Remember NXOS is wrapper around the unixOS so things like a SCP server are available as a feature.
1st step feature enable scp-server for the NXOS
2nd step, use your favorite scope client and copy the images to the targets
scp ./*images* email@example.com:
3rd you can even script this process with ease.
ssh kfelix:firstname.lastname@example.org "config ; feature scp-server "
scp "images*" kfelix:email@example.com:
you can use passwords ssh logins on nxos and with another AAA setup configured. The shekel will be used for the authentication process
config ; username kfelix ; username kfelix sshkey ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQC1f9FUinkkkjhftdjrdktg;lthjsyybu;s djky drsd
Do any of the above will eliminate the need for stroking a local ftp/tftp/ssh-server and allows any scp-client to upgrade nxos switches with ease.
