Procurve config backup

is there a CLI command on the Procurve 5406zl switches that I can backup the switch configuration?

Re: Procurve config backup

Copy a saved config or running config to a tftp server:

Switch# copy tftp

example from running to file:

Switch# copy run tftp config1.cfg


Get this CLI ref guide, it shows how to configure HP ProVision, HP Comware5 and Cisco switches for lots of different functions, in a side-by-side comparison, so if you know one CLI, you see how to do it in a different CLI:


More than you may need, but good, concise bits of info.

Re: Procurve config backup

You can also backup the config remotely with SSH and SCP enabled on the switch ("ip ssh" and "ip ssh filetransfer"), using:

(for example)

pscp -scp -l USERNAME -pw PASSWORD -2 c:\switch.cfg

Re: Procurve config backup

..or you can use automated backup solution http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/ with configuration versioning (it's not only cisco...).
