Need some help with something tricky here:
We have a AIR-CT5508-12-K9 that we are upgrading to a more recent IOS. The problem is, the upgrade process is very slow (it was done remotely). The person who did the upgrade said we were about 40% complete. Right now that person is asleep and we have no idea how to see how far the download has progressed. Is there a particular command that shows us how far the download is to completing?
I know 'show sysinfo' gives me the current running IOS. I was told that the command 'debug transfer tftp enable' would tell me more but all I see is '
*emWeb: Feb 27 22:08:33.562: Still waiting! Status = 1'.
We were thinking of just getting someone onsite to console in and upgrade it from there, but we're a bit concerned if that would affect the WLC in some way. Is there a command to stop the download so that we can proceed with this plan? Would rebooting before the download finishes cause the device to crash and lose all configs?
So I guess what I want to know are the answers for the following:
1.Is there a particular command that shows us how far the download is to completing?
2.Is there a command to stop the download so that we can proceed to upload via console?
3.Would rebooting before the download finishes cause the device to crash and lose all configs?
Thanks very much for your kind replies.
You don't want to stop it... might not come back up!!!!! Save the config and see if it lets you, if not, then its still processing. You can also look at the config boot... the top one will show you the new code if completed.
