Hi again!

well finally installed  an IOS on my brand-old 3620.

The problem is that everytime i reboot it looses by the way the startup config, even if i do copy run start!!!

Will follow sh run, sh ver, hostname R3620, copy run start, reload.

Router#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.

Sorry for long write, but i knew you would ask me!

What do you guys think i can do to fix it?
what seems strange to me is in show ver:

DRAM configuration is 32 bits wide with parity disabled.
29K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.
24576K bytes of processor board System flash (Read/Write)

Configuration register is 0x3962


why 29 k bytes of nvram? i was used to 32, 29 seem to me like corrupted sectors... where actually is located nvram? in flash or eprom?

allso flash is supposed to be 32MB, or this is just the free left? (suppose so since IOS immage is 8,something MB)

why config register is 0x3962? i knew it should be like ox2102 or 0x102 at the least... does any one have a lik to what does these number mean?

Any idea welcome!

Thanks in advance,

Paolo

resolved,
was ter register configuration, enaught to type
Router(config)#config-register 0x2102
Router(config)#hostname R3600
R3600(config)#^Z
R3600#
00:21:35: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from console by console
R3600#copy run start
Destination filename [startup-config]?

i repropose the last part of question.

why 29 k bytes of nvram? i was used to 32, 29 seem to me like corrupted sectors... where actually is located nvram? in flash or eprom?

allso flash is supposed to be 32MB, or this is just the free left? (suppose so since IOS immage is 8,something MB)

why config register is 0x3962? i knew it should be like ox2102 or 0x102 at the least... does any one have a lik to what does these number mean?

still interested in knowing about this!!

Any idea welcome!

Thanks in advance,

To have an idea of what the conf-reg does for look below.
http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps133/products_tech_note09186a008022493f.shtml
0x3922
 •Ignores break

•Boots into ROM if initial boot fails

•115200 console baud rate
then looks like you need to add 40 to get to your register value. to add 40, bit 6 needs to be set...
 06
 0x0040
 •Ignore NVRAM contents
 
The reason you have 29k of flash is this is all should need for your startup-confg file.
It is a seperate chip just for storing the config.
I dont know if anything is kept back for vlans or if thats in the same space...

>why 29 k bytes of nvram? i was used to 32, 29 seem to me like corrupted sectors... where actually is located nvram? in flash or eprom?

How much NVRAM is installed is determined by Cisco. I don't recall what is Normally installed. But on a 3660 there would be more. A 7200 would have even more.

IIRC, the 3600's use a Dallas Semiconductor CMOS memory with integrated battery.

>allso flash is supposed to be 32MB, or this is just the free left?

That's total flash installed.

>why config register is 0x3962?

Because somebody set it to that value.

And in addition to the previous explanation, it also stops a network boot after 5 attempts.
