Restoring a saved config to another router?

Hi,

I have a cisco 837 that I have a saved config from. The 837 is now faulty and I need to run up another and restore the config (via tftp on my laptop) and send it out to replace.

1.) I have another 837 that I need to reset as I don't know the password.

2.) What commands do I need to use to restore the config from my laptop?

Thanks

Hi,

For password recovery:

For restoring the configuration on the new router, you can simply log into the router and copy and paste the configuration from your laptop to your router under conf t.

Re: Restoring a saved config to another router?

I can copy and paste the whole lot in one go? Or in stages? Will it just overwrite what's already on the config?

Thought maybe I could just tftp it back?

Hi,

If you want to tftp it use:

copy tftp: startup-config

But i always use to do copy and paste in stages, in order to review what i am copying.

Start cisco from console and press Break 1 time per 2 sec.

When cisco come to rommon type confreg 0x2142

Like this:

rommon 1 confreg 0x2142

rommon 2 reset

After reboot router, ignor save configuration

Type no after each setup question, or press Ctrl-C in order to skip the initial setup procedure

Type enable at the Router> prompt.

Type copy startup-config running-config

Type show running-config (u see conig)

After

conf t

username xxxxxx privilege 15 password xxxxxxx

end

conf t

write memory

After Configuration register is 0x2102

Great, then copy and paste the backup I have? Or better to use tftp?

It is up to you.

First try TFTP

Will the tftp put on exactly the same config as the backup? So I don't need to do anything else?

Hi,

Yes.
