Operations in Boot Mode

To access Boot mode:

  1. Reload the system from Privileged Exec mode:
    host1#reload WARNING: Execution of this command will cause the system to reboot.Proceed with reload? [confirm]Reload operation commencing, please wait...7
  2. Press the mb key sequence (case-insensitive) during the countdown that is displayed immediately after the BPOST tests are bypassed. This puts the CLI in Boot mode.

    If you do not press the mb key sequence before the countdown timer expires, the reloading process continues and returns the CLI to the normal User Exec mode.
