NVRAM verification failed

I am trying to copy the running config to the startup config but I keep getting an error that points to NVRAM.

This is what it looks like

when I issue the copy command.

CISC04-0F#copy run start

Building configuration...

nv_done: unable to open "flash.new"[OK]

NVRAM Verification Failed

I've tried to "config mem" like this:

CISC04-0F#config mem

Notice: NVRAM invalid, possibly due to write erase.

CISC04-0F#

But you can see I get an error. The NVRAM has been erased and I cannot figure out how to reinitialize it.

Thanks in advance.

The switch is a WS-C2924C-XL

Software is:

c2900XL-hs-mz-112.8.10-SA6.bin

Re: NVRAM verification failed

It appears the NVRAM has gone bad and the switch needs to be replaced. Open a TAC case if you have a contract.

Re: NVRAM verification failed

Hello,

I had a similar problem once, and the trick was to erase the nvram and then copy the running to the startup config. If that doesn't make a difference, the NVRAM probably indeed is damaged, and the box needs to be replaced. You might want to give that a try though...

Regards,

Re: NVRAM verification failed

Thanks. I did try to erase NVRAM but as you can see that fails.

CISC04-0F#write erase

nv_done: unable to open "flash.new"[OK]

CISC04-0F#

I'll look into getting a new switch.
