Yes I've tried  I can't seem to get this part to work either Maybe I shouldn't be messing around with cisco switches I just wanted this to be easy to set up but this type of stuff is beyond my knowledge

Okay, I got it to do something I'm just now lost on if I can just replace the config.text with a new config.text with my info and not having to copy from the old config file?

 

If the config is not matter yes you can do that way, some people want to preserve the config only to change the password.
