Saving switch configs

I always have save the cisco switches configurations thru telnet onto either a word or text file. I notice however whenever I saved configs it saves the page breaks, etc. Two questions, First what is the best way or steps to copy the switch config files thru telnet. Second, is there a way to save the configs thru without the unnecessary page

breaks because I trying to save them onto network drive just in case that switch goes bad. Thanks.

Re: Saving switch configs

Previous to show run, use the command:

switch#terminal length 0

<0-512> Number of lines on screen (0 for no pausing)

Another possibilty is to use a tftp server and the "write net" command. I mostly give these files the extension .wri to be able to open them directly with wordpad. As the configs are in unix format (LF instead of CR-LF) you will not have proper text formatting when using notepad to read them.

Re: Saving switch configs

Or you can get a nicely featured telnet/ssh client package. I use ZOC 5. It captures screen streams, has notepad options in main menu and other cool tools/features.

ZOC/Pro 5.04
