i have 2 PoE cisco 2960 switches. Need to copy config of one switch to anither.
Kindly help on this.
There are multiple ways you can do it:
Telnet the first switch, copy the configuration on a simple text file using the show run command and paste it in the text file. Then connect to the new switch using a serial connection, go to the global configuration mode and paste the configuration to it.
Alternatively you can use a TFTP server.
Let us know if you need further information concerning the commands needed or something else. In case those two switches are planned to work together, you need to change some things, like IP addresses, hostnames etc.
You can copy your config from one switch to TFTP server, and then from TFTP to another switch
To copy your current config issue
copy startup-config tftp:
Follow the instruction
Then you are done, login to another switch and issue
copy tftp: startup-config
Follow the instructions
When you are done here, save your config with wr mem command and then either reload the switch or:
copy startup-config running-config
