I have a FCX-624S, I want to upgrade the firmware image, currently it runs version 07.0.01b.
Before making some mistake, I would like to backup both the firmware images installed on the switch now (primary and secondary flash partition). So I tried with "copy flash tftp <server-ip> FCXS07001b.bin primary" and "copy flash tftp <server-ip> FCXR07001b.bin secondary"; both those commands report an error:
"FCX624S Switch#TFTP: received error request -- code 0 message Permission denied
Flash to TFTP Error - code 16"
Do you have any suggestion?

That is the correct command to copy the images. But the error looks like your TFTP server will not accept files. Try uploading a file from another computer to see if the TFTP server will accept files.
P.S. I find using tftpd32/64 a very good tool for this.

The upgrade procedures are usually found on release notes. Log onto my.brocade.com , go to DOWNLOADS,
Under 'Product Downloads', Select 'Ethernet switches' in the pulldown menu. The FCX releasenotes can be found under 'FastIron CX'.
Hope this helps
