3550 flash ios

Why the 3550 when doing the flash update by tar will prepend

c3550-i5q3l2-mz.121-11.EA1\ as the path for all the files ?

This normally do not happen on 2950 or 3500 .

Thanks.

Regards,

Patrizio

Try downloading the file again to make sure that the file was not corrupt. If that does not work then the best thing would be to get a hold of TAC and open a case.

Re: 3550 flash ios

I was also wondering what was going on but I think I know why this is.

You can store more than one IOS version on the flash.

So for each version a sub directory is created. Per sub directory the IOS bin file plus all the html-files are stored. In this case you can easely fall back to an earlier version.

I hopes this answers your question.

Re: 3550 flash ios

I was thinking the same thing , to have more than one IOS , but these happen

only if you use the complete bin+html package and not if you use only the bin image , i wonder why.
