Help Me


Hi,

I am trying to upload an IOS in the cisco NAC Appliance. The IOS version has to be updated as 4.8. I am getting the below error when i tried.

File is not in gzip format
Child return status 1
Error exit delayed from previous errors.

I am using the below command to unzip the IOS file.

tar xzvf ccca_upgrade-4.8.0-from-4.6.x.tar.gz

Kindly help me to resolve this problem as Tuesday is the deadline

Thanks

Hari Prasad C.R

Hi,

First: Don't use "Help Me" as a thread title. It doesn't say anything about your actual problem and some won't even look at a thread with a title like that.

About your problem: Maybe the file isn't created using gzip. Zip could have been used.

Try unzipping the file using unzip (or uncompress), then use tar to unpack it.

$ unzip ccca_upgrade-4.8.0-from-4.6.x.tar.gz
$ tar xf ccca_upgrade-4.8.0-from-4.6.x.tar


If that does not work, please post the output of the following command: file ccca_upgrade-4.8.0-from-4.6.x.tar.gz

Hope this helps.

This is a volunteer forum. If you need **URGENT** help since you have a deadline, then you should contact Cisco, since you're paying them for support. Coming to public forums for help when you have a deadline is an enormous waste of time, since volunteers don't answer when YOU want them to, and (more often than not), will purposely ignore requests like this.

Where did you get the file? Are you sure it's not corrupted?? Are you root when you tried that command? Chances are the file isn't gzip'ed...what was the extension when you got it on the website, and did you rename it? Have you just tried to unTAR it?
