I have 14 switches and 4 routers on a large WAN\LAN
I have backed up all the startup configs to my TFTP server without any problems. Now I want to backup the IOS of each router and switch.
It has been over ten years since I was responsible for this many routers and switches and I wish I had kept pursuing my Cisco certifications after I got my CCNA in 2000. I have done mostly IT management since but recently found myself back in the trenches as the sole IT person for this company.
Here is an example of my failed attempts:

%Error opening flash:c2950-i6q412-mz.121-22.EA6.bin (No such file or directory)
So whenever I try to copy the IOS file to my TFTP server it always tells me that there is no such directory or file!
I've tried it on all the bin files that look like the IOS image from the show flash command but still can't get it to work.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Once I have these bad boys backed up I will feel better!
I am definitely going to get recertified and work towards CCNP again as I have to work extensively with these things on a daily basis.
