I wonder what's the meaning of Method in show ip int bri
Method : nvram, unset, manual...
what's the difference among them??
is anyone knows about this? or document?
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
Table 30 provides the following list
The Method field has the following possible values:
â¢RARP or SLARP-Reverse Address Resolution Protocol (RARP) or Serial Line Address Resolution Protocol (SLARP) request.
â¢TFTP-Configuration file obtained from the TFTP server.
â¢manual-Manually changed by CLI command.
â¢NVRAM-Configuration file in NVRAM.
â¢IPCP-ip address negotiated command.
â¢DHCP-ip address dhcp command.
â¢unassigned-No IP address.
Hope to help
