erasing config

all our switches are in vtp transparent mode, do I need to issue the delete flash:vlan.dat to clear the configuration or just erase start?

Re: erasing config

You havent specified the switch models, but typically you could use the following;

erase nvram to delete all files in nvram.

erase const_nvram to delete vlan database

erase startup-config to delete startup config

If so, please rate this post.

Thanks

Yes, delete vlan.dat.

Re: erasing config

Actually, you must specify the switch because it varies.

To erase the vlan.dat file on the 6500/6000 switches, issue the erase const_nvram: command. On the 4500/4000 switches, issue the erase cat4000_flash: command. On the fixed configuration switches, issue the delete flash:vlan.dat command.

Re: erasing config

The switches in question are 3750 and 3560 so I am guessing the delete flash:vlan.dat is required.
