In the middle of an excercise today by using Putty to access a dell switch, I copied the show run of it and by mistake I hit the left click and all the copied configuration was pasted in the exec mode. Didn't do 'wr' at all. It was an access switch level of configuration.

I did verify the running configuration soon after and compare it with the already copied configuration, after pasting it in notepad this time and all appears to be same.

Even went a step ahead and compared running configuration with start up configuration of that switch, still found nothing.

The switch too is functioning normally. I cannot reboot it as the switch is in production.

I want to understand what is the effect of such an occurrence.


Regards, Amer
