VLAN Database problems on 3825 w/ NM-16ESW

Unanswered Question

We have a 3825 ISR with a NM-16ESW etherswitch module.  When attempting to create vlans or modify vtp operations we get the following error:

%  not enough space on flash to store vlan database.  trying squeeze...

%  error squeezing flash - (operation not supported on this file)

Error on database apply 40: NV storage failure

I have experienced these errors plenty in the past with Dynamips using 3745's and the same network module.  Usually I have re-formated the flash and the problem was resolved.  Re-formanting the flash in this situation has not helped, nor has changing the default location for the vlan.dat file.  Please see the "show diag", "show version", and "dir flash:" output in the attached file for system specifics.

All help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks to everyone that will take the time to read through this message.

I have this problem too.

After formatting your flash, did you also squeeze it?

Also this happens only when you have the NM-16ESW etherswitch module installed?

I see you have planty space in your flash.

If squeezing does not help and this happens regardless of the NM-16ESW card then you may have a bad flash card.
