How to get code onto the APIC when the GUI upload fails

The following process worked when the GUI upload via http or scp failed for the 3.8GB APIC ISO file.

If SCP fails (or stalls), what you can do is use a program like Filezilla to connect to the APIC as admin and upload the image directly.

Once the image is in the admin’s home directory, you need to issue the command “firmware add <image_name>”. This adds the file to the firmware repository and should be seen in the GUI as well.
