Copying from tftp to flash

Hi am having trouble copying file c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE from tftp server

to a new cisco catalyst c3560g switch, I installed the certificationkits tftp server on my local desktop and i  can ping the tftp server from the switch and vice versa, each time I run command on switch copy tftp flash  i keep getting no such file and i am sure i have copied the file to the default folder of the tftp server. I need some one to help me out and tell what am doing wrong.

Hi Willson,

Check your root (tftp folder), if it's correct.

Ping your host from switch, disable your windows firewall.

Check the full ios name: c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE.bin

copy tftp://192.168.3.47/c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE.bin flash:

Regards.

Re:Copying from tftp to flash

1. make a folder in your PC name tftp-root in your C: drive,

2. put your file in there,

3. bind  your PC IP to your tftp server.

Otherwise the switch will not be able to find the tftp server.

If all fail, you can copy Xmoden the file to your switch through your console cable.  It will take quite some time depence on how big the file is.

Re:Copying from tftp to flash

I am having difficulty in the original post detecting whether the file loaded to the PC is a bin file for which copy tftp: flash: is the appropriate method or whether it is the tar or archive file for which archive download-sw is the appropriate method.

Perhaps the original poster can provide some clarification.

Hi tried xmodem see below;

Destination filename [c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE.bin]?

Re:Copying from tftp to flash

I believe when you are specifying the file name, "c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE", you need to add the extension in there as well like this, "c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE.bin" where ".bin" is the extension.

Hi am having trouble copying file c3560-ipservicesk9-mz.150-1.SE from tftp server

What is the EXACT model is your 3560?  Not all models support IOS from 12.2(58)SE and 15.0.  This is because the older models only have 16 mb flash and, if this is your case, then the "highest" IOS version you can use is 12.2(55)SE.

If your appliance has 32 mb flash, then post the entire copy-tftp process.  I want to see the COMPLETE error message and your syntax.

3560G-24TS can support 15.0.

Re:Copying from tftp to flash

I'd recommend you download tftpd32 or 64 and work from there.

You mentioned certification kits so I assume this is a lab environment?
