Hi,

Problem in upgrading IOS on the Switch. The Stitch is currently has c2950-c3h2s-mz.120-5.3.WC.1.bin code on it but when i try to upgrade the code i copied c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA13.bin to the flash and issued the command

Switch# boot system flash:c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA13.bin and restarted the switch

But the switch is loading the old code not the new code


Tks

Hello Logesh,


If you entered that command indeed as indicated above, then you have entered it in the privileged mode where it is not valid. It should be entered in the global configuration mode, i.e.:


Switch# configure terminal

Switch(config)# boot system flash:c2950-i6k2l2q4-mz.121-22.EA13.bin

Switch(config)# exit

Switch# copy run start

Switch# reload


Best regards,

Peter
