Can not upload IOS?

I uploaded this IOS to over 200 routers, but one of them is keep returning an error message "Invalid checksum"

router#copy tftp flash:

Address or name of remote host []? x.x.x.x

Source filename []? c2600-ik9o3s-mz.123-21.bin

Destination filename [c2600-ik9o3s-mz.123-21.bin]?

Accessing tftp://x.x.x.x/c2600-ik9o3s-mz.123-21.bin...

Erase flash: before copying? [confirm]

Erasing the flash filesystem will remove all files! Continue? [confirm]

Any idea what's going on?


Re: Can not upload IOS?

I think you are trying to upload the image remotely.

You will encounter this error if the line is busy.

Since you already upload it to over 200 routers, I doubt that there is a problem with the image. However, it wouldn't hurt to run a checksum on the file in your TFTP server and compare it with the checksum from the url where you download the image.

Then, try to upload it again when the line is not busy.

Re: Can not upload IOS?

Hi Ahmed,

i had the similar kind of problem, the only difference is i was uploading the image vis XMODEM utility, because my IOS was corrupted, so i tried recovering using the XMODEM utility, it was uploading but finally with the error message "invalid check..." so finally we changed the flash & uploaded using the same procedure, it worked out, so if you ask me, try using the XMODEM utility if not try changing the FLASH as an last option.

Note: i tried this on Cisco 3640
