I have been trolling Cisco sites and have not been able to find an answer to this questions.

Are you able to perform a write mem or likewise to save these configs on Nexus 5000 switches?

In the handful of Nexus 5K's that I have worked on, write mem is not supported.

The only write command supported is write erase.

Saving the running configuration is achieved with a copy running-config startup-config.

NX-OS also adds a little flare to the copy operation with a progress bar...

ABC-N5010-01# copy running-config startup-config

  • Thanks mate, copy run start is what I used to use on all switches until I started getting lazy with write mem..

you can also add a line in the config that allows you to use wr mem if you wish, or something even shorter. Simply add an alias statement, such as:

cli alias name wr copy running-config startup-config
