Sources of Cisco IOS Software
This chapter provides you with the information to configure your system so that
it can access the network or enable other hosts in the network to access your
system remotely by means of a Telnet connection. Detailed configuration
procedures are beyond the scope of this document, but you can find more
information in the “Post-Installation Procedures” section on page 4-63.
Sources of Cisco IOS Software
A default Cisco IOS software image for your system is available through any of
the following internal or external sources:
•
Onboard flash memory on the Route Processor (RP)—The latest Cisco IOS
software image is preloaded into the flash memory, and it is a single inline
memory module (SIMM). Flash memory is also referred to as nonvolatile
random access memory (NVRAM). NVRAM retains its contents when you
power off the system.
•
Flash memory card—A flash memory card (sometimes referred to as a flash
disk) inserted in a PCMCIA slot on the RP can serve as an external storage
medium for a default Cisco IOS software image.
•
TFTP server—A Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP) server in the network
can also function as an external source of a default Cisco IOS software image.
You can download a valid Cisco IOS software image from such a remote host
using a Telnet connection.
Preconfiguration Requirements
Before you configure your system, confirm the following:
•
All cards are securely installed.
•
All interface cable connections are secure and use cable strain relief where
provided.
•
All source power cables are securely fastened to the PDUs, and are connected
to the appropriate power source.

Boot Process Overview
•
Note
•
A terminal device is connected to the console port on the RP, powered on, and
configured for 9600 bps, 8 data bits, no parity, and 2 stop bits (9600, 8N2).
You must connect a terminal to the RP to perform the initial configuration
of the router.
The flash memory card that shipped with your router is installed in slot 0 of
the RP. The software configuration register is set to 0x0102 (default), causing
the system to boot automatically from the Cisco IOS software image stored
on the flash memory card.
After you complete the above, proceed to the following section to start the router.
Boot Process Overview
The following sequence summarizes a typical boot process.
1.
You power on the router.
2.
The RP MBus module receives +5 VDC voltage and starts executing MBus
software.
3.
The RP determines the router configuration by sending a message over the
MBus requesting all installed devices to identify themselves. Their responses
provide the RP with slot numbers, card, and component types.
4.
The RP, line cards, switch fabric cards (CSCs and SFCs), and alarm card are
then powered on.
5.
The power-on-reset logic of the RP is delayed to allow power for both local
and CSC clocks to stabilize.
6.
After the power-on reset logic is released, the RP begins to execute the ROM
monitor software.
– If the ROM monitor is configured to autoboot, the system automatically
loads and boots the Cisco IOS software.
– If the ROM monitor is not configured to autoboot, you must boot the
Cisco IOS software manually.

7.
When the Cisco IOS software boots, it polls all other cards in the system,
powers them on, and loads the Cisco IOS software they require.
8.
The RP waits for all other cards to finish their boot processes.
Powering On the Router and Observing the Boot
Process
The first time you start the router, observe the following conditions:
Step 1
Switch on all the circuit breakers that control power to the router.
Step 2
Observe the power entry module LEDs:
Step 3
•
AC PEMs—The green PWR OK LED should be on and the power supply fan
operating.
•
DC PEMs—The green PWR OK LED should be on and the power supply fan
operating.
Check the blower module:
•
Ensure that the green OK LED is on.
•
Listen for the blowers in the blower modules; you should hear them operating
immediately. In a noisy environment, the blowers may be difficult to hear.
You can place your hand in front of the exhaust vents near the top rear of the
chassis to verify that the blower is operating.

