I have a switch that has no management network connectivity. In fact I need to try rebooting the switch in order to try fixing it.
That's all well and good, but I need to dump the configuration out of the switch, but as you can guess, that's not going to work when the ethernet connectivity to the management port isn't there.
I know I can make a supportsave dump of the entire switch. My question is, how do I edit the support save so that I can extract the configuration, and potentially reload it into a new switch?
Is there some way I can test this? I simply cannot afford to reboot the switch and not get my management connectivity back. If this fails and I still can't get management connectivity, I am simply going to replace the switch and load the captured configuration on it.

Yes, the configshow from a supportsave contains much of the configuration. But how can you gather supportsaves with management network connectivity?
