Hello

I am attempting to upgrade sw on Cisco 5508 controller via CLI because I want to use CLI over GUI.

Device is not on production network

My laptop is my tftp server and has code:     AIR-CT5500-K9-7-0-240-0.aes

     upgrading code from:     

          Product Version.................................. 6.0.199.4

          Bootloader Version............................... 1.0.1

          Field Recovery Image Version..................... 6.0.182.0

(Cisco Controller) >transfer download mode tftp

(Cisco Controller) >transfer download serverip 1.1.1.1

(Cisco Controller) >transfer download path C:\TFTP-Root

(Cisco Controller) >transfer download filename AIR-CT5500-K9-7-0-240-0.aes

(Cisco Controller) >transfer download start

I am getting the following error

TFTP Code transfer starting.

% Error: Code file transfer failed - Error from server: Bailing out to bad characters in filename: '

Please advise on what I am doing wrong

The ":" character is the culprit.


If the default TFTP directory is "TFTP-Root" then you should only put "\" in this line.
