I am doing some switch upgrades and as a precuaution will need to backup switch configs before starting. I don't know whether the running conf has been wri m'd already - so will copy and paste the running config to a text file to be safe. My question is - it is obviously much easier to copy & paste a config from the console than it is to set up tftp server and pull accors the config that way. However, is any information ever missed by copy/paste as compared to a tftp of the config? And come to think of it anyway - could you ftp a running config as it is not strictly a file?
