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 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,

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.

 

 

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

 

Waiting for your reply,

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,
