Nortel: What is the flash.dat file in /ide0/system/config/ directory

Fact:
CES
All CES platforms
CES — Any type
Contivity

Problem Resolution

Fix:
The "flash file" shows some of the things stored in the CES’s EEprom (gets built from it). It’s encrypted so it can’t be FTP’d or read. Its contents can be viewed from GUI under Status->Statistics->Flash Contents screen or by typing "show flash contents" at the CLI prompt. It doesn’t contain "everything" like the system’s password in EEprom.
