    Hi, are you referring to (Switch) current running configuration? if so the configuration is a text file that can be copied and pasted into the new Switch provided that source and destination share the same OS and the same number of ports (exact the same hardware configuration): given that you're asking for transferring the configuration from one 2530 to another...If I were you I would copy the running configuration of the source Switch and adapt (removing/changing/adapting unnecessary configuration lines) to cope with the destination Switch (especially if the destination Switch has a different - lower - number of ports).

    Does it support the command as below:
    ProCurve# copy startup-config tftp 10.28.227.105
       d:\configs\sw8200

    And how to find switch mac information?
    Thanks a lot

    Hi, yes.

    The HP/HPE/Aruba 2530 switch series currently uses ArubaOS-Switch operating system if it's running recent versions (the AOS-S operating system is the successor of the HP ProVision operating system used on older HP ProCurve switch series). The AOS-S supports the copy of running/startup configurations to a TFTP Server with the command:


    copy running-config tftp <a.b.c.d> <filename> add-ignore-tag pc (or instead of pc you can use the unix option)

    Where the add-ignore-tag option adds the tag "IGNORE" in the header of the uploaded configuration file.

    With regard to the Switch's base MAC Address try with the show system command.

    Thanks, but I run command as below, it failed to work.
    copy running-config tftp 192.168.1.230 d:\test add-ignore-tag PC
    TFTP download in progress
    Error in sending rq message.Exceed 5
    retransmits

    "Peer unreacheable" speaks for itself, is the Switch able to reach your TFTP Server 192.168.1.230? Is the TFTP Server able to reach the IP address assigned to your Switch? ...and I believe you shouldn't specify any path (do not use d:\test but use just test if test is the file name you want to use by saving the running configuration into the TFTP Root directory).

    I don't install TFTP server in 192.168.1.230, my condition is as below, 
    1. I use putty to access switch, and it connect switch successfully.
    2. I would like to backup config to the same computer(192.168.1.230), so I use RJ45 cable to connect  switch, and change ip to make computer can ping switch(192.168.1.234).
    How can I backup switch setting to the computer (192.168.1.230) when I don't install TFTP SERVER?
    Thanks a lot.

    OK.

    You *need* a TFTP Server installed and properly configured on your Computer (192.168.1.230) and you need that Computer's Firewall doesn't drop incoming TFTP messages.

    You then need to ensure that Switch (192.168.1.234) can ping the Computer and vice-versa.

    Once the above conditions are all met you can try to transfer a copy of the Switch's running configuration via TFTP to your Computer (which is acting as a TFTP Server) with the provided command.

    If you use PuTTY then use the console log to copy the config. So do a
    show config
    for a listing of the startup-config and then save the screen output.
    On the other switch log on with PuTTY and do
    config
    to get into config mode.
    Then copy the saved startup-config to the screen. But start at the first real command which should be the hostname.
    Have a look at any errors, other than the default errors you probably get with vlan 1 trying to release ports to another vlan that is not defined yet.
    This may not be the "official" way to do it but it works for me for the past 10+ years when resoring to another clean switch. :-)
    Do an
    erase startup-config
    to create a blank config first if needed.

    Of course the tftp server way is better but then you run into other problems when trying to restore a config to another switch. The first few lines identify the switch the config belongs to. Restoring it to another switch will generate an error. They may look like:
    ; J9576A Configuration Editor; Created on release #KA.16.04.0023
    ; Ver #10:19.03.9f.f8.92.34.59.3c.6b.fb.ff.fd.ff.ff.3f.ef:ec
    The second line identifies the switch and you need to remove it, and probably the first line too, to restore it on another switch.

    Can I use ftp server of win10, because it did not need to find another software to install? Thanks.
