  • Updated 4 years ago
I am unable to upgrade the extreme switches due to some issues in the connectivity between switch and the laptop......
·         I have tried pushing the image via management port but unable to do the same as not able to ping the laptop from switch(I am able to ping the switch from laptop but while uploading tftp falling timed out).

·         Created a separate vlan and assign ip address and tried but wasn’t helpful(Unable to ping the laptop from switch).

·         I have done the basic troubleshooting as used 3 different laptops and disable antivirus/firewall. But issue persist.

Please help on this...

Which TFTP program you are using? Use 3cDeamon TFTP software, it works.
Also, set TFTP timeout and Retry parameters on the switch

Good morning ComraDe

What type of sitch are you using? If it is an XOS based switch did you use the VR option in the command? For example ping vr vr-mgmt , same for TFTP but it will be TFTP -v vr mgmt

Thanks

If you are using mgmt you need vr mgmt if you are inline use vs - default. Download command as jason said for new code tarp for other files

Wallace,
As Paul has stated

If you are using mgmt you need vr mgmt if you are inline use vs - default. Download command as jason (I) said for new code tarp for other files

First thanks for your kind respone. but sorry, what you mean "new code tarp for other files"? I am using inline to download the image and with vr vr-default option, but it still failed. However, it works when I used management port with vr vr-mgmt. Is there any restriction for tftp function on inline ports?

If your TFTP server is connected through MGMT port then you should use vr vr-mgmt command. If  your TFTP server is connected on normal data port then you should use vr vr-default command.

By default, there are two servers are present on Extreme device, vr-mgmt and vr-default. You could confirm this by executing show vlan command output.