Step 7
The router automatically boots using the default image (if a flash memory card
containing a valid Cisco IOS software image is inserted in slot 0 and the software
configuration register is set to 0x0102).
As the router boots the Cisco IOS software image, a system banner similar to the
following appears:

Copyright (c) 1986-2001 by cisco Systems, Inc.
Compiled Sat 20-Jan-01 18:34 by ghall
Note
The system banner depends on the image version of the Cisco IOS
software that the system is running. Your system banner might be
different than the examples throughout this chapter.
•
If the ROM monitor prompt (rommon>) displays, the router did not find a
valid system image or the boot sequence was interrupted, and the system
entered read-only memory (ROM) monitor mode.
In this case, you must boot a Cisco IOS software image manually by issuing
the boot command.
– For information on locating a valid Cisco IOS software image, refer to
the “Locating a Valid Cisco IOS Software Image” section on page 4-12.
– For information on using one of the various forms of the boot command,
refer to the “Booting from the Cisco IOS Software Image” section on
page 4-12.
•
Step 8
After manually booting the router, continue to Step 8.
When you start an unconfigured system for the first time, the system
automatically starts the system configuration dialog. The interactive script
prompts you through the steps to create a router configuration file defining basic
system operation parameters.
--- System Configuration Dialog --Continue with configuration dialog? [yes/no]:
The router uses the system configuration file to activate network connections to
the RP so the router can be administered from a remote location, or to activate the
line card network interfaces. After the initial configuration, the RP and line cards
can communicate with external networks.

Manually Booting the System
You do not need to configure the network interfaces immediately, but you cannot
connect to a network until you configure the interfaces for operation in your
network environment. For configuration information, see the “Configuring the
Router” section on page 4-14.
Note
The interface-specific LEDs on the line cards may not power on until you
configure the line card interfaces. To verify correct operation of each line card
interface, complete the first-time setup procedure and configuration, then check
the status of the interfaces against the descriptions in the documentation for each
line card.
If the system does not complete each of the preceding steps, go to the
“Troubleshooting the Installation” chapter for troubleshooting recommendations
and procedures.
Manually Booting the System
If your router does not find a valid system image, or if you interrupt the boot
sequence, the system enters ROM monitor mode and displays the ROM monitor
prompt (rommon>). From ROM monitor mode, you have access to commands
which locate and boot a valid system image.

•
If the memory contains the desired Cisco IOS boot image, proceed to the
“Booting from the Cisco IOS Software Image” section on page 4-12.
•
If the onboard flash memory does not contain the desired Cisco IOS boot
image, proceed to the next step.
Enter the dir slotn: command, where n represents either slot 0 (0) or slot 1(1) to
find a valid image by examining the contents of the flash memory card.
The following example shows the contents of the flash memory card in slot 0:
rommon 2> dir slot0:

Configuring the Router
Note
If you did not change the configuration register setting, the next reload will revert
to the default configuration register setting (0x0102). This setting causes the
system to boot Cisco IOS software from a flash memory card inserted in slot 0 the
next time you boot the router. See the “Configuring the Software Configuration
Register” section on page 4-31 for additional information.
Configuring the Router
You can perform a basic configuration for your router by using one of the
following methods:
•
Method 1—Using the setup facility or the setup command.
During the initial startup of an unconfigured router, the system automatically
runs the setup facility, which enables you to begin configuring your router
manually. The setup facility presents a structured, interactive script that
guides you through the process.
You can also invoke the setup facility at any time to alter previously entered
configuration information by issuing the setup command at the privileged
EXEC mode prompt (Milo#).
This method is described in the “Using Setup for Configuration Changes”
section on page 4-18.
•
Method 2—Using global configuration mode through the Cisco IOS
command line user interface.
If you prefer not to use the interactive script of the setup facility to configure
the router, you can configure it manually in global configuration mode. This
method requires you to enter configuration commands on a line-by-line basis
at the console without being prompted by a configuration script. This method
is described in the “Using Global Configuration Mode” section on page 4-27.

