how to backup a "show tech" and a "running config" from MDS switches

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!!!

I currently use the copy startup-config tftp://<server>/<switch>.bk  

 

With the above command the <switch>.bk name is always the same so it will not save the new backup file because it already exist on the server.  How can I use something like a environment date variable so that is saves with a different name for each backup (E.I  <switch>_data.bk

 

Thanks

Disregard this post. The solution was posted in another reply.
