Changing Catalyst 3750 Console Speed

Does anyone know if the console speed of a Catalyst 3750 can be changed? The switch does not have a valid IOS image installed and the only prompt accessible is the Switch: recovery console prompt. Before using the xmodem I am hoping there is a way to increase the baud rate to speed things up a bit.

Check out document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps282/products_installation_guide_chapter09186a008007dfca.html

It available witout a login. Look in the section:

"Modifying the Configuration Register in Menu Mode"

Good info to print and keep on hand, cuz when you need it...

HTH.

Thank you for trying to help but I am not looking for the 3700 series router info. I know with routers it is quite simple. I am interested to know if there is a way to do it on the Catalyst 3750 series switch.

I had actually gone through this document before posting the question. It does not tell me whether it is possible to change the baud rate before initiating the xmodem transfer.

Hi,

you can configure the Baud rate using "speed" command console interface.

interface console 0

speed 115200

exit

I am in the "SWITCH:" mode and not normal configuration mode. Nevermind ...

I just faced the same problem and found the solution in this document:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps628/products_tech_note09186a0080169696.shtml

the command is

set BAUD 115200

this reduced the time from 5 hours to 52 minutes.

don't forget to change the baud rate on your PC too
