Answered Question
Jan 31st, 2009

<p>This 3560 just started doing this to me, when I make a change and I issue wither "wr" or "wr m":</p>

<p>Building configuration...

<br />

 <br />

Error writing new config file "flash:/config.text.new"

<br />

Error writing new config file "flash:/private-config.text.new"[OK]</p>

<p>Verison:  Version 12.2(25)SEB4</p>

<p>Dir of Flash:</p>

<p>Directory of flash:/

<br />

  360  -rwx     1797632   Jan 8 2009 09:51:28 -05:00  ftp

<br />

 <br />

15998976 bytes total (512 bytes free)</p>

<p>Not sure what the tftp and ftp is all about, I need to log back in and look at other 3560s and see if that is normal.  I was actually trying to prune a VLAN when this happened, so I will start a new thread with THAT issue!</p>

<p>Thanks!</p>

I have this problem too.

  Its trying to write the config file to flash   but you have no space left in flash to write anything .     Somebody tried to save to a tftp and ftp server but instead ended up  writing it to flash  for some reason .  You should be able to get rid of those  and free up about 9 meg worth of flash.
