It's definately a bug - CSCek63178


When extracting a .tar file via the command line from a tftp or ftp server

the following error may occur:

Router#archive tar /xtract ftp://X.X.X.X/XXXX.tar flash:

%Error, "ftp://X.X.X.X/XXXX.tar" is a directory.


This problem is seen when executing the command:

archive tar /xtract

With the source file coming from an ftp or tftp server will result in an

error message indicating that the source file is a directory.


There is no known workaround.

Fix is in 12.4.13e, 12.4(11)XJ, 12.4.15T
