How to copy IOS from XR router to XR router?

I want to copy IOS packages from one XR ASR9K router to other XR ASR9K router, I have tried it via tftp by creating tftp server in one router, but it was unsuccessful.
Please find below logs.

TFTP configuration

tftp vrf default ipv4 server homedir harddisk: max-servers 10
tftp client source-interface Loopback1

Copying file via tftp

yeah sorry guys that won't go... like copying one windows or linux distro from one to another device, you almost need to make aperfect mirror of the disk with all the hidden boot parm files etc.

it is best to fresh install a new device via the mini-vm which is the bootable disk image for installation.

that vm file if present on one device can be pulled via (t)ftp.

Hi

I would suggest first to check the route, file permissions to 777.
You can also check for the blocked process in XR and try restart tftp_fs and sftp-server process.

Thanks

Hi Sudhir,

Thanks for your help!

I have tried to restart/start the tftp_fs process, but not successful. It is also not showing in processes

Hello xthuijs,

You mention that the mini-vm image can be pulled(if present) from another router's harddisk using tftp. My goal is to turboboot a 9910 from another A9K's harddisk, where I have already placed the mini-vm, through the management LAN. I am trying to copy the image with tftp as a test for the tftp server in the device but it is not working.

 

TFTP server is running on a ASR9001 with config as follows:

 

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:RR101#dir harddisk: | in mini
Sat Jun 6 09:39:01.236 ECU

The client's configuration is as follows:

cdp
vrf dcn-gfb
ipv4 address 10.116.37.9 255.255.255.192
!

 

All RSPs are on the same management LAN. There is just a 2960X in the middle. I have connectivity to the RSP where the tftp server is running:

 

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:P02#ping vrf dcn-gfb 10.116.37.62
Sat Jun 6 09:30:53.027 ECU
Type escape sequence to abort.

!!!!!
Success rate is 100 percent (5/5), round-trip min/avg/max = 1/1/1 ms

 

But when I try to copy the file (as a test to see if I can pull a file from the A9K as tftp server) it does not work.

 

RP/0/RSP0/CPU0:IPTCHL2CAR202#copy tftp://10.116.37.62/asr9k-mini-px.vm-6.6.3 harddisk:
Sat Jun 6 09:30:29.467 ECU

%Error copying tftp://10.116.37.62/asr9k-mini-px.vm-6.6.3 (Error opening source file): No route to host

 

Both devices have cXR 6.6.3 SP1 running. I want to have this mini-vm image at hand to do a remote turboboot in case the migration to eXR 6.6.3 fails and need to roll back.

 

I would appreciate any insights on the matter. Thanks!

I think I just found the answer. When starting a tftp copy, not only the tftp client config has to be on the proper vrf, you also have to scpecify the vrf on the copy command.

Also, tftp has to be enabled on the proper interface in the control-plane configuration on the device who acts as the server.

Hi,

It shows “no route to host” error on IPTCHL2CAR202.
Can you make sure the tftp server 10.116.37.62 is reachable from IPTCHL2CAR202 on the right vrf?

Also if its reachable through a different vrf (not global) then metions the vrf name while coping like as follows.


copy tftp://10.116.37.62/asr9k-mini-px.vm-6.6.3 harddisk: vrf
