Have you tried telekinesis, laying on of hands?

What have you done? What messages are you getting?
What documents are you using for guidance?

Please post, full sh ver, the exact file name of the proposed
upgrade, anything else that you might think useful.

"What have you done? What messages are you getting?

Have you read the documents that I sent? I won't be
re-typing it all here.

Is there enough space in the flash.

Best post sh flash - if that's the exact command for the
3825 - I think it is.

OK. Well you have enough DRAM and hopefully just
enough flash. 128M flash is recommended but it looks
as if the image will fit as long as there is nothing else
there. Of course:(  you truncated the sh flash output
so I cannot see what else there is:) You might even
have room for a crashdump.

Image is 60303612 bytes. You won't be able to have
any of the web based config tools installed.

By the way the "T" train images are for the latest greatest
hardware support and features. Best to use mainline (no T)
unless there are features that you know you need.

12.4T will (probably) become 12.5 in due course. Once
they call it 12.5 no new features are added and all changes
are bug fixes. So 12.4 has had 24 bug fix releases
and 12.4T has had 24 new features releases (and of
course the bug fixes too). The T train is therefore more likely
to be less stable.
