im currentyly doing my ccna and cisco academy lab books seem to use
copy run start or rather copy running-config startup-config however i was watching a traing thing and the instructor was using the command wr
so you can see where this is going whats the difference between using wr and copy run start does one do more than the other etc.
The write commands work in IOS versions before 12.0. Both work in current IOSes.
the commands are doing the same but there is a little difference:
copy run start
prompts you to confirm the destination filename, while wr does not.
Which can be used in some scriptes, e.g.
Actually the complete command is:
which is an old command but it still works. It does the same function as copy run start.
There are also other commands:
write terminal (writes configuration to screen)
write memory (writes configuration to non-volatile memory, e.g. flash)
write network (writes configuration to tftp server on network)
I hope that helps...
