Clear logs on 2524 switches

The command 'show tech' hangs on an entry of system log (strange chars?)
How can I clear log on this switch?

Thanks

Re: Clear logs on 2524 switches

On a Cisco the old way was

conf t
no logg buff
logg buff
end

Then they came up with

clear log

I don't know if either of these work on a 2524 but they are so close to Cisco's they might work even tho the docs don't say.

I wonder if you could tftp the event log to a file, edit out the garbage and then tftp it back to the event log?


You might check to see if you have the latest version of code since it could just be a code bug that keeps it from working. The Release notes do mention a problem with the event log garbling GARP events. Also:
PR_4406 CLI: The CLI command "show tech" causes an error message when the
command is executed from within config mode.
You should be at F.05.09.

Finally you may have to tftp your config to a file then reset the switch to the defaults and then tftp the config back in again.

It is simpler to power reboot (not sw reload) the switch!

Re: Clear logs on 2524 switches

Are you experincing any other problems other than this? What caused you to look at the tech info? If everything is working okay then it's most likely a formatting error in the software and new code will address the issue.
