Copy run start

On command on a cisco switch would have saved me a decent amount of stress on Tuesday.  Vlans that you didn't create, using a VTP server that you only half understand coupled with power outages = fuck yeah wasted time and day.

The guy that was Cisco certified decided he didn't want to work here any more, I'm not certed, but have somewhere between one half and three quarters of a clue, but sometimes I forget important things like copy run start.

This means nothing to anybody I realize, but I'm kicking myself for it.

copy run start  <--- Important last step you idiot.

  2. It is a command for Cisco equipment to copy the currently running configuration to the startup configuration so that any changes you have made are persistent across reboots. It copies from volatile ram to non-volatile ram

  3. I dont use cisco so.. yeah.

  4. Whoa! So you're standing in as the Cisco specialist since he quit? I heard Cisco jobs pays good money.
