Copy Configs via TFTP


IOS Switches/Routers/ASA:

copy running-config tftp

Nexus (5K/7K):

copy running-config tftp://10.200.1.11/nexus01_062116.bak

ASR1000-X/9×00 Switches (VRF Aware):

ip tftp source-interface {interface}
copy running-config tftp

WLC:
WLC’s are different when it comes to backing up the config to a TFTP server. It’s not as easy as a Switch or Router. These are the commands you need to run:

transfer upload mode tftp
transfer upload datatype config
transfer upload filename wlc-ha-backup
transfer upload path .
transfer upload serverip 10.200.1.11
transfer upload start

You should see an output like this:

Mode............................................. TFTP
TFTP Server IP................................... 10.200.1.11
TFTP Path........................................ ./
TFTP Filename.................................... wlc-ha-backup
Data Type........................................ Config File
Encryption....................................... Disabled
