Re: Vlan.dat backup in 6513 catos

You need to find where the file is. You can try a dir /all. Then copy from that disk to your tftp server.

SWITCH12#dir /all

Directory of disk0:/

1 -rw- 107998 Feb 24 2008 23:23:58 -06:00 running-config

2 -rw- 5716 Feb 24 2008 23:25:18 -06:00 vlan.dat

6 -rw- 78316036 Jan 29 2009 12:52:10 -06:00 s72033-advipservicesk9_wan-mz.122-33.SXH4.bin

SWITCH12#copy disk0: tftp:

Source filename []? vlan.dat

Address or name of remote host []? 10.1.2.17

Destination filename [vlan.dat]?

Try just dir

Re: Vlan.dat backup in 6513 catos

Unlike Native IOS, the vlan information is visible in the running configuration on any VTP mode so if you are backing up the running configuration, you are also backing up the Vlan information from the switch.

On Native IOS, the Vlan information is only visible in the running config while the VTP mode is set to transparent.

And the command to backup the config is:

copy config tftp
