Cannot store config file in Catalyst 2950

Hi,

I have a couple of Catalyst 2950 with many port-security static mac-addresess and therefore with big configuration files. I cannot save configuration becouse nvram storage is not enough. Look:Switch1#dir nvram:

Directory of nvram:/

17 -rw- 15147 <no date> startup-config

18 ---- 48 <no date> private-config

32768 bytes total (1137 bytes free)

Why is only 1137 bytes free ? 15147+48+1137 is not 32768 ! How to make more space to nvram so to be able to store my big configuration files and not to use tftp when booting ?

Re: Cannot store config file in Catalyst 2950

Hi,

I'd try to clean the nvram first using "erase nvram:" command (be careful it really cleans the nvram, so you are losing your startup config at the moment) and write the config again by "wr mem".

If the nvram is still not big enough, there is a "boot buffersize" config command.

See http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat2950/12114ea1/2950cr/cli1.htm#3060193

The documentattion says it's available only on 2950-LRE, but I've found it on my 2950.

I've not tested it yet, my 2950 is in the production network.

Regards,

Milan
