Where is ‘wr’ on NX-OS

write memory or wr shortly is one of most used commands on IOS devices. It’s short, simple and quick to execute. Who would like to write copy running-config startup-config every time?
Unfortunately on NX-OS wr is no more. I don’t really understand why developers decided to remove that command. Thankfully it can be restored using aliases

N7K(config)# cli alias name wr copy running-config startup-config

  1. I don't think that is a "remove" thing. NX-OS is based on SAN-OS (without write mem too) which was Linux based (BTW... I think :)). The same thing is for working without "do" with NX-OS.
