.

However, the Small Business Support Community is limited to Cisco Small Business Products and the 2911 router is an Enterprise level product.

You might consider to ask this question at Enterprise forum to get a better response.

Hi Philippe,

Please check the rommon version on 2911 - command "sh rom-monitor".

If the version is 20081108, you might need to upgrade it  - I saw sumilar issues in 890 ISR line with this ROMMON versions due to bug that caused incorrect PCI registers change.

Kind Regards,

Ivan Shirshin

Hi Philippe,

I had to format mine in windows first before I could use it in a 2911.  Make sure you format as FAT16 as well.  Not sure if this is a feature or issue.

Thanks!

Nick
