Xmodem on 2950

Hi All,

The flash –on a CAT 2950- was mistakenly erased using erase flash.

I am trying to upload a new version using xmodem to get 2 sorts of errors as detailed below.

Nothing mentioned on Cisco website regarding this issue.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Regards,

Re: Xmodem on 2950

You missed to initialize the flash. You need to Initialize Flash with init_flash first, then load_helper, then xmodem the file.

Hi,

try this,

Switch# init_flash

Switch# load_helper

then try to use copy xmodem: flash:

Still if u find problem thn,

boot the flash externaly using,

Switch# boot xmodem:

and then copy the ios either thro. xmodem or thro. tftp from the priviledge mode.

I hope this will solve ur problem

Re: Xmodem on 2950

Hi Guys,

Thanks for your replies.

I didn't miss initialising the flash as it already initialised (check the output I already attached). Even thought i re-initialised it but to no avail.

Re: Xmodem on 2950

are you doing this through hyperterminal and using the send file feature? If so make sure xmodem is selected in drop down arrow. I ran into this problem with my hyperterminal setup before.

Re: Xmodem on 2950

Hi,

As joel said, Pls make sure that you are using send file command with xmodem protocol.

Still if u find problem, pls try to boot the ios externally thro,' Switch: boot xmodem:

and then upload the ios thro. tftp or thro. xmodem.

Re: Xmodem on 2950

Problem solved!

You won't guess what was wrong.

The IOS image I was trying to copy was corupted.

I re-downloaded it and it worked from the first time.

Thanks guys for your appreciated contributions.
