Using TFTP to Upload the Configuration

You can upload the current configuration to a TFTP server on your network. Using TFTP, the uploaded configuration file retains your system configuration and is saved in XML format. This allows you to send a copy of the configuration file to Extreme Networks Technical Support for problem-solving purposes.

If you upload a configuration file and see the following message:

Error: No such file or directory

Check to make sure that you entered the filename correctly, including the .cfg extension, and that you entered the correct host name or IP address for the TFTP server.

If your upload is successful, the switch displays a message similar to the following:
Uploading megtest1.cfg to TFTPhost ... done!
You can also upload the current configuration in ASCII format from the switch to a TFTP server on your network. For more information, see Uploading ASCII-Formatted Configuration Files.
