Interface in shutdown state after copy tftp start

Hi Experts,

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?

Please advise.

When you reset the switch, are you asked if you want to save config before resetting and if so do you say yes?

That is your problem.  When you say yes, it writes the running config back to startup.  Say no and you should be fine.
