Error Copying File:Error code 2: Could not open requested file for reading

Hi Guys,

 

I am trying to copy a flashbackup file back into my controller from the ftp server but was given this error.

Error Copying File:Error code 2: Could not open requested file for reading.

 

May i know what this error is about and how i can resolve it ?

I am currently running 6.4.3.6 for 72xx

What syntax are you using to copy?  Did you try the GUI to copy, instead?

Hey, i have used both GUI and CLI. Both methods threw the same error code

What syntax are you using and is the file you are copying at the top level of the FTP server?

Re: Error Copying File:Error code 2: Could not open requested file for reading

s it possible for yo to try uploading file to TFTP server & then importing it on controller.

 

Aruba# copy tftp <ip-address of tftp server> <name of file > flash: flashbackup.tar.gz.

 

I beleive we can not copy file to flash using FTP.

 

We can use TFTP or SCP server for the same.

 

copy tftp: <tftphost> <srcfilename> flash: flashbackup.tar.gz
copy scp: <scphost> <username> <srcfilename> flash: flashbackup.tar.gz

 

FTP only allowd you to copy a file to a partition & not to flash.

 

Eg:

 

FTP:

 

(Primary) #copy ftp: 1.1.1.1 admin flashbackup ?
system: System Partition

 

TFTP:

 

(Primary) #copy tftp: 1.1.1.1 flashbackup ?
flash: Copy to the flash file system
system: System Partition

I verified it from the Web GUi & we have an option to import file using FTP via Web GUI.
