Before you upgrade the IOS in that switch, make sure there's enough space in that Flash. Your upgrade will fail if there's not enough space to store the new image.

You might have to delete the old image first in order to make room before upgrading it.


do a "show flash", and it will tell you how much space you've left on that flash card.


If you're using Windows XP workstation, you can have FTP server installed on your workstation and upgrade your switch the same way.


copy ftp flash

enter your workstation ip

enter the file_name

confirm destination file_name

Last night, i was doing the upgrade from home (through vpn).

I tried everything and was not able to transfert the file (ios) from the tftp to the remote flash.

I finally gave up.

I went in the office in the morning; just repeat the same thing, it worked like a charm.

I guess it was a connection/speed/bandwith issue.


Thanks a lot for the help.
