1)from the master, I cannot see the flash of any member, on any of my stacks. I have the option of 'sh flash', and 'sh flash1', both of which are identical (switch 1 is master), but sh flash2, which should show me the flash of the member (when I have a pair) will always fail.
On my stack of eight 3750s, I have the option of flash and flash8 (switch 8 is the master)... nothing else. Nothing in between.
Therefore, I do not have the ability to tftp the new IOS to the member switches... only the master.
2) Auto-update has never worked. Once I set the boot system switch all path to the new IOS and reboot, members will always come up in version-mismatch.
Again, from the link, the command to 'copy IOS flash2' will not be usable, as flash2 is not an option. I'm left with no choice but to break the stack, tftp the IOS to the member (which is now its own master), set the boot path, and reconnect the stack.
I have a couple questions for anyone running 3750 stacks:
Can you view the flash of your member switches?
Can you tftp to your members?
Have you tried the batch IOS update process, and been able to set the 'boot system switch all flash:path' and had success?
I have seven more stacks to go, so any suggestions/links would be greatly appreciated.
I have a 3750 stack (pair) to test with, running 12.1(19), which I used to try this way to update. I was able to tftp to the master, and set the boot system path to the new IOS (12.2(35)). After reload, the member came up as version mismatch as expected.
When I launched 'archive copy-sw /destination-system 2 /reload 1' from the master (switch 1), I received a "cannot determine version" error, and the process stopped.
it looks all fine and your all 8 switches have same version running.
I understood show flash1, flash2, flash3.....and so on should give you the flash details for the relevant switch flash. But if this does not work for you then there is another way you can check each individual flash.
From your normal prompt i.e EAST-SW1#
you can use the session command to have a limited session to your member switches and watch the prompt as it will correspond to relevant switch too.
Session 1, 2, 3 ....7 will take you directly to relevant flash....
for example EAST-SW1#session 4
and so on
please note you will be limited to few other commands while you are on a member switch 1 to 7 as your master switch is 8.
You can also use Dir to see the contents of each flash, then exit to go back to your main flash
then repeat this for session 2....to 7. and exit to go back to main flash which is flash8 in your case.
