From the screenshot, it seems like you're trying to add another file to nvram and it's failing for that. When it shows you [startup-config] that means that it's going to write to that name by default. If you change the name, you're telling the switch that you want to write to a different file that's not the default. In this case, you can simply hit enter and you should be able to save the config. Alternatively, you can type "write" and hit enter instead of "copy running-config startup-config".

HI Waheed,

If you type

99XCI001#copy running-config startup-config

Destination filename [startup-config]? con(Dont write this word...just enter from computer)

%Error copying nvram:con (Invalid argument)

99XCI001#

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just do enter :

99XCI001#copy running-config startup-config

Destination filename [startup-config]?

Building configuration...

[OK]

99XCI001#

it will save ur running config to startup.
