Applying a Summit Switch Configuration File

I have saved a Summit 450 config. in both XML and ASCII formats.  I have been able to successfully copy it to the memory card of a Summit 460 switch.  

The 450 is running  ExtremeXOS version 12.4.2.17 v1242b17-patch1-5  and the 460 is running 12.5.1.6  

The file is 16kb and I can see config setting when opening in notepad.

When I save the config  -  I say yes to update the database, use config {name} , and reboot.  When I boot up I am back at no password, no  vlans, no ip addressing, etc...  Bascially a default fresh boot.  I can go through sh config and copy commands over but I was wanting to see what is wrong so if I ever get into a situation that I have to restore a switch I know it will work.  Difference in models and XOS make a difference?  Flag to set?  If I need to recreate this config on the new switch any tips as to a method? (Save a text as a summit script?)

Thanks in advance

I've always just copy & pasted from notepad into the telnet session.
Then save, of course.

Just copy the entire cfg contents, or just the sh config results?
