Add a stack switch

I have 2 switches connected via Stack Cables. The first switch is running c3750-ipbasek9-mz.122-35.SE5.bin. The second is not running an IOS other than the bootloader. Can I automatically upgrade the second switch from the first?


Re: Add a stack switch

By default it tries to upgrade automatically, but mine didn't work. I just did this over the weekend, but what I ended up having to do was copy from the first switch to my sixth after deleting the IOS on the sixth switch:

del flash6:/name.of.bin

copy flash1:/name.of.bin flash6:

I then reloaded the 6th switch:

reload slot 6

It came up fine without the "VERSION MISMATCH"

Re: Add a stack switch

I thought it automatically upgraded. I think what happened is that I power cycled the 2nd switch while it was in the middle upgrading. I have an "Upgrade" folder on the 2nd switch now. When I try to boot to the .bin file contained in the folder, it gives me an error. I will delete the .bin file, reboot, and start over.

Unfortunately, I work at a hospital and will have to do this late tonight.
