PIX file management -restoring image to PIX

I'm having difficulty restoring an image to the PIX from my tftp server. Please see the commands and screen output below...

csbhugoton(config)# write net 172.10.1.57:csbpixold

Building configuration...

TFTP write 'csbpixold' at 172.10.1.57 on interface 1

[OK]

csbhugoton(config)# copy tftp://172.10.1.57/csbpixold flash

copying tftp://172.10.1.57/csbpixold to flash:image

!

No PIX image found in downloaded file

Re: PIX file management -restoring image to PIX

Use the .bin extensio in the tftp command and that should probably help.

Re: PIX file management -restoring image to PIX

Are you trying to restore the OS on the PIX or trying to copy a config file from the TFTP server ?

Write net saves the config file to a TFTP server and you are trying to restore it back using copy tftp flash and the PIX is thinking that its a PIX image that you are trying to load.

I tried to do the restore, and I got duplicate entry messages. So I did a but then I lose my telnet session and have to reboot.

I'm probably making this harder than it is.

Re: PIX file management -restoring image to PIX

also, to answer the question, I'm just trying to push config files around.

If I could push them to flash, I could do it from my desktop. It appears that pushing to RAM causes the network connection to go away, so it would require the console serial connection.

Re: PIX file management -restoring image to PIX

The available copy commands are via,

tftp or http/https. Both these documents refer to copying an image from Tftp or HTTP server and then installing it into flash. These commands dont seem to work like the copy tftp flash commands in router, where they let you download a file from TFTP server and store it in flash.

It looks like you will have to use the console cable so that you dont lose the telnet connection and cut and paste the config file into ram.

I will check mean while if there is another work around for this. Unless some body else have a better suggestion.
