switch(config) ip address 10.10.10.10 255.255.255.0

It depends on the hardware.


Catalyst 3550, 3560 and 3750 are up by default.


Catalyst 4500 and 6500 are shutdown by default.


And even within the above mentioned hardware the behavior may be different in different IOS. The ones I tested came up with my findings from above.


When in doubt, a quick show ip int brief is recommended.


HTH,
