IS there a way to upgrade the ios on a cisco 9200l switch using a usb drive instead of using a tftp server? If so could someone point me to the article or tell me how this can be done? These switches seem to be more complicated than previous switches. Thanks for your time.

Hi,

 

  You should be able to copy from usbflash0: to flash:

After trying the commands with both usb ports I get the same result if I try to copy the file to flash. Flash is read only. 

switch: copy usbflash1:/cat9k_lite_iosxe.16.12.03.SPA.bin flash:
Unsupported destination device/filesystem.

you are on switch: not on switch#

 

follow below thread to boot from USB, if not able to view USB follow next steps as per the thread :

I should be able to copy as you said but it doesn't work as I said before. I've tried the copy mode mentioned from Rommon mode and from switch# mode as well with no working results as of yet. 

As far as the link goes, he set his up to boot from a tftp server which isn't what i want to do. I can boot it from usb but I want to install the ios from the usb to the device flash: it just doesn't work like it use to. I will keep trying things and hope to find an answer.

Post the complete output to the command "dir usbflash0:"

I suggest for now to check the USB recognized, some USB may have issue, so check is the USB mounted on Cisco device.
