RTR1#copy tftp flash:

Address or name of remote host []? 10.2.X.X

Source filename []? cbs30x0-ipbase-mz.122-50.SE1.bin

Destination filename [cbs30x0-ipbase-mz.122-50.SE1.bin]?

Accessing tftp://10.2.X.X/cbs30x0-ipbase-mz.122-50.SE1.bin...

Loading cbs30x0-ipbase-mz.122-50.SE1.bin from 10.2.X.X (via Vlan5): !!!!!!!!!!!!... [timed out]

Re: IOS Upgrade

That's right. Just substitute the "file name" with the correct value. :)

Re: IOS Upgrade

Hi,

First make sure you can ping from TFTP server to the switch and the other way around.

If that works then make sure the image is in the root of the TFTP (name of the image is case sensitive, make sure is exactly the same).

Also, check that the TFTP has the send and receive options properly configured.

Hope it helps....

Re: IOS Upgrade

The file is starting then timing out.

You probably don't have enough room in flash.

Try this:

"dir flash:"

verify you have enough free space

If not enough do this:

"delete flash:'name of older ios or unused files'"

Re: IOS Upgrade

Re: IOS Upgrade

Hmmm. then I'm sorta stumped as to what would cause the file to start copying over then stop unless maybe the flash is corrupted or has a bad disk area

"fsck flash:" maybe?
