startup-config vs running-config

Good Morning All:

Question about a silly thing that I have forgotten. I can get my configuration onto my switch as the startup-config but when I reload it does not become the running-config.  The running-config retains the old configuration. 

If I issue a 'write,' would that turn my new config into the running config?

Thank you in advance!

Hi

i use

switch# copy run start

(running-config startup config)

i think write does the same.

Ashley,

What it sounds like is happening is that you're copying the config over to the startup config, but then when you reload it asks you to save the current config and you're saying yes. Copy the startup config over, but say no when it asks you to save the current and you should be good.

A write command will save the current running to the startup config and this doesn't sound like what you're wanting to do.

HTH,
John
