Initial Switch Configuration

I am looking for a minimal baseline switch configuration to use setting up a set of switches.

The process now is to reset the switch to factory defaults, assign an ip address with switch/telnet password.  Then telnet to the switch and manually enter commands to set up ssh/scp.  Secure copy a baseline switch configuration file to startup-config.  Finally, secure shell login to the switch and copy startup-config running-config.  This is repeated for a chain of about a dozen switches.

Is there a simpler solution?  What is a minimal set of startup-config entries?

Thanks for any suggestions.

Initial Switch Configuration

A simpler solution could be the use of "Smart Install":

But I'm not sure if setting up the environment is useful for just a dozen switches.
