%error reading tftp://add_lms/rep-softxx (timeout)

Unanswered Question
Jan 5th, 2009


When I try to download soft from LMS to device, it start (!!!!!.!!!....) and after approximately 1 Mg , it stops with a timeout error.(%error reading tftp://add_lms/rep-softxx (timeout))

I use LMS 3.1 with a virtual plateform ESX.

Is there any setup in lms ?

This could be network-related (e.g. firewall), or it may be a device issue. What type of device? If you try to do a manual copy of the software image to the device, does it work, or does it timeout?

We tried with several devices 3524XL and 2950 . It fails every time at 800 Kbytes for the 2950 and 1.8 Mgbytes for the 3524 tar file

The only successful tranfert with LMS is a transfert with a 3524-bin file (1,8 Mg)

When we try to upgrade manualy devices with another TFTP serveur (3Cdeamon)installed on the lms itself it fails also nearly at the same place ( 800 K for the 2950)


Note: Lms is isntalled on a ESX machines .

This definitely sounds like a network problem. To rule out firewalls, try moving a device to the same subnet as the ESX server, and see if the upgrade works then.
