Running IOS (tm) C3500XL Software (C3500XL-C3H2S-M), Version 11.2(8.5)SA6, MAINTENANCE I.
I followed the TAC procedure for the platform "power on while holding the mode button...release after light on port 1 goes out. When I try to delete or rename the config.text file it comes back with "access denied" or "unknown command". I typed a "?" and type the command as listed (this ain't my first recovery) - same result (see above). The switch is otherwise operating normally (all ports in use). I just cannot manage it remotely (telnet). It won't allow or respond to any commands in the list other than "dir flash:". What can I do to blow it away so that I can load a fresh image and config?
Thanks in advance for any guidance.
