IOS Upgrade originating from a MPLS VRF

What is equivalant MPLS "copy tftp flash" command to copy an image from a TFTP server located in a VRF? I can't get the router to pull IOS images unless the TFTP server is located in the Global Routing Table. I do realize this may be a stupid question btw... :)


Re: IOS Upgrade originating from a MPLS VRF


depending on your platform and IOS version this might or might not work. In case it is supported, then use

"ip tftp source-interface ", where the interface in the the VRF.

Or let me formulate it the other way around: if it doesn´t work with the above command, then it is not supported/implemented yet.

Hope this helps! Pllease rate all posts.

You are correct that the "ip tftp source-interface" command will get it to work but only for images integrating CSCea89507.

Use the following link to find out in which images this DDTS is integrated:
