I'm updating my Flash with the latest IOS. I've TFTP'ed the new bin to the flash directory and I've updated the boot path to point to this new bin file. However I want to remove the old bin file but it's in a directory and when I attempt to delete it I get the message the file doesn't exist. The command I'm typing is below. The switch I'm working on is a 2960 Series
When I do a dir command I get the following:
Directory of flash:/
2 -rwx 5209436 Mar 1 1993 00:06:57 +00:00 c2960-lanbase-mz.122-35.SE1.bin
3 -rwx 1919 Mar 1 1993 00:21:25 +00:00 config.text
4 -rwx 5 Mar 1 1993 00:21:25 +00:00 private-config.text
6 drwx 192 Mar 1 1993 00:06:34 +00:00 c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2
If you have the Tar files, they are in a compressed format and the only way you can load it on the switch is by using the " archieve " command.Tar file contains both the image file sand the SDM files to manage the switch via GUI, it has some other files for CMS as well. By using the " archieve " command all these files will be extracted and loaded on the switch flash. There is not other way to load the Tar file.
On the other hand, if you only load the .bin image file using the " Copy " command it will have only the image file. You will not get the CMS and SDM files on the switch.
