ESW540 Switch

I would like to copy the config from an existing ESW540 switch to a replacement of the same model. How would I do this? There is no CLI in the ESW540's.

Brock,

Very similar to first steps. see below

From the WEB GUI of the ESW540 select the following:

Maintenance > File Management > Copy Configuration File

Choose either via TFTP or via HTTP

Choose UPGRADE radial button this time

Choose Source File Name (the one you backed up from the previous steps)

Choose Destination File Type as running config

Click Apply and you should be set.

Never used the device before, but does the GUI have an option to download the config to a TFTP or FTP server and than upload it to the new device?

How about a USB port on the device?
