Hello The configs for each context is saved on the system partition.

You would need to be on the system context that configures the other contexts and assigns interfaces etc. There you would do a copy from the disk to a tftp server. IE

copy /noconfirm disk:dmz1.cfg tftp://

Do this for each of the context configs that you have.

Remember your system context needs to be reachable by your ftp.
