Hi,

As you can see in the flash below c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2 is a directory.

   5  drwx         192  Feb 28 1993 19:06:54 -05:00 c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2

In order to copy image to the tftp issue the follwoing command:

>> dir flash/c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2:   ------> in order to go under the doirectory first

After you issue the follwoing command use that path name in order to copu the image to tftp for ex:

copy flash/c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2/c2960-lanbase-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin tftp:

Hope the above helps.

Regards,

Swati

Hi Sdheer,

How to copy entire tar file to tftp ? Directory IOS are actually .tar file in the flash. So what is the procedure to copy .tar file from flash to tftp ?

How to copy entire tar file to tftp ? Directory IOS are actually .tar file in the flash.

Go to the Cisco website and download the IOS because you can check if the file downloaded is corrupt or not.  

Unlike copying an IOS from the flash to a TFTP server there is no way to determine if the file is corrupt or not.

I got the solution. Please apply below command,

archive upload-sw tftp:[[ // location ] / directory ]/ image-name .tar

Switch#archive upload-sw tftp://192.168.1.1/c3750e-universalk9-mz.150-2.SE9.tar 

Above is the successful procedure to copy any .tar file (it could be IOS or any other file) from CISCO switch flash: to tftp: server .......

can any body help me how to copy license from tftp file to my cisco router 1900

The gotcha is the ":".  so use, copy flash:/xxxxxx/xxxx.bin to tftp:

 

everything works pefectily. Remeber to create a xxxx.bin file in destination folder before coping the trasfer with rwx. I paste mine below. if you need more info, please email me at dirit@ou.ac.lk so that I can share config.

ITD_AS1_2960x#copy flash:/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5/c2960x-universalk9-mz.150-2.EX5.bin tftp:
Address or name of remote host []? 10.72.64.21
