For Ciscoworks LMS 2.6 (Windows), should the TFTP boot directory be empty?


C:\Program Files\CSCOpx\tftpboot


Looking through the directory, I noted alot of old configuration files in there.

Typically, the directory should be empty unless software or config jobs are running, or someone is using the directory for other purposes. Occasionally, crashed jobs can leave leftover files in tftpboot. Some of these may even be non-zero length. If you know there are no active jobs running, files named DATE-DEVICE.cfg (e.g. 20060205142402101-14.32.12.25.cfg) can be safely deleted.
