I upgradede a 3640 to new IOS c3640-is-mz.120-27.bin and supprising enough i can no longer see anything when i do "show running-config" but can see the start config.

I have recircled the box and that does not help. I checked the log and found out stuffs like no memory as below:

Process= "TTY Background", ipl= 0, pid= 49

-Traceback= 60269824 6026AC18 60284F38 6027D3A4 601EC6DC 601ECDF8 601FF274 601FF

690 601FFEB8 60200068 60216C40 60264BE4 60264BD0

.Aug 21 08:21:09 EDT: %SYS-2-CFORKMEM: Process creation of Exec failed (no memor


-Process= "TTY Background", ipl= 0, pid= 49

-Traceback= 60284FA0 6027D3A4 601EC6DC 601ECDF8 601FF274 601FF690 601FFEB8 60200

068 60216C40 60264BE4 60264BD0

The box has 24576K/8192K bytes of memory.

it might be router memory lack.

The output from error message decoder:

"1. %SYS-2-CFORKMEM: Process creation of [chars] failed (no memory). Insufficient memory was available to create a process either while trying to support additional features or because of a memory leak.

Recommended Action: A memory leak may be the cause if the system has been running for a while without changing its configuration. If you suspect a leak, copy this message exactly as it appears on the console or in the system log and report it to your Cisco te chnical support representative. Otherwise, ensure that more memory is available to support the additional features."

Software Advisor says that c3640-is-mz.120-27.bin requires 32MB of DRAM.
