This is the first time I'm doing a firmware upgrade on a cisco switch. I'm use to dell.
I've been trying to do this for a few days now and not sure where i'm going wrong.
I first started with the usb but then I found out that you need to run the "compact" flag on the end.
I'm using solar winds SFTP/SCP tool to get my nxos.7.0.3.I7.10.bin on to it.
I'm following the Cisco Upgrade path
But i can't seem to get the image on there successfully.
It copies the file to 100% but then errors out saying
dstnexus03(config)# copy scp://firstname.lastname@example.org/nxos.7.0.3.I7.10.bin . compact vrf management
nxos.7.0.3.I7.10.bin 100% 940MB 8.6MB/s 01:50
Scp Compact of /bootflash/./nxos.7.0.3.I7.10.bin failed
Error doing scp
when I do ping the scp server from my nexus I get "No route to host"
But server can ping nexus.
Both are on the same vlan.
I have features enabled:
feature telnet feature bash-shell feature scp-server feature interface-vlan feature dhcp feature lldp
Not sure what I'm missing here?
what kind of SCP Server ? Linux ?
when you ping you need to use VRF management to reach SCP Server. Looks like your GRT table not aware SCP Server address
# ping x.x.x.x vrf management
You have 2 Options :
check ping is working and able to reach SCP server before proceed to copy
ssh user@scpserverip (using VRFmanagement as source) see are you able to connect.
Option2 . Download simple TFTP tool
easy to transfer the files.
