Configured from memory by console

I would like to know the difference of these two messages

A)

%SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from memory by console

%SYS-5-RESTART: System restarted --

b) Configured from Console by Console

I believe the former statement is due the Cisco IOS software performing important functions during bootup, such as:

Recognition and analysis of interfaces and other hardware

Setup of proper data structures such as Interface Descriptor Blocks (IDBs)

Allocaton of buffers

Reading the configuration from NVRAM to RAM (running-config) and the configuration of the system

Re: Configured from memory by console

Yes, the first message, "Configured from memory by console" is IOS copying the contents of NVRAM into memory. The same can be done by issuing the command "config mem". The second message indicates someone configured the device from the console line.

Re: Configured from memory by console

HI, [Pls Rate if HELPS]

In addition to Clarke's POST:

Issue the configure memory command or the copy startup-config running-config command to copy the NVRAM into memory.

Switch#configure memory

Uncompressed configuration from 1307 bytes to 3014 bytes

Switch#

00:13:52: %SYS-5-CONFIG_I: Configured from memory by console

>> Second Message, i go forward with the Clarke's answer.

PLS RATE if HELPS.

Thanks & Regaerds,
