Usage Information

Dell EMC Networking OS supports a maximum of 100 files at the root directory level on both the internal and external flash.

When copying a file to a remote location (for example, using Secure Copy [SCP]), enter only the keywords and Dell EMC Networking OS prompts you for the rest of the information. For example, when using SCP, you can enter copy running-config scp: where running-config is the source and the target is specified in the ensuing prompts. Dell EMC Networking OS prompts you to enter any required information for the named destination — remote destination, destination filename, user ID, password, and so forth.

When you use the copy running-config startup-config command to copy the running configuration to the startup configuration file, Dell EMC Networking OS creates a backup file on the internal flash of the startup configuration.

When you load the startup configuration or a configuration file from a network server such as TFTP to the running configuration, the configuration is added to the running configuration. This does not replace the existing running configuration. Commands in the configuration file has precedence over commands in the running configuration.

Dell EMC Networking OS supports copying the running-configuration to a TFTP server, an FTP server, or a remote NFS file system. For example:

  • copy running-config tftp:
  • copy running-config ftp:
  • copy running-config nfsmount://<mount-point>/filepath

You can compress the running configuration by grouping all the VLANs and the physical interfaces with the same property. You can store the operating configuration to the startup config in Compressed mode and perform an image downgrade without any configuration loss.

Example
DellEMC#copy running-config scp:
Address or name of remote host []: 192.168.1.1
Port number of the server [22]: 22
Destination file name [startup-config]:
User name to login remote host: username
Password to login remote host: 
!
4080 bytes successfully copied
DellEMC# 
In this copy scp: flash: example, specifying SCP in the first position indicates that you need to specify the target in the ensuing prompts. Entering flash: in the second position indicates that the target is the internal flash. The source is on a secure server running secure shell (SSH), so you are prompted for the user datagram protocol (UDP) port of the SSH server on the remote host.
Example
DellEMC# copy running-config nfsmount://<mount-point>/filepath
Destination file name [test.txt]:
User name to login remote host: usrname
Password to login remote host:
