Hi

Could you please give the difference between bootldr bootflash and system flash bootflash?


example :boot system flash bootflash:c6msfc-dsv-mz.121-20.E.bin
boot bootldr bootflash:c6msfc-boot-mz.121-20.E2


I have attached running config file from a layer 3 switch. Its does not show up bootldr bootflash and system flash bootflash. Do i need those two commands in the running config file , if so what do i need to do?

Any help is appreciated,

Thanks a lot in advance,

Regards,

Hi


boot bootldr is to specify where your boot image is located. On a c6k the boot image is used to download the IOS from the Sup to the MSFC

boot system is to specify where your IOS image is

Hi


Initially I powered up a Cisco 6509 switch (hybrid). I have attached running config file and sh version from L3 switch. The running config file does not show up boot system flash bootflash and boot bootldr bootflash commands. Do I really need those commands on running config file for L3 switch? If so, what upgrade should I make?



I need your expert advice. Please help me.

Waiting for your reply,

Thanks a lot,
