How to store VTP file (vlan.dat) to slot0: if flahs: is dead?

Hello!

I've got a remote Cisco 3725+NM-16ESW with dead CF in flash:. I've send CF with IOS and local IT-man had inserted it into slot0:.

Now I try to save vlan.dat file to slot0: location, but I've got following error:

router(config)#vtp file slot0:vlan.dat

% not enough space on flash to store vlan database. trying squeeze...

% error squeezing flash - (No device available)

Operation failed; File system error --

No device available

Of course, there is enough space on CF in slot0: and it is type-3 formated. And that command works fine if CF in flash: is alive.

I suppose, that router tries to read or write CF in flash: before write file into CF in slot0:.

So, there is no way to remove faulty CF from flash:, how can I implement vlans?

Thanks :-)

It's a pity, but it's not exactly that issue (I'm talking about inability to save vlan.dat to working flash while there is faulty flash inserted).

Hi,

try the 'show slot0: filesys' and 'show slot0:' to check the card.

Also here is a link that tell how to remove the faulty internal CF.
