ios 3850 upgrade confirmation through packages and files

I upgraded the Cisco switch 3850,for version 16.9. But i am not sure while installing the software package. with command.

switch#request platform software package install switch all file flash:cat3k_caa-universalk9.16.09.04.SPA.bin

switch is not in stack .Is it the right command.

when  gave the command.I think file not found message was there.i am not sure about it now whether it got properly installed because did it month before.

when i checked version got upgraded as 16.9.also i can do vlan and adding command to interface etc.

when i gave command,

Switch#dir flash:*.pkg
Directory of flash:/*.pkg

Directory of flash:/

You have all the files needed on flash for the upgrade. There is no need to upgrade again if all is working as expected.

BOOT variable does not exist

I've got some good news and some bad news.  

First, the good news.  The contents of the "packages.conf" is good.  The file is pointing to the 16.9.4 packages. 

And now for the bad news:  The boot variable is NOT pointing to the "packages.conf" file so the switch won't know what to boot.  

Fix this by doing the following: 

conf t
 boot system flash flash:packages.conf
end
wr

And then reboot the switch.

I gave this command and did reboot it gave output like this

Switch#boot
% Bad IP address or host name% Unknown command or computer name, or unable to find computer address
Switch#
Switch#boot

Re: ios 3850 upgrade confirmation through packages and files

Issuing boot at the global prompt ("Switch#") will return that because it isn't a command that is available at this prompt. It looks like you booted fine.

 

If you boot into ROMMON, it will be "switch:" instead of "Switch>" or "{YourName}>".

 

Now, if you're missing your config (e.g. you named the switch something else or something is missing) you have a different issue.

Current Boot Variables:
BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf;

Boot Variables on next reload:
BOOT variable = flash:packages.conf;
Manual Boot = no

Now show boot is showing like this

Re: ios 3850 upgrade confirmation through packages and files

As far as I can see, the switch has loaded 16.9.4.
This is the intended version. Correct?

Don't forget to clean up the old files: The flash space for the 3650/3850 cannot accommodate two (or more) firmware packages files.
