Nexus 5K: scp not working correctly -> Secure copy: Access Denied

Hi. When I tried scp from my linux box, I was prompted for the password but the result returned "Secure copy: Access Denied." is this related to aaa or ACL? Please advise.

Thanks.

Maybe you forgot to enable the SCP feature with the following command:

feature scp-server

My 5K doesn't have that option. Image "n5000-uk9-kickstart.5.2.1.N1.3.bin". Is it too old?

(config)# feature scp-server
^
% Invalid command at '^' marker.

This error notifies because of two reasons as follows :

1. Need to enable feature scp-server in the switch where you are trying upload ios.
2. If you are copy ios from another switch it means feature scp-server need to enable on other end switch also.
3. By default, in all the nexus switches feature scp-server to be enabled to upload nexus ios.
