      Hi Dumber

      Thanks for your reply. Actually, sometime i have to work on the running routers and i can not restart them in working hours but at the same time i have to make few changes but it might happen that i enter some wrong configuration and i dont want to copy my running config to startup config then i need to clear my running config and enter the right commands.

      Thanks and regards

        You should be able to backup the configs to different file names just in case there is an issue. You could also look at copying them to a tftp server as well.

            Usually when you made changes which needed to removed you simply enter the same command with "no" for it.
            However if you screw it up you can try to copy the startup config to the running config. Although it might merge both configs
            At the moment I haven't access to some cisco devices so I can-t check it out

            So make sure you copy the startup config to a tftp server you have a nice backup

            Edit: also as long you don't give it a wr mem or copy run start the config will not be saved when you give it a reload.
