Image upgrade failed - rommon now

Wes Schochet

Hi all-

I have an old 6509 with a SUP720 that I seem to have killed. I was trying to upgrade the code.

Before the reboot, she file systems looked like this:

and the sup-bootdisk: directory looked like this:

I changed the boot line in the config from
    boot system flash sup-bootdisk:s72033-ipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI13.bin
to
   boot system flash sup-bootdisk:s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXJ10.bin

After reload, it now boots to rommon and I don't see anything on the disk:

Should there be a sup-bootdisk device? 

I used this same procedure successfully on another similar device and it worked fine. What did I do wrong? Where do I go from here? Can I resurrect this SUP?

Thanks for your help!

Wes

The internal CF is dead.  

If I remembered correctly, the internal CF is located at the (left or right) edge of the line card.  Replace that with anything 2 Gb.  Original 1 Gb CF are still available in e-bay.

"bootdisk:" is the supervisor card's "on board" and internal CF.  

"disk0: is the supervisor card's external CF slot.  

While in ROMMON, post the complete output to the command "dir disk0:" & "dir bootflash:".  If "dir bootflash:" is not accepted, try "dir flash:".

The USB is disabled by default.

Thanks for the response - back at this.  disk0 is fine. I can boot from it.    It's the internal that seems to be the problem.  This is a different switch, but same behavior, so I thought perhaps I am missing something.  

 

rommon 17 > dir bootflash:

Initializing ATA monitor library...
Directory of bootflash:

rommon 18 > dir disk0:

Initializing ATA monitor library...
Directory of disk0:

12217 145281892 -rw- s72033-adventerprisek9_wan-mz.122-33.SXJ10.bin
5104 18050 -rw- 20070718-confg
5106 25030 -rw- 20070914HSRP.config
5108 296673 -rw- start

Also, I cannot format the sup-bootdisk on this:

c6509-1-lab.cbc#format sup-bootdisk:
Format operation may take a while. Continue? [confirm]y
Format operation will destroy all data in "sup-bootdisk:". Continue? [confirm]y
%Error formatting sup-bootdisk: (TF I/O failed in data-out phase)

Not sure why I can't use the internal flash on these.  I may just buy come CF card and get on with my life!

Any insights would be appreciated - thanks again!

Thanks @Leo Laohoo - twice for this one - I also found an old post of yours talking about the 2101 vs 2102 confreg setting which was part of the issue!
