Difference Between Bootloader Bootflash And System Flash Bootflash

4 posts in this topic

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 [b]bootldr bootflash [/b]and [b]system flash bootflash[/b]. 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

Thank you for your reply. Its appreciated.


[b]bootloader[/b] and[b] boot system [/b]should show up on [b]sh run[/b]? If it is not in [b]sh run[/b], do we need to show up [b]bootloader[/b] and [b]boot systm [/b]on sh run?

Waiting for your reply,
Thanks a lot

Hi


Initially I powered up a Cisco 6509 switch (hybrid). I have attached [b]running config file [/b]and [b]sh version [/b]from L3 switch. The running config file does not show up [b]boot system flash bootflash [/b]and [b]boot bootldr bootflash [/b]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,
