SF 200E-24P not upgrading firmware

Help!

I have just received a Cisco SF 200E-24P switch and need to upgrade the firmware. The current version is 1.0.0.12 an need to load the latest (or at least 1.1) to get CDP etc. However when I use the upgrade option in the switch I get an error of..

Firmware Image download through HTTP failed. Wrong File Type

I have tried 3 different versions of the firmware and get the same error message each time.

Can anyone help?

Regards

Simon

Hello Simon,

To verify, you are trying to load a .ros file? Are you using HTTP or TFTP?

Can you factory default the switch then try to upload the 1.1.0.73 (second firmware released)?

Here are all releases;

Correct, I am trying to upload a .ros file via the web interface using HTTP

I tried resetting the switch to factory defaul and uploading the 1.1.0.73 firmware.

Still the same error...

Firmware Image download through HTTP failed. Wrong File Type

Anything else?

Simon, my apoligies. I am a complete idiot!

I just read the email notification and saw SF 200 E. This is why! It uses a .stk file.

SF200e-24x_FW_1.0.5.1.stk
