Push partial update configuration file to ProCurve

Is it possible to push a partial configuration file, holding additional and/or updated commands, from a TFTP server to the running config of a ProCurve switch?
I need to script this action using SNMP to perform a bulk update on numerous devices.
I know how to retrieve the config using SNMP and TFTP get, but I am not sure a push is possible of a partial config file without erasing the rest of the existing config.
PCM is not an option.

Not really possible.

If you have a "newer" ProCurve (now E-Series) switch, it may have capability for 3 different config files: 'sh conf fi' to see.

If so, build a config, upload to a different config file position, reboot to that config later.

examples:

upload config:
'copy tftp config
to boot to it later:
'boot system flash config

Hi,

take a look at teraterm. with teraterm it could work, but then it's not snmp and tftp but telnet or ssh. and of course you can script bulk updates with it..

Was affraid of that. Thx anyway.

Re: Push partial update configuration file to ProCurve

most of the config is available for change via SNMP so you could do it directly, otherwise, you could use http://expect.sourceforge.net/
