Hi Ali,

Can you please issue a command "dir cat4000_flash:" and confirm me if you only see vlan.dat file there?

If you see only vlan.dat file issue a command ""erase cat4000_flash:"

I believe there is nothing other than 'vlan.dat' file in cat4000_flash:, so that will take care of it. You may need to reload the switch to see the vlans disappear.

Hi Ali

What is the exact command you are typing in ?

Can you also post output of "dir" command on 4500.

Thanks

Jon

but why the command delete 4000catbootflash:vlan.dat doesn't work?

Hi Ali,

The command "delete 4000catbootflash:vlan.dat" is a wrong command and there is no location like "4000catbootflash".

VLAN.dat on 4500 switches are stored in seperate location which is cat4000_flash so to delete this file you have to give exact location where file is stored.
