I just got done using xmodem to load a .bin file to a switch. This took close to 4hrs to complete and I can now assign an IP address to the switch and use something faster to now work with the -tar file, so I can finish loading the rest of the needed files to flash.
I understand that the file size used with xmodem is the reason that it took so long, and it was only around 12Mb. There has got to be a quicker way to do this... some have mentioned to up the baud rate to 115200, but even this is slow. (dog slow).
I was wondering if there is a tiny tiny image file out there, that all it does is allow the ability to add an IP address to the management vlan, so I can than use a TFTP Server to get the larger -tar file onto the switch and then expand it from the switch. The smaller the file the quicker xmodem will work.
Unless there is another quicker option out there to replace an image on a switch then using xmodem.
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
I eventually solved a perplexing problem setting up telnet for a new switch. I installed a new Cisco WS-03560X-24P switch connected to an existing Cisco 4506 running a WS-X4013-10GE Sup II-Plus.
