You can download previously saved XML formatted XOS configuration files from a TFTP host to the switch to modify the switch configuration. Do not use a text editor to view or modify your switch configuration files; modify your switch configurations directly in the CLI.
To view your current switch configuration in ASCII-format, see Uploading ASCII-Formatted Configuration Files for more information about uploading and downloading ASCII-formatted configuration files.
For more information about TFTP, see Using the Trivial File Transfer Protocol.
Where the optons are:
If you download a configuration file and see the following message:
Error: Transfer timed out
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 download is successful, the switch displays a message similar to the following:
Downloading megtest2.cfg to switch... done!
Configurations are downloaded and saved into the switch nonvolatile memory. The configuration is applied after you reboot the switch.
If the configuration currently running in the switch does not match the configuration that the switch used when it originally booted, an asterisk (*) appears before the command line prompt when using the CLI.
You can also download the current configuration in ASCII format from a TFTP server on your network to the switch. For more information, see Uploading ASCII-Formatted Configuration Files.
