I've a 6524 (ME-C6524GT-8S) with IOS version 12.2(18)ZU2.
Today I made 5 times the procedure for password recovery and I've noticed that, after the command "copy startup-config running-config", the L3 interfaces (virtual and physical) and L2 trunk interfaces are always set to "Administratively down" status .
Obviously these interfaces are in "no shutdown" mode in the startup-config.
When I noticed that, I reload the device and after that, these interfaces came up.
Is it a bug or a normale behaviour?
