To backup a device configuration to a tftp server

Hello,

I know this is a very basic question, but I do not want to get this wrong. What is the command syntax on a newer IOS to save the configuration file on a tftp server? When it ask for a file name, is it the file name you see in sh bootflash? TIA, Gary

As you may have already noticed the command structure is "copy "

It can be anyone of these commands depending on the source location you want to copy the config from to the tftp server.

copy startup-config tftp

(or)

copy running-config tftp

(or)

copy bootflash tftp

When you issue this command the router/switch would prompt for the IP address of the tftp server followed by the destination filename. The default filename would already show up within brackets and if you hit CR key then it would use that name or you can save it under a different name.
