Working on a C4948-10g switch. Trying to reset switch to factory settings. I have ran the Switch#>wr erase, command but the vlan's are still in the config. If you do a show vlan it still shows all the vlan text. I have tried the Switch#>delete vlan.dat, doesn't work. Tried Switch#>delete nvram:vlan.dat, doesn't work. Tried Switch#>erase startup-config, doesn't work. How can I get rid of the vlan's?

Hi Scott,


Just to confirm, command which you did is:


erase cat4000_flash:vlan.dat ??


If No, please run the above mention command.

That didn't work either. I should be able to do this command under Switch#erase cat4000_flash:vlan.dat


Any other ideas?

Hello Scott,


Vlan.dat file only get removed from the swich when it gets reloaded, all the VLANs that were available on the switch are lost.


I hope that clear ot your query why after deleting the vlan.dat fle it was still showing unless it is rebooted.


Hope to Help !!
