TFTP IOS

Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm trying to copy an ios image to my tftp server, but it appears the IOS image is located inside a directory and for some weird reason I can only get the image to copy over if it's in the root of flash. I'm receiving this error "Destination filename [c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin]?%Error copying flash:c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin (destination path is identical)" Here is the command I'm using "ReedGroup_3560_1#copy flash:c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin flash:" Any information would be great.

Thanks

Oh BTW this is a 3550 switch

Re: TFTP IOS

Hi,

Try to use the following command:

copy flash:c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin tftp:

That will prompt your for the IP address of the TFTP server and destination filename and should work.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

This is what happened.

ReedGroup_3560_1#copy flash:c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin tftp:

Re: TFTP IOS

Hi,

When it prompts you for:

Destination filename [c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d/c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin]?

type in: c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Re: TFTP IOS

Hello,

I think the problem is that the directory does not exists on the TFTP server. Try the following:

Destination filename: c3560-i9-mz.121-19.EA1d.bin

That should put the file in the root of the TFTP server...

Re: TFTP IOS

Hello,

in addition, which TFTP server do you have ? Cisco recommends the one linked below, especially since most others have problems with file sizes above 16MB...:

http://tftpd32.jounin.net/
