Loading and Saving Configuration Files

For easy configuration management, the HP 9308M, HP 9304M, and HP 6308M-SX routing switches and the HP
6208M-SX switch support both the download and upload of configuration files between the switch or routing
switch and a TFTP server on the network.
NOTE: The boot flash must have release 2.0 or later boot code installed for a TFTP download of the configuration
file to the system flash to be active without a system reset. To determine the system's boot code versions, enter
the show version or show flash command.
You can upload either the startup configuration file or the running configuration file to the TFTP server for backup
and use in booting the system.
Startup configuration file – This file contains the configuration information that is currently saved in flash.
To display this file, enter the show configuration command at any CLI prompt.
Running configuration file – This file contains the configuration active in the system RAM but not yet saved
to flash. These changes could represent a short-term requirement or general configuration change. To
display this file, enter the show running-config or write terminal command at any CLI prompt.
Each device can have one startup configuration file and one running configuration file. The startup configuration
file is shared by both flash modules. The running configuration file resides in DRAM.
Replacing the Startup Configuration with the Running Configuration
After you make configuration changes to the active system, you can save those changes by writing them to flash
memory. When you write configuration changes to flash memory, you replace the startup configuration with the
running configuration.
USING THE CLI
To replace the startup configuration with the running configuration, enter the following command at any Enable or
CONFIG command prompt:
HP9300# write memory

changes to flash.
Replacing the Running Configuration with the Startup Configuration

configuration, use one of the following methods.

EXEC level of the CLI:
