[c-nsp] Unable to read configuration. Try again later

This will provbably help to understand the processes involved:

"To retrieve configuration information, the software must poll every 
component to collect the distributed information. This configuration state 
retrieval operation is performed by a process known as nonvolatile 
generation (NVGEN), and it is used by command line interpreter (CLI) 
commands such as show running-configuration, write memory, and copy 
system:running-configuration to display or copy the running system 
configuration. When invoked, NVGEN queries each system component and each 
instance of interface or other configuration objects. A running 
configuration file is constructed as NVGEN traverses the system performing 
these queries. "

It seems to take a long time on Your system. You may wish to upgrade IOS to 
have this message disappear :-)
