Hello all,

I know this may not be the best place for my question, but hopefully
some kind soul here can help out. I have to move a router from one
building to another and need to know the proper steps to bring it down.
I know the "reload" command restarts the router, but what is the
command to shut it down? Or do I just pull the plug? It is a Cisco 2600
router.

Thanks.

Best way is to telnet (or console) in, backup the config, write memory then
simply hit the power switch. There is no "shut down" command it.

As a previous post said .. just save the running config to nvram ... "wr
mem" and you're ok to pull the power.

It also pays to look for any "boot system flash:<filename>" commands in the
config and make sure the <filename> still exists on the flash.  You can "sh
run | inc boot system" and then "dir flash" to check.
