I am getting the below error when I try to TFTP to a server in our domain. Any ideas. I checked the permissions on the target directory and it is good, in fact I opened it wide open to test and get the same error. I can TFTP to my laptop fine. The servers are domain controllers running windows 2003.
Switch#copy bootflash: tftp:
Source filename ? cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA4.bin
Address or name of remote host ? 10.89.3.31
TFTP: error code 2 received - Access violation
%Error opening tftp://10.89.3.31/cat4000-i9s-mz.122-25.EWA4.bin (Permission denied)
Is there any chance of any security software on your server? Don't forget Windows 2003 does have
Windows firewall. Also ensure you have Write permissions on the TFTP directory on the TFTP server.
I thought of that.....it is disabled. I don't see anything in the event logs as well.
The reason TFTP is on the doamin controllers is it is needed for RIS.
Couple of things
1) Are you sure that there is no subdirectory under 10.89.3.31 that you should be including in your tftp string
2) What is the tftp server you are running and what account is it running as ?
Also be aware that in some implementations of the TFTP server, the file must already exist in the directory (though that is more typically *nix than Windows).
Also are you sure that the TFTP service is running?
Service is running. It is running on a domain controller for RIS installs. I have done this before...maybe last year was the last time. The default location for this is the e:\remoteinstall I made the permissions on it everyone full just to test and still no luck.
This worked for me:
sudo apt-get install xinetd tftpd tftp
# nano /etc/xinetd.d/tftp , enter the following:
protocol = udp
port = 69
socket_type = dgram
wait = yes
user = nobody
server = /usr/sbin/in.tftpd
server_args = /tftpboot
disable = no
sudo mkdir /tftpboot
sudo chmod -R 777 /tftpboot
sudo chown -R nobody /tftpboot
sudo service xinetd restart
# nano /etc/selinux/config , enter the following:
# flush the iptables to disable them.
# create the files and put "chmod 777" on them.
