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
