I have 2 stacked C3750X-24T-E switches, I was able to downgrade to 12.2.55-SE13 version and upgrade to 15.0.2-SE12 version, but when I try to upgrade to any 15.2 version including 15.2.4E8 and 15.2.4E9 switch just does not boot,
If it has older IOS on flash, on second attempt it boots old bin file, if I delete old IOS image 2 switches tries twice to boot 15.2 image and fails with this message and goes to rommon mode.
Boot process failed... The system is unable to boot automatically. The BOOT environment variable needs to be set to a bootable image.
I have tried upgrading with "archive download-sw" command and by just copying bin file to flash I always get same result.
in attaches picture failed attempt with old IOS image on flash.
p.s. I have C3KX-SM-10G modules Installed on switches. During upgrades I upgrade module software too, and also tried removing modules but result is the same.
- According to this link it should run :
- A possible cause could be that the intended image was not correctly loaded on the flash or got corrupted. You could install a working version and then have a look at the flash and check/verify the any/ new loaded-image with the md5sum:filename command before changing a boot variable and booting it.
>images pass md5 verification and exactly match with sum from Cisco download site
- Does this also include after they have been installed on the flash (and or are ready for being booted)?
