file verify auto

Should I put "file verify auto" on my switch?

I usually just look at how many bytes the ios takes up on another switch to verify that the copied IOS file was copied correctly.

I usually use the "verify" command to inspect IOS files just before applying them.  It's a matter of personal preference whether you use auto verify or do it manually.  Most IOS upgrades will verify the file as part of the upgrade, so it's kind of redundant either way.

How does the upgrade verify the file?

I usually tftp the ios from my computer to the switch flash and then change the boot path for the switch. Sometimes I have to delete the old IOS to make room in flash for the new IOS version. When does the verification happen in that situation?

If you do it that way, there would not be an auto verify.  I was referring to the "install" command that verifies and unpacks the new IOS, which is not available on all devices.  Sorry, i should have been more clear.

does "file verify auto" just automatically add the /verify switch when using the copy command?
