Copying entire configuration from 800 controller to a spare 800 controller

Hi,

I am relatively new in networking and would like to know the best way to copy the entire configuration of a suspected faulty 800 controller to a spare 800 controller?  Will copying the running/start-up config enough to do this or copying the entire back up of the flash (flashbackup.tar.gz)??

 

I will appreciate any response.

Re: Copying entire configuration from 800 controller to a spare 800 controller

you would restore the flashbackup.

 

Change the vlans and port details as necessary if they are going to change.

 

The process is basically this.

 

do flashbackup
copy flashbackup to new 800
restore flashbackup to new 800 (don't reboot yet)
Install Licenses to New 800
reboot.


If my post is helpful please give kudos, or mark as solved if it answers your post.

A couple of comments to add to Michael_Clarke's answer:

Transfer licenses through licensing portal if the destination 800 will use the same licenses

Install Licenses to New 800
DO NOT WRITE MEMORY if asked

reboot.


A KB article is available for this process.  It is outdated a bit, but concepts are the same:
