Device or resource busy error message on AP1100

After a "copy tftp running-config" command an AP1100 was printing an error message and did not apply the commands in the downloaded file into the running config of the AP:

228004224752-1_4#copy tftp://172.28.27.248/test/fixedIP-10.0.64.1.cfg.25164 running-config

Destination filename [running-config]?

Accessing tftp://172.28.27.248/test/fixedIP-10.0.64.1.cfg.25164...

Loading test/fixedIP-10.0.64.1.cfg.25164 from 172.28.27.248 (via BVI1): !

[OK - 91 bytes]

%Error opening system:/running-config (Device or resource busy)

228004224752-1_4#

The AP runs on IOS 12.2.13JA4. The downloaded file contained:

interface BVI 1

ip address 10.0.64.1 255.255.255.248

exit

ip default-gateway 10.0.64.6

end

The idea of the tftp download was to modify the AP from DHCP to a fixed IP address.

What does this error message mean?

The running configuration is locked; so that the copy command cannot access running configuration. Please make sure that there is no other telnet session in configuration mode. Also, there is no HTTP session configuring the AP.

I use a similar command "copy ftp run" on an AP with 12.3(2)JA. It works fine for me.

Yes, thanks! The problem was a previous tftp download running at AP startup.

The downloaded file contained a command which was waiting for user response and the AP seemed to be still in config mode.

After modifying the command the subsequent tftp download worked fine.
