I have been getting the following error when I archive my configs: CM0151 VLAN RUNNING Config fetch failed. The configuraiton file is backed up fine, its just the vlan.dat file that does not work. my transport protocols are Telnet, then TFTP. I am using RME 4.1.1
To fix this you have to copy a vlan.dat file from a switch that has one on the flash. Then TFTP that vlan.dat file to the switches that do not have one. That is what fixed my problem.
Its just mainly tftp a vlan.dat file from another switch, then tftp that file to the switches that do not have one. They do not have a patch out for this yet, so this is a work around.
OK, Thanks. I am assuming by your response that ANY vlan.dat file will do? I want to make sure before I do this. I do not want to 'break' anything when I do this. Thanks again.
I found another work around. Simply create a VLAN and ust keep it shutdown. I used VLAN 2 and issed the shutdown command, resync'd the archive and voila.
The patch is certainly available, and has been given out to a number of customers. However, it is now out of date. If you have a newer version of the SharedDcmaCatIOS package, my patch will overwrite it, and could break other things. Therefore, the workaround is recommended now until LMS 3.2 comes out this summer.
I had this problem, too. I had about 250 devices Partially Collected because CW could not download the vlan.dat.
I just started a netconfig job for those devices.
The job ran the following command:
vlan 666 name CiscoBug
no vlan 666
Works fine for me =). The vlan.dat keeps on flash even if u delete the just created vlan with the "no" command.
