Startup configuration

NOTE
There is no startup configuration for logical chassis cluster mode. Switches in a logical chassis cluster always preserve their running configuration.

The startup configuration is persistent. It is applied when the system reboots.

  • When the switch boots up for the first time, the switch uses the default configuration as the startup configuration, depending on the mode.
  • The startup configuration always matches the current Brocade VCS Fabric mode. It is deleted when you change modes, unless you make a backup copy.
  • When you make configuration changes to the running configuration and save the changes to the startup configuration with the copy command, the running configuration becomes the startup configuration.
