appropriate procedure to export and import switch configurations??

We have several SFP-300 series PoE switches already configured and in production usage.

What is the appropriate procedure to export the configuration from one of these switches, then import into a newly-purchased switch of the same model??

The only thing that needs to be different asap is the switch's IP address...can I modify this within the exported configuration file to be imported??
Or is there some other way I should go about this process??

Thank you, Tom

The configuration is just a

The configuration is just a text file. It's contents is basically just a list of configuration commands. You can download a backup from one of the switches that are already in use and modify it in a text editor. Then, you should be able to upload it to the new switch. That probably just works without adjustments, if the new switch has the same interface type and count.
