Re: Backup IOS image

Hi

You can make use of the archieve upload command to backup the whole tar file from the flash to the TFTP server.

or else you can copy out only the .bin file from the flash to the TFTP server using normal copy flash tftp which will ask for the file name which u need to enter the .bin file and the relevant TFTP server ip address details reqd to copy the ios code.

Also refer this link which explains how to upload the whole .tar file from the flash to tftp server..

Re: Backup IOS image

hi,

how about if the files are not in .tar ? with bin & html files.

Re: Backup IOS image

hi

If its not in the .tar you can copy the bin/html files using copy command.

But suggest to take the backup of ios (.bin) file and keep a copy of that.

Once you have some problem with the IOS code running in ur box u can very well easily restore the ios code back onto the box.

once you are thru with that restoration process you can get downloded from CCO and can upload it ..
