I need to upgrade the IOS to
to Support the service policy so to be able to rate limit a special interface'
Ok, use this command: archive download-sw /over tftp://<TFTP IP address>/IOS_filename.tar
Remember, use the IOS file with the TAR file extension.
Leo I'm in the same situation with a 3550. My question is if i load the K9 ios does it require me to enter a license key ?
If this is a newer Cisco 3650 then;
You should be able to do a "software install file ..." and install it that way. It should cleanup and remove any files to create enough space for the installation.
I often put the new software on a usb memory key, plug it into the switch, and install it from there.
If this is an older 3560 switch, use the "archive download-sw ..." command with a full install bundle. It will remove the old software as needed.
how i can use the archive download-sw command. as i need to upgrade
