im configured well enough to ping successfully both directions, so I assume networking is ok (ip on vlan, static ip on laptop, directly connected) sh ip route sees the laptop ip as D and a metric of 1, able to ping just fine, in fact, I can telnet just fine, but when I do a 

download image 10.50.219.101  XOSimagename.xos   I get <erro:EPM.Upgrade.fail> slot-2:upgrade failed, script: download failed. Error: failed to download image - tftp: sendto: network is unreachable. 

thats not true, even the switch knows that. im new to extreme, so hopefully I just flubbed the command. 

Thoughts?

you need to add the VR to the command (the default is vr-mgmt, which you're probably not using for this.) it's also best practice to add the image slot you're installing to (primary or secondary) so it would go like so:

download image 10.50.219.101  XOSimagename.xos vr VR-Default {primary | secondary}

I still forget to specify it every time!

I think they probably default to vr-mgmt because the out of band management ports
