No space remaining to save private config

I am having an issue with a cisco AIR-AP1230B-A-K9 running WDS. I am running Version 12.3(2)JA2. The no space error is posted in the log file. I also receive this error when trying to save the config.

Building configuration...

% Configuration buffer full,

%Aborting Save. Compress the config.[OK]

The results of the dir /all is...

AP1#dir all

Directory of flash:/

2 -rwx 76 Mar 2 2002 16:53:12 -05:00 private-multiple-fs

7 drwx 448 Feb 28 1993 19:13:18 -05:00 c1200-k9w7-mx.123-2.JA2

Directory of system:/

2 dr-x 0 <no date> memory

1 -rw- 33107 <no date> running-config

No space information available

Directory of nvram:/

1 -rw- 32711 <no date> startup-config

2 ---- 0 <no date> private-config

32768 bytes total (5 bytes free)

Any ideas on the cause or cure? I currently use this AP as the primary WDS and all MAC addresses are contained there.

Thanks,

T

Re: No space remaining to save private config

Looking at the output of dir /all, I think the nvram is nearly full with only 5 bytes remaining. May be that is the reason you receive this error.

I would suggest you to clean up your nvram and load the required config. But make sure that the contents of the nvram can be deleted. So, you better make a backup of your nvram.

Re: No space remaining to save private config

well my first thought was to add "service compress config" then I realised that the boot-roms in AP's don't support compressed configs. Your only real option is to reduce the config. 31K is very large for an access point.

Maybe it's time to consider using a different authentication other than mac.

Re: No space remaining to save private config

Hello

perhaps you could change then nvram with the cmd boot buffersize like you can do it with some catalyst switches. You have to reboot the ap.

I think the nvram is just a logical part of the flash.

best regards

Oliver
