    Hi,

    Can anyone help me to solve ap1200 ios upgrade program

    I have a Ap1200 which is running IOS 12.2.13 before. I tried to upload
    the latest IOS but via CLI. it's failed to complete and it deleted the
    existing ios as well. However I tried to upload the ios via TFTP. but
    it return following error and did not finish it. Can anyone help me how
    to fix it ?

    (ap1200)archive download-sw tftp://x.x.x.x/c1200xxxxx

    failed to open the archive file (not exactly wording)

    Based on sh ver, my AP is running IOS, there's no need to convert the
    ios. If I reboot the device now but flash does not contain IOS, how can
    I restore the IOS ?


    Thanks,

    The IOS of the AP1100/AP1200 is in tar format.
    Have you downloaded the tar in binary mode and verified it's checksum?

    Don't reboot without an IOS in flash, or you'll need console access for
    tftp download from the IOS bootloader.

    The archive file is downloaded in binary mode and I'm able to see the
    archive file content. the download progress could start perfectly in
    the beginning, however, the error message appeared when it reached
    70-80%. Do you think the problem is related to the IOS itself ?

    It's described in the docs:
    "http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/airo1100/accsspts/i12215ja/i12215sc/s15trb.pdf"

    Depends upon the actual state of your AP.

    If IOS is up and running and you can ping your tftp server:

    "archive download-sw /overwrite /force-reload
    tftp://10.10.2.2/c1200/c1200-k9w7-tar.122-15.XR2.tar"

    if your tftp server listens on 10.10.2.2 and the tar resides in the
    directory /c1200 of the tftp root and 12.2(15)XR2 image.

    You'll need the /overwrite parameter because there isn't enough room in
    flash to hold 2 versions in parallel.
    When you told the upgrade ran till 80% my first guess was: flash is full.

    You can do an "erase flash:" and then a "copy running-config
    startup-config" before the tftp download.
    If your tftp server is broken, you can download the tar from a http
    server too.

    If there is no valid IOS image in flash, you'll need to set some
    variables in ROMMON. This rescue procedure is described step-by-step in
    the 1200 Configuration Guide. Don't know by heart, did this once or
    twice more than a year ago and dont't want to reboot one of my APs ;-).

    After I setup another tftp server, it works.
