Upgrading 2960s stack (4)

Morning All,

I am currently carrying out upgrades on switches throughout a site at the moment, all going well until i have come accross this particular stack.

I am recieving the following when trying to load an image from a .tar

LRC1_2960S_Stack1#archive download-sw tftp://          

Loading c2960s-universalk9-tar.150-2.SE4.tar from (via Vlan50): !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- The reason we can see Old image unknown is because i have been running the /overwrite command and the image got as far as removing the old but then hanged on installing the new - i left this overnight.

This is now a new attempt this morning without the /overwrite command and still getting issues.... any ideas would be great.

Upgrading 2960s stack (4)

Hi everyone,

Seems that the stack has taken the image this time - i have to wait untill OOH to reload - but i will keep you updated.

Seemed to just not like it the first time and this timee after removing the /overwrite line seems to have done the trick.
