When you are really getting "Permission denied", it is likely that the switch has its default privilege levels modified in the configuration. In that case, either default the switch or consult it's administrator.

Re: Permission denied in switch prompt

Mahmood,

It looks like your switch is missing an image file required for the bootup process.

Please take a look at the following link for procedures describing how to recover from a

missing image:
