Backing up configuration

We are using a Brocade (Foundry) FastIron FLS 648 network switch.  Is there a way to backup the switch configuration externally if you do not have the administrator password?

Hi raturner,

Well, I checked and unfortunately I haven't been able to find a way without that access level so there doesn't appear to be a way.

Hi raturner,

     Not unless you have put something in place beofre you lost the password   e.g. setup SNMP access or BNA - then you would be able to get the configs.


     Put that being said, I suggest you connect via console and reset the password on the FLS - for this you will need to reboot the switch - so down time is needed.  Also note there is a risk that config was not saved that you should take into account.
