HP-UX 11i - Ignite-UX: tftp Transfer Timed Out During Ignite Restore

Issue

When trying to restore a Itanium Client with an archive image from Ignite-UX server the ignite-UX recovery process fails with the below errors messages:


* Reading configuration information from server...
* tftp error log follows:
tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> Transfer timed out.
...
NOTE: Retrying loadfile command...

* tftp error log follows:
tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> tftp> Transfer timed out.

Solution

There can be many reasons for the tftp transfer time out.

In this case, the issue was that the Auto Negotiation was not enabled on the switch side and the card has by default auto negotiation set to on.

After enabling the Auto Negotiation on the switch port, the tftp time out issue was fixed.
