Error updating user-locale to US

Using CME 3.3. 
Cisco IOS Software, 2600 Software (C2691-IPVOICEK9-M), Version 12.4(25d)

Attempting to update user-locale on 7912 phone via telephony-service command and get error of 

cme_router(config-telephony)#user-locale US
Updating CNF files

%Error deleting flash:SEPDEFAULT.cnf (No such file or directory)
%Error deleting flash:XMLDefault.cnf.xml (No such file or directory)CNF files update complete



I do a cd flash: and run dir.

Shows other files her but not 2 files mentioned above. 

However it does show XMLDefault7912.cnf.xml with 786 bytes and crashinfo_20020301-022926 with 198274 bytes

crashinfo_20020301-022926 is full of entries with each entry having a date of 10:00:42 GMT Fri Mar 1 2002 (which is the date the router was before I updated via clock set command)


Any ideas are appreciated

As you can see. There is no file called SEPDEFAULT.cnf under this location. Unless its hidden or some other reason.

BTW. I have tried to update routers clock setting by below method to no success. Each time I turn router off/on, it goes back to year 2002

Step1: Router#config t
Step2: Router(config)#clock timezone PST -8 00
Step3: Router(config)#end
Step4: Router#clock set 00:36:00 16 Nov 2013
Step5: Router#sh clock detail
00:36:24.083 PST Sat Nov 16 2013
Time source is user configuration
Step6: Router#clock update
Step7: Router#copy run start

Hey John,

IOS version is 12.4(25d

IOS version is 12.4(25d)

According to the matrix. Their versions are 12.4(24)T

so I guess I cant update the user-locale

With the other issue of the internal clock, I can't even save that to the startup-config file.

When router boots up, where

When router boots up, where does it get its clock time from. NTP server or clock calendar please?

Depends on how you configure

Depends on how you configure the device. NTP has prioritiy over the internal clock. If you have an NTP server configured the router will syncronize with it.

Can you attach the ouput of the following commands as a txt. file?

 - show flash:

 - show running-config

 - show startup-config (just in case)

 - show clock 

 - show calendar

Waiting for your answers.

Purpose of the static routes was to enable the cisco router ( to see the default router ( to see the switch ( for each to ping each other. So that when phone gets ip address i can ping them
