Hi all,

i would like to upgrade catalyst 2950 with current IOS image c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA7.bin. But there is no command (archive download-sw) in current IOS. When I type "archive ?" i just get "tar List or extract files in a tar image" but in Configuration Guide here it says just the opposite. Any idea?

Thanks for reply.

Since your using a bin file, you can use the following command;

copy tftp:///c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA7.bin flash:

This will probably erase flash first (it will only if there is not enough room for both images), then copy the image over. Don't forget to reload to 'load' the image.

HTH and please rate.
