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.
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.
