Copies a file (config,log,txt...etc) from any location to the Access Point, wireless controller, or service platform and vice-versa



Copying a new config file to an existing running-config file merges it with the existing running-config file on the wireless controller. Both the existing running-config and the new config file are applied as the current running-config. Copying a new config file to a start-up config file replaces the existing start-up config file with the parameters of the new file. It is recommended that you erase the existing start-up config file and then copy the new config file to the startup config.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000
