How to save running configuration file to FTP or TFTP?

Hello folks,

 

I am reading through the mountain of documentation, but not easily finding how to identify which configuration file is my running (or startup) configuration file.  I've attached picture below.  Anyone know how to tell which one if the running (or startup) configuration file and the command to copy it to my FTP server?

 

Thanks,

Ok, just asked a friend.

One command to use is this:

 

backup startup-configuration to <tftp ip address>

 

I will close this thread.

You can always see what your bootup configuration is by using the display startup   command.

 

Happy holidays!

A more secure way is to use SFTP, that is having an SFTP client (for example filezilla) to fetch the saved config from your Comware-device.

Please be aware that there will be setup required on the switch to enable FTP, TFTP, or SFTP before you can use a client like Filezilla. 

 

I agree that if you are going to pull the config off a switch it is better to use an encrypted file transfer to safeguard the config.  The user passwords are always encrypted and not in clear text so you don't have to worry about that.

 

Once you generate the ssh key pair, you would also be able to ssh into the switch to manage it.  Also a good idea.
