The switch maintains two configuration files, the running-config and the startup-config.
The startup-config is saved in the flash-memory of the switch. It is the saved configuration und this one is used while booting the switch.
After boot-process is done, the startup-config is copied to the volatile memory und used as running-config. All configuration changes are made in the volatile memory. So you have a possibilty to try changes in the running-config. If you are satisfied that the changes are satisfactory, use the command
to make the changes permanent. If you wouldn’t do so, the switch will not use the changed options when booting next time.
The following commands are useful to handle the two configuration files:
|show config||Display a listing of the startup-configuration file of the switch.|
|show running-config||Display a listing of the running-configuration file of the switch.|
|show config status||Compares the current running-configuration file to the startup-config
and determines whether there are updates or no.
To reset the switch to the Factory-Default configuration use the following command:
If you want to make a backup of the configuration file to an other host you must have a tftp-Server running on this host. The following command saves the running-config to the host 10.0.1.37 to the file “ProCurveConf”
copy running-config tftp 10.0.1.37 ProCurveConf
To use a saved configuration from a remote host, try the following command:
copy tftp running_config 10.0.1.37 ProCurveConf
The last command replaces the running-config with a saved config named “ProCurveConf” on host 10.0.1.37.
