Senthil,


The flash error you're getting is a physical

problem on the Flash itself.


Try formatting the flash " format flash:" and then try initializing the flash using


flash_init

load-helper


If that works then you are good to go, Otherwiese go ahead and get an RMA for the 3560 switch as it has a bad flash hardware.


HTH,Please rate if it does.
