Does anybody know what "Running default software" mean? I have other same model routers that has a differnet reading, such as " System image file is "flash:c1600-sy-mz.112-20.P.bin", booted via flash". What is the difference?


RouterA> uptime is 24 weeks, 5 days, 19 hours, 26 minutes
System returned to ROM by power-on
System restarted at 09:12:15 CDT Fri Apr 30 2004
Running default software

There are two models of 1600 - plain 1600 and 1600-R The "R" means Run from RAM, where the older models ran from flash

I cannot replicate this message. What ROM version do you sho on this 1600?

C1601-R#sho ver              

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.0(3)T, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)  <=====
ROM: 1600 Software (C1600-RBOOT-R), Version 12.0(3)T,  RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1) <======

C1601-R uptime is 0 minutes
System restarted by power-on
System image file is "flash:c1600-y-mz.120-18.bin"

However, I did find in this document: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps1826/products_command_reference_chapter09186a00800d9c3d.html
Show Version Field Descriptions:  Running default software :

"If the software was booted over the network, the Internet address of the boot host is shown. If the software was loaded from onboard ROM, this line reads "running default software." In addition, the names and sources of the host and network configuration files are shown."

This problem turns out to be a bug in the IOS.

This is not affecting the router's job or routing.

Thanks for your help.
