Saving the running configuration to a file

If you want to save the changes you made to the configuration, but you do not want the changes to take effect when the switch reboots, you can save the running configuration to a file. You can apply the changes at some later time.

  1. Enter the copy running-config file command in privileged EXEC mode. Specify the file name as the file URL.
    switch# copy running-config flash://myconfig
  2. Verify the transaction by listing the directory contents.
    switch# dir
