Pushing FPD software to nodes using LMS

Answered Question
Jan 7th, 2009

I am trying to deploy FPD software to the sup-bootflash: on a number of 7600s. I have the software on one node as a tftp-server, and am trying the following netconfig job in enable mode

copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:

The job fails with the following error:

Command(s) failed on the device Insufficient no. of interactive responses(or timeout) for command: copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:. TFTP: Tftp is supported only for config mode commands. Insufficient no. of interactive responses(or timeout) for command: copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:.

I assume it's because the node is probably prompting something similar to Destination filename [c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg]?

and expecting a <CR>..

Is there a way to send one in a netconfig job? Is there a better way to distribute FBD software to the 7600s?

I have this problem too.

You can use interactive commands in Netconfig. Just add a "" anywhere a response is expected. For example:

copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:

If additional responses are required, specify them after the . For example:

copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:172.25.255.7c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkgsup-bootdisk:

I added the at the end, but still get the same error.

Command(s) failed on the device Insufficient no. of interactive responses(or timeout) for command: copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:. TFTP: Tftp is supported only for config mode commands. Insufficient no. of interactive responses(or timeout) for command: copy tftp://172.25.255.7/c7600-fpd-pkg.122-33.SRC2.pkg sup-bootdisk:.

I thought it might be a time out issue, so I set the timeout to 600 seconds (the transfer takes about 180 seconds).

Does this come into play?

TFTP: Tftp is supported only for config mode commands.

I am doing the job from enable mode, as I would in person.

That's fine. Exactly what does your template look like now, and when done manually, what prompts do you see?

When recreating the sequence manually, I found a second (Do you want to overwrite) prompt as I had manually done the transfer.

All is working. Thanks for the help!
