I have inherited some AP 1100 and would like to update the software. I have downloaded the latest available from the Cisco website but can't seem to get the unit to take the software. I initial tried the system software -> software upgrade, but that isn't updating the unit. I'm pretty unfamiliar with tftp, but from reading the group have found the one recommended by Cisco and installed it.
My system software is currently at 12.3(2)JA2 and I would like to take it to 12.3.8-JED.
Am I missing something on why it won't take the upgrade via the GUI? If not, can someone explain a bit of installing the .tar file via the CLI.
Thanks for any help that you may be able to provide.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for checking this out. I actually was able to connect to the system via telnet and I attempted to do the upgrade via the CLI. I used the following command:
archive download-sw /overwrite tftp:\\10.0.0.28\c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JED.tar
It attempts to run, but then gives me the error: not enough free space in "flash:/"
Clean up and try again.
How does one clean up the device.
Again thanks for any help that you can provide.
Can you post the output of the "dir" command please? I want to make sure that there's enough flash space before you do anything else. How big is the new IOS you are trying to upload?
The new file 4.5 megs
here is the dir listing
3 drwx 320 Jan 1 1970 00:05:48 +00:00 c1100-k9w7-mx.123-2.JA2
143 -rwx 1849 Mar 1 2002 00:04:46 +00:00 config.txt

149 -rwx 3543040 Mar 1 2002 01:09:55 +00:00 -sw
1. The "dir" command will tell what is your size of your flash and how much is available. You've concatinated your output. Can you post the complete output?
2. Can you please post the complete output for the command "dir flash:c1100-k9w7-mx.123-2.JA2"?
when I run dir I get the above information. When I run show file system, I get this:
Size(b) Free(b) Type Flags Prefixes

- - opaque rw bs:

Hope that helps you out.
Here is the second part of that question

Whatever you do, do NOT reboot the AP until the process is complete. Here it is ...
1. delete /f /r flash:/c1100-k9w7-mx.123-2.JA2
2. archive tar /x tftp://10.0.0.28/c1100-k9w7-tar.123-8.JED.tar flash:
Hope this helps. Please don't forget to rate our posts. Thanks.
Followed the commands to the tee, unfortunately when I run the second command about
half way through the upload I get an error: not enough space on device
When I run a show file system, I still have 7741440 bytes used and 512 free in the flash portion and
I have 7741440 bytes used and 512 free in the zflash. Not certain what is causing troubles or how to clear
out any more space.
I have tried the new command, but it does not appear to delete anything. If I run the command and confirm that I want to delete -sw, it goes back to the prompt. If I then run a dir, I still see that it appears. When I try to do the arch command, I still get an error about not enough space.
Backup the config.text file somewhere or copy and paste your config into a notepad. Can you try the command "format flash:"? This command will wipe everything.
I made a backup of my cofiguration and uploaded to my tftp server. Shortly after I intiated the format flash: the system became non-responsive. I restarted the system to try to recover as you might guess the system is not responding. There is a light sequence two bottom flashing green light for about 15 seconds, then 2 red lights and one green lights. Is there anything that I can do to recover this unit?
The system never become "non-responsive". Formating the flash memory can sometimes take an agonizing 30 seconds.
Sorry about the delay, I was out of the office. I was able to try the system reset from the instructions you sent, but I've not been able to get the unit to respond. Holding the reset button in for about 20 seconds I was able to get the status light to change to red. From there the other two lights turn green and all three are steady. I have let the unit set for an hour before restarting the unit, but then it goes into the same sequence of flashing lights as before. I have been trying to connect the unit via a network cable, should I try a different type of connection? Thanks for all your help on this unit.
I was able to get back to the office to try and get the unit going before I leave town. I reread all the instructions and noticed that my .default name was off slightly. After correcting that, I was able to get the unit to start talking. I have now completed the update and my unit is online and working. Thanks, for all your help. I can't tell you how much I greatly appreciate it. Thanks again.
OLD MESSAGE *** I'm currently using a straight thru cable. I'm currently using tfrp32 and have assigned the ip address of 10.0.0.28 to my internal nic. Let me try again tonight or tomorrow morning and let you know. I will be out of the office for the rest of the day.
