Dear EE,

We have a IBM Bladecenter with integrated Nortel switch.
The problem is I am not able to change anything on the switch because I am getting the following errors:


>> azimov-in - Main# diff
Diff is issued by another user. Try later.

>> azimov-in - Main# revert
Confirm reverting unapplied changes [y/n]: y
Diff is issued by another user. Try later.

Open in new window



Bladecenter is on the remote location. I think one reload will solve problem but what if I can't boot a switch?

Can you help me to remove these errors or what is the best option for me. Let me mention that no one at this location

Also, we are looking for someone who wants to take responsibility and install new IOS and reload a switch.

Best,
