pull os

Used to pull operating system files from network devices. The files are compared to the versions previously stored. If the content is different, the version stored as current is moved to previous, overwriting the existing previous version, and the new file is stored as current.

The pull process will retry several times if it does not successfully retrieve the file. The file transfer protocol and number of retries are options that default to the best settings for the device; these can be overridden using the config settings command. File transfer may be configured as console, TFTP, FTP or XModem.
