You lost the original filename for some reason. You can use the rename command to fix it. IOS doesn't need a correct filename to work correctly.


Note, 'upgradation' in english is 'upgrade'.

Hello Raahi,


verify from sh ver output the exact location of the current running image


Example:


sh ver


System restarted at 06:26:19 MET Fri Oct 3 2008

System image file is "flash:c2800nm-adventerprisek9-mz.124-7a.bin"


a question mark may mean a deleted file so take care if you see that the file used to boot is now missing you may need to download it again


Hope to help

Giuseppe

Giuseppe, I think the ISR filesystem don't support deleted files as "?" like the older filesystem with squeeze. My theory is that the OP managed to enter ? as a filename hitting the quoting key before question mark during the copy process.

Would be interesting to know how you manage to create the file as the versions that I have prevents use of ? in filenames.
