show running-config full

Can someone please tell me what the point of the "full" option to the "show running-config" command is, and what sort of information (specifically) might be hidden if you don't use this option when issuing the command? The IOS documentation doesn't say.

Hi,

The full keyword is the default option for the command, this makes, "show run" = "show run full", you can find below other details:

R6#show running-config ?

brief configuration without certificate data

class-map Show class-map information

full full configuration

interface Show interface configuration

linenum Display line numbers in output

map-class Show map class information

policy-map Show policy-map information

view View options

| Output modifiers

R6#show running-config in

R6#show running-config interface f0/0

Building configuration...

Current configuration : 122 bytes

!

interface FastEthernet0/0

ip address 192.168.1.6 255.255.255.0

end

Are you sure? Because most IOS commands don't have default options.

Hi,

Please always check the "Defaults" part in the DocCD for any command and you'll always find a default option, for example for this command i quote:

"The show running-config command without any arguments or keywords displays the entire contents of the running configuration file."
