This problem is resolved in Supervisor Engine 720 ROMMON software release 8.1(3). (CSCed48970)

Upgrading the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE ROMMON Using the Catalyst Operating System Commands

To upgrade the ROMMON version on a Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE running the Catalyst operating software, perform these steps:


Note Before performing this procedure, you need to download the new ROMMON image from Cisco.com. The download procedure is the same procedure that you use for downloading the supervisor engine software images.



Step 1 Check the active ROMMON information:

Console> (enable) rommon show

Region F1: INVALID
Region F2: INVALID
Currently running ROMMON from S (Gold) region

The display indicates that the active ROMMON is running in the Gold region.

Step 2 Download the new ROMMON image from the TFTP server:

Console> (enable) copy tftp flash
IP address or name of remote host []? 23.255.254.226
Name of file to copy from []? tftpboot/rommon/c6ksup3-rm2.srec.8.5.1
Flash device [bootflash]? 
Name of file to copy to [c6ksup3-rm2.srec.8.5.1]? 

25081216 bytes available on device bootflash, proceed (y/n) [n]? y
CCCCCCCCCCCC
File has been copied successfully.

Step 3 Program the new ROMMON image to the bootflash device on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE:


Note The software automatically stores the specified image to a region other than the region that accepted the last upgraded image. For example, if the last upgrade command put the image in Region F1, the current upgrade command will store the image in Region F2 and set it as the "preferred" region when the next system reset occurs. If the last upgrade command stored the image to Region F2, the current upgrade command will store the image to Region F1.

The image that is most recently stored into the Flash memory is always labeled as the "preferred" image. If you decide that you do not want this upgrade image, you can switch to the other region or the Gold region using the rommon prefer or rommon invalidate commands.


Console> (enable) rommon upgrade bootflash:c6ksup3-rm2.srec.8.5.1
CCCCCCCCCCCC
ROMMON image upgrade in progress, will take a minute
Erasing flash
Programming flash
ROMMON image upgrade complete, Supervisor must be reset.

Step 4 Check the new active ROMMON information:

Console> (enable) rommon show

Region F1: FIRST_RUN, preferred
Region F2: INVALID
Currently running ROMMON from S (Gold) region

The "Region F1" field should show "FIRST_RUN, preferred."

Step 5 Reset the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE:

Console> (enable) reset
This command will reset the system.
Do you want to continue (y/n) [n]? y

The "Region F1" field should show "APPROVED, preferred." The ROMMON stored in the F1 region is now the active ROMMON.


Upgrading the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE ROMMON Using Cisco IOS Commands

To upgrade the ROMMON version on your Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE using Cisco IOS commands, perform these steps:


Note Before performing this procedure you need to download the new ROMMON image from Cisco.com. The download procedure is the same procedure that you use for downloading the supervisor engine software images.



Step 1 Check the active ROMMON information:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp

   Region F1:APPROVED, preferred
   Region F2:INVALID
   Currently running ROMMON from F1 region 
Router# 

The display indicates that the active ROMMON is running in region1.

Step 2 Program the new ROMMON image to the flash device on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE:

Router# upgrade rom-monitor slot 5 sp file tftp://tftpboot-users/c6ksup3-rm2.srec.8.5.1

   ROMMON image upgrade in progress
   Erasing flash
   Programming flash
   Verifying new image
   ROMMON image upgrade complete
   The card must be reset for this to take effect
Router# 

Step 3 Check the new active ROMMON information:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
   Region F1:APPROVED
   Region F2:FIRST_RUN, preferred
   Currently running ROMMON from F1 region 
Router# 

Step 4 Reload the runtime image on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE:

Router# reload 
Proceed with reload? [confirm] 


Note Be sure to complete Step 5 before performing either or the following actions:

An online insertion and removal (OIR) of the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE.

A power cycling of the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE. The ROMMON upgrade might fail if you perform either of these actions before verifying that the runtime image successfully booted.


Step 5 After the system comes up, check the ROMMON information again:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
   Region F1:APPROVED
   Region F2:APPROVED, preferred
   Currently running ROMMON from F2 region 
Router# 

The "Region F2" field should show "APPROVED, preferred." The ROMMON stored in the Region F2 is now the active ROMMON.


Storing More Than One ROMMON Image

The procedures in this section are optional and should be used only if you have multiple versions of the upgraded ROMMON image stored on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE. These procedures describe how to select a particular ROMMON image for booting and how to disqualify a particular ROMMON region.

