last weekend one switch in our VSS pair failed. Redundancy/VSS
did work and we kept our connectivity besides a couple of hosts
that only have a single uplink and were connected to that particular
When I came to the data centre I found the failed chassis in rommon.
A simple "boot" command restored everything to working order.
Now to spare me that drive in case that happens again - is it possible
to use the console port of a working Catalyst 6500 to act as a terminal
server for the other one? We have quite a lot of spare rollover cables ;-)
I found these instructions but I think I'm missing something:
ip host other 2000 220.127.116.11
Core2#telnet 18.104.22.168 2000
Trying 22.214.171.124, 2000 ...
% Connection refused by remote host
I used the real IP address of looppback0, of course.
Side note/question: any idea what could cause a Cat6500 VS-S720-10G
to fail, reset (I can understand *that*) and then not boot into IOS and stay
Standby BOOT variable =
Standby Configuration register is 0x2102
