Can I save changes to the Certified directory?

No. The /flash/certified directory is intended to store only tested, reliable configuration and image files. Configuration changes must be saved to theboot.cfg file in the/flash/working directory. Once those changes have been roadtested, the contents of the/flash/working directory can be copied to the/flash/certified directory via the

copy working certified command.

What happens when the switch boots?

During the boot process, the switch compares the contents of the /flash/working and/flash/certified directories. Based on this comparison, the switch determines which directory to use as its running software.

Working and Certified Are Identical

If the software in the /flash/workingand /flash/certifieddirectories are completely identical, the switch considers the software in both directories to be equally reliable. In this case, the switch will run from the /flash/workingdirectory.
