ok try this post

show boot

check the buffer size and change it and then reload the switch

(conf t)boot buffersize (number for nvram size)

then run again--- dir nvram:

looks like nvram has become corrupted , hopefully its not hardware at fault

hi

Try compress the configs in flash...service compress-config to free up space  , what space is left when your run ...dir nvram:

can anything be deleted from nvram ?

after its compressed try again , if not then you need to delete something

Hi,

thanks for your support, but when i put service compress-config on switch that time we get below error

Error- (config)#service compress-config
Boot ROMs do not support NVRAM compression.
Disabling service compress-config.

And when we put

CISCO1#dir nvram:

that time we get below mentioned output

CISCO1#dir nvram:
Directory of nvram:/

%Error opening nvram:/ (Function not implemented)

524288 bytes total (483211 bytes free)

plz tell in this case what we do....

Found this thread, but I couldn't really reboot the device (who knows how long it hasn't been saving the config), so I just ran:

erase startup-config

then

write memory

and it seemed to fix it without needing to modify the buffer size or reboot it.
Here's the log.
