Update Cisco Switch-Stack (2960x)

Check the filesystems

dir flash1:/
dir flash2:/
dir flash3:/

There should be enough free space on the filesystems of all switches. You can remove old software images / software folders by using the following command:

delete /force /recursive flash*:/foldername

Download the *.tar-File

via SCP
archive download-sw /leave-old-sw scp://[username]:[password]@[ip-address of scp-server]/filename


archive download-sw /leave-old-sw scp://admin:SecretPassword!@
or via TFTP
archive download-sw /leave-old-sw tftp://[ip-address of scp-server]/filename


archive download-sw /leave-old-sw tftp://

If there is not enough space to keep the old software version you can use /overwrite instead of /leave-old-sw
This will overwrite the existing software files.
