Catalyst 4500 send this: % String too long to write to nvram

Hi,

I have a Catalyst 4500 L3 Switch Software (cat4500e-ENTSERVICESK9-M), Version 12.2(50)SG2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc2)

cisco WS-C4503-E (MPC8548) processor (revision 6) with 524288K bytes of memory.

Processor board ID SPE122000UX

MPC8548 CPU at 1.33GHz, Supervisor 6-E

Last reset from PowerUp

22 Virtual Ethernet interfaces

52 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces

2 Ten Gigabit Ethernet interfaces

511K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

!

Configuration register is 0x2102

When I try to save any changes in the configuration sent me this message:

"4503_PRI#wr
Building configuration...

% String too long to write to nvram (2133):Compressed configuration from 33363 bytes to 11288 bytes[OK]
4503_PRI#

Can anyone help me with this?

Add more memory to the device as the IOS NVGEN enhancement feature introduced with the command "parser config cache interface" requires a lot of memory.

A short-term workaround until additional memory is installed is to disable this feature as shown below.

Router#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

Router(config)#no parser config cache interface

Router(config)#end

Router#clear parser cache

Clearing parser cache...

The workaround is a solution that  apllies for a CSCsd45386 Bug , but this bug refers to routers this Bug also applies  to Swiches 4500?
