Hi,

when performing a SWIM upgrade job, is there a way to select the image-only option?  lms 3.2 fully patched.

I have this problem too.

I don't follow.  Are you asking to push the image only without a reload?

I'm trying to prevent http-management (and associated http files) from getting installed.  The IOS upgrade process invokes the 'archive download-sw' command to install the new code.  One of the options for 'archive download-sw' is /imageonly.  We use this option frequently with home-grown scripts and it works quite well.  We do not use web management and really don't want the extra files installed.

Here is the official definition of the imageonly option:

"Download only the software image but not the HTML files associated with the embedded device manager. The HTML files for the existing version are deleted only if the existing version is being overwritten or removed."

Ah, you are talking about switches which support tar file upgrades.  No, the /imageonly option is not used by RME, and cannot be configured.  The Cat3750 switches can only be upgraded with a tar image; however, other switches can be upgraded with a bin image (i.e. you can add a bin image to the repository), then deploy those to your switches.
