Please let me know if someone has faced this problem or any suggestion on this. today is the 2nd time i have faced this problem , last time I cud not solve it and end up wasting 6 hours...

I had this issue with CCME v8.8.

In order to enable GUI on CME 8.8, please add the following IOS commands into the router:



Router#configure terminal

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.


Router(config)#file privilege 0
