Hello Sanghee,

the method is a short way to tell how the ip address has been given to the interface:


nvram -> saved config

manual -> configured after last reload

unset -> simply not configured


there should also an option for when you set the ip address using the initial setup dialog on a device with an empty or skipped configuration.


see command reference

or

Table 30 provides the following list


The Method field has the following possible values:


•RARP or SLARP-Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) or Serial Line Address Resolution Protocol (SLARP) request.


•BOOTP-Bootstrap protocol.


•TFTP-Configuration file obtained from the TFTP server.


•manual-Manually changed by CLI command.


•NVRAM-Configuration file in NVRAM.


•IPCP-ip address negotiated command.


•DHCP-ip address dhcp command.


•unassigned-No IP address.


•unset-Unset.


•other-Unknown.




Hope to help

Giuseppe
