Urgent Help - Please Reply

Dear All,

I have here in my company 25 Cisco Switch 3560 .

as i know, i will configure the Switch with the Basic configuration like Hostname & IP-Address - & Gateway.

My 2 question is :-

1- if i configure the switch with the Basic Configuration like IP-Address & Subnet mask & So on , where its saved on the Switch Exactly ?

2- instead of have the 25 Switch in-front of me , and assign each switch his configuration like IP-Address & all the Things, is there any way to copy the Configurations from the switch which i configured on the Text file & then on each switch i will modify the Text file which include the configuration for that switch ( New configuration ) & then apply to that switch ( the New one ) ?

if i can do like that , can i & HOW CAN I DO IT , PLEASE HELP ME BY WRITING THE COMMAND WHICH I NEED TO FOLLOW IT ?

Thanks .

Rania.

If your only configuring the IP address, subnet mask & default gateway on the switch, there is very little point copying the config from switch to switch, as these are the basic requirements to be able to copy the config.

You can make this setup easy by typing the commands into a text file and simply copying and pasting via hyperterminal.

your text file would read something like:

conf t

int e0

ip address ###.###.###.### ###.###.###.###

no shut

!

ip default-gateway ###.###.###.###

once you have the basic ip setting configured, you can copy a config file via tftp.

To copy a config file from a switch to the tftp server use the command:

switch# copy startup-config tftp

then follow the prompts

to copy from a tftp server back to a switch:

switch# copy tftp startup-config

All the config is saved in the file called 'config' within flash:
