copying start to TFTP-3122 bytes, sh run 4487 bytes

Answered Question
Jan 22nd, 2008

Hi,

Copying start to TFTP server shows 3122 bytes copied over, however a sh run provides an output of 4487 bytes. Is the discrepancy between the above memory volumes normal?

I have this problem too.

I have checked on a couple of routers and they copy the same length when copying start or copying running. It looks to me as if changes were made in running-config that are not saved to startup-config.

Thanks Rick. I "copied TFTP to start", then a "sh run" showed same discrepancy in memory volume. We are using a 2821 router with full firewall features. I wonder if some attributes of the firewall do not copy to TFTP.

Do you happen to have remarks in your configuration?

Have you done a simple "wr" recently to make sure run and start are the exact copy?
