Using NCM to load Cisco router IOS using tftp

Jump to solution

I have looked and tried everything I can think of.    I am trying to use Config Manager Jobs to load an IOS to a router.

I can get the "copy tftp flash" command to execute but Solarwinds disconnects before the IOS has loaded which kills the TFTP transfer.  I have a couple hundered Cisco881/867 routers I need to update IOS on.

I have tried putting a $Delay: 300 command in but it isn't working.   I have looked at what is going on on a network analyzer and Solarwinds disconnects once all the commands have been entered.

Here is the output from the Job:

IOS-Load-testing (IP address of router):

  --------------

  copy tftp flash

  --------------

 

  --------------

  172.17.255.6

  --------------

  Address or name of remote host []?

  --------------

  c880(Cisco IOS Filename)

  --------------

  Source filename []?

  --------------

  c880(Cisco IOS Filename)

  --------------

  Destination filename []?

  Accessing tftp://172.17.255.6/c880(Cisco IOS Filename)...

  --------------

  $delay: 300

  --------------

 

  --------------

  config t

  --------------

 

  --------------

  no boot system

  --------------

 

  --------------

  boot system flash:c880(Cisco IOS Filename)

  --------------

 

  --------------

  exit

  --------------

  Execution time : 42 seconds

Try modifying the timeout setting in NCM and see if that helps.

Settings (All Settings) > NCM Settings > Protocol Settings
