Is it possible to load the startup-config from disk0?
My 6500 configs are considered classified and I need to be able to pull the configs easily for storage. Also, storing the classified configs on the nvram has implications if the system needs to be re-classified.
Actually there is now an option to boot the config from flash:
lab_test(config)#boot config ?
flash: URL of the config file
nvram: URL of the config file
Much like we can specify booting the system image from flash, or tftp we now have the ability to specify that the config file is in flash. I have not used this feature so can not speak from experience about its operation. But the option certainly seems to be there to boot from a config file in flash.
