Ios upgrade Failed

I have upgraded my cisco 4500 with a new ios. I have set "boot system bootflash:cat4000-i9s-mz.122-20.EWA.bin" in my config.

Still the switch is booting with the old ios.

I have search on the intenet on sometimes i see "boot system FLASH bootflash:cat4000-i9s-mz.122-20.EWA.bin"

Is there a difference between?

Also i have a other 4500 upgraded with a supervisor II module with no problems.

Re: Ios upgrade Failed

It's "boot system flash bootflash:".

Where:

"boot" is the action.

"System" is what you want to boot.

"flash" is where you want it to run.

"bootflash:" is the device/directory your image resides

" is the IOS name & version you want to load.

Re: Ios upgrade Failed

I have uploaded the new IOS in the normal way. In my config there is:

boot system flash bootflash:cat4000-i9s-mz.122-20.EWA.bin

Still it's booting with the old ios.

When i do a sh ver i see

System image file is "bootflash:"

When i do a dir i see

1 -rwx 10249580 Feb 1 2005 04:52:47 +00:00 cat4000-i9s-mz.122-18.EW.bin

2 -rwx 12468232 Jan 26 2005 04:13:29 +00:00 cat4000-i9s-mz.122-20.EWA.bin

Sh bootvar show the following:

BOOT variable = bootflash:cat4000-i9s-mz.122-20.EWA.bin,1

What is going wrong?

Delete the old files and reboot.

Re: Ios upgrade Failed

I am running into the same issue. Were you able to fix it? I know that I can delete the old file...but I want to minimize the risk as I am configuring this remotely etc.

Can you please let me know if you were able to get around this.

Re: Ios upgrade Failed

Set the BOOT parameters so that the switch boots up with the downloaded image when reloaded:

For Example:

switch: set BOOT flash:.bin

(substitute the image name above for the IOS name you loaded to flash)

Note: BOOT must be in capital letters.

the switch must boot automatically.

(b) switch: unset MANUAL_BOOT

Go to the enable mode and run the show boot command to verify the BOOT parameters
