tftp boot problems

  1. Hi!

    Since the IOS with needed features does not fit into our flash, we
    decided to boot the box via tftp; we have done before with a lot of
    7507's without problem. This is an old 1720.
    We try to boot 12.2(15)T17.
    This is what happens:
    Machine comes up and loads bootstrap:
    System Bootstrap, Version 12.0(3)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)
    Copyright (c) 1999 by cisco Systems, Inc.
    C1700 platform with 49152 Kbytes of main memory

    program load complete, entry point: 0x80008000, size: 0x580438
    Self decompressing the image : ######[...]####[OK]

    next message:
    Loading c1700-k9o3sy7-mz.122-15.T17.bin from 192.168.10.195 (via
    FastEthernet0)
    !!!![...]!!!! [OK - 9204876 bytes]
    program load complete, entry point: 0x80008000, size: 0x8c7398
    Self decompressing the image : ####[...}###[OK]

    But then, without any log message, it once again loads the bootstrap
    image and the image from flash, which we dont want.

    The relevant part of the config:
    hostname salsa
    !
    boot system tftp c1700-k9o3sy7-mz.122-15.T17.bin 192.168.10.195
    logging buffered 4096 debugging

    No other 'boot' options or whatever.

    What is our mistake?

    Thanks,
    Christian
