I have (2) 2960 switches. One is newer then the other and I wanted to update the other switch with the latest software so that I have the same software on the 2960's.
On SWA the IOS is C2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin
On SWB the IOS is C2960-lanbase-mz.122-35.SE5.bin
The dir that they are in are C2960-lanbase-mz.122-35.SE5 and C2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2. I tar the SWB IOS and have it on the tftp server and even xtracted it to flash on SWA. This way I have all the files inside the folder with it.
The problem is when I run the archive download-sw flash: or from tftp I get an error
%Error opening flash:update/info (No such file or directory)
Error: Image is not a valid IOS image archive.
Can I not replace the IOS for some reason?
