Upgrading ICX7450 by using SCP to copy *to* switch

I struggled earlier this week to upgrade an ICX7450 from 9.0 to 9.0.1c and one of the things that I tried, but did not work, was to use an scp client to copy the file *to* the switch.  For example,

scp SPR09010cufi.bin username@172.16.1.1:flash:sec:SPR9010cufi.bin

It's described here, too: https://docs.commscope.com/bundle/fastiron-08095-upgradeguide/page/GUID-C276A95F-9988-49A2-8159-9F18...

The file copies over ... but that it did was to create file in /home/username.

In lieu of the method described above, is there a spot to drop the file into the ICX where it will then be recognized as the primary or secondary?

Engineering confirmed SCP is now only allowed from FastIron CLI. External push has been blocked.

Hey @frnkblk 

Did you try from FI CLI? It would be something like this:

copy scp flash <scp-serv-ip> SPR9010cufi.bin <primary/secondary>

*enter creds

I will give the SCP push option a shot in the lab. I have not done this on 9.x yet myself.

Yes, the "pull" option you described worked once I opened up our SSH/SCP server to accept connections from our router IP. 😀

Please share what you find out about the SCP push option -- thanks for being willing to try that in the lab.

Looks like a bug to me. I have gone ahead and filed a defect for it. Looks like scp push is working in 8095g, but failing in 9010c.

Thanks for replicating the issue and filing that defect.
