Cisco document:

You can use a an Execute a command script to update the IOS:

1. Place the firmware image onto a TFTP server
2. Create a script for downloading and deploying the firmware
3. Schedule a job to execute the script at the time which suits you


These scripts are not provided by SolarWinds and use them on your own risk. As Config Change Scripts are considered to be a customization, Technical Support is not creating or supporting them.
 
Please Note: While it is possible to store the .bin file in the TFTP root, it is not an NCM function to manage them.
 
Following Thwack posts will help to get the pre-configured example script:
