C3500XL Boot Loader (C3500-HBOOT-M) Version 12.0(5.2)XU,
MAINTENANCE INTERIM SOFTWARE
Compiled Mon 17-Jul-00 18:42 by ayounes


Any issues that I should know about... one version over the other ?

Running flash:c3500xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC8.bin in both units

Is there any way to clear the old settings and got to factory default?

Regards

D

There would be none. The job of the boot loader is to get the normal
image loaded and running. If it does that task, you are all set.

There could be tiny bugs in the way it interacts with the user that
they decide to update the boot loader, but I believe on that switch,
its not in-field flashable anyway. Whichever version it has is totally
fine, and once its handed off to IOS, it doesn't matter what it used
to be, only IOS is active then.

Thanks for the information...

The vlan.dat file was not there. However there is some 10net addresses
and some other references from it's history when I do "show tech".

I'd just like to configure it to have portfast off, and all the ports set
for full duplex fast ethernet.

At the moment some of the ports don't show up. When I first got the unit
it only showed 24 ports, last night 37, and who knows... maybe I'll
eventually get all 48. It seems to be ok, but some setting may exist that
limits what is available.

If anyone knows the answer... please let me know.

Regards

David Henzler

The vlan.dat file is used to store info in the 'vlan database'
command. This switch doesn't (yet) have it integrated into the IOS
config as in newer hardware.

All the other stuff should go away after a write erase and reboot.

Sounds like you have bad hardware? The only reason ports don't show up
is that they aren't scanned during POST, and failed out or something.

This looks pretty normal don't you think?

Yes, you have all your ports

>2 Gigabit Ethernet/IEEE 802.3 interface(s)


Looks like a normal boot with no errors during POST.
