Failed to save configuration to flash!


Failed to save configuration to flash!

Hello community,


We have GS724Tv4 and GS724TPv2 switches across our site. Sometimes when we attempt to apply changes we receive the message "Failed to save configuration to flash!"


Is this a known issue because I am seeing on it multiple switches with different configurations? Is there a firmware to resolve it?


We are using version:

Boot VersionSoftware Version


Thanks for the help!

Several firmware upgrades since - note the conersion from does not allow to forward the existing config, so plan time for documentation first.


Note: You can find all documentations and downloads for the NEtgear devics starting from


For the GS724TPv2 update you need the last, and then an intermediate and then from there you should be able to update to the current


On the GS724TPv2 download page - click "View Previous Versions" - you find all firmware and most relaese notes.



  1. Existing configurations will be erased after upgrading the firmware from v1.1.1.x to v2.0.0.x. Furthermore, configuration files are not compatible between v1.x.x.x and v2.x.x.x firmware.
  2. To upgrade the firmware to v2.0.0.16 from v1.1.x.x, you must follow the following order:V1.1.1.x.rom => V1.1.50.39.rom => V2.0.0.16.img => V2.0.0.16.bix.


Keeping the GS724Tv4 to a curent firmware should be easier, but also review all firmware steps (including the release notes "View Previous Versions") ->


PS. This thread should be moved to the Smart Plus And Smart Pro Managed Switches Forum section by a moderator.
