BACKUP and RESTORE Cisco Running-config To TFTP Server

TFTP Server IP -10.0.0.2

Fast Ethernet port 0/0:- 10.0.0.1

R1>enable
R1#copy running-config tftp:
Address or name of remote host []? 10.0.0.2
Destination filename [R1-confg]?
.!!
[OK - 359 bytes]

359 bytes copied in 3.078 secs (0 bytes/sec)
R1#

Now we have taken the backup of running configuration. To verify it click on Server and select config tab and click on TFTP and scroll down. At the end of window you can see the backup files.as R1-confg

Now erase existing startup config:

R1>enable
R1#erase startup-config
Erasing the nvram filesystem will remove all configuration files! Continue? [confirm][OK]
Erase of nvram: complete
%SYS-7-NV_BLOCK_INIT: Initialized the geometry of nvram
R1#reload
Proceed with reload? [confirm]

Now you will see default router prompt. We have to do some basic setting before connecting the TFTP Server.

Router>enable
Router#configure terminal
Router(config)#interface fastethernet 0/0
Router(config-if)#ip address 10.0.0.1 255.0.0.0
Router(config-if)#no shutdown
Router(config-if)#exit
Router(config)#exit
Router#
Router#copy tftp running-config
Address or name of remote host[]? 10.0.0.2
Source file name[]?R1-confg
Router#
Router#copy tun st
Share.
