My Customer couldn't save sanswitch configuration. It is a MDS 9140 multilayer switch.

Error messages occurred:

SW1SU# copy running-config startup-config

2008 Oct 10 13:22:45 SW1SU %ZONE-2-ZS_INIT_FAILED: Failed to save persistent configuration

2008 Oct 10 13:22:45 SW1SU %ZONE-2-ZS_INIT_FAILED: pss_create failure, code = 0x8048001e, URL=sync:/mnt/pss/zone_zs_active_zset_cfg

2008 Oct 10 13:22:45 SW1SU %SYSMGR-2-CFGWRITE_ABORTED: Configuration copy aborted.Configuration update aborted: request was aborted

SAN-OS version is 3.2(2c).

Any ideas of this issue ?

Should it be a CF module failure ?

Best Regards,

I found the post "Cannot save the configuration after zone changing." reporting the same issue.

For my understanding this bug was not solved and we need to reload the switch, otherwise if problem persist, we will need to replace compactflash.

Please, let me know if there is something new about it.

Thanks in advance and Kind regards,

Sounds like a known problem that was fixed in 3.3(1) and above.
