copy running-config startup-config

We had an issue a couple weeks ago when our power failed and so did the UPS. At first, everything seem to come back online as usual but later we noticed a "network issue." We didn't think much of it because operations were only somewhat degraded. After a few more tests, we noticed that our old style Cisco ATM switch had reverted to our legacy configuration. Apparently, the new running configuaration was not saved.

At any rate, here are the steps to save the running configuration for this particular IOS.

Hyperterminal or Telnet into switch
enable
Password goes here
config terminal

run your configuration commands here
...
and soforth
control+Z
enable
show running-config
show startup-config

=======

I was notified by the aforementioned My SysAd Blog commenter that another blogger was blatantly lifting content from "My SysAd Blog." I tried contacting the blogger but he or she was missing contact information on their blog. I left a comment on one of the offending posts regarding the infraction. Frankly speaking, I do not mind people using the tips or even copying them but do not copy without linking back. I appreciate the commenter who brought this to my attention. Thanks.

So far, I found 13 posts that were verbatim on the blog. I left a comment on this post,  unable-to-switch-user.html, and I noticed it has since been deleted.
