Hi SAN Folks,
I have tried to upload a saved config from a damaged switch (5100) to a new 5100. But the config will not correct installed.
What is the correct procedure to replace a demaged switch and configure it with a saved config ?

Well since serials are different between the switches the license part of the config will not work.
An option would be to only download an copy of the zoning info.
An other option is stripping all things that make an switch unique related to the hardware,
like the licenses but keep things like DID and upload that to the new switch.
If you're not sure upload the config from the damaged switch, perhaps we can give pointers based on your config

Thank you for your answer.
As a have talk to dion, we will do another test with your tips - I will give an update in the next days.

In some FOS versions you have problems to import the config file onto the same switch if you have configure a timezone and tsclockserver.
These can not be imported and has to be delete from the configfile before you start the import.
I hope this helps,
