I am tasked with upgrading the IOS of over 500 devices and would like to LMS to do this. I have a test switch that I've tried this on several times and it keeps failing. Because of the nature of the business, we are only allowed to use secure protocols so I am trying to do this using SCP. We are not allowed to use TELNET or TFTP at all. I have successfully been able to import images from switches so I don't understand why it isn't working in reverse. Here is an example of one of my attempts:
Protocol Order for Config-operations : SSH,HTTPS,SCP
Total number of device(s) to be processed : 1
Processing Device : TEST_Switch
Start Time : Wed Oct 23 09:27:10 MDT 2013
Device is locked for exclusive access.
The supported protocols for image transfer are: SCP

Is it necessary for TELNET to be used? I thought SSH was an option as well. I've also attached the log file. I've replaced real identifying information (server name and IP address for security purposes) Please help!
