Level 1

Hello Dears 

I have a problem , my core router 6500 when i reload it or power cycle it , it doesn't load the configuration  i saved it loads the ios image that contains no config at all , how can i make it load the image that contain all of the config i saved , another issue i have is that when i try the 
router(config)boot supboot-disk0:ios image
it says that there is no HA to support the boot config 
i need to load the ios image that i want and save all configuration in it and when i reload it , it should load the latest configuration that i saved 

thanks

Hello!

 

Which is the "show bootvar" output? please paste the "show ver" and show bootvar from the device here.

Hello Diana 

thanks for your reply , i want to load this image 

sup-bootdisk:sup-bootdisk:s72033-adventerprise-mz.151-2.SY7.bin
and save configurations in it and if i reload the router or power cycle it 
it should load the image i mentioned and all of the configs that i saved .


Best Regards .

Please try this way: boot system flash disk0:s72033-adventerprise-mz.151-2.SY7.bin and paste the show bootvar after that.

 

Best Regards,

Router(config)#boot system flash disk0:s72033-adventerprise-mz.151-2.SY7.bin

okay now should i copy the running config and reload the router ?
and after that if i saved a list of configurations and reloaded the router how can i be sure that it will be saved 

best regards 

Sorry but I can't see that the Boot variable has been set in the last "show bootvar", so is not recomendable to reload after we can find a way to set this properly. Let me see and I will try to get a better option.

 

Best Regards,

many thanks diana i'll be waiting

This is the right output, yes you can reload the device.
