shutdown command cisco ASA

Is shutdown/no shutdown status of the (vlan) interface also stored in startup configuration?

On remote Cisco ASA I have run sh command in conf t mode on external vlan interface.
In that moment I have lost the communication with that router. I guess the interface was shut down.
Will the reboot of the router bring the interface again on? The running configuration was not saved to startup-config.

Thank you!

Yes - the startup (no shut) overrides If you did not save the config after issuing the command,

Rebooting the firewall will restore it to the last saved configuration

Yes, a reboot should bring it back to life, I assume you are saying you issued the 'shutdown' command on the vlan interface is this correct?

Since you didn't copy run start a simple reboot will get you back up and running

I have entered the following commands:

enable
password
conf t
int vlan2
sh
At this moment the connection was lost.

I was planning to shorten show command, but I guess it was issued shutdown command.

Yes I'd agree, when in conf t mode there is no show command, to get a show command to run you need 'do' in front of it, like 'do sh run'

But a reboot will fix

Thank you both for prompt answers.
Tomorrow morning I will ask an on-site person to restart the router.
Sunday is not the right day to make configuration changes on remote equipment...
