Re: New Cisco Switch Problem After Upgrade

It is all done, thank you so much! Quick recap in case someone comes across this and needs help:

  1. copied the c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13.bin file via xmodem
  2. copied a tar file that contained the c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13 folder. Within that folder I had both the bin file and html dir
  3. booted to the bin file
  4. archive tar /xtract the tar file 
  5. booted down and booted up again from the bin file located in the c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13 directory

Then I had access to the web gui express setup.


Thanks again!

Re: New Cisco Switch Problem After Upgrade

Sorry, last question here. Does the switch always boot from flash:? Do I need to copy those file system files to another place on the switch? When I boot up, it still tries to boot to the old FW that didn't install correctly. 


So, I boot up by holding mode during boot up, initializing flash, then running boot flash:c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13\c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13.bin


I tried to follow a guide that said to run:

clear boot system all

but I get '% Invalid input detected at '^' marker' which the '^' shows under the boot part of 'clear boot system all'


So, do I leave my c2960s-universalk9-mz.122-55.SE13 folder (which has the bin file and the html dir) in the flash: dir?

And second, how to I set the boot environment variable
