trying to change IP address to access tftp, in BootROM as version 2.0.2.1 does not allow us to use config none.

BootRom >  configip ipaddress 192.168.1.1/24 gateway 192.168.1.2
invalid ip address 192.168.1.1/24
configip - configure Mgmt Ethernet network parameters

Usage:
configip [ipaddress | ip] <ipaddr> [gateway | gw] <gatewayip> [netmask | nm] <netmask>

what is the correct command sequence dont know what mistake i am making here?

Subnet mask should not be specified with /24.
Use like in the example in this article.

You need to specify the netmask and not IP/mask in slash notation:

configip ipaddress 192.168.1.1 gateway 192.168.1.2 netmask 255.255.255.0

Which document did you use? Is there something that we need to update?
