Configuration question



We have a number of WS-C3560-8PC-S switches and looking into upgrading all our switches to WS-C3560CG-8PC-S.

All ports are configured for various different v-lans.

To do the upgrade to Gb switches will I be able to just copy the configuration file from the old 10/100 switches and load it into the new Gb switches or will I need to manually configure each new Gb switch?

Thank you in advance for any assistance,
