The operation would generate a file too large for the space available in the system's
There are two likely resolutions to this issue:
- If the "[code]all[/code]" option is being used ('[code]show config all outfile configs/[/code]<[code]filename[/code]>[code].cfg[/code]'), omit that parameter. The "[code]all[/code]" and "[code]outfile[/code]" options when used together can generate a very large file, especially on systems - such as stacks - with a high port count. For this reason the "[code]all[/code]" and "[code]outfile[/code]" options are not supported together (Functions as Designed - FAD), though the operation may under ideal circumstances complete without error. Use the '[code]show system utilization storage[/code]' command to view the utilization for "[code]Flash Images, Config, Other[/code]" files, then use the '[code]dir[/code]' command to view the files stored in the [code]configs[/code] directory, then delete any extra/unneeded configuration files ('[code]delete configs/[/code]<[code]filename[/code]>[code].cfg[/code]'). Repeat as desired.
