how to copy a CatOs file from a Catalyst 6500 to another one
I can't find a documentation showing how to upgrade the CatOs of a Catalyst 6500 by downloading the system file from another Catalyst 6500. I don't want to use a TFTP server. My requirement is that I only have at my disposal 2 devices: one Catalyst 6500 with an up-to-date CatOs and another Catalyst 6500 with an old CatOs.

Hi Pascal, if you have a PCMCIA card simply copy the up-to-date image onto it using copy sup-bootflash:filename.bin slot0:filename.bin, move it to the 6500 that requires upgrading and copy back to sup-bootflash and change any boot variables as needed. Note if ATA flash used substitute disk0: for slot0:
This will not update any MSFC(2) images you may have.
