copy startup config from a usb to switch

Hi all,

Is it possible to copy a switch config from a USB to an active running config for disaster recovery purposes?

Thanks

Re: copy startup config from a usb to switch

You cannot copy a config to the running/active config.

You can copy from the usb to the startup config position:

'copy usb startup-config '

then reload the switch and your config will be running.