System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Cisco IOS User Interface
You can use the method that suits your operating style and your knowledge of
network configuration requirements.
Whether you use the setup command facility or global configuration mode to
configure the router to operate in your networking environment, be sure you know
the:
•
Interfaces the router has.
•
Protocols the router is routing.
•
Network addresses for the protocols being configured.
•
Password scheme for your environment.
Cisco IOS User Interface
Cisco IOS software provides a command line interface that allows you to
configure and manage your router. If you are not familiar with the Cisco IOS
command line interface, you should read the “Using the Command Line
Interface” chapter in the Configuration Fundamentals Configuration Guide. This
section discusses the different command modes, context-sensitive help, and
editing features of the interface.
Cisco IOS User Interface Command Modes
The Cisco IOS user interface is organized into several different modes. The
available commands depend on which mode you are currently in. Entering a
question mark (?) at the system prompt displays a list of commands available for
the current command mode.
When you start a session on the router, you begin in user EXEC mode. Only a
limited subset of the commands are available in EXEC mode. In order to have
access to all of the commands, you must enter privileged EXEC mode which
normally requires a password. From privileged EXEC mode, you can enter any
EXEC command or enter global configuration mode. Most of the EXEC
commands are 1-time commands, such as show commands, that show the current
configuration status, and clear commands, that clear counters or interfaces. The
EXEC commands are not saved across reboots of the router.

OL-11496-01
4-15
Chapter 4
System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Cisco IOS User Interface
The configuration modes allow you to make changes to the running configuration
file. If you save the configuration, the commands are stored and persist across
router reboots. In order to access the various configuration modes, you must start
from global configuration mode. From global configuration mode, you can enter
interface configuration mode, subinterface configuration mode, and a variety of
protocol-specific modes.
ROM monitor mode, described earlier in this chapter, is a separate mode used
when the router cannot boot properly. If your router does not find a valid system
image when it is booting, or if its configuration file is corrupted at startup, the
system typically enters ROM monitor mode.
User EXEC Mode
After the system boots successfully and loads the Cisco IOS software, the user
EXEC mode prompt appears on the system console. The user EXEC mode prompt
consists of the router host name followed by the right angle bracket (>). The
following example shows the user EXEC mode prompt for a router with the
factory default name Router.
Router>
Note
The default host name is Router unless it was changed during initial configuration
using the setup command facility.
Privileged EXEC Mode
To enter privileged EXEC mode, enter the enable command at the user EXEC
mode prompt. If the enable secret password is set and saved in memory, the
system prompts you to enter the enable secret password. The password does not
appear on the window and is case sensitive. When the system accepts the
password, the prompt changes to the privileged EXEC mode prompt, which
consists of the router host name followed by the pound sign (#).
Note
Because many of the privileged commands set operating parameters, privileged
access should be password-protected to prevent unauthorized use.

For information about using passwords, see the “Configuring Passwords” section
on page 4-23.
Global Configuration Mode
Global configuration commands:
•
Apply to features that affect the system as a whole, rather than just one
protocol or interface.
•
Use the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
From global configuration mode, you can access a number of other command
modes.
•
Enable particular routing or bridging functions.
For information on protocol-specific global configuration commands, refer to the
appropriate configuration guide in the Cisco IOS software documentation.
Interface Configuration Mode
Use interface configuration commands to modify the operation of an interface
such as Ethernet, FDDI, or a serial port. Interface configuration commands always
follow an interface global configuration command, which defines the interface
type.
For details on interface configuration commands that affect general interface
parameters such as bandwidth and clock rate, refer to the “Interface Commands”
chapter in the Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference. For
protocol-specific commands, refer to the appropriate Cisco IOS software
command reference guide.

