Switch Config Backup/Restore

If a switch dies, how do I get another switch and get/load the configuration from Cisco Works? What is the process? I am running Cisocworks LMS 3.0.1.

Thanks!

Re: Switch Config Backup/Restore

The first thing you need to do is add basic manageability to the switch. This means you need to add an IP address, SNMP credentials and telnet/SSH credentials at the very least. This also assumes the new switch will have the same address and config as the old one.

Go to RME > Config Mgmt > Config Editor, and open the config for the old switch. Make sure the config looks okay, then click the Deploy button. Choose the Merge option (NOT Overwrite). Then you're done.
