RME 4.0.6 cannot upgrade an Image that is greater than 32MB

Unanswered Question
Feb 16th, 2009

I am trying to push an image upgrade out to a 2800:

2800 Software (C2800NM-SPSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.3(14)T4, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

We are upgrading from flash:c2800nm-spservicesk9-mz.123-14.T4.bin to:


We do not have RCP, SCP, or HTTP in use and the only only other protocol available is TFTP. With an upper limit of 32MB for any TFTP file, how can we possibly push this and any other image out to a device?

I have this problem too.

Our TFTP daemons do not have the 32 MB limit. They support the newer RFCs which allow for larger file transfers. We configure LMS to use our TFTP daemons now on both Windows and Solaris. Your job should just work.

We thought we made the switch back to the CW tftp but hadn't. Editing this post to reflect better info.... sorry.

So does this mean that image deployment is now working for you after switching to the LMS TFTP server?
