Automatic software download from a TFTP server

The auto-tftp command lets you configure the switch to download software automatically from a TFTP server.

At switch startup, the auto-TFTP feature automatically downloads a specified software image to the switch from a specified TFTP server and then reboots the switch. To implement the process, you must first reboot the switch using one of the following methods:

  • Enter the boot system flash primary command in the CLI.

  • With the default flash boot image set to primary flash (the default), enter the boot or the reload command, or use the reset button on the switch. (To reset the boot image to primary flash, use boot set-default flash primary.)
