Difference!!

Hello,

Whats the exact difference between "write terminal" and "write memory" commands?

After modifying the configuration,when i used "write terminal" in catalyst 6500 to save the configuration in NVRAM,i found that the config was not saved.But when i tried using "write memory" it worked fine.

Thanks in advance...

The 'write terminal' is just the old command for 'show running-config'.

Can you explain it more clearly.Thanks ...

Re: Difference!!

I hope I can explain it this way:

'write memory' or 'copy running-config startup-config' = copy the active configuration into NVRAM.

'write terminal' or 'show running-config' = copy the running configuration into the terminal screen.

'write network' or 'copy running-config tftp' = copy the active configuration to a TFTP server.

Plus some documentation:
