    Hi, i wanna upgrade aruba switches in bulk via Airwave, but before that we need to backup the switches, here are my questions:
    1. How do i backup the switch configuration manually via airwave? (not via nightly backup)
    2. Is it enough to back up the configuration only, and not the flash?

    THank you.

    1 - Find the device in Airwave, then in the left column should be a "config" link, click on that, then, there will be a "back up now" option. Click that, and Airwave will take a backup.

    2) - I believe (might be worth checking your specific model) all Aruba switches have dual flash images. I always copy the "current" version to the secondary flash, then put the new version onto the primary. This way, if something goes wrong, I can just tell the switch to boot from either partition. The switches have the ability to copy the flash to an external server, however, I personally have never needed it, but your mileage may vary.
