FWSM Upgrade from 3.x to 4.0.7

I am attempting to run an upgrade to a pair of FWSMs in active/standby from their 3.x version to a new major release of 4.0.7, which are in multiple context mode.

When following the upgrade release notes and the managing software section of the FWCG guide it simply states to copy the FWSM image to both systems using the copy ftp (or tftp) flash.

When I execute this command from the admin context the image tries to copy but I get a error copying no such device or on occassion no such directory.

Am I missing some fundamental thing here but it seems the admin is not able to access the files or I have not set the file system up from defaults.

When I run a dir all-filesystem in the system I get the default entries.

How can I please get an upgrade from 3 to 4 in context mode, any help is greatly appreciated.

You need to be in the system context when you copy the images over. The system is using the admin contexts interfaces to pull the images.
