What is the purpose of the startup configuration file on a Cisco router?
- to facilitate the basic operation of the hardware components of a device
- to contain the commands that are used to initially configure a router on startup
- to contain the configuration commands that the router IOS is currently using
- to provide a limited backup version of the IOS, in case the router cannot load the full featured IOS
Explanation:The startup configuration file is stored in NVRAM and contains the commands needed to initially configure a router. It also creates the running configuration file that is stored in in RAM.