Subinterface Configuration Mode
Use subinterface configuration mode to configure multiple virtual interfaces
(called subinterfaces) on a single physical interface. Subinterfaces appear to be
distinct physical interfaces to the various protocols. For detailed information on
how to configure subinterfaces, refer to the appropriate module for a specific
protocol in the Cisco IOS software documentation.
ROM Monitor Mode
If the router cannot locate a valid system image, or if the boot sequence is
interrupted, the system may enter ROM monitor mode. You can then boot the
system manually or perform diagnostic tests.
You can also enter ROM monitor mode by entering the reload command from the
privileged EXEC mode prompt and then pressing the Break key during the first
60 seconds of startup.
Using Setup for Configuration Changes
Use the setup command facility to perform first-time configuration and other
basic configuration procedures on your router. This facility is based on a script
that prompts you to enter basic configuration information to start a router quickly
and uneventfully.
During the first-time startup of an unconfigured router, the system automatically
starts the setup command facility and displays an interactive dialog called the
system configuration dialog. The system configuration dialog guides you through
the configuration process by prompting you for global (system-wide) parameters
and interface (line card) parameters.

Cisco IOS User Interface
To use the setup command to change a configuration:
1.
You must toggle through each system configuration dialog prompt until you
come to the item that you intend to change.
– To accept default settings for items that you do not want to change, press
the Return key.
– To return to the privileged EXEC prompt without making changes and
toggling through each system configuration dialog prompt, press Ctrl-C.
The setup command facility also provides help text for any prompt. To access help
text, press the question mark (?) at a prompt.
2.
When you complete your changes, the setup command facility displays the
configuration command script that was created as a result of the changes you
entered during the setup session. It also prompts you to use this
configuration. There is no default for this prompt; you must answer either Yes
or No.
•
If you answer Yes, the configuration is saved to NVRAM.
•
If you answer No, the configuration is not saved and the process begins again.
The following example shows typical output of a setup session automatically
invoked during the initial startup of the router. The system banner appears, and
then the system configuration dialog begins.
Note
The output shown in this section are examples.Your configuration dialog might be
different depending on which image of the Cisco IOS software you are using and
how your router is equipped.

For example, during the configuration of a POS interface, (using the setup facility
initial router startup), the script appears as the following example as you respond
to queries:
Configuring interface POS1/0:
Is this interface in use?: yes
Configure IP on this interface?: yes
In this example, the script does not display default or current parameters in square
brackets [ ], because you entered the setup facility automatically at startup and
there is no prior configuration information.
Conversely, when you enter the setup command at the privileged EXEC mode
prompt (assuming that the POS interface was configured previously), the script
displays those settings in square brackets [ ].
Configuring interface POS1/0:
Is this interface in use?[yes]:
Configure IP on this interface?[yes]:
When a system prompt contains an existing value in square brackets, press
Return to accept the value, or type an alternate value and press Return.
Configuring Global Parameters Using the Setup Facility
When you first enter the setup facility or enter the setup command, the system
prompts you to configure global parameters for your router. Global parameters
control system-wide settings, including the following:
•
Host name for the router.
•
Passwords for the enable, enable secret, and virtual terminal security
parameters.
•
Protocols used by the router.

Configuring Host Name
The host name you configure your router with must:
•
Follow the rules for ARPANET host names.
•
Start with a letter, end with a letter or digit, and have as interior characters
only letters, digits, and hyphens.
•
Consist of 63 or fewer characters.
For more information, refer to RFC 1035, “Domain Names—Implementation and
Specifications.”
Uppercase and lowercase characters look the same to many internet software
applications, so do not expect case to be preserved. It may seem appropriate to
capitalize a name the same way you might do when writing, but names must
appear as all lowercase. For more information, see RFC 1178, “Choosing a Name
for Your Computer.”
Configuring Passwords
The commands available at the user EXEC level are a subset of those available at
the privileged EXEC level. Because many privileged EXEC commands are used
to set system parameters, you should password-protect these commands to
prevent their unauthorized use. For information on how to establish password
protection or configure privilege levels, refer to the “Configuring Passwords and
Privileges” chapter in the Security Configuration Guide.
The enable secret password functionality is available for Cisco 12000 series
Gigabit switch routers. To gain access to privileged-level commands, you must
enter the correct password. Depending on your boot ROM level, you can use
enable password while in ROM monitor mode.
For maximum security, enable secret and enable password settings should be
different. If you use the same password during the setup process, the system
accepts it but issues a warning to enter a different password.
•
An enable secret password can contain from 1 to 25 uppercase and lowercase
alphanumeric characters.
•
An enable password can contain any number of uppercase and lowercase
alphanumeric characters.

