Hi cisco gurus!
I had an issue with my cisco 4900m, after firmware upgrade. Finally I could reboot the switch using cat4500e-ipbasek9-mz.152-4.E8.bin
The thing is : How should I do the upgrade and also what is this file for? Should I also copy for the upgrade or it's just for rom boot
Thanks for your answer. The thing is my switch is 4900m and the firmware is cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E8.bin
Should I use universal too?
Thanks for your answer! Exactly, number 4 was the bin I haved installed
Let me show a dir of my FS
switch4900m#dir Directory of bootflash:/ 23 -rw- 41482478 Jul 10 2019 22:38:08 -03:00 cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E8.bin 6 -rw- 14673 Jul 10 2019 22:40:00 -03:00 cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E2.bin 122007552 bytes total (72515584 bytes free) switch4900m#verify /md5 cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E2.bin ....Done! verify /md5 (bootflash:cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E2.bin) = cf1e2f36e3eae5dc0ba8f15820905097
switch4900m#show bootvar BOOT variable = bootflash:cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E8.bin,1; CONFIG_FILE variable = BOOTLDR variable does not exist Configuration register is 0x2102
This is my bootvar.
What I find extrange is the size of the cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E2.bin. Is that correct? Should be 40 mb.
Let me know if I had to change something. I don't want to reload and have a failure.
hi thks for your answer
This is my verify command
verify /md5 (bootflash:cat4500e-entservicesk9-mz.152-4.E8.bin) = dccb54dc6197d45d439c1d26b0767626
Seems to be fine! Do you think I can reboot the sw without any problem?
What about the ipbase file? Do I need it?
Yes looks fine now , leave the ipbase in the flash its not really needed but if something goes seriously wrong always good to have an image in flash you know you can get the device back up on
