I hope someone can explain why when I try to do a configupload it always seems to return with an error message " configupload not permitted "
The switches are sitting is a remote data centre, I have full access to the network from my office.
I'm using 3cDeamon to be the ftp sever on my laptop, I can see the connection hit my ftp server but then the message within the 3cDeamon is "connection closed by Peer"
I decided to try again with an account on our ftp server within the data center which is local to the brocades, From the brocade CLI I can ping the server that hosts the FTP server, I have tried again but the brocade still comes back with the same message " configupload not permitted "
I'm logging in with Admin rights, I can access the switches via telnet / http . but getting the config file off the switches seems to be a not happening.

From CLI (telnet/SSH) session issue "configshow | grep -i cfgload" command. If "cfgload.secure" parameter is set to 1, then secure config upload and download is enforced. In which case you will have to use SCP instead of FTP, or disable the enforcement (configure > cfgload attributes > enforce secure config upload/download).

thanks for the reply, I ran the command, and the cfgload.secure is already disabled, Do you have any other Idea what might be causing the problem ?
I'm using Procomm to connect, dontknow it that makes a difference

I looked up Fabric OS troubleshooting guide. Maybe there are some clues there:
If your login to the FTP or SCP server has failed, verify the username and password are correct.
• You do not have configuration upload permission on the switch.
There may be some restrictions if you are using Admin Domains or Role-Based Access Control.
For more information on these types of restrictions, refer to the Fabric OS Administrator’s
• You do not have permission to write to directory on the FTP or SCP server.