In either case, you cannot use a number as the first character. Spaces, however, are
valid password characters. For example, two words is a valid password. Leading
spaces are ignored, but trailing spaces are recognized.
Note
Make a note of all passwords you set and store that information in a secure
location for future reference.
Configuring Protocols
For complete information on protocol configuration for your router, refer to the
appropriate software configuration publications, which are listed in the “The
Cisco IOS software running your router contains extensive features and
functionality. For information on Cisco IOS software and general installation and
maintenance information for your router, use the following resources:” section on
page 4-63.
Configuring Network Interfaces
This section summarizes information about configuring network interfaces for the
RP and the installed line cards using the setup facility or setup command. After
the RP and line cards are configured, they can communicate with external
networks.
To configure the interface parameters for the RP and installed line cards, you must
have the following information available:
•
Interface network addresses
•
Subnet mask values
•
Protocols to be configured
You may need to consult your network administrator to obtain this information.
For additional interface configuration information for the RP and line cards
installed in your router, refer to the documentation for each card.
Configuring RP Ethernet Interfaces
The RJ-45 and MII receptacles on the GRP and PRP are IEEE 802.3u-compliant
interfaces that provide connectivity to Ethernet networks. You can use one
interface or the other, but not both at the same time.

Configuring the Software Configuration Register
The software configuration register is a 16-bit register in NVRAM that defines
specific system parameters. You can set or change the contents of this register to
accomplish the following tasks:
•
Define the boot sources for the default Cisco IOS software, assigning them in
the following order of precedence:
– Flash memory card inserted in PCMCIA slot 0
– TFTP server on the network
– Flash memory SIMM (NVRAM) on the route processor
– Boot image stored within the operating environment
•
Define a default boot filename.
•
Enable or disable the Break function.
•
Control broadcast addresses.
•
Set the console terminal baud rate.
•
Recover a lost password.
•
Force an automatic boot using a boot image.

•
Read boot system commands from the configuration file stored in NVRAM.
Table 4-4 defines software configuration register bits.
Caution
To avoid confusion and possibly halting the system, remember that valid software
configuration register values may be combinations of settings, rather than the
individual settings listed in Table 4-4. For example, the factory default value for
the software configuration register (0x0102) is actually a combination of several
settings (binary bit 8 = 0x0100 and binary bits 00 through 03 = 0x0002).

software image required to run the router. The content of the boot field is specified
as a binary number.
Table 4-5
Note
Boot Field—Software Configuration Register
Boot Field
Meaning at Power-On
00
The system remains at the ROM monitor prompt (rommon>),
awaiting a user command to boot the system manually.
01
The system automatically boots the first system image found in
the onboard flash memory SIMM on the RP.
02 to 0F
The system boots automatically from a default Cisco IOS
software image stored on a TFTP server in the network. This boot
field setting requires that the Ethernet port on the RP is
configured and operational. This setting also enables boot system
commands that override the default filename.
A Cisco 12010, Cisco 12410, or Cisco 12810 router is shipped with a boot image
in the boot flash, and a Cisco IOS image on a flash memory card.
Setting Software Configuration Settings
The four low-order bits of the software configuration register (bits 3, 2, 1, and 0)
form a boot field that defines the source of a Cisco IOS software image for booting
the router.
You can set or change the contents of the boot field by entering the
config-register command at the global configuration mode prompt
[Milo(config)#].
Note
The factory default configuration register setting for an RP is 0x0102.

