Does your tftp server is configured to read and write? Which tftp-server are you using?

Thanks for responding. the Network TFTP, I do not know b'cuz I have not set it up but I tried copying to my own Laptop using tftp64 and Winagent but both failed in same fashion as network tftp failed.

 

I'm new to MDS. I used winagent to upgrade IOS/firmware on these two switches no problem but now that I want to save runing-config to network tftp it fails. I was wondering if I haven't used teh commands correctly?

 

Best Regards,

Solved!

 

we allowed all subnets to write to tftp server and it solved it.

 

xxx-NEXUS-SW-A# copy running-config tftp://10.1.200.8
Enter destination filename: [xxx-NEXUS-SW-A-running-config]
Trying to connect to tftp server......
Connection to server Established. Copying Started.....

TFTP put operation was successful
Copy complete.
