Aha! This brings back some

Aha! This brings back some memories, yes we had this same issue a fair while back

Some RF switches would take the upgrade OK, and others would give the error you quote "Error -369: Invalid File Format"

If memory serves me correctly, it happens because there are 2 x different ethernet cards for these devices, and that file doesn't suit them both

One card is 10baseT only, the other is 10/100baseT (you can see the card type via "show ver")

I think the file you quote above works for the older 10baseT model, but the 10/100baseT requires a newer file

The cisco documentation around this topic is pretty hopeless/confusing, and I remember we had troubles trying to download the various files from cisco

But I reckon it was 1935001301a (V400r3A) for the 10baseT cards, and 1935001302a_rc3 (V4.00rc3B) for the 10/100baseT cards

Hope that helps!
