Question

If the switch is unable to load the config from the flash, will the switch begin acting like a hub or will it be considered unusable until the config is loaded??

Thanks
And in conclusion your point was.....???

Don't get so upset...it's just ones and zeros.

    It can't act like a hub because the ports aren't electrically connected. Do some research on config-register to see what steps it does when it can't load from flash depending on how you have it set.

    hmm.. does it have a bootable image on it also does it have the image file in the boot statement?

    please post bootup output

    and do a dir flash:

    mmmm...config is located on the nvram and IOS or CATOS on FLash

    so, if the switch can't get the config from the nvram simply it works as a multiport bridge. On the other hand, if it can't load the IMAGE from the FLASH you will be prompted to the rommon that has i lil' IOS.
