Cisco 2900 Series Switch Setup Mode

Posted on 2014-07-25

I have a quick question in regards to "Setup Mode" when in a Cisco 2900 Series Switch.  When I type "setup" it brings me to the Initial Configuration Mode asking (Y/N).  If I want to Cancel this and just get back to the initial Login of the switch how to do this?

The switch is already configured but I accidently typed "Setup" instead of "Menu" and it brought me to this Initial Configuration Mode.

Will this just timeout?

Please let me know as soon as you can.

Type "N" and press "enter"

Save the config once the switch loads.
It may be a good idea to backup your config
