Hi everyone,

I have a strange problem that I'm not able to upgrade my WLC-4404 wireless
lan controller:

<telnet_snip>
(Cisco Controller) >transfer download start

Mode............................................. TFTP
Data Type........................................ Code
TFTP Server IP................................... 192.168.0.100
TFTP Packet Timeout.............................. 6
TFTP Max Retries................................. 10
TFTP Path........................................ /
TFTP Filename....................................
AIR-WLC4400-K9-4-1-185-0.aes

This may take some time.
Are you sure you want to start? (y/N) y

TFTP Code transfer starting.

TFTP receive complete... extracting components.
Unable to write file </mnt/images/bzImage.pri>: No space left on device

TFTP Failure while storing in flash!

</telnet_snip>

Of course I am using a tftp-server that has support for larger files than
32MB (TFTP32). Obviously the transfer is ok, but there seems to be not
enough flash space.

What can I do to get "more free space" on my device? Or to be more specific,
how can I get rid of the backup-firmware stored in flash? Is there a chance
to have a look at the mountpoint and delete files manually?

Thanks in advance
Rainer

Why are you not doing it thru the gui? It will automatically buffer the
image, delete the appropriate files and also upgrade all the appropriate
files including the html images?

I'm connected via serial console because I want to see what is going on
during the update. Upgrading a productive controller with 50+ APs is not a
thing I want to do via web. Anyway upgrading via console or web should have
the same result, shouldn't it?
