New 2960s will not archive

We have just purchased a number of the 2960s model switches.  I have one 'odd-ball' version of the switches out right now, it is WS-C2960S-48TS-S. It can't get it to sync the archive.  No other device is having problems.  The error states to check the DCMA log, but there is nothing of note in there.  Credentials pass, but testing the TFTP fails.  Any ideas?

Can you post/attach the display during power up?  I had a DoA on a shipment of 35 2960S.

Does the switch go into ROMmon or can you get the switch to go into ROMmon?

The switch is up and running properly (seemingly so anyway).  I discovered the problem later when I was looking at LMS and noticed there was a unit that was not collecting its config.  I updated the software to it and that did not help.  (see version information below).

I have now also noticed that it does not seem to understand 'ip dhcp snooping'.

Here is the switch version information:
