backup config fails to load - loops

I was trying to use a backup of a config file on a Netvanta 1550-48p from a switch of the same model. 

It just keeps looping through the backup. How can I stop this so I can manually set up the switch. I am currently connected via console port.

Re: backup config fails to load - loops

My assumption is you have a serial VT-100 connection to the NV1550 switch and can see the boot sequence.  If that is correct, then watch for a message to press the ESC key within 5 seconds, press the ESC key.  At that point you should be in the bootstrap mode, which is "before" the startup-config file is executed line by line in NVRAM.  In this area the only task I every worked on was the "bypass password" and "boot" commands.  I am not sure if you will have access to the NVRAM area.  If you do, try "erase startup-config" to remove the problem configuration, then "boot" to finish the boot process to the ">" prompt.  Hope this helps.

I have not had a chance to check this. I will post back as soon as I do.
