Cisco SAN Switch Backup 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
