Re: what's the meaning of Method in show ip int bri??

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

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/ios/ipaddr/command/reference/iad_ip.html#wp1027146

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
