How to use SCP to transfer NX-OS image to Cisco Nexus 7K device.
Posted on 2015-02-17
I tried TFTP and it kept timing out on the image file, the kickstart image transferred successfully, but was on 35mb where the system image file is 435mb. I wanted to try SCP, but can’t find any examples of how to use it for transferring a Cisco Nexus image.
Does the SCP work like TFTP in that I would start a SCP server and then place the files in the SCP directory and then do a
copy scp://xxx.xxx.15.110/n7000-s2-dk188.8.131.52.bin bootflash:
Where xxx.xxx.15.110 would be the ip of the SCP server? I have turned on the SCP feature on the Nexus 7K device. I have securefx which supposedly works using SCP, but I have not been able to figure out how to use it for SCP.
I have looked a documentation from Cisco for using a SCP server, but still can't figure it out.
