flash disk in 7200 router

Post by thomasammon » Sat Jul 22, 2017 4:31 pm

Hello,

Is it possible to install a virtual flash disk in a 7200 dynamips image? This works on GNS3, and I was hoping there was a way to do it in EVE. Here's what I am trying to do:

R40(config)#do copy run myfile.cfg
Destination filename [myfile.cfg]?
%Error opening disk0:/myfile.cfg (No such device)


I didn't see any place in the GUI to specify a flash disk. Is this possible with EVE?

Tom

if you aim to copy a config to my.cfg is, best is to format bootflash; ( i found some how corrupted when i tested few years back).

reboot the device.

copy run bootflash:my.cfg

R!

My goal is to have a base configuration sitting in flash that I can "configure replace ..." to. to do this, one must have some sort of flash storage available. I can't format bootflash: because this is a 7200 and has no filesystem called "bootflash:":

R40(config)#do dir bootflash:
%Error opening bootflash:/ (Bad device info block)
R40(config)#do dir nvram:
Directory of nvram:/

126 -rw- 1054 <no date> startup-config
127 ---- 5 <no date> private-config
128 -rw- 1054 <no date> underlying-config
1 ---- 69 <no date> persistent-data
2 -rw- 0 <no date> ifIndex-table

129016 bytes total (125857 bytes free)
R40(config)#do dir disk1:
%Error opening disk1:/ (No such device)
R40(config)#do dir disk0:
%Error opening disk0:/ (No such device)

My advice, get vIOS or CSR routers instead dynamips

This is LAB, i always recommend to have tftp to back up config and replace when ever you required. if you do not tftp

You get below error, as i mentioned format bootflash: and use it - hope you get this.

R40(config)#do dir bootflash:
%Error opening bootflash:/ (Bad device info block)

or you can follow other suggestions to use other devices, if you not really want to use 7200 and explore only features.
R!