Chapter 4
System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Configuring the Software Configuration Register
Depending on the boot field setting, the system ignores boot instructions in the
system configuration file and performs one of the following operations:
•
When the boot field is set to 0—You must boot the operating system manually
by entering the boot command at the ROM monitor prompt (rommon>). You
can enter the boot command with or without arguments.
If you enter the boot command:
– Without an argument (that is, without specifying a file or any other boot
instructions), the system automatically boots using the default image in
the flash memory SIMM on the RP.
– With arguments (that is, by instructing the system to boot from a specific
source), you have the following options:
•
You can instruct the system to boot from a:
– Specific flash SIMM image (by entering the boot bootflash:filename
command)
– Specific image stored on a PCMCIA flash memory card (by entering the
boot slot #: imagename command).
– Network TFTP server either by sending broadcast TFTP requests (by
entering a boot filename command), or by sending a direct request to a
specific network TFTP server (by entering a boot filename ip-address
command).
•
When the boot field is set to 1—The system automatically boots using the
first image found in the onboard flash SIMM on the RP.
•
When the boot field is set to a bit pattern other than 0 or 1—The router uses
the software configuration register settings to compute the filename of a
default system image stored on a network TFTP server. It then uses that
system image to boot the router. However, if the configuration file contains
boot instructions, the system uses those instructions to boot the system rather
than using the filename it computed from the software configuration register
settings.
To form this filename, the system starts with cisco and links the octal
equivalent of the boot field value and the processor type in the following
format:
cisco<bootfieldvalue>-<processorname>

System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Configuring the Software Configuration Register
For example, the filename formation process may yield a range of typical
filenames like the following:
cisco2-grp
.
.
.
cisco17-grp
The system uses one of the filenames in this range to boot a default system image
stored on a network TFTP server.
Note
If a bootable Cisco IOS software image exists in a flash memory card inserted in
slot 0 or slot 1, the software configuration register boot field setting is overridden.
The system boots from the image in the flash memory card, rather than from a
network TFTP image (that is, from a computed filename in the range from
cisco2-grp through cisco17-grp on the GRP and cisco2-prp through cisco17-prp
on the PRP).

Low-Order Bits in the Software Configuration Register
This section provides detail about of the low-order bits in the software
configuration register and how they interact during the router boot process.
As described in the “Setting Software Configuration Settings” section on
page 4-33, the boot field setting determines the source of the Cisco IOS software
image used to boot the router.
•
If you set the boot field value to 0 (0x0000), you must boot the operating
system manually by entering the boot command at the ROM monitor prompt
(rommon>).
•
If you set the boot field value to 0x2 through 0xF and a valid boot system
command is stored in the configuration file, the router boots the Cisco IOS
software image as directed by that value.
•
If no boot system command is present in the configuration file, the router
forms a default boot filename and attempts to acquire that file from a network
TFTP server.
In the following example, the software configuration register is set to boot the
router from the flash memory SIMM on the RP, and to ignore the Break function
at the next reboot of the system (see Table 4-4):
Milo# configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
Milo(config)# config-register 0x0102
Milo(config)# boot system flash filename
Ctrl-Z
Milo#
With the configuration register set to 0x0102, the system computes a default boot
filename. In forming this filename, the system starts with cisco and appends the
octal equivalent of the boot field number, a hyphen, and the processor type (grp
or prp).
Table 4-6 lists the range of possible computed default filenames for booting the
system over the network. Note, however, that a valid boot system configuration
command stored in the NVRAM configuration file overrides any computed
default filename for booting over the network.

