Modifying Startup Configuration Information

Modifying Startup Configuration Information


When the system software on a device is damaged and you cannot log in to the device, you can use the BootLoad to upload the system software, configuration file, and patch file, and configure the device to start using the uploaded files. In this way, you can restore the system software and upgrade the device.


Before modifying startup configuration information, upload specified files to the flash memory using Ethernet Submenu.


  1. In the startup configuration submenu, select 2 to enter the startup configuration submenu.

           Startup Configuration Submenu                                            
        1. Display startup configuration                                            
        2. Modify startup configuration                                             
        3. Return to main menu                                                      
    Enter your choice(1-3): 2                                                       

  2. Select the startup storage device.

    Note: startup file field can not be cleared                                     
    '.'=clear field; '^D'=quit; Enter=use current configuration                     
    startup type(1: Flash)                                                          
      current: 1                                                                    
      new    :

    Currently, the device supports only the flash memory. No setting is required.

  3. Specify the system software.

    Flash startup file (can not be cleared)                                         
      new    :

    Enter the name of the specified system software and press Enter. If the current system software is available and does not require reset, directly press Enter.

    • When new system software is configured, the system checks the system software integrity. If the digital signature of the system software is invalid, the configuration fails. Therefore, ensure the system software validity.

    • The specified system software must be available and stored in the flash memory; otherwise, the device fails to start. If the startup based on the specified system software fails for three consecutive times, the device starts using the system software in the last successful startup.

    • If the system software to be specified is V200R008 or an earlier version, you must restore the default BootLoad password first according to Restoring the BootLoad Password and then specify the system software. Otherwise, the BootLoad password may not be used or a fault occurs on the switch. If the BootLoad password cannot be used after the downgrade, run the reset boot password command to restore the default BootLoad password again.

  4. Specify the configuration file.

    saved-configuration file                                                        
      new    :

    Enter the name of the specified configuration file and press Enter. If the service configuration does not require reset, directly press Enter. By default, the device uses the configuration file


    The specified configuration file must be available and stored in the flash memory; otherwise, the device starts using the factory settings.

  5. Specify the patch file.

    patch package                                                                   
      current: s5720hi-sph005.pat                                         
      new    : 

    Enter the name of the patch file and press Enter to return to the startup configuration submenu. Press Enter if you do not need to upgrade the patch file. The submenu for modifying the flash description is displayed. By default, no patch file is specified.
