I am confused - hence the post here. I am endeavouring to get a switch to pull its configuration from a TFTP server when the switch is powered up. So far I have managed to get the switch to pull the config over, but only after I have assigned an IP address to VLAN1 on the switch - then it pulls the conf file off the TFTP server.
What I am looking to achieve is the sitaution where a switch is plugged in out of the box, and it pulls down all its conf from the server - for example when a switch dies and needs to be replaced.
Is there a way to achieve this - and if so is it possible for a switch to automatically pull its IOS image from a server as well.
