Backs up the configuration of the switch to an end station. This command backs up the switch configuration only. It does not back up the load image. It will prompt you for the IP address of the workstation to which you are saving the switch configuration as well as the backup path and filename. The end station must have TFTP Server software running in order to transfer files from the switch. If you have previously entered backup switch, these values appear as the parameter defaults for [ServerIP] and [Path]. The default is the name of the switch— smartcell. If you change the switch name using modify switchname, the backup filenames are automatically adjusted to reflect this new switch name.

You can back up directly to the /tftpboot directory or create a subdirectory under /tftpboot (for example, /back_dir). However, your backup file must exist under the /tftpboot directory or the sub-directoryon the target end station. The backup file can be created with any name. Both the directory and file must have appropriate read and write permissions to complete the backup successfully.

Restores the switch configuration from a prior backup. It requires an IP address, as well as the file name. As with backup switch, this command also requires TFTP protocol. The switch must be rebooted afterrestore switch for the new configuration to take effect.

Examples

Restoring a backup file will completely replace any data stored in the flash. Are you sure this is what you want to do?
