Failing to load IOS

Trying to load 12.4(13b) on a --

cisco 7206VXR (NPE400) processor (revision A) with 491520K/32768K bytes of
memory.

I have the following boot sequence defined --

boot-start-marker
boot system disk1:c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin
boot system slot0:c7200-is-mz.123-22.bin
boot-end-marker


Both images are there.

Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

Sorry, disregard the previous message, hit send by accident before it was completed.

Trying to load 12.4(13b) on a --

cisco 7206VXR (NPE400) processor (revision A) with 491520K/32768K bytes of
memory.

I have the following boot sequence defined --

boot-start-marker
boot system disk1:c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin
boot system slot0:c7200-is-mz.123-22.bin
boot-end-marker


Both images are there.

gw1.armplc#dir disk1:
Directory of disk1:/

1 -rw- 26027532 Mar 29 2012 10:32:38 +00:00 c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin

40759296 bytes total (14729216 bytes free)

gw1.armplc#dir slot0:
Directory of slot0:/

1 -rw- 17839240 Apr 6 2011 14:12:43 +00:00 c7200-is-mz.123-22.bin

20578304 bytes total (2738936 bytes free)

Yet after bootup the router is still running the 12.3(22) version.

I assume the problem is the amount of ram, since the feature navigator shows that the router requires 48meg for 12.4(13b), and show ver shows it only has 32 meg (is that correct)? But the feature navigator also shows that 12.3(22) requires 48meg, and that loads fine.

So I'm looking for a sanity check as to whether or not I am misreading the feature navigator or the router info, and whether or not something other than the amount of ram is likely to be the problem.

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

What 'show bootvar' says? Also when you're intending to boot from
local file system I'd recommend not to miss keyword 'flash' in 'boot
system' command - boot system flash disk1:c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

Why just delete the Boot system command. Try just use one boot system command. If cannot will go directly into the Rommon mode, use boot command will load the old ios.

Thanks and regards,

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

BTW, what does the number just after the file name in the BOOT variable represent?

gw1.armplc#show bootvar
BOOT variable = disk1:c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin,12;slot0:c7200-is-mz.123-22.bin,12;
^^ ^^

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

Is this a case where a bootldr file is needed? Does the ROMMON understand
the disk1: filesystem? In ROMMON, can you do a 'dev' and see the
filesystem, or do a 'dir' on it? I haven't played with too many of the
older 7200s, but I seem to remember this.

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

> And what is the boot process stating? i.e. when it is booting, does it try and load 124-13b and fail, or simply load 123-22?

I have been doing most of this work remote from the site, though I may travel to the site and reboot with a plug into the console port to answer this question.

> Is this a case where a bootldr file is needed? Does the ROMMON understand the disk1: filesystem?

Again, I haven't gotten much chance to see what the ROMMON thinks, as this is a production system in a remote facility. I do note however that we have two other 7200's that load IOS fine from disk0, but your question led me to look at the Boot info.

The other two are running --

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(1r) [dchih 1r], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
BOOTLDR: 7200 Software (C7200-BOOT-M), Version 12.0(24)S, EARLY DEPLOYMENT RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

The system that won't load 12.4 from disk0: is --

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.1(20000710:044039) [nlaw-121E_npeb 117], DEVELOPMENT SOFTWARE
BOOTLDR: 7200 Software (C7200-IS-M), Version 12.3(22), RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

I tried verifying the file as suggested.

gw1.armplc#verify disk1:c7200-is-mz.124-13b.bin
%Filesystem does not support verify operations
gw1.armplc#

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

Also, just as a sanity check --

I cannot find a listing for separate ram for the IOS. Does the NPE-400 set
aside memory for the IOS load from the main memory? And if so, is that
amount of memory dynamic? If so I can assume the 512 meg of ram in the box
is enough and the amount of memory for storing the IOS is not the problem.

This problem was fixed by upgrading the bootstrap software from 11.2 to --

BOOTLDR: 7200 Software (C7200-BOOT-M), Version 12.0(24)S

Then the bootldr could read the disk1 entry and load the IOS from it.

So the router loaded 12.4(13b) fine now and is running with that.
Unfortunately, this did not fix the problem it was hoped it would fix, the
problem with QoS over multilink PPP.

Re: Failing to load IOS [In reply to]

You can run latest 151 on npe-400

Why dont you try that instead of going from one outdated ios to another?
