Downloading an IOS image from a Cisco Switch

Hi All:

It seems I have forgotten how to do this simple task. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you in advance,

Ashley

copy flash:/(ios image filename) tftp

If it is in a folder then you will need the folder name/filename and then a destination (tftp).

The rest should be self evident.

Always check the MD5 of the image after it has transferred. Run the following command on the source device, get the MD5 and run it again on the destination device and verify against source MD5 output to ensure there is not any corruption of the image.

verify /md5 flash:c2811-advipservicesk9-mz.124-4.bin

Good article here on how to copy from one device to another.