Configuring the Software Configuration Register
High-Order Bits in the Software Configuration Register
This section describes the significance of high-order bits in the software
configuration register.
•
Bit 8 of the software configuration register controls the console Break key.
– Setting bit 8 causes the system to ignore the console Break key (factory
default).
– Clearing bit 8 causes the system to interpret a Break keystroke as a
command to halt normal system operation and force the system into
ROM monitor mode.
Pressing the Break key during the first 5 seconds of system bootup causes
a return to the ROM monitor mode regardless of the setting of the Break
enable bit in the software configuration register.
Note
•
Bit 9 is not used.
•
Bit 10 of the software configuration register controls the host portion of the
IP broadcast address.
– Setting bit 10 causes the processor to use all zeros in the host portion of
the IP broadcast address
– Clearing bit 10 causes the processor to use all ones (factory default)
Bit 10 interacts with bit 14, which controls the network and subnet portions
of the IP broadcast address.
Table 4-7 shows the combined effect of bits 10 and 14.

Bit 13 of the software configuration register determines the system response
to a bootload failure.
– Setting bit 13 causes the system to load Cisco IOS software from flash
memory after five unsuccessful attempts to load a boot file from the
network TFTP server.
– Clearing bit 13 causes the system to continue attempting to load a boot
file from the network TFTP server indefinitely (default).

System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Using RP Flash Memory Cards
Formatting a New Flash Memory Card
The flash memory card that shipped with your router contains the default
Cisco IOS software image you need to boot your router.
If you require a new flash memory card to copy images or backup configuration
files, you must first format the card.
Note
Use only Type I or Type II flash memory cards.
Use the following procedure to format a new flash memory card.
Step 1
Insert the flash memory card into slot 0 or slot 1.
Step 2
Enter the format slot0: (or format slot1:) command at the privileged EXEC
mode prompt:
Milo# format slot0:
All sectors will be erased, proceed? [confirm]
Enter volume id (up to 30 characters): MyNewCard
Formatting sector n
Format device slot0 completed
Milo#
When the console displays the “Formatting sector n” line, the format routine
begins to count backward from the number of sectors on the flash memory card.
For example, on a 20MB there are 160 sectors. When the count reaches 1, the
formatting process is complete. The new flash memory card is now formatted and
ready to use.
For command descriptions and configuration information, refer to the
Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference and the Configuration
Fundamentals Configuration Guide in the Cisco IOS documentation set.

System Startup and Basic System Configuration
Using RP Flash Memory Cards
Specifying a Cisco IOS Software Image to Boot the System
Use the procedure in this section to identify a specific Cisco IOS software image
(new.image in this example) that you want to make bootable from a flash memory
card.
The software configuration register must be set to 0x2102 to boot the image from
the flash memory card. Therefore, the config-register command must be included
in the command sequence, as shown in the following example.
Milo# configure terminal
Milo(config)# no boot system
Milo(config)# boot system flash slot0:new.image
Milo(config)# config-register 0x2102
Ctrl-Z
Milo# copy running-config startup-config
Milo# reload
When you enter the reload command, the system uses the specified file
(new.image) on the flash memory card in slot 0 to boot the system.
If one of the following software configuration register settings is specified in the
preceding example, the system would follow those instructions accordingly:
•
0x2000—If the network boot fails, the system boots a default Cisco IOS
software image from a flash memory card.
•
0x0100—The system ignores the Break function.
•
0x0101—The system boots the default image (the first image found) from the
onboard flash memory SIMM on the RP. This setting also tells the system that
it should not reset the Break disable function, nor should it check for a default
filename for booting over the network.
•
0x0002—The system looks in the flash memory SIMM on the RP for a
default Cisco IOS software image.
•
0x0102—The system disables the Break function and checks for a default
TFTP server filename. If the network boot operation fails, the system boots
from a flash memory card.

The squeeze command permanently removes deleted files from flash memory and
makes all other (undeleted) files contiguous to conserve storage space.
To permanently remove deleted files from a flash memory directory, but leave the
other files intact, enter the squeeze device-name command.
•
Where device-name can be slot0:, slot1:, or bootflash:.

