Not enough nvram memory in AP

Unanswered Question
Jun 19th, 2010

I encounter one issue in AP. Not sure why the directory of nvram does not have any file and cannot write memory to the AP.


%No memory available
%No memory availablestartup-config file open failed (Not enough space)

AP#dir nvram:

%No memory available
Directory of nvram:/

%No memory available
%Error calling getdents for nvram:/ (Unknown error 89)

I have this problem too.

There is configuration in the startup. However, once i reload the AP the configuration will be lost.

Not sure why cannot save the configuration in the AP

The routers NVRAM might be faulty and if so you need an RMA and that is a issue that must be solved through TAC.

You can try the following first. Just press enter to confirm:

ROUTER#write erase

Erasing the nvram filesystem will remove all configuration files! Continue? [confirm]


Erase of nvram: complete

ROUTER#write memory

Building configuration...



Above you see how the router should respond.
