@ColbyWagoner

 

you question is very limited.

 

can you post please a bit more details ? in example switch type and FW Rel. ?

 

on ethernet switches, you must use the copy command, and make sure "TFTP" Server is Running and reachable.

The switches are ICX 7150's. I am trying to upgrade it to the beta. My PC can ping my TFTP server,but my switch cannot. My switch can ping my PC. So there is no connectivity between my TFTP server and my switch and I'd like to establish that

I don't think this is a issue on Switch side because:

 

->My PC can ping my TFTP server,.... "OK"

->....but my switch cannot. "????"

 

is the TFTP Installed on another PC/Server ?

 

however:

 

->My switch can ping my PC. "OK"

 

It show that the switch can established a connection with PC, and problable I assume this is reachable as well via Telnet.

 

you need simple to install TFTP on you PC or check IP configuration beetwen Switch and TFTP PC.

 

If you have a Firewall enable, I would suggest to disable it for short time.

I am still in this process, but I got the switch to accept the 

copy tftp flash x.x.x.x mnz.bin bootrom but when I try the command 

copy tftp flash x.x.x.x mnz.bin primary it fails with a TFTP to flash code error code 8. Do you have any knowledge of this?

Hi,

 

TFTP to Flash Error - code 8 means that it is the wrong file type

 

Is this definately the correct code for this switch? Where did you get it from, Brocade?

Mick
