I can not squeeze flash: directory from Boot loader to load new IOS image by "xmodem" Flash directory is still full
Posted on 2008-11-18
I am upgrading a Cisco 3550 switch. At first I deleted my old image then try to load a new image from my TFTP server from my PC.
But I got error in TFTP server and then lost the connectivity from my Cisco 3550 XL. When I rebooted the Switch I got "Switch:" prompt, which is from boot loader, since I don't have any valid IOS image to boot.
Then I tried to load my new image using "xmodem" command and got failed due to unavailable space in the flash drive. As I deleted my old files and again tried to delete few other unnecessary files still I don't have enough space is Flash drive.
I need to free my flash drive to load new image. Need your expert help to resolve this issue.
Few Outputs from the Swtich
