Hi Alessandro

With CatOS it is automatically saved for you and that is why there is no "wr mem" equivalent.

Re: save config in 6509 catos 5.5

Hi,

To add a small detail, Catalyst switches that run CatOS have two configuration modes; Binary and Text. By default they operate in binary configuration mode. When you operate in binary configuration mode, most user settings are automatically saved to NVRAM. Text mode typically uses less NVRAM or Flash memory space than binary configuration mode and thus you use text mode if the configuration is too large for storage in binary format in the NVRAM.

Although you must issue the write memory command while you operate in text mode to save the configuration in NVRAM, you can use the "set config mode text auto-save" command in order to automatically save the text configuration in NVRAM.

cat6509> (enable) set config mode ?

binary Set the system configuration mode to binary

text Set the system configuration mode to text

Personally i prefer text mode as it is similar to this of an ordinary IOS router, plus it can be freely backuped and restored as a file.
