Hi,


Startup config is held in flash.

e.g.

config.text

vlan.dat

private-config.text


Running config is in memory.

so, does the running config and startup config always have to be called that?


so you say the startup config will be called config.text ?

Carl,


Try:


dir nvram:


Your startup config is called startup-config, and it has to be that that I'm aware of.


HTH,

John

Hi,


That is the name of the file in flash, yes.


No Startup-config and running-config cannot be renamed.

Hi Carl,


Yes NVRAM is Flash Memory

(Non-Volatile RAM)


System: is a RAM drive.



Run the following commands:

dir system:

dir nvram:

dir flash:



You'll notice that the filesize of nvram:startup-config and flash:config.text are the same.

As are nvram:private-config and flash:private-config.text.


They're just two different ways of accessing the same files.



Was there a reason that you asked? Were you just curious or did you want to know how to do something?
