How To Take the Backup of Cisco SAN Switch To Remote Machine

Hi I have configured the SAN switches(MultiLayer 9148) including zoning . Now For the Safer side I need to take backup of these switches.


Follow the Below Steps to configure Backup


Step 1 :- Login To your SAN Switch , Click on VSAN under the Data center , then Right click on VSAN name , then click on “Edit Local Full Zone Database”


Step 2 :- Go To File ----> Backup ----> All Zones , like below figure



Step 3 :- When we click on  All Zones in step2 , we will get the below window ,



As we can use TFP,SFTP,SCP and FTP to take the backup on the remote machine. In my Case I am using ftp . After mentioning all FTP  related details click on the backup



Step 4 :- Once the backup is completed , you will get message like “Successful Backup” as   shown below



Taking Backup from the CLI Mode :


Command :1  “copy running-config startup-config”  


Above command will take the backup on the local system


Command :2  “copy running-config tftp/ftp/sft:location”


Above Command is used to take backup on the remote machines
