    We just upgrade the IOS image on our 4510R switch and noticed that the
    standby module is diabled and has no IOS image loaded on, is there a
    way to enable this module from priv # mode and copy the image from the
    active supervisor module? when we attempt to copy the image copy
    bootflash:ios_image standbybootflash:ios_image the message returns the
    module is not accessible.

    Thanks In Advance

    "Recover a Cisco IOS Catalyst 4500/4000 Series Switch from a Corrupt
    or Missing Image or in Rommon Mode"

    Is the place to start.

    Probably worth just getting a console cable in and if you can get
    to the rommon prompt try typing


    followed of course by the return key.

    If it boots then you can worry about how to recover it later.

    If it was me I would want an outage to do it, or
    an off-line switch.

    It is I think required that the images on the two SEs should be
    (or maybe similar). Not sure what happens if they are too different.
    Maybe that is all that is wrong.

    If you have the external flash cards you can use that to get an
    image on to the module.
