I am not familiar with H3C switch and would like to ask someone for help on how to login and backup startup config.
I was able to connect thru console port with my laptop and then tried with Cisco IOS command, e.g. enable for privilege mode  but did not work.

Many Thanks Predrag! it's helpful and I can reference to Cisco IOS command. Before I close this question, could you please help one more thing on reviewing the following?

In H3C, I simply want to backup config by copy and paste to a notepad as text file.
>system-view
>display current-configuration

Once output all config detail, I can just copy and paste to a text file, named H3CSWbackup.txt.
In case i need to restore, I can just paste the config back to the switch under system-view mode, correct?

Last time I worked with H3C was 2 years ago, but if i remember correctly it is the same as in Cisco, as long as you have all commands in line you can paste it.
Example would be:
en
config t
interface gi0/1
.....
 
if you have something added
>en
>conf t
.....
sure it will not work.

However, easier way to backup and restore configuration can be find in documentation.
Don't know your exact series of device, but sure you can find it on H3C site, here is example:
01-Fundamentals Configuration Guide
The way from documentation can be way much better to prevent yourself from accidentally cutting yourself off of device in the case you are restoring configuration manually from remote location.
