if you are copying an image from tftp and you session times out. Does it not complete? We have a 3750 switch with 8557568 bytes free. The image is

7205024 (c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin)

When my session timesout. I log back in and the file doesn't appear to be there so I assume that when the session dies it kills my tftp progress.

Once the session is getting timed out i feel your tftp copy is getting disconnected.

I would rather suggest to recheck the available space in the flash and also the files available in the flash.

Do remove unecessary incomplete files which might be occupying space and wont lead into unavailability of space...

Once you are done with the same try to configure FTP services and try uploading the ios using FTP services instead of TFTP..

Hi ,

solarwinds tftp server is good per previous post check the size in flash before going for IOS upgradation...

If there is not enough space in flash then do " erase flash " and load the image ...

Pl check the below link ..

if possible paste sh flah and sh ver outputs..
