I have a Catalyst 4500 switch that I have setup with kron for backups and now when I attempt to do a "sh run" command I get the error - "Unable to get configuration. Try again later."
Searching for this error I have found a link: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/release/note/OL_24726.html
...which states that:
•When kron initiates a write to the startup-config (that is, execution of the write mem command), it is locked indefinitely.
switch# show run
Unable to get configuration. Try again later.
Workaround: Reload the switch to restore access, then use EEM with the timer event to schedule the required task. CSCtk68692
Question: Is there another work around without reloading the switch? Will rebooting the switch correct error without a reload?
