Sorry for this newbe question , in October 2012 I will start some CCNA TRAINING , so for this purpose I have ordered :
CISCO ROUTER 1841
CISCO ROUTER 2621XM
CISCO ROUTER 2691
CISCO SWITCH 3550
CISCO SWITCH 2950
This is better than the Virtual Packet Tracer and on ebay this things cost nothing anymore
Now I easy question for you :
How can I copy a FULL configuration from the switch or router ; I mean by this can I do something like : copy nvram:/*.* tftp:/
This seams not to work I have to copy all files one by one ; any other option ?
The reason for this question is to keep a full copy of all what I did for my home training and test.
Thank You in advance for your help.
PS: If you think I need some other CISCO ROUTERS or SWITCH for my home test setup , please feel free to tell me.
Vlan Database is not a part of Running/Startup configuration on a Switch.
It is a seperate file stored in router's flash.
If you want to save your Vlan database you need to save the below mentioned file.
4 -rwx 1716 May 31 2012 14:49:58 +08:00 vlan.dat
Command to copy vlan database:
RTR#copy flash:vlan.dat ftp:

Also if you just want to take backup of your configuration, follow steps in below document.
Please rate if helpful.
Cisco IOs Archive feature allows you to automatically backup the configuration file at a set time period to an FTP, TFTP server.
1) Go to archive mode.
2)Now it is possible define the destination path. In this example, I use the FTP protocol to send the running configuration; the name ‘$h’ instructs the system to use the router hostname when naming the archived configuration (in this case $h is equal to RTR)
RTR(config-archive)#path :@192.168.217.1/$h" rel="nofollow">ftp://:@192.168.217.1/$h
3)To instruct the router to save the configuration each day (1440 minutes) and to enable automatic backup generation when write memory command is typed, use
To see how many configurations are been saved use the command ‘show archive’.
