I want to prepare the configuration offline.

When I tftp the configuration to nvram:

No SSH keys generated

VTP mode and domain not configured

While it gives no error at startup?

Is this not possible?

Try this ...

1. Copy the configuration from the TFTP to your flash (copy tftp: flash:).

2. Once the copy has been successful, copy the configuration from the flash: to the running-config (copy flash: run).

I'll try it today.

Problem is that the blades are not in there. So it will give errors on the interface configuration.

Possibly when I'll do a write I'll loose these configuration. That's the reason for the copy tftp

It's as preparation for a migration where the chassis and sup will be upgraded while the existing blades will be kept.

the vtp information is not there because it is not stored in config.text, but rather vlan.dat.

yes correct. you may want to copy vlan.dat before you remove/delete it
