3120 Switch Stack Upgrade

Andrew Hernandez


I've been reading through examples on how to use the stack configuration and how upgrades are supposed to auto-magically upgrade when a member has a different IOS version than than stack master.  Am I doing something wrong in thinking the master should just need the auto-upgrade enabled and maybe the download-sw (path to IOS.bin file) in the config file?

So far I've tried to force the download by the copy-sw command which did not do anything, no logs nor did it try to move it over.  I can reload a switch and see it try to download, errors below.  Is there something I'm missing or just leaving out in the master switch config maybe?

Master Switch IOS version: cbs31x0-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE9.bin

Members IOS version: cbs31x0-universal-mz.122-50.SE3
