Cisco Catalyst 3550

I am upgrading 6 Cisco Catalyst 3550 switch from 12.1.9 code to 12.2.46 SE6 this weekend. I want to copy of the old code. I've tried the standard copy flash:name tftp and archive upload-sw but they both error stating its a directory.

%Error opening flash:c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c (Is a directory)

Any input on the best way to do this would be greatly appreciated.

Mark,

Have you got ".tar"? Try me.

Switch#archive upload-sw tftp://A.B.C.D/c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c.tar

HTH,

Hi Mark,

You boot up image is stored inside the directory c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c. Use the following command to determine where is the image stored:

show boot

I suspect the image is in the following path

flash:/c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c/c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c

Jerry,

Thanks for the input. I understand I can pull the c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c.bin file from the directory. I want the whole directory. I assume it needs to be tar'd/zipped before pulling it off.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mark,

Have you tried the following command

archive tar /create tftp://x.x.x.x/xyz.tar flash:/c3550-i9q3l2-mz.121-9.EA1c
