    Hi everyone,

    I have a strange problem that I'm not able to upgrade my WLC-4404 wireless
    lan controller:

    <telnet_snip>
    (Cisco Controller) >transfer download start

    Mode............................................. TFTP
    Data Type........................................ Code
    TFTP Server IP................................... 192.168.0.100
    TFTP Packet Timeout.............................. 6
    TFTP Max Retries................................. 10
    TFTP Path........................................ /
    TFTP Filename....................................
    AIR-WLC4400-K9-4-1-185-0.aes

    This may take some time.
    Are you sure you want to start? (y/N) y

    TFTP Code transfer starting.

    TFTP receive complete... extracting components.
    Unable to write file </mnt/images/bzImage.pri>: No space left on device

    TFTP Failure while storing in flash!

    </telnet_snip>

    Of course I am using a tftp-server that has support for larger files than
    32MB (TFTP32). Obviously the transfer is ok, but there seems to be not
    enough flash space.

    What can I do to get "more free space" on my device? Or to be more specific,
    how can I get rid of the backup-firmware stored in flash? Is there a chance
    to have a look at the mountpoint and delete files manually?

    Thanks in advance
    Rainer

    Why are you not doing it thru the gui? It will automatically buffer the
    image, delete the appropriate files and also upgrade all the appropriate
    files including the html images?

    I'm connected via serial console because I want to see what is going on
    during the update. Upgrading a productive controller with 50+ APs is not a
    thing I want to do via web. Anyway upgrading via console or web should have
    the same result, shouldn't it?
