cisco 7206VXR router keep booting on older IOS

Postby Guest » Thu Sep 30, 2010 3:23 pm


Hi.

I wanted to boot a cisco 7206VXR router on IOS c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin.

However the router keep booting on the older IOS c7200-is-mz.122-15.B.bin.

The configuration/status before I reload:

1. Configuration register is 0x2102

2. gw-btvoice-sto2#sh run | in boot sys

boot system flash disk2:c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin

3. gw-btvoice-sto2#sh bootvar

BOOT variable = disk2:c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin,1;

CONFIG_FILE variable does not exist

BOOTLDR variable does not exist

Configuration register is 0x2102

4. gw-btvoice-sto2#sh disk2:

-#- --length-- -----date/time------ path

1     16371056 Apr 05 2009 17:51:12 c7200-is-mz.122-15.B.bin

21823488 bytes available (42401792 bytes used)

5. verify /md5 disk2:c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin provides the correct checksum

Hello Simon,

you may need to load a newer boot loader code in the bootflash to be able to load the new image.

You see that you hace a 12.2(4) boot loader in bootflash c7200-kboot-mz.122-4.BW

try to copy in bootflash the appropriate boot loader for the new image and to set the boot loader image

Hope to help

Giuseppe

I tried your suggestion with no success.

I copied c7200-kboot-mz.124-18e.bin into the bootflash. This was the situation when I reloaded

gw-btvoice-sto2#sh bootvar

BOOT variable = disk2:c7200-is-mz.124-18e.bin,1;

CONFIG_FILE variable does not exist

BOOTLDR variable = bootflash:c7200-kboot-mz.124-18e.bin

Configuration register is 0x2102

Untill now I reloaded from remote but decided to reload from the console. One of the first thing displayed on the console is

string is disk2:c7200-is-mz.122-15.B.bin

I don't know where this string is set but this must be the reason why the boot cmd's have no impact. Here is the output from the reload

--------------------------

gw-btvoice-sto2#reload

Proceed with reload? [confirm]
