Unanswered Question

I have an aironet 1200 series AP model AIR-AP1231G-A-K9. The IOS is 12.2(13)JA4 Boot Loader 12.2(8)JA

I am trying to upgrade the IOS using c1200-k9w7-tar.122-13.JA4 using ATFTP server. I am using linux and have setup a tftp server

I know the tftp server is working fine and am using this walk through from Cisco and I cant figure out why it wont upgrade from the console.

What error messages are you getting?  What command did you use?

If you can CLI to the AP then use the archive command:

archive download-sw {/force-reload | /imageonly | /leave-old-sw | /no-set-boot | /no-version-check | /destination-system stack-member-number | /only-system-type system-type | /overwrite | /reload | /safe} source-url

I usually use archive download-sw /f /o tftp:///
