Commands, page 33-551

SD Flash Memory Module The router features an SD card slot, which supports a single Cisco SD flash memory module (SD card) and SD High Capacity (SDHC). The SD card stores router data and software, including: •

Switch operating software



Running configurations



Network management software configuration



Network registration data



Switch firmware



Crashinfo file and core dump on sdflash



Syslog messages



Archive download of latest IOS from the tar image present on sdflash

SD Card File System

The SD card uses a DOSFS file system. The switch configuration is stored in a binary file in an invisible partition on the card.

SD Card Status

Supported SD Cards Table 33-1 lists the SD cards that can be used with the router. Table 33-1

Supported SD Flash Modules

Size 1-GB flash memory module 2-GB flash memory module 4-GB SDHC flash memory module

Accessing the SD Card The SD card and SD card LED are accessed from the switch front panel, though the switch SD card slot, shown in Figure 33-1.

Caution

Do not remove the SD card from the router; removing the SD card will cause the router to stop operating.

SD Card Status You can check the SD card status by viewing the SD Card LED.

SD Card LED The SD card LED is located directly next to the SD card slot. This section describes the LED states and descriptions. Figure 33-1

Using the SD Flash Memory Module Configuration Restrictions

Insertion: *Jan 15 06:54:54.843: SDFLASH has been inserted!

Removal: *Jan 15 06:54:43.775: SDFLAH has been removed!

Note

The sdflash should not be removed while sdflash write is in progress.

Configuration Restrictions The following restriction affect the SD Flash: •

The FPGA should be ready before the SD flash is initialized.



Sdflash does not support nvram partition.

Configuring SD Flash Card To configure SD flash card feature use the following steps. •

Transferring Running Configuration



Transferring Start-up Configuration

Transferring Running Configuration To transfer running configuration file from one system to another use the following steps: Step 1

Insert sd flash card in first system Switch# Run

Step 2

Use copy running-config command to copy running-config to the sd flash card: Switch# copy running-config

Step 3

sdflash:config.txt

When copy operation is completed, remove the sd flash card from the first system and insert sd flash card in second system. Ensure SD Flash LED is ON. Switch# Run

Step 4

Use config replace command to overwrite existing configuration. Switch(config)# config replace sdflash:config.txt To apply all necessary additions and deletions, and to replace the current running configuration with the contents of the specified configuration file, which is assumed to be a complete configuration, not a partial configuration. Enter Y if you are sure you want to proceed. ?[no]: Y Total number of passes: 1 Rollback Done

Using the SD Flash Memory Module

Configuring SD Flash Card

Transferring Start-up Configuration To transfer start-up configuration file from one system to another use the following steps: Step 1

Insert the sd flash card in first system Switch# Run

Step 2

Use copy tftp command to copy startup configuration file. Switch# copy tftp:://...sdflash: copy data from TFTP to sdflash

Step 3

When copy operation is completed, remove the sd flash card from the first system and insert sd flash card in second system. Ensure SD Flash LED is ON.

Note Step 4

Ensure the SD card is inserted and has the startup-config file on it.

Use logging file sdflash command to enable copying of syslogs to sdflash: Switch(config)# logging file sdflash:syslogname.log nomax 7

Step 5

Use boot config-file sdflash command to configure system to use configuration on SD Flash while booting. Switch(config)# boot config-file sdflash:sample_config.text

Step 6

Use the boot system sdflash:image_name command to use image from sd flash card while booting. Switch(config)# boot system sdflash:sample_image

Step 7

Use the boot config-file sdflash:startup-config command to set boot with the configuration file on sd flash card. Switch(config)# boot config-file sdflash:startup-config

Step 8

Use the logging file sdflash:syslog.log nomax 7 command to set the syslog messages to be saved onto to sd flash card Switch(config)# logging file sdflash:syslog.log nomax 7

Step 9

Use the archive download-sw /overwrite sdflash:.tar command to archive download from sd flash card Switch# archive download-sw /overwrite sdflash:.tar

Configure Core and Crash information To configure the system to dump core and crash files into sd flash card use the following steps: Step 1

Use exception flash all sdflash: command to dump core and crash info files to the sdflash card: Switch(config)# exception flash all sdflash: crashinfo file name

Step 2

Use the exception core-file command to set core dump filename: Switch(config)# exception core-file core name compressed timestamp
