To get SDM work, my action plan will be the following:

  1. Check requirements.
  2. Download latest SDM.
  3. Delete old / unnecessary SDM files from flash.
  4. Upload new ones via TFTP.
  5. Configure router for SDM.

1) Requirements

Cisco Routers and Cisco IOS Versions Supported & Memory Requirements & PC System Requirements & Web Browser Versions and Java Runtime Environment Versions

2) Download software

The link from where you can download the latest SDM software, SDM-V234.zip:

3) Managing your flash

After download, just delete the following files from the flash of the router:

sdmconfig-180x.cfg
sdm.tar
es.tar
common.tar
home.shtml
home.tar
128MB.sdf
wlanui.tar

For example:

Router# delete flash:sdmconfig-180x.cfg

SDM Files explanations can you find in the Release Notes:

4) Copy files to flash

After deleting, unzip SDM-V234.zip and copy the new required files to the flash from the TFTP server:

sdmconfig-180x.cfg
sdm.tar
common.tar
home.shtml
home.tar
128MB.sdf

For example:

Router(config)#copy tftp flash:
