i have a cisco 2501 router everytime it boots, it ask me: Would you like to enter the initial configuration dialog? [yes/no]: i answer no i set up passwords and ip manually then i issued the comand copy running-conf startup-config. it feels like it does that. then when i do a reload or powercycle the router goes back to that same question and i do a no answer again and when it boot the conf is empty... when i issue the command sh startup-conf i can see all the changes i made but they are not loaded. i have to manually do a copy startup-config running-config for it to work... any ideas of why this is happening??
I have this problem too.
