NV RAM problem


Unfortunately one of my 871 have a problem with configuration.

I can get to him only by AUX.

It runs only with default configuration.

When I want to copy my config to startup i received information:

NV: InvalidPointer value(1884) in privateconfiguration structure

%sys-4-nv_Block_initfall: Unable to initialize the geometry of nvram

Re: NV RAM problem

Hi,

i found a similar Bug CSCtg46773. Please try the workaround:-

++++++++++++++

'write erase' 
'copy run start' 

+++++++++++++

Bug details:-

Errors:
 NV: Invalid Pointer value(6128) in private configuration structure 
 %SYS-4-NV_BLOCK_INITFAIL: Unable to initialize the geometry of nvram

Conditions:

If the running-config and startup-config were noticed to be not the same size (dir all) and the 
unit was rebooted several times during the flash boot process, the router would prompt for the 
startup script and the NVRAM would be corrupted. At that point there would be no startup-config. 

Workaround:

write erase is a workaround

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

thanks,

Vinay
