  • Cisco 857w Steps to follow after Flash erase

    I would like to setup the default config in my flash but I don't know how to, because before this situation I have CCP express installed to my router helping me to do a quick and easy installation but now I don't have this soft in my flash and also can't have ethernet access to my router to restore it.

    Before erasing a flash I have all the files below in my flash, but now I have only one (c850-advsecurityk9-mz.123-8.YI2.bin)


    *************

    Directory of flash:/

    If you erased the IOS in flash and then restored via rommon and then reloaded it should bring you into system configuration dialog. Should then be able to select no and get into the router with a default config. Is this not happening?

        When you boot the router what happens? If you wiped the flashed and restored IOS via Rommon and rebooted it should bring you into a factory default config. When the router boots it should bring you into the system configuration utility which is a question/answer syntax. You can select no and should drop you into priv exec mode with a clean running config.

        If your asking how can you restore a previous config, then unless you backed it up via tftp or by a copy/paste into notepad there is no way to restore it as you erased it when you wiped the flash.

        Can you post a screenshot on what your are seeing when the router boots?

          sorry for the delay; the router is in other location

          When I start the router this message appear

          --- System Configuration Dialog ---

          Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: n


          Press RETURN to get started!

          After that you can see the attach file

          Thanks for your continuous support

              Okay that is normal behavior when the router can't find a saved config in flash. Just make a change in that default config and do a copy run start which will save the config in flash.

              If your asking to restore a previous config then unless you made a backup of it (which you should always do) before the upgrade then it is gone.

                  Just console into it via the console port and the console cable. You can use hyperterminal , putty as your client. Then you can put an ip address on it. Also you dont need the CCP installed on flash. You can install it on the windows client and run it from there. I think CCP is a free download from cisco. If not it may require a CCO login.

                      Re: Cisco 857w Steps to follow after Flash erase

                      For example:


                      int fa0/0
                      ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
                      no shut

                      ip http server
                      ip http authentication local

                      line vty 0 4
                      login local
                      privilege level 15

                      username cisco privilege 15 password cisco ( Need priv 15 for http access to the router)

                      Change your pc nic to an address on the 192.168.1.0/24 subnet. Then connect via CCP and configure away

                        When I try to setup IP address this message appear "IP addresses may not be configured on L2 links"
                        Can you please let me know where can I find the default Cisco 800 series config and how can I restore it to my flash

                          Looks like that model uses SVI's.


                          int vlan 1
                          ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
