Downloading to Switch.................................................Error: Failed to download image - tftp: write error


 

Environment
  • EXOS 15.6.1.4+
  • X480
Cause

Due to additional functionality and new platforms supported, the ExtremeXOS 15.6 software image became too large to fit in memory on all Summit model switches. To resolve this issue, the Summit X480 series switches now have a separate image that does not include diagnostics.  Please also download and install the diagnostics xmod for the X480 as part of your upgrade process.

Resolution

Starting from EXOS 15.6 series, the X480 switches have separate xos image. The correct file format for the X480 switches is summitX480-15.6.3.1.xos.
