Re: Problem in Upgradin Screen OS

Hi,

 

Have you tried downloading the software again to make sure that its not corupt. What are you using to extract the file before uploading it?

 

Have you tried a different version?

 

When you say it wont let you roll back, are you using tftp to try and load on the old code?

 

Regards

Hi Abdul

 

This error: The Uploaded file cannot be recognized as a valid software image file' 

means ur image is corrupted or u are loading the os with unzip it. Firt unzip the os and then upload that file it should have type zero extension. 

 

Hope this helps

Re: Problem in Upgradin Screen OS

Try upgrading to 5.0.0r1 first.  Between 4.0.1 and 5.0.0, it did require the file system to be modified, and it may have a problem going up to r10.  Try r1 first, and see if you have any better luck.  Once you are on 5.0.0r1, at least you are on the same branch of OS code.
