I have a major delima on my hands. I am trying to update the IOS on a bunch of 6509E's at a remote site. The problem is that I am having a great deal of difficulty getting the image loaded using tftp across the WAN. The session keeps timing out. I was able to get one switch updated but have really struggled since then. The question is, can I copy the IOS from the one I succeeded with to others at that site? That would eliminate the time out problem. If so, how do I set that up?

Place the image onto a flash card and move the card from switch to switch copying it to them one by one....Good Luck...

Set up the working 6500 with the image you want to use as a tftp server and then just copy it as you would from any other tftp server . Use the copy tftp command to copy it to the other boxes.
