hi, guys

I am a newbie of MDS switches.

but I got a request this week asking me to actively backup a "show tech" and a "running config" from the MDS switches........

so my questions are:

1) if I want to back up MDS configurations, which commnds should I run? or just "show tech" is enough?

2) is the MDS itself have the backup function? for example can ftp the configuration to someplace?

please help point me the right direction or is there any official referece docs I can refer to ?

thanks in advance!!!

1) to backup MDS configuration you want to run this command:

copy running-config

and then you have multiple options where you can send it to for example you could tftp it

copy running-config tftp://yourftpserver/mdsbackup.txt

2) i don't believe there is a native solution that performs scheduled backups but it's say easy to write a little bash/perl script.
