Cisco 2950 Switch -- IOS Error Message

By fm21496 ·
I get the following IOS error messages - from my Cisco 2950 switch - when I try to backup the IOS file to my TFTP server:

%Error parsing filename (Bad file number)

%Error opening flash: file_name (no such file or directory)

Has anyone come across this problem before? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Check the Running Configuration

Look for the following, where BootFilename is replaced by the real boot file name:

boot system flash:<BootFileName>.bin

Either remove the line completely or put the correct file name of the file located in the flash.
