formating 2900 config

i couldnt find a page that told me how to do this, i wish to format the config on my flash. If you cant just format the config file i will format all of flash but someone will need to help me with that to (just to know what to do so i dont screw it up).

Links can always help if found, Thanks

Re: formating 2900 config

You didn't really specify what model. 2900 is not a model , there is 2950,2940,2970,2924xl etc..  I'll go on the assumption it is something like a 2924xl.If thats not your model then just go to the main cisco webpage and search "corrupted IOS recovery " .  The search function on the main page is your friend .You can find almost anything there.

Hi,

If you want to erase the vlan information from the flash , you can just type:

erase flash: vlan.dat

You should not format the flash.  Now the IOS is deleted and you need to download it from Cisco.com and loaded it to the switch.  You need to have a CCO account to be able to download it.
