backing up flash

i am trying to back up the IOs to a TFTp server. I can ping the TFTP server. When entering command copy flash TFTP, the address of the remote host is entered; immediately the Destination filename is followed, not the Sourcefilename.  see below.  Any sugestions would be appreciated.

RouterA#copy flash tftp

Address or name of remote host []? 172.16.30.2

Destination filename [flash]? c2500-i-l.121-3.bin

%Error opening flash:1:flash (No such file or directory)

Hi,

Just try the following to copy the flash to tftp:-

Router#sh flash

Directory of flash:/

2 -rwx 99 Feb 24 2005 11:16:03 -05:00 private-config.text
3 -rwx 8149 Feb 24 2005 11:16:03 -05:00 config.text
6 -rwx 342 Jun 10 2004 11:36:32 -04:00 system_env_vars
24 drwx 192 Jun 10 2004 11:36:23 -04:00 c2500-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA2
7 -rwx 18 Jun 10 2004 11:36:32 -04:00 env_vars

15998976 bytes total (8269312 bytes free)

c2500-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA2 is the directory that the IOS file is in

This gives you the IOS file name in the directory

Router#cd flash:/c2500-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA2
Router#sh flash

Directory of flash:/c2500-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA2/

25 drwx 2688 Jun 10 2004 11:34:50 -04:00 html
107 -rwx 4219426 Jun 10 2004 11:36:23 -04:00 c2500-i5q3l2-mz.121-20.EA2.bin
108 -rwx 252 Jun 10 2004 11:36:23 -04:00 info

15998976 bytes total (8269312 bytes free)

Next copy the IOS to the tftp server

Router#copy flash tftp

Hope to Help !!
