IOS Upload

Hi,

Thanks all in advance,

In XYZ site network there are multiple cisco 2950 switches, Unfortunatly I could not able to connect to the TFTP server from this switch, all other are succesfull. Is there any way that I copy the IOS image from other cisco 2950 switch flash to this switch.

FYI, I have intsalled the TFTP server on the machine where this switch can reachable and uploaded successfully.

My question is Can we copy the IOS image one switch flash to other switch flash(similar Model, Image and every thing)... :-)

Regards

Ranga

Re: IOS Upload

Hello Ranga,

routers can act as tftp server with the command

tftp-server

I've checked command reference for 2950 last release and I didn't find it

see

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst2950/software/release/12.1_22_ea11x/command/reference/cli3.html

So I think it is not supported.

However, I think you can use as TFTP server also a router placing the switch image on its flash and configuring it as ttfp-server for that file

Hope to help

Giuseppe

Re: IOS Upload

I've done this several times.

You have two choices:

1. If you are only copying one file, like the .bin file, I suggest using the "copy tftp:/// flash:"

2. If you are extracting the .TAR file, you can use "archive tar /x tftp:/// flash: "

Hope this helps.
