I'm wondering if there is anyone willing to share any experiences they have had with Cisco 7200 series equipment (specifically relating to the G2 NPE) and any 12.4 based IOS.
It didn't seem quite right to us either.
Cisco has recommended that we move to a 12.2 SB IOS for the G2, however I'm wondering what other people are doing.
We are running 12.2(31)SB5 and we have been very pleased. We are using MPLS, BGP, ISIS, CEF, SNMP, and TACACS+ with I/O-2FE, 3 GE fiber SFPs, PA-MC-T3s, and PA-FEs.
On another note, it seems as though it is not possible to recover a G2 from a rommon state with invalid bootloader images or corrupt bootflash:. There are no commands in the rommon to allow Xmodem uploads via the console, nor any networking functions. I also noticed that it seems to be impossible to load the bootloader from a CF card - even though you can list the contents of the CF card.
That sounds disturbing. I can't imagine they would not have a way to recover using TFTP or flash.
