Cisco Catalyst switches can be configured using a number of different utilities. The most common way to configure a Cisco Catalyst switch, such as the Catalyst 3560, is using the command line interface (CLI) provided with the switch. When typing configuration commands into the switch, all configurations are held in active memory on the switch, but are not saved to the start-up configuration until the command to save the configuration to flash is issued.
