Cat6500 w/Sup-720 sup-bootdisk error
We are trying to upgrade the IOS on a 6500 Sup-720 and we are getting an error.
Loading s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI3.bin from 10.9.0.81 (via Vlan2): !
%Error writing sup-bootdisk:/s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXI3.bin (Bad service code). We can't seem to find anything about this particular error.
This means the IOS is unable to read the sup-bootdisk and its contents. May be the filesystem might have got corrupted.
Please try formating/erasing the sup-bootdisk?
- command may be something like "format sup-bootdisk" or "erase sup-bootdisk"
MAKE SURE YOU DON'T REBOOT THE SUP ENGINE AFTER FORMATING OR ERASING THE SUP-BOOTDISK, have an IOS in another disk and point your boot system command to the IOS which is on another disk, because during reboot if the SUP is not able to read an IOS from sup-bootdisk then it will go to rommon mode....
