copy IOS from one switch to another

Unanswered Question
Jan 23rd, 2007

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?

I have this problem too.

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

You could copy the IOS image to a server and use xmodem from a hyperterminal session over a console session.

This can be quite slow though!

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.