In this example the character:
•
e in the last line indicates that the flash memory area is erased. This erase
operation must be accomplished before any write operation to the flash
memory area can begin.
•
b indicates that the data about to be written to the flash memory area has been
temporarily copied.
•
E indicates that the sector temporarily occupied by the data is erased.
•
S indicates that the data is written to its permanent location in flash memory.
•
Z indicates that the log is erased following the successful squeeze operation.
To prevent loss of data from a sudden power loss, the “squeezed” data is
temporarily saved to another flash memory area reserved specifically for system
use.
Note
During a squeeze operation, the system maintains a log of executed squeeze
functions, so that the system can return to the proper place and continue the
operation in the event of a power failure.

Copying Cisco IOS Software Images Between Flash Memory Cards
This procedure describes how to copy a later Cisco IOS software image from one
flash memory card to another flash memory card containing an earlier Cisco IOS
software image. In this example, the following filenames apply:
•
image.new—The new image on the flash memory card located in slot 1.
•
image.old—The old image on the flash memory card in slot 0.
•
image.boot—The bootable Cisco IOS software image stored in the onboard
flash memory SIMM. (This image is used by default to boot the system if no
other bootable image is available.)
This procedure assumes there is sufficient space on the flash memory card in
slot 0 for both images (the new Cisco IOS software image and the old image).
•
If there is not enough space for both images on the card in slot 0, use the
delete command to delete unnecessary files from the flash memory card, but
do not delete the image.old file.
•
After deleting the files, use the squeeze command to remove the deleted files
from the flash memory card in slot 0 permanently.
For additional information about the delete and squeeze commands, see the
“Flash Memory Commands” section on page 4-49).
Use the following procedure to copy a bootable Cisco IOS software image from
one flash memory card to another.

Enter the following commands to designate the file named image.new in the
memory card in slot 0 as the new default system image for boot purposes:
Milo# configure terminal
Milo(config)# no boot system
Milo(config)# boot system flash slot0:image.new
Ctrl-Z
Milo# copy running-config startup-config
Milo# reload
When the system reloads, it boots the image.new file from the memory card in
slot 0.
Copying System Configuration Files Between RP Memory and a Flash Memory
Card
If you do not have access to a TFTP server on which you can temporarily store
your system configuration file, you can copy the file from RP memory to a flash
memory card in slot 0 or slot 1. You can copy your startup configuration file (from
NVRAM) or your running configuration file (from DRAM) to the flash memory
card.
Use the procedures in the following sections to:
•
Copy the configuration file from either NVRAM or DRAM to a flash memory
card.
•
Copy a configuration file from the flash memory card to NVRAM.
Note
You cannot copy files directly into DRAM.

Use the following procedure to copy a configuration file from NVRAM to a flash
memory card.
Step 1
Enter the show bootvar command to display the current setting for the
environmental CONFIG_FILE variable.

The absence of any notation following the CONFIG_FILE variable statement as
shown in this example indicates that the environmental variable is pointing to
NVRAM.
Step 2
Enter the copy command in the following form:
copy startup-config [slot0: | slot1:] filename
Where:
•
startup-config is the source configuration file in NVRAM.
•
[slot0: | slot1:] specifies the destination of the configuration file to be copied.
•
filename is the name of the configuration file.

slot 0 or slot 1 (this example uses slot 0).
Step 1
Insert the flash memory card with the new image in slot 0.
Step 2
Enter the following commands to designate the file named image.new as the new
default system image for boot purposes:
Milo# configure terminal
Milo(config)# no boot system
Milo(config)# boot system flash slot0:image.new

Recovering from Locked Blocks in Flash Memory Cards
When power is lost or the card is removed from its slot during a write or erase
operation, a locked block in flash memory cards occurs.
When a block of flash memory is locked, you cannot write to it or erase it. The
only way to recover from locked blocks is to reformat the flash memory card using
the format command (see the “Formatting a New Flash Memory Card” section on
page 4-47).
Caution
Formatting a flash memory card erases all existing data on the card.
