Back up the configuration of the management switch

Take a periodic backup of the switch configuration to an external device. Use this data during any switch maintenance.

Procedure

In the command line, type the following to save the running configuration to a TFTP server in EXEC Privilege mode:
  • Replace <host_IP> with the TFTP server IP address.
  • Replace <filename> with the name of the configuration file.
