Hello,

What is the image (full image name) you are trying to load to the switch?

You should be using c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin. I guess you might have

downloaded c2900xl-c3h2l9s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin which is for LRE switches.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT

Nagaraja Thanthry Sun, 08/08/2010 - 08:45

To add to my earlier post, c2900xl-c3h2l9s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin is C2900XL LRE

IOS IMAGE where as you need C2900 IOS IMAGE (if you are downloading it from

Cisco Site, it is 3rd one from the top I believe).

Hope this helps.

NT

Hello,

The image you downloaded has "l9" which means it is for LRE platform. Download the image that does not have "l9" in its name.

   You should only be using this image .  c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin .    Verify  this image is in flash. Do a dir flash:  .  Did you set your boot statement once you downloaded the image ?    "boot system flash:c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin .  Then do a write mem  command and reload.

Hello,

You still have incorrect image in the switch flash. Please do the following:

-- Login into Cisco.com and download c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin image

-- On Google, search for TFTPd32 and download it onto your PC

-- Install TFTPd32 on your PC

-- Ping the 2900XL switch from your PC. Make sure that the PING is

successful

-- Ping your PC from 2900XL and make sure that it is successful as well. If

the PING is not successful, check your PC and turn off any firewall

(Windows/Antivirus Software/VPN) and try again. Now start the TFTPd32

program (double click on the shortcut on your desktop)

-- Move the image you had downloaded earlier to C:/Program Files/tftpd32

folder on your PC

-- Now, delete the old image from the 2900XL

switch#delete flash:/c2900xl-c3h2l9s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin

-- Now copy the new image to the switch:

switch#copy tftp: flash:

Address or name of remote host []?

Source filename []? c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin

Destination filename ?

Now reboot the switch. You should be able to reboot with the new image.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT

dear ..

i install this image c2900xl-c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC17.bin through Xmodem , after the install finsh and reload it , the error appear for me

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

so  now whta u say me to do

Nagaraja Thanthry Sun, 08/08/2010 - 14:37

Hello,

You are getting those because some configuration line that were entered by

the earlier software version are not compatible with the new image. This

happens when you boot up the switch first time with the new image. If you

issue a "write mem" command and reload, you should not see that error

message again.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

NT

  You might try deleting the "config.txt"  file in flash and then reload the switch and see what happens .
