    Default Upgrade Flash

    I have a general question to see if anyone has tried this. I have a Cisco 1841 ISR router with the image "c1841-ipbase-mz.124-1c.bin". It is on a 32MB card and there is no room to upgrade the Flash to "c1841-advipservicesk9-mz.124-22.T1.bin" which is 35.5MB by itself with out the config file and some of the other files ie .tar, .shtml. Now to get the Fresh 64MB card to work since there are NO files on it, can I just copy and paste the files from the 32MB card and Paste them on the 64MB card? I have a Compact flash card reader and seems like an easy solution. Then I can just boot the router then use my TFTP server and replace the old "c1841-ipbase-mz.124-1c.bin" with the new "c1841-advipservicesk9-mz.124-22.T1.bin" and just erase the old and overwrite it. I have a few days before the Cards show up and planning ahead. Any thoughts?

    Why not copy the new image on to the card via the reader - and replace the card?

    HTH.

    I wasnt sure if it would be that easy and the router will just automagically read the new image. That was my initial thought was to plug the 32MB card in the reader and copy and paste everything except the bin file on the new Card. Then copy and paste the new bin file in and call it a day. Almost too easy if thats the case. Thank you for the response.

    Indeed it is!

    I bought new 128MB cards and copied the image off my PC to the new flash card.

    I just finished one 1841 with the new Advanced security and it worked like a charm. Its one of those things in the IT Bussiness that makes you scratch your head saying "no way is it that easy as copy and paste" but it was. I'm glad I kept that old compact flash to usb adapter. Our Graphics dept had it and a 64MB card from an old SLR camera.
