Config Transfer

All,

I need to transfer a config from a TFTP Server to a 4507 and a 6513. When I transfer the config to both those switches, does it require a reboot? Lastly, what is the command set to do so? Thanks

Config Transfer

Hi Thomas,

No reboot required but you need to issue 'write mem' to save the running config. Check the below link on how to restore configuration from tftp server. Make you can ping the tftp server from switch.

Re: Config Transfer

Well that depends, if you have an existing config in your switch/router we mem may not work. It's better to do copy start run to push the downloaded config

The 4507 and 6513 currently have a config on them. Once I transfer the config to them, I execute a copy start run?

Re: Config Transfer

A. Console into device just in case

B. Bak up existing sh run to notepad or log file

C. Rename your existing config in the device to .old 'config.old'

D. Download the new config from tftp

E. copy start run

P.s: if you simply do we mem it'll overwrite your start up with running & you don't want that.

Hope that helps.

Re: Config Transfer

One last question, If I dont rename the existing config, will the transfer overwrite it? I then perform a copy start run. I should still be good? Correct?
