NAM- image Verification failed..

Dear All,

i have a problem upgrading the NAM module: check below my status:


root@NAM1.wanna_upgrade# show version

NAM application image version: 2.2(1a)

Maintenance image version: 2.1(1)

NAM Daughter Card Micro code version: (NAM)

BIOS Version: 4.0-Rel 6.0.4


I'm patching the NAM with Cat6500 NAM Application Image Release 2.2 Patch 1.0


Whenever i try to upgrade to the Application Image Release 3.1-1a for Catalyst 6500 the following error appears:


Verifying c6svc-nam.3-1-1a.bin.gz. Please wait...

Error: Verification failed.

Error: The patch you are trying to apply is not valid,

or not compatible with this release.

Error: Cannot continue with patch apply. Exiting...


I need to upgrade, need to view the Reporting tab..

Any help..!!

Re: NAM- image Verification failed..

Hi Tamer,

you may be using the wrong image, please do a show module to verify what you have a WS-SVC-NAM:


The NAM application and maintenance images are not inter-changeable.

•The images for the WS-X6380-NAM should not be used to upgrade the WS-SVC-NAM-1 and WS-SVC-NAM-2

•The images for the WS-SVC-NAM-1 and WS-SVC-NAM-2 should not be used to upgrade the WS-X6380-NAM


You may also want to check the release notes the make sure you are following the correct upgrade procedures:
