Backing up 2930m switch configs

  • 1.  Backing up 2930m switch configs

    Posted Sep 25, 2019 10:38 PM
    New to the Aruba switches and still in the process of figuring out things. I'm trying to figure out how to backup the configs of the switches either by command line or gui so I can have a copy if a switch ever needed to be replaced, etc... We have 5 stacks in different locations. Thank you for your help, Matt

    what switch firmware are you running at?

     

    https://support.arubanetworks.com/Documentation/tabid/77/DMXModule/512/EntryId/10226/Default.aspx 

    Backup the Flash File System in the CLI
    (host) #backup flash
    (host) #copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz tftp: <tftphost> <destfilename>
    (host) #copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz ftp: <ftphost> <username> <destfilename>
    (host) #copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz scp: <scphost> <username> <destfilename>
    (host) #copy flash: flashbackup.tar.gz usb: <destfilename>
    Restore the Flash File System in the WebUI
    1. Navigate to the Maintenance > Copy Files page.
    2. For Source Selection, specify the server to which the flashbackup.tar.gz file was previously copied.
    3. For Destination Selection, select Flash File System.
    4. Click Apply.

    it is for MAS switch

     

    for Aruba OS Switch, you can use

    copy run tftp://X.X.X.X/myconfig.cfg

    On ArubaOS-Switch (formerly Provision switches)

    From the CLI; capture a show run to a text file and save it.

    From the Web GUI. Select Configurations> Management. In the right side, in the Download box, Click Download and save the file locally. It will default to config.pcc. PCC files can be opened with notepad or similar.

    BTW, if you are using the Traditional web GUI instead of the Improved GUI, expand System and click on Updates/Downloads. Highlight the config file in the left side, then click on Download in the Configuration file section to store the config.pcc file locally.

    I saw the Configurations> Management option to download, but wasn't sure if that was it.
