Interface in shutdown state after copy tftp start
Posted on 2012-03-20
On a brand new Cisco ME6524 switch, I recently overwrite the startup config from a backup config.
My question is: Shouldn't the backup config overwrite the startup config? The reason why I ask is after the switch reloads with the new config, the interface whose config should be overwritten without "shutdown" still in admin down state.
I know copy tftp run will merge the config together, but why would copy tftp start give me the same result?
