    What is the different between "show run-config" and "show running-config"?

    m1xed0s

      I was doing the practise modules for CCNA Wireless on Cisco learning network and got confused by the question in module 2 and module 6.

       

      https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/wireless_ccna/iuwne?tab=practice

       

      More specifically Q.33 in module 2 and Q.5 in module 6. From the result of the practices, "show run-config" can be used to backup WLC configuration and "show running-config" is used to dump configuration onto screen as the same format as other Cisco devices. But I did not see any difference by running these 2 on a 4402 WLC.

       

      So what is/are the difference between "show run-config" and "show running-config" on controller CLI? I know "show running-config" is alias to "show run-config" but any others?

       

      Thanks,
