SOLVED: Got everything working for now, thanks for the help!
First, a disclaimer: I am an utter networking newbie. I am working a part-time IT job for minimal pay, and now I am tasked above my pay grade. At any rate I need to get a new 2960 switch configured.
Some backgroud - I do not have documentation detailng the setup of the network, but I know we have an identical 2960 installed in another building. Since I had physical access, I was able to recover the password and copy down the configuration to my laptop. I now need to configure the new switch in another building (but its connected to the same fiber connection). I would assume that both switch could use nearly identical configurations. I was hoping that I could simply copy the configuration from the already working switch to the newly installed switch. to that end I am including the configuration file that I backed up from the first switch.
Now I know there will be some obvious changes when uploading the config to the new switch, such as IP (?) and hostname, however past that I am in the dark. If you could, please lend some help as to whether this config file can simply be uploaded to the new switch, and with what changes.
Note: I simply cut out some password fields and IP addresses, but did not delete any lines. This configuration is working fine in the one building, and to me the new switch is setup in a way that they should be configured in a similar manner.
Any help is sincerely appreciated,
