WS-C4006 How to save the configuration


I have Cisco 4006 Switch model; normally we don't need to save the configuration on this device but somehow this device is not saving any configuration.

Can someone help me; how to save the configuration. Attached is the IOS version detail.

can u verify whether this command is enabled in ur box or not ?

set config mode text auto-save enable

hope you are aware of this cli which does save the configs automatically after every 30mins.

Dear Kumar,

I have this command enabled in my switch:

set config mode text nvram

Can you please also let me know if autosave is enable then where it will save the configuration and in what filename?

It would normally be written to NVRAM. There is no need for text mode in 4006. I would stick with binary mode(set config mode binary).
