Another Rucku 7150 initialization help

New Contributor

Hello I recently purchased a home and found a Ruckus switch with two ruckus unleashed devices mounted throughout the home. I cant seem to get in contact with anyone to help set up the device and the original homeowner never set it up. 

I tried using Putty to activate the device but the commands i found online were not working so i went to update the firmware, i now cant seem to get the TFTPD server to upload the correct firmware even though its for the device. 

im using copy tftp flash [IP ADDRESS] [filename:icx7xxx_poe_02.1.8.b004.fw] primary

but it keeps giving me this error: MySwitch#The code type 0 is not correct for the target hardware, abort!
File Type Check Failed

here is my current version:
