Brocade Switch: "TFTP to Flash Error - code 5"

If you see this message, just run the tftp command again.  I have no idea why the "TFTP to Flash Error - code 5" happens.  I have no reason and no solution, except just run it again.  It will work the second time if this happens.

ICX6610-48 Switch#copy tftp flash 10.10.10.1 grz07302.bin boot
ICX6610-48 Switch#Load to buffer (8192 bytes per dot)
...................Write to boot flash......................................
TFTP to Flash Error - code 5
ICX6610-48 Switch#copy tftp flash 10.10.10.1 grz07302.bin boot
ICX6610-48 Switch#Load to buffer (8192 bytes per dot)
.....................Write to boot flash.........................................
TFTP to Flash Done.

  1. I have had this happen on multiple occasions and disabling the windows firewall fixes the problem.
