Write Command On Nexus Switchs

Unanswered Question
Aug 1st, 2012

Hello Guys,

It seems that Write Command on Nexus Switchs is not available anymore, can you confirm ?

Is there a way to reactivate it or is there an another short command to save the running configuration on Nexus Switchs ?




I have this problem too.

Hi Jonathan, yes wr mem has been deprecated for the Nexus.

You could use the alias command to achieve something similar though

switch(config)# cli alias name wrmem copy running-configuration startup-configuration

Not the same but close

Cisco has finally delivered on their promise to remove the "write" command.

Cisco will not entertain any PER to put the "write" command back in for Nexus.

I see, well thanks to both of you.

I'll will check the alias thing, I didn't know that we can do this.

Thanks again.

It's just "copy run start"  to save the config now.  Or copy run tftp  etc...
