The system is unable to boot automatically.

My 2960-24LT-L refuses to boot properly. I've done all I can and it continues to do as it pleases. Here's the log:

All I can see is the switch

All I can see is the switch booting from ROMmon manually.  I don't see anything what you're describing.

Hi 

Hi 

What is the config register setting? Do a " show version" and the config register should be some thing like this "Configuration register is 0xF"

Thanks

Re: Hi

if you go into config boot system you can set it from manual mode.

 

boot man is the command.

 

then save it and you should be able to have it boot from whatever system is on there.
