Resolved Caveats in FlexWAN and OSM ROMMON Software Release 12.1(5r)E

The FlexWAN fails to come online. This problem is resolved in FlexWAN and OSM ROMMON software release 12.1(5r)E. (CSCdy50995)

Upgrading the ROMMON


Note Before performing this procedure, you must download the new ROMMON image from Cisco.com. The download procedure is the same as downloading Catalyst software images.


To upgrade the ROMMON version on your FlexWAN or OSM, perform these steps (in this example, the module with the FlexWAN is in slot 4):


Step 1 Check the active ROMMON information:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 4 
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software
IOS (tm) MSFC2 Software (C6MSFC2-JSV-M), Version 12.1(12c)E2, EARLY DEPLOYMENT RELEASE
SOFTWARE (fc1)

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.1(1r)E, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
Router# 

Step 2 Program the new ROMMON to the Flash device on the FlexWAN in slot 4:

Router# upgrade rom-monitor slot 4 file bootflash:CWAN_RM.121-5r.E
Copying bootflash:CWAN_RM.121-5r.E onto bootflash of slot#4 CCCCCCCCC

Step 3 Check the new active ROMMON information:

CWTLC-Slot4# test cwlc upgrade rommon bootflash:CWAN_RM.121-5r.E

Step 4 Reload the FlexWAN for the change to take effect:

Router(config)# no power enable module 4
Router(config)# power enable module 4
Router(config)# end
Router#
