But defore for example we could see:

  • To download the image file from the TFTP server to the switch by entering this privileged EXEC command
    Switch# archive download-sw tftp:[[//location]/directory]/image-name.tar
  • The installation process extracts the tar file with all the files and the IOS image, and sets the BOOT directory to the created directory in flash memory. The process takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes, and at some stages might appear to have stopped.
  • The switch is configured to boot automatically, but you can enter the show boot privileged EXEC command to verify the boot path list and see if a manual boot is necessary.

Switch # archive tar / xtract tftp :/ / flash:

- This helps to creates a tar file, lists the files in a tar file, or extracts the files from a tar file.

This doesnt looks like any defect. Please see the below doc for a reference.
