Backing up configurations

Always keep a backup copy of your configuration files, so you can restore the configuration in the event the configuration is lost or you make unintentional changes.

This operation is not supported in logical chassis cluster mode, because the running-config will be auto-synced to the startup-config.

The following recommendations apply:

  • Keep backup copies of the startup configuration for all switches in the fabric.
  • Upload the configuration backup copies to an external host or to an attached Brocade-branded USB device.
  • Avoid copying configuration files from one switch to another. Instead restore the switch configuration files from the backup copy.
