Cisco Catylyst 4506

How do you save the configuration from a catalyst 4506 supervisor engine?

If that supervisor engine went down can someone list instructions to copy the config back after a new suipervisor engine gets installed?

I'm pretty sure that's CatOS.  You will need to be in enable mode for this to work. At that command prompt, just type "enable" then enter. It should prompt you for an enable passowrd, enter it and you should get a prompt like this: WSWO-F02S02 > (enable)

You need a TFTP server to save the config files to. If you do not have one, i prefer tftpd32 (http://tftpd32.jounin.net/tftpd32_download.html) This app should be installed on the workstation or server you want the files to be archived on. Note th IP of the server, you will need it to send your config files over.

If you dont know the name of your switch config file, type dir at the enable prompt. Look for the config file (something .cfg, possibly the hostname.cfg, or c4500.cfg, or even switch.cfg. if you still arent sure, make a small change (like changing a port description, then look for hte newest dated file.cfg, thats probably it)

At the switch enable prompt, type
WSWO-F02S02 > (enable) copy config tftp

IP address or name of remote host []? 172.16.1.1 (or whatever your server IP is)

Name of file to copy to []? (enter the name of your config file here)

Upload configuration to tftp:c4500.cfg, (y/n) [n]? y

and after you see the "Configuration has been copied successfully." message, you are set. you can see the config file with a good text editor.

save it off box for archiving?

and is this catalyst running IOS or CatOS? (type "version" and if it's CatOS you will see info, or type "show version" and you will see info, paste either result back here please. neither one can hurt your config or operational state.)

thanks for the response.

I have a spare sup engine, i was looking how to store the config somewhere so if the current sup engine went down i would have steps to replce it with my spare and load back up the configuration.

We will need the complete output from either a "show version" or a "version" command, please. I think this is the version of the boot rom chip.
