Cisco Bug: CSCtd84446 - 'write erase' does not wipe out vem config
Feb 08, 2017
- Cisco Nexus 1000V Switch for VMware vSphere
Known Affected Releases
Symptom: The Nexus1000 previously has VEM connected to it, and thus has the vem configuration like the following in both the running-config and startup-config: vem 3 host vmware id 80954934-d21d-b211-8000-00237de092a2 After executing 'write erase', 'sh startup-config' indicates that the startup-config has been erased: n1kv# write erase Warning: This command will erase the startup-configuration. Do you wish to proceed anyway? (y/n) [n] y n1kv# n1kv# sh startup-config No startup configuration The N1k is rebooted after the startup-config is erased; the VSM will go through the initial system admin account setup after the reboot and allow user to login. After login on to the system, 'show running-config' and 'show startup-config' both show that the vem configuration that was supposed to have been erased was in fact not erase. 'write erase' erases all configuration except those vem related config; the command should erase all config, including the vem config. Conditions: 'write erase' with vem config.
