2 Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS Command-Line Interface OL-5593-01 Prerequisites for Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI Prerequisites for Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI Follow the instructions in the quick start guide that shipped with your router to install the chassis, connect cables, and power up the router. Timesaver Before powering up the router, disconnect all WAN cables from the router to keep it from trying to run the AutoInstall process. The router may try to run AutoInstall if you power it on while there is a WAN connection on both ends and the router does not have a valid configuration file stored in NVRAM (for instance, when you add a new interface). It can take several minutes for the router to determine that AutoInstall is not connected to a remote TCP/IP host. Restrictions for Basic Software Configuration Using the Cisco IOS CLI If Cisco Router and Security Device Manager (SDM) is installed on your router, we recommend that you use Cisco SDM instead of the Cisco IOS CLI to perform the initial software configuration. To access SDM, see the quick start guide that shipped with your router.
