Hi Everybody,

In searching Cisco's website for a solution to copy the .bin files on a Nexus 5020 to my TFTP server, I found the following article (see below) and have a question re: the syntax.  
*****************************************************************************************************

switch# copy ftp: bootflash:
Enter source filename: n5000-uk9-kickstart.5.0.2.N2.1.bin
Warning: There is already a file existing with this name. Do you want to
overwrite (y/n)?[n] y

Enter vrf (If no input, current vrf 'default' is considered): management
Enter hostname for the ftp server: 172.1.1.10
Enter username: xxx
Password:
***** Transfer of file Completed Successfully *****
Note: Boot variable kickstart is set to
bootflash:/n5000-uk9-kickstart.5.0.2.N2.1.bin


*****************************************************************************************************

I seem to be misunderstanding the command :     Warning: There is already a file existing with this name. Do you want to overwrite (y/n)?[n] y

If I am copying the file from the Nexus to my tftp server, then why would I be prompted to confirm whether or not I want to overwrite the .bin file located on my Nexus 5020?

Thanks,

R

Because you are doing it wrong.

You need to do "copy bootflash: tftp:" to copy from the cisco device to the tftp server.  If you wanted to copy an image from the tftp server, to the Cisco device, it would be "copy tftp: bootflash:" or just flash: in most cases.

Always remember  copy <source> <destination> .
