Brocade FCX648, How to save config to FTP?

Hello All,

I'm running the command "copy startup-config tftp 10.x.x.x startup-config", in order to try and copy the config out to an obvious TFTP server, but this does not work.

I continually receive a message stating below:

Invalid input -> copy startup-config tftp 10.x.x.x startup-config

Type ? for a list

Any help would be appreciated, the guides seem to have the incorrect command.

Thanks!

Hi Eric,

the command you use seems to be ok. Make sure you are in "enabled" mode when issuing the command.

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2>

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2>ena

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2#copy

  copy                Copy between flash, tftp, config/code

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2#copy start

  startup-config   From startup config

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2#copy startup-config tftp 10.1.1.1

  ASCII string   File name

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2#copy startup-config tftp 10.1.1.1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is what it looks like, when you try to run the command not being in "enabled" mode.

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2>copy startup-config tftp 10.1.1.1 startup-config

Invalid input -> copy startup-config tftp 10.1.1.1 startup-config

Type ? for a list

BR-telnet@FGS648P-2>

Yes, that worked, had to be in "enabled mode", so once I did that it worked just fine.

Thanks!
