X435 USB copy of XOS File fails with now space left on device

X435 USB copy of XOS File fails with now space left on device

Contributor II
I would like to update the X435 from USB.
the switch deletes the image on the USB stick after install - this is a bit anoying
this does not solve my problem, because X435 throws an error when I try to copy the XOS file:

* X435-24P-4S.4 # cp /usr/local/ext/summitlite_arm- /usr/local/tmp/
Copy 'summitlite_arm-' from '/usr/local/ext' to '/usr/local/tmp'? (y/N) Yes
cp: write error: No space left on device
touch: /usr/local/tmp: No space left on device
* X435-24P-4S.5 # Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/logging/", line 892, in emit
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/logging/", line 852, in flush
IOError: [Errno 28] No space left on device
Logged from file, line 642

Is there another partition with more space?
Just for information, how much space/flash does the x435 have? compared to X440G2 or 5320?

Thank You

it will simply not work to copy a xos x435 image from usb to /usr/local/tmp because the image is ~45MByte and the partition is ~20MByte






rm all images you dont need


try again

Hi Anton,

Also curious what command you're using for the install? Are you trying to download/copy and install separately? Could you try the 'download image' or 'download url' commands listed here depending on your version? You can optionally 'install' at this time or later depending on your answer to the prompt.
