copy config file

I have a 4506 switch and a 4503 switch.

the 4506 switch has already been configured with ip address etc and the config I want.

I want to be able to copy the config file and put it on the 4503.

So I plan to do this

set up the 4503 with an ip address. do a copy tftp run

so will this running config overwrite the 4503 config and its ip address?

Is this the way to do it right?

Hi Tony,

Complete these steps to upload a configuration file from a switch to a TFTP server for storage:

Step 1: Log into the switch through the console port or a Telnet session.

Step 2: Upload the switch configuration to the TFTP server with the copy config tftp command.

Step 3: Specify the IP address or host name of the TFTP server and the destination filename.

The file is uploaded to the TFTP server.

In order to move files and images between a CatOS switch and TFTP server through SNMP, configure the switch as shown:

Step 1: Connect the switch to the workstation to be used as the TFTP server through console and Ethernet.

Step 2: Make sure that the IP address is in the same subnet as the workstation. Ping to make sure the switch connects to the TFTP server. Refer to this example:

Cat4506#set interface sc0 1 Cat4006#ping

Moving files and images should now be possible between the switch and TFTP server.
