I am working remotely on a WS-2960X and want to change the config. If it fails I will lose connectivity. If that occurs, I want it to roll back after a short period of time. I have seen how to do this before but I can't find it in search, probably not using the correct term.

You can use the reload in x command.   x being the number of minutes you want to reload the switch. As long as you don't wr the new configs to startup it should reload with the previous config before you got kicked out.

After you successfully make the change, make sure to do a reload cancel before the time limit hits or it will reload on you.
