Try disabling the captures and then delete the pcm.dat file


It should be something like -


no voice hpi capture
no voice hpi capture destination flash:pcm.dat

Hi,


Is there any solution for this? Because the router is working in live enviornment and it is very difficult to take a down time for this.


LHR-LDA-JT-DC-RTR#delete flas
LHR-LDA-JT-DC-RTR#delete flash:pcm.dat
Delete filename [pcm.dat]?
Delete flash:/pcm.dat? [confirm]
%Error deleting flash:/pcm.dat (File in use in an incompatible mode)

Hi,


How could we remove the flash when server in running condition. I also don't have a slot in PC to insert a flash. Please tell some other suggestion to resolve this issue.

Again for the hird time, you can remove the flash with the router running without any problem.


Then you get a $10 usb card reader to delete the file.
