hp 9304m software flash issue

Having trouble now with updating the firmware on my 9304m. After locating software to update from v7.1.19 ( as discussed here: http://forums.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/questionanswer.do?threadId=1270582 ) the router now fails to upload the code during the flash process.

I've tried in both the primary and secondary areas supposing there may have been an issue in the primary block, but that has failed as well, leaving me with no software in the flash areas.

Following up from the previous thread. I've tried pushing the backup copy of v7.1.19 back on the primary block. Still getting flash error 16.

Re: hp 9304m software flash issue

On review of the session timeout from the tftp client, it seemed like a problem between client and server. So I tried 3CDaemon (v2r10) instead.

HP9304#copy tftp flash 10.12.48.8 H2R07119.bin secondary
HP9304#Flash Erase ------------------------------------------
Flash Memory Write (8192 bytes per dot) ...............................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................TFTP to Flash Done.

Not sure why Tftpd32 doesn't work, but 3cd did.

Re: hp 9304m software flash issue

Some sort of timeout issue occurs with the built-in TFTP client. I had to make adjustments to the TFTP servers I tried to get it to work correctly. Increase resets/retries and timeouts.
