Saving the Current Configuration

By default, the system automatically saves any change to the system configuration to nonvolatile storage (NVS). This feature is known as Automatic Commit mode, but has no effect on the CLI prompt. You can disable this feature by issuing the service manual-commit command. In Manual Commit mode (again with no effect on the CLI prompt), any configuration change affects only the current system configuration (the running configuration).

If you are in Manual Commit mode and want to save the configuration changes to NVS, you must issue either the write memory command or the copy running-configuration startup-configuration command.

If you change the configuration while in Manual Commit mode and issue the reload command without saving the changes to the startup configuration, the system provides a warning, allowing you to save the changes before reloading.