These sections show how to select a stored ROMMON image for booting:

Selecting a Stored ROMMON Image on Systems Running the Catalyst Operating System on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE

Selecting a Stored ROMMON Image on Systems Running Cisco IOS on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE

Selecting a Stored ROMMON Image on Systems Running the Catalyst Operating System on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE

There are three regions (including the Gold region) where versions of the ROMMON image can be stored. You can use the rommon prefer and rommon invalidate commands to switch between regions.

The ROMMON software upgrade feature allows you to have two upgraded ROMMON images (one in region F1, the second in region F2) in addition to the Gold ROMMON stored on the one-time programmable (OTP) EPROM section of the ROMMON. Use the rommon preference command to select which ROMMON will be the preferred ROMMON the next time that the system is booted. You can change the preference as often as you like. The changes do not take effect until you reset the system.

To select a particular ROMMON image stored on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, perform this task:


Step 1 Change the ROMMON preference.

Console> (enable) rommon prefer F2

ROMMON in region F2 now has the highest boot preference.
Supervisor must be reset for this to take effect.
Console> (enable) rommon show

Region F1: FIRST_RUN
Region F2: FIRST_RUN, preferred
Currently running ROMMON from F1 region

Console> (enable) rommon prefer F1

ROMMON in region F1 now has the highest boot preference.
Supervisor must be reset for this to take effect.
Console> (enable) rommon show

Region F1: FIRST_RUN, preferred
Region F2: FIRST_RUN
Currently running ROMMON from F1 region

Step 2 You can also disqualify a specific region of ROMMON and use the other region or go back to using the Gold ROMMON stored in the OTP EPROM section by using the rommon invalidate command.

To disqualify a specific ROMMON region, enter these commands:

Console> (enable) rommon invalidate F1
Do you want to mark F1 region INVALID [n]?y

done!
Supervisor must be reset for this to take effect.
Console> (enable) rommon invalidate F2
Do you want to mark F2 region INVALID [n]?y

done!
Supervisor must be reset for this to take effect.
Console> (enable) rommon show

Region F1: INVALID
Region F2: INVALID
Currently running ROMMON from F1 region

Console> (enable) reset
This command will reset the system.
Do you want to continue (y/n) [n]? y

The display indicates that the active ROMMON is running in the Gold region.


Selecting a Stored ROMMON Image on Systems Running Cisco IOS on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE

There are three regions (including the Gold region) where versions of the ROMMON image can be stored. You can use the upgrade rom-monitor slot preference and upgrade rom-monitor slot preference commands to switch between regions.

The ROMMON software upgrade feature allows you to have two upgraded ROMMON images (one in region F1, the second in region F2) in addition to the Gold ROMMON stored on the one-time programmable (OTP) EPROM section of the ROMMON. Use the upgrade rom-monitor slot preference command to select which ROMMON will be the preferred ROMMON the next time that the system is booted. You can change the preference as often as you like. The changes do not take effect until you reset the system.

To select a particular ROMMON image stored on the Supervisor Engine 720 or the Supervisor Engine 720-10GE, perform this task:


Step 1 Change the ROMMON preference:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
Region F1:FIRST_RUN
Region F2:FIRST_RUN, preferred
Currently running ROMMON from F2 region
Router# upgrade rom-monitor slot 5sp preference region1

You are about to mark F1 region of SP ROMMON in slot 5 as the boot preference region,
proceed[n]? y
Router#

Step 2 Reload the supervisor engine for the change to take effect:

Router# reload
Proceed with reload? [confirm]

<output truncated>

Step 3 Verify the change:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
Region F1:APPROVED, preferred
Region F2:APPROVED
Currently running ROMMON from F1 region


You can also disqualify a specific region of ROMMON and use the other region or go back to using the Gold ROMMON stored in the OTP EPROM section by using the upgrade rom-monitor slot invalidate command.

To disqualify a specific ROMMON region, perform these steps:


Step 1 Disqualify a specific ROMMON region:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
Region F1:FIRST_RUN
Region F2:FIRST_RUN, preferred
Currently running ROMMON from F2 region

Router# upgrade rom-monitor slot 5 sp invalidate region2

You are about to mark F2 region of SP ROMMON in slot 5 as an invalid region,
proceed[n]? y
Router#

Step 2 Reload the supervisor engine for the change to take effect:

Router# reload
Proceed with reload? [confirm]

<output truncated>

Step 3 Verify the change:

Router# show rom-monitor slot 5 sp
Region F1:FIRST_RUN
Region F2:INVALID
Currently running ROMMON from S (Gold) region
