Do not extract the image.  Simply use the CIVS-IPC-2XXX-V2.1.7.bin.gz file that you downloaded from Cisco.com to perform the upgrade.

What firmware version are the 2500s on now?

2.1.6.

D'oh! It should work then. Let's see what the mothership comes back with.

Works like a charm. Thank you Sean.

Please see a question a posted under the Mass move of Cameras from one media server to another in VSM 6.2.0 post. I have a question about migrating user accounts between servers not linked via a network.

Hi Ainsley,

I'm glad Sean could resolve your issue.  Please be aware that there are 2 enhancement requests I filed to prevent others from having similar problems with the VSMC camera upgrade process.

CSCti31580 - Require validation for VSMC Camera Firmware Upgrade Image.  (Code the utility to perform a file check at least of the file suffix before attempting the upgrade)

CSCti31614 - VSM 6.3 Install Guide should list .gz as the file type for camera fw upgrade

Please pass the word.  I know it's a bit confusing since upgrading the 25xx series cameras through their web interface requires using the extracted .bin, while the VSMC upgrade utility uses the compressed .gz file (which contains the .bin)

Thanks,

Jim

Thanks for the follow up Jim. I'll pass it on.
