Hello and welcome back to I see Andy one interconnecting Cisco networking devices Bar one, this is Episode 8 to 4. Configuration files.
I enter a nearly very stricter for this course. Last week, we talked about how to recover your IOS devices. You forget your password on this episode of recovering the summer configuration files on Cisco devices and out how to set up a automatic backup of your files.
So the object is gonna look at backup in restoring your conflict files
and quick processing here. Hopefully, I should remember, What is the running config or where's the running configure stored?
All right, it is any ram. Remember that? That is where it is, uh, loaded, too. After the start of configures loaded, it pushes it into the ram.
So managing the files. So the one that we've been using the most out of William is that copy runs started the copy running config started coughing. From there, we can actually What we can do is we're gonna actually set up a backup of our startup config, um,
to a t f c p server or an FTP server. SCP, whatever you want, we can set up an automatic backup. That will go where we want to sew the time period of seven minutes. We have 14. 40 is one day
s. We had this essentially backing up to a tee FTP server every day and then also with the right memory, allows it to automatically back up when we do it. Right, ma'am.
Commander. Right. Memory command.
So if we look at the configure replace command that will actually replace the running config if you give it a location,
if you look at the top one there the configure, a place picture that's those yuk unbanked it all from ftp sftp Um,
all those different things
what that will do, is it instead of because of you trying to a different type or a start, run our copy Start, run. Um, you can run a lot of promise, but if you do this could figure replace command with the location of it.
It will actually run a comparison and say, Hey, okay, you know what kind of goat on the west side by side say OK, This one is supposed to have this or this isn't supposed to be here, and it will swap things out going down that list, comparing the two config until you have the proper configuration in there.
So you can actually do this without having to reload a switch. So that's the thing is you know,
is if you do it your way, you actually to reload the switch.
So we have quite a few options to actually erase the start of config If you want to. We can do a writer race and do a a race started config and erase envy Ram location.
So look at the episode recap here. We looked at doing manual backups with the
copier on start and rode with that copy came in. We can also do a copy running config to the USB driver. Copy, uh, started config to a t peace or something like that. We could do a manual backup of each of these files,
and we can also create his automatic backups with the archive command.
And finally, we can do a We can restore the configured with the could figure replace command without having to do a reload
and give me a few seconds here. What unit of time is the archive? Time period command in a few seconds.
All right, that is in minutes
in the next episode, and the last episode we're going to look at the Iowa is packages and activation of the different feature sets.
As always, if you guys have questions, you know, feel free to shoot me. Message. Otherwise, thank you for watching this episode. Now look forward to seeing you. The rest of them.
