upgrade 2950T-24

Unanswered Question
Aug 18th, 2009

I have a 2950T-24 switch with 12.1.22.EA1 software and 8 MB of flash. I want to upgrade this switch with a new tar file. Following the upgrade guide, I should use the command "archive download-sw" The thing is, this command is not supported on my switch. I tried to delete my image file and then upload the tar file to my flash but still there was not enough space on my flash; I got the following error:

%Error copying flash:/c2950-i6q4l2-tar.121-22.EA13.tar (No space left on device)

How can i upgrade my switch and overwrite the current files and directories?

I have this problem too.

Thank you very much. However I did like you told me and after i downloaded the tar image file and used the command "archive tar /xtract flash:c2950-i6q4l2-tar.121-22.EA13.tar flash:" i got the following error message.

"%Error writing flash:/c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-22.EA13.bin (Not enough space on device)"

My flash shows a total of 7741440 bytes and cco tells me that 8Mbyte is needed. So this is almost enough for this image. Could this be the problem?

No I did not because my cutomer wants to start using the http server in the newer version.

Thanks anyway

Delete the current file or directory and any html files. check filename with a dir flash: If using a .bin file if you just get rid of the html files will allow you to have 2 images in flash.

"delete flash:

If a directory

delete /force /recursive flash:

html files

delete flash:*.html
