Garbage in 2620xm router rommon and error messages

    I have a 2620xm router that has some lingering config left in rommon that
    looks like it was trying to boot from tftp. I can use an unset to get rid
    of the tftp ip info but I have garbage in the environment variables that I
    cannot delete ( see below) I also am getting these messages popup on my
    console that are a bit irritating.

    out of room in table, cannot set "RET_2_RCALTS"

    out of room in table, cannot set "RANDOM_NUM"



    Is there anyway I can re initialize the rommon and blow out this garbage?

    Have you tried clearing the offending variables?

    e.g.
    "set jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys="

    Or maybe "reset jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys"

    I forget the exact syntax but you can surely find it
    on cisco.com.

    Looks like it is

    "unset jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys"

    Obviously do not type the quotes.

    Start at the top and work down until all the
    unwanted variables are gone.

    Yes I tried to unset, I was told by the person I bought the router from on
    ebay that the bootprom is damaged cause I inserted an unrecognized fxo card
    into the nm-hdv slot.

    Its highly unlikely that is the cause, unrecognized cards in IOS are
    just ignored for every version of IOS I've ever worked with. I have
    never seen this behavior with unrecognized cards, and I usually got to
    test out newer cards, usually with whatever old hardware I had sitting
    around first, so I frequently had to upgrade old IOS.

    More likely (in my experience) is that this router was sitting in
    ROMMON mode for whatever reason, and serial line noise came along and
    blasted tons of chars in, and some of them happened to stick as
    variables (most likely with control characters and other unprintables
    in their names), because random enough data eventually will produce a
    variable looking enough thing and an equals sign somewhere in a string.

    I'd state that this was pre-existing for you having it if you just
    bought it.

    As I posted, there's not really any way to clear it. At least its
    mostly just cosmetic, there's not going to be anything set there that
    will cause things to fail. If things are failing, its for a different reason.

    I am being sent another bootrom. I never had to replace one before, and
    quite frankly only use rommon when an IOS image needs to be xmodem'd up.

    All the cards work when I took them out and put them back in my 2650 and
    1760 router.

    I guess I am going to be replacing a boot rom.

    Well if it is some nvram or other that has become
    corrupted then a new rom won't help at all.

    What *exactly* did you type in.

    Was it

    "unset jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys" - without the quotes?

    What was the response?

    Is unset in your rommon help?

    I forget, do you have to "save" the new variables?
    Apparently so -

    "You must use the sync command to save ROMmon environment variables to
    nonvolatile RAM (NVRAM)."
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps259/products_tech_note09186a008015bf9e.shtml

    Can you successfully unset the tftp variables?

    Also worth trying
    jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys=A ! well A is better than what you have
    jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys= ! may set it to blank.

    One thing going wrong here is that it would help
    if you said what you were actually doing. Ideally post
    output recorded from your sesssion. Edited and
    anotated as required to make it clear what is going on.

    People are suggesting stuff and you are not giving
    good enough feedback to come up with the next step.

    Also post the URL of the document(s) that you are using
    to troubleshoot.

    Thanks, that mostly worked with the unset, however this is what is left, I
    cant seem to find the the right syntax for the unset as it seems that there
    are pipes, and redirects. I tried to search CCO but cant seem to turn up
    anything pertinent.

    Have you tried clearing the offending variables?

    e.g.
    "set jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys="

    Or maybe "reset jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys"

    I forget the exact syntax but you can surely find it
    on cisco.com.

    Looks like it is

    "unset jEc_*qOF?8[.Ys"

    Obviously do not type the quotes.

    Start at the top and work down until all the
    unwanted variables are gone.

    Using control-V before each unusual character might work: it "escapes"
    the next character.

    control-V is I think the escape character for config mode
    in IOS.

    You could also try putting the whole string in quotes,
    try single and double.

    Unix uses the backslash as the escape character.

    for xyz|abc

    try xyz\|abc
    or xyz^V|abc where ^V is press and hold ctrl
    press and release the V key
    release ctrl key
    or "xyz|abc"
    or 'xyz|abc'

    Since the prompt is >, I doubt it is a special character.
    Easy to test?

    In unix $ is used to indicate variables in commands.
    i.e. - roughly -- I forget the details exactly now.
    set abc fred
    echo $abc
    is how the $ might be used.

    Is the box working now that some of the garbage is gone?

    The first one could be

    unset 2Y^V/tge^V,^V/r^V-KO^V|A8^V[^V~^V;n85^V+^V!

    Same with the third one. The second one has two = signs, the first of
    which might mark the end of the variable name, or be embedded in it,
    so you'd have to try both ways.

    I do appreciate the help and assistance. Thank you.

    Yes, the 2620xm always worked just I got the "out of room in table" and
    other errors scrolling up on the console constantly that is a bit irritating
    while working with the router. I was able to remove most of that and just
    left with these garbage variables in the buffer.

    As for ctrl V, when I do that it just seems to escape on the line I am
    typing and CR to another prompt without doing anything.

    I could live with the router like this, but if I put this back on Ebay for
    sale then someone is going to come back to me about garbage in the rommon.
    The person I bought it from basically blew me off and not real helpful. I
    was able to get some of this sorted out with help from here and my own trial
    and error. If I can't resolve this I will probable just scrap the router
    when I am done with it.

    As for this line
    2Y/tge,/r-KO|A8[~;n85+!=0c/f$}o.PL#1V~~FDcV^qg1[C%|^SlA[B6`:lW]28}k<G3yRH*VE}+bhY?
    cN?d}6>>8su9m/zDs$j)XZEy3.m~WbuI

    I tried top put some quotes around some of the string but says it is not
    found. Up to which part in the string is considered the whole variable is
    what I can't figure out. I tried doing character by character but for the
    most part get not found or redirect not support at this level.

    If I can figure out how to manipulate the characters and use the right
    syntax in the string it should probably go away.

    try single and double.

    Unix uses the backslash as the escape character.

    for xyz|abc

    try xyz\|abc
    or xyz^V|abc where ^V is press and hold ctrl
    press and release the V key
    release ctrl key
    or "xyz|abc"
    or 'xyz|abc'

    Since the prompt is >, I doubt it is a special character.
    Easy to test?

    In unix $ is used to indicate variables in commands.
    i.e. - roughly -- I forget the details exactly now.
    set abc fred
    echo $abc
    is how the $ might be used.

    Is the box working now that some of the garbage is gone?

    Thank you I will try this later when I can get some quality playtime in the
    lab. I was doing an actual Ctrl. Sorry I am not much of a Linux/Application
    type I work mostly with Windows and have little Unix or scripting type
    abilities.

    I will be sure to let you know what happens.

    I deeply appreciate the help. Of all the lab routers and switches I got
    from Ebay this was really the only problem child and seller I came across.

    Thank you.

    Yes, that's what I meant: in my example ^V means control-V. I only
    suggest this as I know it is recognised in IOS, so I assume it would
    work in rommon too but it might not ...

    I have had no luck it clearing out the remaining garbage, can't find the
    right syntax. I tried anything and everything and just does not recognize
    the string with the the unset command.

    Looks to me as if there are undocumented special characters.

    If it is working and you don't have smartnet I would suggest
    giving in.

    Perhaps a special appeal to Aaron Leonard might work?
