Upgrade switch IOS on one switch in stack manually

Hi

I have a stack of two 2960X switches. They have different version IOS and I would like to upgrade to the higher version IOS of the two. The Master holds the lower version IOS. Is it possible to initiate a upgrade of the lower version IOS manually?

How does the system know where to copy from?

Sorry, forget it. I hadn't read your post correctly.

Your telling it where to copy from in the statement copy ...copy flash2:c3750:............................. flash1:

so that tells the switch copy file x from flash2 and then put it in flash 1 , then you can check flash1 with ...dir flash1:    to make sure your file is there

as switch 1 is the master and your upgrading it , rebooting it to bring the new software up may cause the stack to reboot

You should have 2 flash like below as stacked with 2 switches

xxxxxx#dir flash1:
Directory of flash:/

Yeah, sorry. I misread your previous post. Missed out the command where you copied from => to.

It's currently copying :)

Thankz

Frank

cool ,  last thing would be set the boot statement globally for all as example below , so to make sure there both on same image when they come up

boot system switch all flash:/c3750-advipservicesk9-mz.122-25.SEE2.bin

save it , reload , stack will reboot then come back up with same image each switch

Thank you. After fumbling around with copying to wrong locations (doh), I finally succeeded :) Thankz alot Mark.

no probs glad I could help
