you need to assign an ip address to Vlan 1

to do it :

conf t

int vlan 1

ip address x.x.x.x x.x.x.x

no shut

then you need a tftp server like solarwinds tftp server ,install it on your computer and connect the computer to the switch.

then to backup configuration do this :

switch#copy running tftp

the switch asks for some parameters like the ip address of tftp server and ...

then to backup ios :

switch# copy flash: tftp:

it will ask for ip of the tftp server and the filename in the flash.

Please Rate if helpful.
