Cisco Prime Infrastructure 2.1 Image Distribution Problem
Trying to upgrade a switch using Prime. The switch Sync's fine with Prime, SNMP and Telnet/SSH credentials seem to work. However when trying to push an Image I get the following errors in the job description:
Distributing image c3560-ipbasek9-tar.150-2.SE6.tar using protocol TFTP FAILURE Distributing image c3560-ipbasek9-tar.150-2.SE6.tar using protocol SCP FAILURE
How can I find out more details as to what exactly the failure is?
I found that when using the "Software Deployment" instead of the "Image" tab under a device in the "Device Work Center" to do upgrades, I encounter this problem less often.
However the problem still does occur at times and an additional problem I'm facing is that at times the upgrade jobs succeed fine, but the devices never get rebooted (in spite of having the snmp-server system-shutdown string in the config). In that case the job will never finish and shows as 'running' 10 days later. The Job also can't be cancelled or aborted successfully.
I can confirm that using Software Deployment works better. I have no firewall between my CPI and switches so the problem must be in CPI. Can't speak for the reboot problem though as I never reboot the devices from CPI.
I am really tired of this - Cisco upgrades their software products and breaks half of the features in the process. Please, somebody tell me how/where to properly configure FTP and HTTP as an option for software distribution in Prime 2.1. I see where I should be able to select them as options, but alas - they are not listed at all. TFTP is an awful protocol to perform upgrades over WAN links. Distribution was bullet proof in LMS 4.x...

I am going to design and build an LAN network under a tunnel underground with long distance between the switches.
