Cannot upgrade IOS image on 64mb Compact Flash 2811

Unanswered Question
Jun 6th, 2008

I am trying to upgrade to a newer IOS ( c2800nm-adventerprisek9-sna-mz.124-19.bin). I am having no luck, and about 40% i get a time out or when i tried yesterday i received the message "not enough space".

I have tried the following

- used another 2800 (same issue)

- used other IOS's like advanced IP (same issue)

- erased flash, format flash and delete command(same issue)

- used Putty TFTP and TFTP32 (same issue)

the image loads into DRAM succesffuly if i use the "tftpdnld -r" option.

Below is the configuration and output

rommon 8 > tftpdnld

IP_ADDRESS: 1.1.1.1

IP_SUBNET_MASK: 255.255.255.0

DEFAULT_GATEWAY: 1.1.1.2

TFTP_SERVER: 1.1.1.2

TFTP_FILE: c2800nm-adventerprisek9-sna-mz.124-19.bin

TFTP_VERBOSE: Progress

TFTP_RETRY_COUNT: 40

TFTP_TIMEOUT: 7200

TFTP_CHECKSUM: Yes

TFTP_MACADDR: 00:18:73:7a:5f:78

FE_PORT: Fast Ethernet 0

FE_SPEED_MODE: 100MB/FD

Invoke this command for disaster recovery only.

WARNING: all existing data in all partitions on flash will be lost!

Try a different tftp server , some will not work correctly once the files sizes get over a certain threshold for size. TFTPD32 should work ok .
