Securing config on 2610

Running ios 12.2 on cisco 2610. Observed unusual behavior whenever we experience power outage. Despite having saved running-config in NVRAM, after every power failure or router power-off, have to reconfigure. Is there anything we are missing out?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Securing config on 2610


Check your config register. It is possible that the file is there but the router's "confreg" is setup such that it doesn't boot from nvram. Do a "sh ver" and check the last line. It should show "Configuration register is 0x2102".

If it's not then go to configure mode and type "config-register 0x2102" . Save your config and reboot the router.

Re: Securing config on 2610

Thanks for the reply. I did just that (since config register was showing oxA102). However when rebooting the rooter, trouble started! The following is the display I receive followed by a continous image decompression.

Thanks again.
