LAB 2-6 Copying Running-Config into Startup-Config

One should save the Running configuration (RAM) into Startup Configuration (NVRAM) so that the Startup-config is copied to Running-config when the Router gets reloaded.

 CORVIT-R1# copy running-config startup-config

Destination filename [startup-config]? Building configuration...

 You could also use the following: CORVIT# copy  run   start OR CORVIT# write memory  OR CORVIT# wr

[OK] CORVIT-R1#

The contents of startup-config file do not get erased when Router is reloaded. However, we can manually erase startup-config file.
