TFTP between two extreme XOS switch


We have two NWIE cards with ExtremeXOS version , on one of the switches ssh module is not loaded, we need to copy SSH module .xmod file from switch A to switch B, however when i tried via intercon I am getting error as follows:

#download image "switch A IP add" nwi- vr "VR-Default" secondary
Do you want to install image after downloading? (y - yes, n - no, - cancel) Yes

Downloading to SwitchError: Failed to download image - tftp: timeout

I dont see any config under TFTP

Can anyone help?

Hi Rdmit,
Once xmods and xos files are installed, they are unpacked and deleted. It isn't possible to copy the files between switches like this. You'll need a fresh copy of the file.
Thanks Drew... Really appreciate your swift response on this 🙂

Also, to add on to what Drew said, EXOS only runs a TFTP client, not a server.

So even if there was a file to download (for example, grabbing a .xsf script file with 'tftp get ...'), you would not be able to copy it from another switch.
