When issuing the write command on Cisco 2950 switch i receive the following message:

% Warning: Saving this config to nvram may corrupt any network management or security files stored at the end of nvram. Continue? [no]:

% Configuration buffer full, can't add command:tacacs-server host {ip address} %Aborting Save. Compress the config.[OK]

I haven't selected yes on the above as unsure of the cnsequences.

The Cisco 2950 switch is running with version:


Version 12.1(19)EA1a

Seems like you are running out of nvram memory on this switch. You can use ' service compress-config' command in global config mode to compress existing config. This can free up space for new configuration command.
