  • Copy IOS TFTP - file does not exist

    I have a cisco 2950 24prt switch. I want to copy the IOS to a TFTP server (which is on the same subnet and is pingable and I can telnet it so I know the connection is solid. The IOs is sitting on the root of the flash - not a sub directory. When I issue the command set I recieve an error message stating the file DOES NOT exist when in fact it does. I can copy the running and startup configs to a TFTP server with no problem. The spelling of the file is correct. I have on idea what could be the problem. I have never had as problem like this pushing a IOS (.bin file) to an TFTP server.

    The output from my 2950 switch is:
    SW2>en
    Password:
    SW2#show flash

    Directory of flash:/

    Hi pedalit,

    You've entered the filename incorrectly.

    SW2#copy flash tftp
    Source filename []? c2950-i6q412-mz.121-11.EA1.bin

    2 -rwx 2664051 Mar 01 1993 00:03:10 c2950-i6q4l2-mz.121-11.EA1.bin

    You have been putting a "1" rather than an "l"...

    Stuart

      Thanks Stuart,

      I would have never caught my typo.

      I am LOL at my mistake and embarrassed at the same time.

      All the best,

      David
