Hi,

We currently have a Catalyst 4000 series switch. When the switch is power cycled we have to type in the word 'boot' for it to load the configuration and become functional.

Can anybody please explain to me how we can have the switch load without having to type in this commnad?

Thanks,

1)do "show version"
if you having the line different than
 
Configuration register is 0x2142

enter the command:
config-register 0x2102

2) pecify the system image that the router loads at startup:
boot system flash [device:][filename]
write mem <- store the config into startup-config

When you're in privileged mode, is the prompt

Switch# = IOS

or

Switch(enable)# =CatOS
