Flash error -2801

Hello,

I seem to be getting this error message everytime I reload the router.

amd_flash_cmd(): timeout on erase sector command

environment write to NVRAM failed

I deleted a file from flash sslclient, and since then it's been happening.

Any advice? Thank you

Seems an hardware fault on the NVRAM (not flash), please contact the TAC for a possible replacement.

Re: Flash error -2801

I tend to agree with P, but you should also check to see what happens when you use a different flash card and try different DRAM. Whacked out DRAM causes all sorts of issues.

Thanks guys! I have opened a case with TAC. Wait and see I guess.

This is the command I can't seem to get rid of even if I do a wr er.

!

webvpn cef

!

As I started to configure Webvpn. That does explain the failure writing to nvram.

Hi,

that is just a coincidence. Supposedly, no matter what commands you enter or remove, you cannot damage hardware.

We have been experiencing this error on ISR routers running version 12.4(15)T1. We opened a case with TAC and it appears to be a cosmetic bug. We were pointed to bugID CSCsh01864 which describes the symptoms and indicates that a fix is available in 12.4(17)T.

Hi,

I get the exact error message at end of boot, after upgrading a 2801 from 12.4(5) to 12.4(15)T1

amd_flash_cmd(): timeout on erase sector command

environment write to NVRAM failed

did you get a reply?

Re: Flash error -2801

The case that we opened with TAC gave a bug ID indicating that it was a software issue - which is confirmed if you go back to an earlier version of code. It is not a hardware issue or an issue with the flash card.

We are waiting for release of a version of code which fixes this.
