houghton312 - Thank you for asking this question in the support community. I noticed you also opened a ticket with ADTRAN Technical Support. When you get a resolution, will you post the results on the forum so other users can benefit?
houghton312 - It looks like you were given the following suggestions from an Adtran Support Engineer:
The best syntax to use to copy an existing configuration to your startup-config is to use this command:
copy <filename> startup-config
When you reboot, make sure you do not save your configuration as this will cause it to save your running-configuration back to your startup-config.
The best way to rename a file is to use this command:
copy <old filename> <new filename>
Just remember to erase the old version to preserve flash space:
erase <old filename>
