I am attempting to upload the newest firmware to a bunch of our HP 2910al 48g switches. But I have been unsuccessful . I've tried TFTP via the command line but I get an error showing 0 bytes were uploaded. The log file on the TFTP server never even showed any login attempts , it simply gave me an instant error.
I also tried uploading using our Procurve manager software but The Procurve manager gives an error stating TFTP is not enabled on the switch.
So my two questions are:
1) should I use something other than TFTP ?
2) if TFTP is still a valid option for my local network, how do I "enable" it on the switch?
